9Q0HQ ---> Henk, ON4AHF and Herwig, ON4BNI were active  as  9Q0HQ  on  23-29
April. They operated from the Association  des  Radio  Amateurs  du  Congo's
station in Kinshasa, and will upload  their  logs  to  Club  Log  when  they
return home. QSL for this activity via ON4AHF.
Elvira, IV3FSG [425DXN 1302] is currently active as 9Q0HQ/1  from  Kimbondo,
and will in her turn be active as 9Q0HQ from Kinshasa on 1-22 May.  QSL  for
her activities via IK3GES.

DIGITAL MODE MOST WANTED SURVEY ---> This srvey provides digital mode  DXers
worldwide the opportunity to specify which DXCC Entities  they  still  need.
"For the purposes of this survey, need is defined by you, the DXer.  If  you
just worked a new DX entity last  month  and  are  confident  of  getting  a
confirmation, do not list it as 'needed'. However, if you worked  a  country
three years ago and have not been  able  to  get  confirmation,  you  should
probably check it as a 'needed' country". The survey will end on 13  May  at
23:59 and can be found on http://survey.hamdocs.com/index.php/468764.

MOUNT ATHOS ---> Monk Iakovos, SV2RSG has been licenced since  2015  and  is
active from Mount Athos. As "a permanent  resident"  at  the  Koutloumousiou
Monastery, he says, he does  not  use  /A,  because  "it  means  Alternative
location of the station". QSL via SV1RP (direct).

NCDXF NEWSLETTER ---> The Northern California DX  Foundation's  Spring  2016
Newsletter  is  now  available  at  www.ncdxf.org/pages/newsletter.html.  It
contains articles on  VP8STI  &  VP8SGI  (South  Sandwich  Islands  &  South
Georgia), K5P (Palmyra) and VK9WA (Willis Islands).

PIRATE ALERT ---> 'Hassan from Baghdad' has been "pirating  and  bootlegging
multiple calls for several years. He has been heard  bootlegging  the  calls
YI1HR, YI1H, YI1HRP and YI1HI and pirating the calls YI1BGD,  YI1IRQ,  YI1DZ
and most recently TA7/YI1RZ. Unfortunately in Iraq there does  not  seem  to
be any enforcement to take Hassan off the air, much less do  anything  about
the situation. Therefore let's get the word out not to work or  spot  Hassan
who operates on 20 Meters SSB, usually around 14178-14188. In fact the  best
policy is to ignore him completely on the air". [TNX The Daily DX]
