BEST COMMUNICATION AWARD ---> Sponsored by  DX Coffee and  DX University, it
takes into  account the Public Relations side  of a DXpedition, i.e. the in-
formation (daily reports,  pictures, videos, forums,  propagation hints, on-
line logs, operating  advice, etc) provided to the  amateur radio  community
through the DXpedition website and other channels.  The 2015 Best Communica-
Award has been assigned to K1N (Navassa Island), with "special mentions"  to

"Press Release #1" is available on

CLUB LOG'S MOST WANTED LIST ---> The latest Most Wanted List,  generated  on
31 August, is available  at  The
information is derived  from  QSOs  uploaded  to  Club  Log  (currently  375
million log entries available for analysis) and, to  improve  quality,  only
QSOs that have QSLs confirmed are considered to be worked.

K9AJ/VY0 & KD6WW/VY0 ---> The  recent  operations  from  NA-159  (K9AJ/VY0 &
KD6WW/VY0) and NA-196 (KD6WW/VY0)  have been approved  for IOTA credit.  The
OQRS on Club Log has been enabled: search for K9AJ/VY0_NA-159, KD6WW/VY0_NA-
159 and KD6WW/VY0_NA-196.  The updated final QSO total for  both IOTA opera-
tions is 5,176 QSOs. Mike, K9AJ and Bruce, KD6WW do not expect early  donors
"to spend additional $ to get their QSL cards. For our donors, please e-mail
the operator (K9AJ or KD6WW)  your QSO  info and your  preferred mailing ad-
dress and we will send you a card when we mail the OQRS cards".

M0URX & M0OXO: NEW QSL  MANAGEMENT  SYSTEM ---> The  Perseverance  DX  Group
(PDXG) and the United Radio QSL Management Bureau, owned and operated by Tim
Beaumont (M0URX),  have entered  into an exclusive  relationship for  United
Radio and its partner M0OXO Online  QSL Request Service operated by  Charles
Wilmott (M0OXO)  to use  PDXG's QSL Management  System. Current, future  and
legacy call signs supported by these firms are included in the agreement.
The  application  was  introduced  during  the  TX3X  Chesterfield   Islands
DXpedition (October 2015), and many enhancements have been added since then.
This fully integrated cloud based application allows authorized users around
the world access  to a host  of QSL management  functions.  By  dramatically
simplifying and  automating the  process a QSL  manager's workload  and time
commitment are significantly reduced.
To DXers, the application presents the familiar functions of Log Search  and
OQRS.  Busted Call and  Not in Log  inquires  are handled by  an  integrated
(form) process that greatly  reduces the need for  e-mails. The  application
integrates PayPal donor information with logged QSOs to recognize those  who
supported the DXpedition for expedited  confirmation handling.  Address  and
QSL card label management functions are  seamlessly  integrated for ease  of
To date, Tim has loaded the logs for 140  DX stations, over 2 million  QSOs.
Charles  will soon begin  uploading 150 logs.  Questions may be directed  to
Pista, HA5AO or Gene, K5GS at their address. [TNX K5GS]

NOT THE MANAGER ---> Russ, WA3FRP says he is not the  QSL manager for  EP4YN
any longer.

QSL GALLERY ---> The large collection of QSL cards  on  Les  Nouvelles  DX's
web site has been updated. Fifteen different galleries include 14,038  cards
for the ten Most  Wanted  DXCC  Entities  (2004-15),  the  62  deleted  DXCC
Entities, obsolete prefixes,  stations  from  Maghreb  from  1945  to  1962,
Allied Forces stations in Germany (1945-70), special stations  commemorating

Francaises), the various French DXCC island Entities in the  Pacific  Ocean,
the Indian Ocean and the Americas (from 1945 to 1970),  pre-1945  countries,
French Departments and CONUS, plus a  gallery  for  cards  not  accepted  by
DXCC. Your participation is encouraged: [TNX F6AJA].
