CYPRUS QSL MATTERS ---> Baz, 5B4AHO has retired as QSL manager for the Pafos
Radio Club, after 10 years of stirling work.  The new QSL manager is Norman,
5B4AIE.  QSLs for  the following calls  should be  sent via 5B4AIE:  5B4PRC,
C4EURO, C4EU, P3EU, P3R and 5B70VE.
QSLing 5B stations in general: a reminder that many Cyprus  stations have  a
QSL Manager who is not resident in Cyprus. It is therefore pointless to send
QSLs for these  stations to the  Cyprus QSL Bureau -  the cards  will almost
certainly not be delivered to their intended recipient. A full list of these
stations  can  be  found  here: [TNX 5B4AHJ, CARS  QSL
Bureau Manager]

HV ON CLUB LOG ---> The logs for  HV0A (QSOs after 2 February 2008),  HV4NAC
(QSOs after 26 January 2008),  HV50VR and  HV6SP are  now available  on Club
Log. They will be updated soon after each activation. The logs are regularly
uploaded to LoTW. [TNX IK0PRG]

radio waves.  Participating  stations  include  3V8YOTA,  4O1YOTA,  4O2YOTA,
See for  information on the event  and
