                   >>> DXPEDITIONING - BEHIND THE SCENES <<<

Edited by  Neville  Cheadle (G3NUG)  and  Steve Telenius-Lowe  (G4JVG),  this
182+XXXIV-page book has been written by members of the 1998 9M0C Spratly team
(65,500 QSOs in  12 days). It  is not  a story  of the  DXpedition but  draws
heavily on the experiences at 9M0C and on many other DXpeditions in order  to
offer an extensive coverage of virtually  all aspects of a major  expedition,
from  early  planning  through  QSLing.  Full  information  is  available  at (where the book can be ordered). All the
surpluses from sales of this book will  flow to a new organisation (the  Five
Star DXers Association) and will be used as  part of the funding for a  major
DXpedition probably to the Central Pacific in March 2001.

CWJF CONTEST ---> The Manchester Mineira CW Contest will take place on  20-21
May; further information  available at  [TNX

EX BUREAU ---> Nikolaj Bubnov, EX8MF (ex UM8MFO) reports the new address  for

QSL A35MQ ---> Please note that  cards for the recent A35MQ operation  should
be sent to  DL8NBE. Do not  send them  to either  IV3DHD or  IV3UHL (who  was
active with that call back in 1993).

QSL EA5DWS/P ---> He was active  from Tabarca Island  (EU-093, DIE E-006)  on
20-23 April. Cards should go via EA5DWS either direct (Salva Moreno, P.O. Box
134, 03820 Cocentaina, Alicante, Spain) or through the bureau. [TNX EA5DWS]

Switzerland or through the Swiss bureau,  as he lives in Thailand. Send  your
cards direct  to  Kurt Brauer,  P.O.  Box 75,  Phanom-Sarakham,  Chachoengsao
24120, Thailand or through the HS bureau.

QSL EU-066 --->  Cards for RZ1OA/p  and UA1OLM/p (EU-066)  should be sent  to

Arkhangelsk 163040, Russia. [TNX RZ1OA]
