3Y_bou - Chuck, 3Y0C is struggling against storms blowing down his  antennas.
          Due to  an oil  leak, the  generator can  be  operated only  for  45
          minutes a day and this situation  will not change  for the next  two
          months. Chuck is aware of the need for Bouvet and is trying to  work
          as many stations as possible during the limited spare time he has  -
          from time to time he works  just a handful of stations before  going
          QRT due to  his other duties.  QSL via WA4FFW  (Mark McIntyre,  2903
          Maple Ave., Burlington, NC 27215, USA), but note that logs will  not
          be available before Chuck returns home. Latest news from Bouvet  can
          be found at
C6     - Lee, N7NU  will  operate  (mostly CW  on  10-80  metres)  as  either
          N7NU/C6A and/or C6AJX from Abaco Island  (NA-080), Bahamas on  18-26
          January. QSL via N7NU. [TNX The Daily DX]
D6     - While waiting for D68C, do not forget to work Josep, EA3BT/D68BT and
          Nuria, EA3WL/D68WL, who will  be active with  two stations from  the
          Comoros (AF-007) from 13 to 28 January [425DXN 499]. Look for  Josep
          and Nuria on  SSB (28495,  24945, 21295/21195,  18145, 14195,  7052,
          3795 and 50110 kHz), CW (14025  and 10103 kHz)  and RTTY (21083  and
          14083   kHz).   The   pilots   will   be   Pere   Galimany,   EA3AJI
          (, for Europe  and Central/South America);  Bill
          Avery, K6GNX (, for North America); Yuki Deguchi,
          JI6KVR  (,  for  Japan,  Asia  and  Oceania).
          Up-to-date information, pictures, daily logs etc. will be  available
          at QSL for both via EA3BT either direct or
          through the bureau. [TNX EA3BT]
FO     - Kunio, JA8VE will  be active (on  10-20 metres SSB)  as FO0KUN  from
          Bora Bora  (OC-067),  French Polynesia  on  16-18 January  and  from
          Tahiti (OC-046), French  Polynesia on 19-21  January. QSL via  JA8VE
          either  direct  (Kunio   Saito,  2-26-5-554  Nishitsuruma,   Yamato,
          242-0005, Japan) or through the JARL bureau. [TNX The Daily DX]
PY     - Simone/IV3NVN,  Ana Claudia/PP5TO,   Barboza/PP5VB  and  PP5UU  were
          expected  to operate  from  Santana de Fora (SA-088)  but  rough sea
          prevented them from landing.  A new attempt will  take place as soon
          as the  weather improves  from either  Santana de Fora (as ZX5T)  or
          Araras, one of the other islands qualifying for SA-088. Plans are to
          be active  for a couple of days on  10, 15 and 20 metres SSB and CW.
          ZX5T has been issued for Gipoia (SA-029)  and  Santana de Fora only,
          so if they operate from  Araras they will sign PP5TO.  QSL ZX5T  and
          PP5TO via IV3NVN. [TNX IN3NVN]
PY     - Look for ZV3F and ZW3F to operate  (SSB and CW) from Fort Dom  Pedro
          II (DFH RS-03) on 20-21 January. QSL via PY3UR. [TNX PP5SZ]
UU     - Operators from club station  UU4JXM will be  active from Kosa  Tuzla
          Island (EU-180) in late January, including en entry in the CQ WW 160
          CW DX Contest (27-28 Janury) as  UU7J/P. Andy, UU6JM will arrive  on
          23 January and will operate as UU4JXM/P on 20-160 metres CW and  SSB
          mostly during  his evenings.  On 26  January he  will be  joined  by
          UU0JM, UU4JMG, UU8JK and possibly maybe  UU2JQ. QSL via UU8JK  (Alex
          Kotovskij, P.O. Box 57, 98312 Kerch, Ukraine). [TNX UU6JM]
V3     - Klaus, DJ4SO will be active as V31SN from Belize between 17  January
          and 12 February. He will operate  on all HF bands (with an  emphasis
          on 6, 12, 17 and 30  metres) CW, RTTY and PSK31  with some SSB.  QSL
          via DJ4SO either direct or through the bureau. [TNX The Daily DX]

30 METRES  --->  Jose  Jacob,  VU2JOS  reports  that  the  special  temporary
authorization for VU amateurs to operate on 30 metres expires at 18.30 UTC on
31 January 2001.

D68C ---> A series of 15  trophies will be  available to stations  throughout
the world, to UK stations and  to UK clubs for  working the forthcoming  D68C
DXpedition to the  Comoros [425DXN 501].  For full details  please visit  the
DXpedition's most comprehensive  web site at
The DXpedition is confirmed to take place from about 8 to 18 February.

OEVSV --->  Karl Bugner,  OE1BKW (OeVSV  QSL  Service Manager)  reports  that
effective 1 January 2001 the Austrian Amateur Radio Society (OeVSV) moved  to
the following new  address: OeVSV -  Dachverband, Eisvogelgasse  4/1, A  1060
Wien, Austria.

QSL A61AJ ---> Bernie, W3UR reports he is currently waiting for Ali, A61AJ to
order new photo QSL cards. All direct (3098) and bureau (13109) requests have
been entered into the computer logs  and when Bernie  receive the cards  from
the printer they will be quickly sent out. Please be patient and do not  send
second requests.

QSL 4W/K7BV & 4W/N6FF ---> Steve,  KU9C reports that the  QSL cards for  this
operation are  expected to  be in  his hands  by 1  February and  will  begin
hitting the mail box immediately. He expects to have most of them out  within
a few weeks, and all received by the end of February should be in the mail by
1 March. If  you did not  send enough  return postage  due to  the recent  US
postage rate change,  do not worry,  as Steve himself  will put the  required
stamps on the envelope.

QSL 5N6ZHM ---> Paul, W5TUD reports he has received some 200 bureau cards for
contacts made in 1999, but he has not got  any log from 5N6ZHM for years  and
cannot get in touch with him.

QSL FO0WEG & FO0POM ---> The  QSL cards for the October/November 2000  FO0WEG
(Australs) and  FO0POM  (Marquesas) activities  are  being printed.  The  QSL
manager for both is SP9FIH (Janusz Wegrzyn, Box 480, 44-100 Gliwice, Poland).

QSL VP8CQR ---> Cards and logs  for the 1996-1998  VP8CQR operations are  now
available and  QSLs  should  be  sent  (direct  only)  to  SP2JKC  (Krzysztof
Maciejkiewicz, P.O. Box 30, 80-958 Gdansk 50, Poland). [TNX The Daily DX]

QSL ZL2VS ---> The following comes from Dusty, ZL2VS: "As from 1 January 2001
I am no  longer a member  of NZART;  I will  still receive  bureau cards  but
outgoing will  be quite  slow as  I  will clear  my  cards every  3-6  months
depending on the volume. I will answer direct cards as usual by return  post,
1 IRC or 1 Green stamp  is still sufficient for return  postage from here.  I
also still have logs/cards from my ZM7VS Chatham Islands operation in January
1990 if anyone still needs one."

VP8SSI ---> "I  have held  this callsign  since it  was issued  to The  South
Sandwich Island DX Group in 1988",  Tony, WA4JQS reports. This call has  been
aired recently and Tony has already  received QSLs for this operation,  which
is most likely a pirate.

WF5E DX QSL SERVICE ---> "It has been brought to my attention that 3B9R  [see
425DXN 504] has a new manager (K7ZD) and there is no problem with him to  use
my service", Les, WF5E reports. For  further information on  the WF5E DX  QSL
Service please visit
