PW0S ---> The final QSO count for the recent PW0S DXpedition to St. Peter and
St. Paul  Rocks was  around 7,800.  "The team  (PY7XC, PY7ZY,  PT7BZ,  PY0FF)
arrived at the Rocks on the morning of  February 9, finding the sea much  too
rough to even consider landing", PW0S  Coordinator Bill Smith, W9VA  reports.
"The seas subsided enough on the morning of February 12 to attempt a landing,
and they were able to get some  equipment ashore and operating by 2100Z.  The
bad weather  continued  with  high  winds,  lightning  and  rain,  frequently
interrupting operations.  Because  of the  three  day delay  in  landing,  by
February 16 the group was already way overdue getting home to their  families
and jobs. Supplies  were running out.  The weather was  such that they  could
safely get themselves and equipment off the Rocks, and the sensible  decision
was made to leave." The QSO count "is well below expectations", but they were
"7,800 contacts  that would  have not  been made  at all  without  incredible
courage and devotion to our  hobby. An effort  was made to  spend at least  a
little time on all bands and  modes, including RTTY". QSL  via KU9C. The  web
pages for PW0S are at (logs
should be available soon).

QSL D68C ---> Please note that the QSL manager is G3SWH (Phil Whitchurch,  21
Dickensons Grove, Congresbury, Bristol BS49 5HQ, England), not G3SXW.

QSL ZF2LM --->  Jay, AF2C  is the  QSL manager  for ZF2LM.  Bureau cards  are
welcome, direct requests  should include an  SASE or $1.00,  no IRCs  please.

QSL VIA IN3ZNR ---> Fabrizio  reports he will  start processing QSL  requests
for XW3ZNR and  XW3QBR (27 December  2000- 11 January  2001) after 15  March,
when he expects to receive the cards from the printer. The address for IN3ZNR
is Fabrizio Vedovelli, Via Gramsci 27, 38100 Trento - TN, Italy.

ST0P --->  DXCC  Manager Bill  Moore,  NC1L reports  that  ST0P (a  "lack  of
documentation" case) has been approved  and cards can  be submitted for  DXCC

TM1Z ---> Luc, F6OYU reports this is the first special TM call legally issued
by the licencing  authorithy in France  since "more than  one year". QSL  via
F6OYU (Luc Hedoin, 1020 route de Frans, 69400 Villeranche, France).
