year's event  is  still  for  stations  located  in  the  Americas.  Further
information,  including  last  year's  event  results,  can   be   found  at

QSLLING TO UZBEKISTAN ---> Mike, UK8OM urges everyone not  to  try  and  use
greenstamps when QSLling direct  to  Uzbekistan,  as  they  are  stolen  "by
unscrupulous  people  at the post office" (IRCs are all right). Also, do not
send Self Addressed Envelopes, because only envelopes produced in Uzbekistan
can mailed from that country (self-addressed adhesive labels are all right).
