CWOPS AWARD ---> The "CWops Award for Advancing the Art of CW" (details on
www.cwops.org/awards.html) recognizes individuals, groups and organizations
that have made the greatest contribution(s) toward advancing the art or
practice of radio communications by Morse code. The 2016 recipients are:
- CWops President Rob Brownstein (K6RB) "for creating, organizing, marketing
and actively participating in the operation of CW Academy, which trains
about 360 people in Morse code every year";
- Carlo Consoli (IK0YGJ), whose book "Zen and the Art of Radiotelegraphy",
available in four languages, "is an encyclopedia about CW, and especially
about learning it. The most valuable section explains how to teach oneself
to copy CW at speeds exceeding 50 WPM";
- Chuck Adams (K7QO), "for writing and publishing a CW training course
manual and CDs, which he distributes at no cost to students. He also
teaches CW classes". [TNX ARRL]

GTC CW CUP ---> The 6th Greek Telegraphy Club CW Cup will be held on 1-2
October (6-12 UTC on Saturday and 12-18 UTC on Sunday) on 80, 40, 20, 15 and
10 metres. See http://www.raag.org/displayITM1.asp?ITMID=1029&LANG=EN for
complete information. [TNX SV5DKL]

INDEXA NEWSLETTER ---> A Summer 2016 Special Issue of the International DX
Association's Newsletter (INDEXA) is now available for download:
www.indexa.org/newsletters.html. This issue contains the story of VK0EK
(Heard Island 2016: New Technology Changes the DXpedition). [TNX K8YC]

IOTA: FRIENDS OF IOTA UPDATE ---> "The Friends of IOTA appeal has now raised
GBP 13,232.49, a sum which covers more than half of our initial target of
GBP 25,000 for the paperless QSLing project", Roger Balister (G3KMA)
reported on the IOTA website on 21 September. "Additionally we have
transferred into Friends of IOTA, with the agreement of the trustees, a sum
of GBP 2,661.43 previously in the W4BAA Trust Fund - this was set up by
bequest for the betterment of the IOTA Programme. The sum total of GBP
15,893.92 is available both for IT and also, where restricted, promotional
expenditure. We now have 116 contributors in 31 countries and we are
immensely grateful to them for their generosity and support at this time of
need". Nonetheless, "we are still significantly short of our target on the
IT paperless QSLing project", and therefore donations are still gratefully
received through PayPal to the email address islandsontheair[@]outlook.com
(in the comments field add "Friends of IOTA" and your callsign to identify
you). See www.rsgbiota.org for the complete report.

LOTW ---> As of 14 UTC on 6 January 2017, ARRL Logbook of The World (LoTW)
no longer will accept contacts that have been digitally signed by versions
of TQSL earlier than version 2.0. Users of earlier versions are encouraged
to upgrade as soon as possible. The current versions of TQSL for Windows, OS
X and Linux can be found at https://lotw.arrl.org/lotw-help/installation/.
