CYPRUS QSL MATTERS ---> Baz, 5B4AHO has retired as QSL manager for the Pafos
Radio Club, after 10 years of stirling work. The new QSL manager is Norman,
5B4AIE. QSLs for the following calls should be sent via 5B4AIE: 5B4PRC,
C4EURO, C4EU, P3EU, P3R and 5B70VE.
QSLing 5B stations in general: a reminder that many Cyprus stations have a
QSL Manager who is not resident in Cyprus. It is therefore pointless to send
QSLs for these stations to the Cyprus QSL Bureau - the cards will almost
certainly not be delivered to their intended recipient. A full list of these
stations can be found here: http://bit.ly/1QdZQht [TNX 5B4AHJ, CARS QSL
Bureau Manager]

HV ON CLUB LOG ---> The logs for HV0A (QSOs after 2 February 2008), HV4NAC
(QSOs after 26 January 2008), HV50VR and HV6SP are now available on Club
Log. They will be updated soon after each activation. The logs are regularly
uploaded to LoTW. [TNX IK0PRG]

IOTA SURVEY --- > If you need IOTA groups OC-196, OC-198 and/or OC-228,
there is a quick survey to help Craig, VK5CE plan operations there in 2017:
https://freeonlinesurveys.com/s/hWzrlEwS.

YOTA MONTH ---> The Youngsters On The Air group will be active again during
the entire month of December. The idea for this event is to show the amateur
radio hobby to youth and to encourage youngsters to be active on the ham
radio waves. Participating stations include 3V8YOTA, 4O1YOTA, 4O2YOTA,
7X2YOTA, 9A0YOTA, 9A16YOTA, A2YOTA, A60YOTA, DA0YOTA, E71YOTA, ES9YOTA,
ET3AA/YOTA, GB16YOTA, HA6YOTA, HB9YOTA, II2YOTA, II5YOTA, J62YOTA, LX4YOTA,
LY5YOTA, OD5RI/YOTA, OE16YOTA, OH2YOTA, OM9YOTA, ON4YOTA, PA6YOTA, PD6YOTA,
SH9YOTA, TM0YOTA, YO0YOTA, YT16YOTA and ZS9YOTA. QSLs via Club Log's OQRS.
See www.ham-yota.com/december-yota-month/ for information on the event and
the award.
