A BUSY MONTH ---> March was quite a busy month for DXers! Here are some
consolidated statistics for a few DXpeditions that generated much interest
on our bands:
Call Date CW SSB DIGI Total Uniques
--------------------------------------------------------------
9G5X 08-21 March 21112 7015 1245 29372 11478
5U5R 09-20 March 39734 26777 8816 75327 22486
TU7C 10-19 March 18236 21033 13126 52395 18133
9N7EI 10-22 March 17420 10924 2070 30414 12030
S21ZED 14-19 March 17553 3619 770 21942 8484
S21ZEE 19-26 March 20862 5142 3946 29950 11333
As for OQRS, Clublog is used by S21ZED, S21ZEE and TU7C; 9G5X (QSL cards are
being distributed) and 9N7EI (QSL cards are being printed) go via M0OXO's
system (); 5U5R has its own OQRS for
direct cards on .

A35JP/P ---> Masa, JA0RQV logged about 1,600 QSOs during his recent A35JP/p
operation from Niuafo'ou Island (OC-123). Activity started on 23 March at
07.01 UTC, and ended on 28 March at 10.19 UTC. A few pictures can be found
at . He had to handwrite the log, and in the next
coming days he will convert the QSOs to an electronic format and then upload
them to Club Log and LoTW "as soon as possible". He is aware that "there are
still many stations who need OC-123", and plans to return there in 2019.

CLUB LOG'S MOST WANTED LIST ---> The latest Most Wanted List, generated on
31 March, is available at . The
information is derived from QSOs uploaded to Club Log (currently 419
million log entries available for analysis) and, to improve quality, only
QSOs that have QSLs confirmed are considered to be worked. The most wanted
charts are rebuilt once per month, on average.

POSTAL RATES (UK) ---> Postal rates in the United Kingdom changed on 27
March. The new rates for standard airmail letters are as follows:
Europe Rest of the world
up to 10 grams GBP 1.17 GBP 1.17
up to 20 grams GBP 1.17 GBP 1.40
"International Economy" (only for destinations outside Europe) is GBP 1.02
up to 20 grams. A Price Finder on-line tool is provided by Royal Mail
().

T31: OPERATORS WANTED ---> John Mitton, KK7L is "looking for a few skilled
HF operators to join me on a cruise to Central Kiribati (T31) for a full
week on Nikumaroro Island (OC-043). The cruise departs Nadi, Fiji on June
24 - returning to Nadi on July 12th with one-day stops at Rotuma and Futuna
on the way out and back. The ship will be at Nikumaroro for eight days, so
with setup and takedown we will be six, maybe seven days QRV at T31. We
would sail on the "Reef Endeavour" from Fiji along with the TIGHAR
organization which has been searching to learn where Amelia Earhart might
have met her demise". See
for more information.

WRTC 2018 ---> The Organizing Committee of the World Radiosport Team
Championship (WRTC) 2018 in Germany has opened the application process for
qualified individuals who would like to serve as referees. The primary
responsibility of the referee is to monitor the competitors to confirm that
they are following all of the WRTC rules. The selection process is being led
by Ulf Ehrlich (DL5AXX), who says that "with the rules allowing both
operators to transmit simultaneously, the role for each referee is really
challenging". The deadline for submitting applications is 31 October 2017.
See for
the application form.
