V6 - MICRONESIA Tack, JE1SCJ, Kazu, JA0VSH, and his XYL Miyuki intend to become QRV from Pohnpei Island (OC-010) from December 28 till January 1, 1997. The announced calls were V63YT, V63KZ and V63MP and the planned activities will be on 160-10m (160m on 1823.5 kHz). They will use two stations, one 500 watts amplifier, a 3 ele beam and an inverted L antenna for 160m/80m/40m. QSL via homecalls.
7O - YEMEN Like announced in DX-NL 1024 here is more information about the 7O activity. Franz, DJ9ZB, and Zorro, JH1AJT, accepted a surprising invitation of the Yemeni government to demonstrate amateur radio in Aden. After their re-unification the Yemeni government is possibly thinking about a new introduction of amateur radio to their coun- try. All previous 1996 7O activities were without legal documents. Since they both did not know if and under which circumstances they could become QRV they did not announce this activity in advance. However they hit the airwaves in SSB only on most of the HF bands using the callsign 7O1A. Since their amplifier and some of the antenna parts were mislead they are still working with 100 watts until they picked up their equipment from the Sana airport. Until yet they have no licence for CW and RTTY. These modes shall be activated during another later activity. 7O1A will be on the air until December 21. QSL via JH1AJT.
P5 - NORTH KOREA JH1AHT and JH4RHF were introducing local operators to amateur radio during a Japanese-North Korean friendship mission lasting from October 22-26. It seems as if the North Koreans are interested to organize an amateur radio activity from P5 on their own.

Like previously announced the DX-MB/DX-NL 1025 is the last issue edited by me. It is also the last issue for 1996 since the DARC headquarter is closed from Christmas till next year. It is not yet fixed who the next editor will be since there are several applicants, hi...
At his point I'd like to thank all those who supported me while being the editor of the DX-MB/DX-NL. Special thanks are going to the editors of the other bulletins and to all the DXpeditioners for sending their information in advance. I would like to thank also Bob, DL7VOA, and Axel, DL6KVA (4K0CW), for their continous and reliable work for the DX-MB/DX-NL.
Last not least I wish all DX enthusiasts out there a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 1997 with many interesting DX!
Uwe, DL9GOA (editor)
NOTE: Although I don't know yet who the new editor of the DX-NL will be I will continue to translate the DX-Newsletter and to spread it via packet radio and internet in 1997. - Bob, DL7VOA
