H40 - TEMOTU ISLANDS The online logcheck of H40AA and H44AA is now working fine under: http://www.iglou.com/n4gn/h40aa/. Some DXers mixed up the different logs, so I regret the comment in DXNL 1095.
V6 - MICRONESIA N6VV, NG7S and W7DR will be active from Kolkonia, Pohnpei, signing V63VV during the WPX CW Contest. Other calls are not known yet. Afterwards they will sign V63VV/p etc. from Mokil Isl. till June 7. QSLs via homecalls.
