CN2GA Andy, DL2GGA, returned home after making 3800 QSOs plus 700 contest QSOs (WAG) during 35 hours of activity at the clubstation CN8MC. On weekdays Andy could use the station from 0900-1200 and 1500-1800 Z. He confirms that no licenses are issued to foreigners. Reason for that were some operators who stayed near the border to S0 which was not allowed by the Moroccan officials. Andy had the restriction to work only from the clubstation CN8MC. Anybody who intends to apply for a licence after the situation has calmed down should do that at the ARRAM (CN8MC) and NOT at the telecom in Morocco.
KH6 Rich, K1CC (WH6R), KH6IO, KH6HH and KH6XT plan to participate in the WWDX CW in the multi/multi category. They will look especially for Europe on the lowbands.
IOTA The RSGB published an IOTA yearbook which shall be published every year in the future. Besides of the actual IOTA directory there are 40 more pages full of information about the IOTA program. Both brochures are only available together.
ZL8RI: During these days the last 100 direct cards of the 1996 DXpedition shall be put into the mail. All other cards are underway via the bureau. Everybody who misses his direct QSLs in two weeks shall try again via the known address.
