H40 - TEMOTU ISLAND Owing to the new DXCC rules (DXNL 1080) H44GP, H44GR, JA5DQH, N4GN, N7NG, OH0XX, OH1RY, OH2BC, OH2BE, OH2BH, OH2TA, W6OSP and 9V1YC came together to organize a major DXpedition. They plan to activate the Solomons from March 21 and in the WPX Contest. Starting on April 1 they intend to activate a possible new DXCC country signing H40AA from Temotu Island. In my opinion they still need an acceptance of Temotu at the UN or so. QSL for H40AA via bureau to OH2BN or direct to Jarmo J Jaakola, Kiilletie 5C30, Helsinki 00710, Finland.
