The applications for new DXCC status of H40 (Temotu), FO (Marquesas) and FO (Australes) already arrived at the DXCC Desk and will be processed soon.

FO - AUSTRAL/MARQUESAS ISLANDS FO0MIZ made some 2800 QSOs from the Marquesas and 3523 from Austral Islands.

K6SLO intends to answer all incoming QSLs within 30 days.

H40 - TEMOTU Though the H40AA log is now available in the internet under: http://www.iglou.com/n4gn/h40aa/ it seems that only a few of the 67000 QSOs were saved correctly (20% ?). -- Jim smith just started mailing his H40AB QSLs, the H44AB cards will be processed later.

JT - MONGOLIA HA0HW, HA1AG, HA4GDO, HA4XG, HA6NL and HA7VK were announced to be on the air from Ulaanbaatar with 2 or 3 stations simultaneously signing JU1HA in CW/SSB/RTTY.
