FT5Z - AMSTERDAM ISLAND Some critics didn't recognize that the FT5ZH operation is made by two operators only who are disturbed by heavy storms when erecting new antennas. Their 30m antenna became ready on Dec 11. They will start their RTTY operation on Dec 15. Since they are only guests on the French base they have to pay attention on the local schedule: "If you don't eat at 1400Z you don't get anything." Unfortunately they didn't get a permission for Crozet or Kerguelen.

Please send any donations to Randy, WX5L, or Karl, PS7KM. This may be the last possibility for a DXpedition to PY0S since the rocks shall become a prohibited military area.

On the way back home from the VK9LX DXpedition Mary Lou Brown, NM7M, suffered a heart strike and sadly passed away on San Francisco airport.
LISTENING is the most important rule of DXing. If you listen to a pile up of Europeans you will hear how it is DONE WRONG! If the DX station calls a specific part of a particular call ALL OTHERS must listen first even if they consider themselves being louder, more important or more interesting. This is absolute independent from the TX/RX frequencies of the DX station! These days several DX stations made QRT because their instructions were ignored by the European callers all the time. Please feel free to share this "most important rule of DXing" with the newbies or DXers in your area.
