FO - FRENCH POLYNESIA Ron, N6VO, will work as FO5VO from Tahiti (OC-046) from February 12 until March 31. He wants to work mostly in CW and plans to take part in the ARRL DX CW Contest. QSL via homecall.
VK9X - CHRISTMAS ISLAND Besides VK9XY there is another station VK9XL which became QRV on February 6. The OM works a good CW style and asks for QSL via UA0ZDA, Box 21, Stavropol 355 002, Russia. We will see if this QSL route works...
ZL7 - CHATHAM ISLAND Antti, OH2BTB/OH5TB, became surprisingly QRV as ZL7BTB. He will be there until February 16. QSL via OH5TB.
PY0T - TRINDADE ISLAND Joao, PY1UP, is once again working from the Brazilian Naval Base of the island this time using the call PY0TI. He will stay for four months and is QRV on all bands. During his last activity as PY0TUP some problems occurred with the mailing of the QSLs caused by the publishing of several addresses and perhaps also by the Brazilian mail system.

FT5/W/X/Z The activity of FR5HR has been delayed by about one week. Rene planned to leave Reunion Island on a destroyer heading for FT on February 12. QSL via F5RRH.
HL9DC Del, W8KJP, returned to the United States on February 16. During the last two years he made more than 18.000 QSOs. QSL via N7RO.
SV/A The ARRL postponed the planned vote on the DXCC status of Mount Athos. The problem seems to be that they put SV/A on the DXCC Countries List without asking the holy community. Since then there have always been discussions concerning DXpeditions. Dominik, DL5EBE, tries to get some documents to keep Mount Athos as a separate DXCC country.
T31AF Karl, DL1VU, is not staying in the South Pacific in the moment. Since the call was active only for a short period of time on February 3 this seems to be the work of a pirate.
DP0GVN The new operator on the German Neumayer base in the Antarctic is Gustav, DL3OAY. He has not been heard on the bands yet.

BV9P: Steve, KU9C, will receive a huge pile of beautiful folding QSLs from the printer W4MPY in the near future. With the help of Ralph, K0PF, he tries to get all QSL card requests out by the end of February.
Save your money! Somebody received a QSL from FR5DX via the bureau! The strange thing is that he sent a SASE with 5 green stamps and some folders to FR5DX 17 months earlier and never received an answer. This is another confirmation for FR5DX's passion to collect dollars.
