XU7MDC - Cambodia 2016

K800 Final Team

Lee Hai from Cambodia!

As a wonderful and unforgettable adventure, from the coast of Cambodia, the final act is upon us. Today, in early afternoon , local time ,the team are gathering to begin the take down of the antennas. At this moment as we are writing this post, we decided to leave working only a vertical antennas for RTTY on 30 meters and 20 meters, the spiderbeam, five bands,and the 40 meters vertical, for the only SSB station remaining, and the Quad and vertical 80 meters for the guys of CW.

In any case all the antennas will be put down tomorrow at the local Sunrise. We’ll leave our QTH in Ream- Shinahoukville District in late morning to reach ,after a long way by bus the Phon Phen Airport and starting our come back route to Milano where we’ll arrive at 7 AM of Tuesday. We reached a target of 35.000 Qsos , with proudly a number of 6500 Qsos on RTTY mode. Thanks one again to the dxers of all over the world for calling and calling us in any band/mode. And thanks for your incredible support!!! The great big international family of the Mediterraneo Dx Club will come back on air with our unvualable members of the team .

So thinking about our next one, as well we are thinking about the next one!

Lee Hai from Cambodia!!!

More bureau wasteage

K800 20161112 151659A large amount of Qsl Cards received via the RSGB Bureau have been sorted ready for processing.

The photo's show approx 3000 bureau cards that have been sorted into Callsign order ready to be processed through the logs.

The most disturbing thing is that ALL the Qsl Cards you seen in the image to the left have all been received via the Bureau but QRZ.Com clearly states ''Your QSL Cards are NOT required - Please DO NOT send them via the Bureau''.

This cards have taken 8 hours to sort by me alone after already being sorted by the RSGB Bureau Staff. They have to be packaged, mailed and postage paid for before they arrive at my door.

This is simply 'Indiscriminate QSL'ing' by YOU, the user.

 

TL8AO reminder

CARTL8AO is primarily a single op DXpedition to take place from Bangui, Central African Republic (C.A.R) between 10th & 22nd November 2016. QSO target is 15,000. I go to Bangui to do the DXpedition and achieve as many contacts as possible. But we all realize that TL is a very poor country – so why not try some fundraising for the people of C.A.R?

My budget is 7000 USD. I am not seeking donations to cover my own expenses, but try to do some fundraising for Doctors Without Borders in C.A.R who have been there since 1997 providing humanitarian aid to local residents.

My goal is to generate as much donations as possible where 100% of donations received will be given to DWOB. It is important to state that this DXpedition is not in co-operation with DWOB – they are solely the recipient of the donation.

They have acknowledged this fundraising, and use of their logo. Please check http://activityreport2015.msf.org/country/central-african-republic/

  • 100% of  donations received by individuals or clubs/organizations will go directly to Doctors Without Borders in C.A.R
  • 100% of net income through OQRS and direct QSL will go to Doctors without border in C.A.R

ALL donations are voluntary – there is no expectation that you donate just because you made a QSO. LoTW will be uploaded on the same day I return to Norway no matter!

M0OXO is the QSL manager and will handle all QSLing, OQRS, direct and buro. Thanks!

INDEXA have already decided to contribute to this fundraiser, we all know they established a humanitarian fund founded by Zorro JH1AJT in 2015. I sincerely hope other clubs/organizations and individual want to contribute as well

Friends Of IOTA - October Update

friends of iotaPosted on the IOTA Website from Roger G3KMA;

The appeal has now reached GBP £17,360 on its way to our initial target of GBP £25,000 needed to bring to fruition the paperless QSLing project – see previous IOTA News items. We have to thank 182 contributors in 36 countries for their generosity. It is just a matter now of one more push to reach the target. We reported last month that enhancements to the existing IT in July have seen two thirds of new applicants using the Club Log paperless QSLing option for all or most credits claimed and well over half of all submissions are using it to some degree. Overall some 36% of all credits claimed since early July are QSO matches and the team say that over 30,000 QSO matches are pending submission. This continues to make huge savings for applicants which will grow rapidly as we expand the list of activations in the paperless QSLing pool and bring online the complete IOTA rewrite late next Spring.

We invite IOTA enthusiasts wherever located to join our Happy Band of Friends of IOTA. You can make a payment through PayPal to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. but make sure to add in the comments field "Friends of IOTA" and your callsign to identify you.

The complete update can be found here, and includes the complete list of those who have reached the various levels of support.
