In this movie, watch giant clouds of solar material hurled out into space, the dance of giant loops hovering in the corona, and huge sunspots growing and shrinking on the Sun's surface.

I have just added several new Logs to the M0OXO OQRS. These Logs are for the Callsigns;
3B8HA AF-049, 3B8MU AF-049, G0CKV, M5E, SM5CKV EU-177, ZD8M AF-003 & 3B9HA AF-017.
From 3B9HA Qrz.Com page ;
''G0CKV will again be QRV from Rodrigues as 3B9HA November 24 - December 12, 2016 in particular during the CQWW CW Contest but also focusing on the low bands outside the contest.
Please DO NOT send your cards via the bureau. There was a time when I loved to receive all those cards but there is now not enough time left in my life to collect them. Please use OQRS to request bureau cards. Apologies for delays in responding to QSL requests. As from October 2016 Charles has kindly offered to help me and the backlog will soon be sorted.''

I heard from Leo DW1OXL yesterday. Leo has been back in the Philippines now for the last couple of years due to work.
More interesting is that he has his other licence renewed YC9MLL and he says he will be returning to Flores Island OC-151 for a period sometime in 2017 although at this stage no dates have been fixed.
I am not sure how many of the keen IOTA chasers still need OC-151 but I am sure
that some of you will.
OC-151 is on the Most Wanted list claimed by only 27.3% of chasers.

The new M0OXO OQRS system provided by the PDXG is almost ready. I have loaded around 340 Logs onto the system and i expect to go 'live' sometime on Sunday 11th September.
The links to the OQRS which are on both QRZ.com and my website are exactly the same as for the old OQRS.
Whilst I don't anticipate any problems with the changeover, please drop me an email if you do experience any issues of concern.
Thanks for your continued support

This will be a dual purpose activation for ILLW 2016 and also an activation of AF-064 IOTA.
Four operators (ZS1V Paul van Spronsen, ZS1VDV Jan van der Vyver, ZS1BM Bani van der Merwe & ZS1FX Bruce Robinson) will be on the Team and hope to give this rare IOTA and Lighthouse to the Ham Community but as always, they are Weather dependant.
Their website is being updates and can be found here http://zs9v.org.za/
