He plans also to make some trips to Henderson Isl (OC-056) and Ducie Isl. (OC-182) if it can be done with a reasonable effort.

VK0 - MACQUARIE ISLAND Alan is QRV as VK0MM until the end of the year. His homepage writes (http://www.geocities.com/vk0ld/1.html) the actual operating times and QSL information: NO QSL manager! QSLs will be mailed only after his return to Australia. Do NOT send QSLs NOW, any mail arriving too early will be destroyed unopened. "Security" QSOs and e-mails asking "Am I in the log?" will lead to the deletion of all QSOs!
3DA - SWAZILAND Andre, ZS6WPX, is active in SSB on 10/15/20/40m signing 3DA0WPX from Jan 11-15. QSL direct only via ZS6WPX.
9Q - ZAIRE The "Secretariat General de PTT Kinshasa" announced that new 9Q licenses will be issued this month.
XT - BURKINA FASO XT2DR is active until Jan 24. QSL via F6BZH.
4U/un - UNITED NATIONS HEADQUARTERS IN NEW YORK Contrary to what was printed in DXNL 1179 Fritz, DL4TT, was not QRV from 4U1ITU in Geneve but commenced his CW operation from 4U1UN in New York on Jan 7.
TI - COSTA RICA Carlos, TI5KD, and some more operators intend to operate as TE8CH from Chira Island (NA-116) in SSB/CW on 80-6m from Jan 19-23.
8Q - MALDIVES Vadim, UA9CLB, hits the airwaves from Meeru Island (AS-013) until Jan 14. He is working as 8Q7DV in CW/SSB/RTTY/PSK31. QSL via UA9CI.
9N - NEPAL Charlie, K4VUD, left Nepal on Jan 6 after logging many thousand QSOs as XW1UD, HS0ZCW and 9N7UD. The QSL cards will be ordered this week. Charlie had the impression that the local noise level increased very much. 160/80m operation is possible only far outside of Kathmandu with good antennae and a big amplifier. In Laos (XW) he had a very good because remote location. In Thailand he operated as HS0ZCW from the very well equipped station of HS1CHB running a TH-7 and TH-6 on a 15 storey house. The local OMs were supported with new radios, antennae and accessories from several donors. In the future they want to collect all donated equipment at the clubstation 9N1MM which will possibly get the new callsign 9N0MM. Regular activities can now be expected from 9N1AA, 9N1HA, 9N1AC and 9N2AA. 9N1ACs incoming mail was opened several times so he had to put Carl, N4AA, in charge of his QSL manager.
