E-mail address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
You only have a few more days to work Filip, ON4TA, as 6O0F. He is expected to leave on August 15th. His activity is limited. Most of his operations is around 14240-14250 kHz usually between 1230-1600z. QSL via his home callsign, the bureau is preferred.
Steve, 9M6DXX, reports (edited), "Chris Lorek, G4HCL, has authorized me to inform everyone that he plans to be active from Sana, Yemen, once again as 7O/G4HCL from Monday, August 13th until early on Wednesday, August 15th. Chris has written permission and official authority to operate on all HF amateur bands under supervised conditions, but warns that it may or may not be possible to obtain the specific documentation that satisfies DXCC requirements. WFWL! This is NOT A DXpedition but a business trip, and operation will therefore only be when possible and is only likely to be for short periods at a time. Chris will be using 1kW to a professional biconical monopole communications antenna. Activity will be SSB only, and probably only on 20m (look between 14170 and 14260 kHz). QSL information for this operation is direct only to G4HCL, PO Box 400, Eastleigh SO53 4ZF, UK. If Chris is able to get on the air for extended periods, this should certainly liven up the bands a little as a prelude to our 3B7C operation! 73..."

QSL INFO AND NEWS
QSL ROUTES by Johannes, DK8JB: SA25QW via SK6QW SF89IB via SM6CLU SB250TT via SM6JSM SI89B via SM6CLUQSLS FOR 5X4A AND 5X4B. Tom, DL8AAM (5Z4GD, ex OP 5Z4FU/A, 5X/DL8AAM etc.), informs OPDX that a great part of the original logs were lost in the "civil war" in Northern Uganda. The QTH of 5X4A and 5X4B was in Kitgum/Gulu, in Northern Uganda, near the Sudanese border. During the time of their activity and to date, this region has suffered from a cruel civil war between the central government and the LRA (Lord's Resistance Army). Tom mentions that he has a great box of "unanswered QSLs". He hopes that maybe later he will be able to return to the sites, and possibly find and collect the "lost" logbooks.
GOLIST QSL MANAGER DATABASE HELP NEEDED. John, K1XN, from the GoList informs: "During my QSL Manager confirmation process, I have accum- alated a list of QSL Managers for which I could not find a published E-mail address, or the E-mail address that I found is not valid and bounces mail.
