IOTA NEWS
AS-127. (Update/Rare IOTA) Last week we reported that operators Tutul/ S21RC, Manjurul/S21AM, Sohel/S21S and Aminul/S21D were preparing a DXpedition in February 2010 to St. Martin's Island located in Chittagong Region Group. The operation will take place between February 21-25th. The group has requested the callsign S21DX. St. Martin is the only coral island in Bangladesh (S2), and there is also a lighthouse on the Island (WLOTA #2351) very near their camp site. There is no electricity and no motor vehicles on the Island which makes the air interference free. They team plans to have two stations on the air with a few antennas like last time. To power the stations they will use 1KVA generator and 2x 115AH batteries. QSL Manager will be EB7DX. The group is looking for sponsors/funds. A Web page is now up and running at:

http://iota.s2dx.org

NA-191. Operators Gunter/TI7WGI, Andreas/DH8WR, Rene/DL2JRM and Jens/ DL3ALF will be active as TI7XX from San Jose Island between December 30th and January 5th (2010).

IRC REMINDER!
Alan, VK4AAR, and many other QSL Managers would like to remind that in about 5 weeks time, the IRCs which many have been using for the last few years will no longer be valid at the post office. The "31st December 2009" is the deadline for the current style ... but best to stop using them by end of November to allow transit time. The new one has the expiry date of "31st December 2013"... just above the "UPU" logo at your right-hand side. PLEASE START USING THEM IMMEDIATELY FOR SAFETY.
