(Guadeloupe, QSL via F1ULQ) and ZL6FTDMC (New Zealand, QSL via F1ULQ). The
logs will be uploaded to LoTW and eQSL. See https://www.ft8dmc.eu for
information on the FTDMC Anniversary Award.

IOTA: RESTRUCTURING OF AS-117 & AS-206 ---> "Islands previously listed as
qualifying for AS-117 that now fall within the co-ordinates box of the new
group AS-206 (Honshu's Coastal Islands East) have been transferred and are
listed appropriately both in the application database scroll-down list and
in the IOTA Directory online" Roger Balister, G3KMA (IOTA General Manager)
posted to https://iota-world.org/ on 30 July.
"Following several activations from AS-206 in the last few weeks with most
already accepted for credit, the group number is now confirmed.
Record-holders with credits for AS-117 that commence with prefixes JA0, 1, 2
and 7, will have their credits reviewed for transfer to AS-206.
All chasers who logged into the IOTA system at least once during the last
two years will be automatically informed by a credit re-allocation. This
will alert them to the need to find a replacement card or QSO match for
AS-117 with a prefix JA3, 4 or 9 to regain credit.
Other record-holders for whom Management no longer retains an email address
will have any necessary transfer made automatically.
The intention is to transfer all credits to the correct IOTA group within a
few weeks. As this is quite a big job, patience is requested"

MIDWAY ISLAND 2020 ---> Ron KH6DV has announced that KH6VV/KH4 "
will activate Midway Atoll the last two weeks in February 2020". Operators
interested in joining the DXpedition are invited to contact him by email. See
https://dx-world.net/kh6vv-kh4-midway-island-2020/ for few preliminary details
(and comments).

VP8/VP8DXU ---> The project planning for the 2020 South Orkney Islands
DXpedition [425DXN 1469] continues on schedule. During the weekend of 12
July seven team members and three volunteers met in Placerville, California
to prepare the tents for use on Signy Island, 60m FT8 has been added to the
operating plan, and the fundraising campaign continues: "team members made
their 2nd payment to the project, and our 2nd payment to the 'Braveheart'
was processed", the VP8/VP8DXU team reported on 27 July. "As of this
writing, 33 clubs/foundations and 273 individuals have shown their support
for the project. While we're making progress, we have a long way to go to
reach the goal of 50% team member funding of the estimated project cost of
USD 325,000. Please keep in mind, serious DXpeditions, especially those in
the Southern Ocean, must pay the bills before leaving home, we are no
exception. If you need South Orkneys for an ATNO, or plan to work us, we
would appreciate your help". Please visit https://sorkney.com/ and consider

4U1UN ---> "We're one step closer to being back on the air", James Sarte,
K2QI (President of the United Nations ARC
, http://www.4u1un.net ) posted to
Facebook on 16 August 2018. "As some may know, Dmitri Zhikharev RA9USU along with
Adrian Ciuperca KO8SCA have been working with me behind the scenes to get
the station operational again. Through the generous donations of Dima and
his associates (notably Ed Kritsky NT2X), we were able to get a rack mounted
K3, Acom 2000 linear amplifier, and associated network-enabled control
hardware. We were also granted another K3 to act as a remote head from SK
Tony N2UN via his widow, and delivered to us by Andrew Bodony K2LE. Finally,
Adrian has been doing a lot of behind-the-scenes networking and legwork with
his counterparts to help get things done from within the United Nations.
Yesterday represents an additional milestone for the club as Adrian (who did
most of the work) and I, finally erected a brand new SteppIR BigIR vertical
antenna on the Secretariat's roof. All that remains is to connect and lay
the ground radials, fine-tune the rack mounted devices, and setup and
configure the remote K3. Once done and after almost a decade off-air, we can
finally call CQ 20 de 4U1UN".
"With regards to remote", K2QI explained in late July to DX World (see
https://dx-world.net/whats-the-issue-with-4u1un/), "the operators will still
be inside the UN proper. Just now, everything will be done by IP where the
control heads are located on the first floor and the transceiver on the 41st
floor to minimize coax length to the antennas. There will be no true remote
operations of the station from outside the compound as dictated by current
UN network security protocols".

FT8 OPERATING GUIDE --->
Gary, ZL2IFB has updated his "FT8 Operating Guide"
(Version 1.20), a collection of "tips, pragmatic suggestions aimed at making
FT8 easier and more effective to use on the HF bands": http://www.g4ifb.com/ NCDXF --- >
The Northern California DX Foundation has announced the addition
of two new members to the Board: Rich Seifert (KE1B) and Lee Finkel (KY7M).
Both "have strong technical and legal backgrounds, and years of DXpedition
experience, which will serve them well as members of the NCDXF leadership
team". The Board of Directors now includes K6MM (President), AA7A (Vice
President), W0GJ (Secretary), N1DG (Treasurer), AA7JV, K6GFJ, K6TD, K9CT,
KE1B, KY7M and ND2T (Directors). The primary purpose of NCDXF is to help
fund well-organized DXpeditions to rare, difficult and expensive entities.
See http://www.ncdxf.org for complete information.RI1FJ ---> Evgenij, UA4RX ended
his 12-month assignment at the Ernst Krenkel
Observatory on Heiss Island (EU-019), Franz Josef Land on 10 August. The
RI1FJ station has been dismantled, and regrettably the 2018-19 team does not
include amateur radio operators. QSL via LoTW, Club Log's OQRS, or direct to
RW2F (ex UA2FM): Victor N. Loginov, P.O. Box 73, Kaliningrad, 236022,
Russia.

DXCC NEWS ---> 5A1AL (Libya, all operations) has been approved for DXCC
credit. If you have had this rejected in a prior application, you can send
a note to dxccadmin[@]arrl.org to be placed on the list for an update to

OPERATING STANDARDS BOOKLET ---> Over the last eight years, the booklet
"Ethics and Operating Procedures for the Radio Amateur"
( www.hamradio-operating-ethics.org ) has become a respected work describing
the best standards of operating on the amateur bands. Translated into most
major languages, the booklet by John Devoldere, ON4UN and Mark
Demeuleneere, ON4WW, is a valuable reference work for all radio amateurs.
Mark and John recently contacted IARU, explaining that they felt it
appropriate for IARU to become the custodian of the booklet into the
future. The IARU Administrative Council accepted this offer with gratitude,
and on 5 May Mark and John met Don Beattie, G3BJ, President IARU Region 1,
in Brussels to officially hand over the document. IARU will now carry
forward the work in future years to ensure its continuing relevance and
currency. [TNX IARU Region 1]
