1B/XW0LP ---> Simon, XW0LP has  "temporarily relocated"  his station  to the
territory of the Turkish Republic of North Cyprus (not valid for DXCC),  and
his  new callsign is  1B/XW0LP.  "The most important thing for me is  that I
love amateur radio  and  want to use my hobby  to help young students  learn
about radio communications.  I have  zero interest  in any discussions about
the politics and  history of my current residence".  More information can be

CROZET 2022-2023 ---> While a website is  under construction, the DXpedition
to the  Crozet Islands  is now  on  Twitter: https://twitter.com/crozet2022.
Thierry, F6CUK has been granted permission to be QRV from the #3 Most Wanted
DXCC Entity for three months  (mid-December 2022 to mid-March 2023)  [425DXN
"It seems important to indicate some of the conditions of  this permission",
Thierry says, as there are "three aspects that impose limitations":  climate
(the wind blows almost constantly at 70 kmh),  soil nature (it is impossible
to secure any mast in the ground),  and nature protection  (for bird protec-
tion, antennas, guy wires and anything that could be an obstacle are forbid-
den; also, it is impossible to dig, make anything in concrete,  all over the
"Our original request was for 4 squares on 40 and 20. This was refused.  Im-
possible to keep them up because of the wind  and the soil nature.  The only
possibility that the administration allowed was to have an  attachment point
to an existing building, and have wire antennas from there. NO beam! This is
clearly stated in  the permit  we received.  The whole team  is studying the
best solution for the best antenna possible,  taking into account these con-
Thierry also says that "CW and SSB will be the priority.  FT8 will be mostly
for low bands  if we can install an 80m dipole,  and for far away areas  (US
West Coast mainly)".
The Northern California DX Foundation (http://www.ncdxf.org/)  has announced
it is granting USD 20,000 to Thierry: "hopefully this experienced DXpedition
operator can exploit this rare opportunity to access Crozet Island,  put out
an  effective signal  on all the bands  and  log all of the needy  over  the
course of his extended stay".

JAPAN INTERNATIONAL DX SSB CONTEST ---> Object  of the contest  is  for ama-
teurs in Japan  to work as many station s in as many  DXCC Entities  and  CQ
Zones as possible on  160, 80, 40, 20, 15, and 10 metres,  while DX stations
work as many JA amateurs in as many Prefectures and JD1 islands as possible.
This year's event will be held on 13-14 November (07.00-13.00 UTC). Complete
information can be found on http://jidx.org/jidxrule-e.html.

QSL 6F1IHF ---> Pedro, EA5GL has picked up the QSLing for the  February 2005
6F1IHF operation  (Ixtapa Island, NA-183).  See https://www.qrz.com/db/EA5GL
for instructions.

QSL GALLERY ---> The large collection of QSL cards  on  Les  Nouvelles  DX's
website has been updated.  Sixteen different galleries include  19,408 cards
for the  ten Most  Wanted  DXCC  Entities  (2011-20), the  62  deleted  DXCC
Entities, obsolete prefixes,  stations  from  Maghreb  from  1945  to  1962,
Allied Forces stations in Germany (1945-80), special stations  commemorating
ITU and IARU, stations using the United Nations prefix (4U), Antarctic bases
and TAAF (Terres  Australes and Antarctiques Francaises), the various French
DXCC island Entities in the Pacific Ocean, the Indian Ocean and the Americas
(from 1945 to 1969), pre-1945  countries, French Departments and CONUS, plus
a gallery for cards not accepted  by DXCC. Your participation is encouraged:

W8S: SWAINS ISLAND 2023 ---> "This week the W8S team  had another conference
call about the planning for the upcoming DXpedition to KH8/s Swains Island",
Ronald PA3EWP wrote  on 4 November.  "Due to the  Covid-19 restrictions,  it
will remain impossible to travel to American Samoa in the coming months.
The limited number of flights, only 5 the first quarter of 2022, from Hawaii
to American Samoa with the  additional restriction to do a  Covid-19 test  5
days before departure  in Hawaii  makes travelling  extreme difficult.  Also
tourists have a lower priority to buy a ticket.
The risk is too great to travel to Swains in the spring of 2022.
Two members of our team are also part of the 3Y0J Bouvet team  scheduled for
November/December 2022.
The entire team therefore had to decide  to postpone the  W8S Swains DXpedi-
tion until March 2023.  This is the only opportunity to be on Swains for  15
days with the same team as our original plans in 2020.
Our project has certainly  not  been canceled but postponed to the spring of
2023.  An extra advantage  that the propagation is much better on the higher
bands". Updates will be posted to  https://swains2020.lldxt.eu/,  as well as
to Twitter and Facebook.
