Access to the main functions of www.425dxn.org is provided by the 425DXN App
for Android. It is available on Google Play - free of charge, no ads. Enjoy!
CLUB LOG LIVE STREAMS ---> Live Streams is a new feature that Michael, G7VJR
has added to Club Log. It provides a console view of a Club Log callsign in
real-time, including a map showing the location of the QSOs. Each time new
QSOs are uploaded to Club Log, the Live Stream is automatically updated and
a graphical indication of which bands are in use is presented to help DXers.
Live Streams is available to any Club Log user. The idea is that it can be
used standalone (very helpful if a DXpedition is logging in real-time) and
can also be embedded in other web pages or bookmarked. Instructions can be
found on https://clublog.freshdesk.com/support/solutions/articles/3000092445
ENIGMA RELOADED ---> The 6th "Enigma Reloaded" event will take place from
27 September to 12 October. Complete information on the event and the
associated award is available at http://www.enigma-reloaded.it/.
QSL GALLERY ---> The large collection of QSL cards on Les Nouvelles DX's
website has been updated. Sixteen different galleries include 17,287 cards
for the ten Most Wanted DXCC Entities (2009-18), the 62 deleted DXCC
Entities, obsolete prefixes, stations from Maghreb from 1945 to 1962,
Allied Forces stations in Germany (1945-70), 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:
http://www.lesnouvellesdx.fr/galerieqsl.php. [TNX F6AJA].
VP8/VP8DXU ---> The project planning for the 2020 DXpedition to the South
South Orkney Islands [425DXN 1474] continues: other companies have joined
the corporate sponsors team, the operators are making their travel
arrangements (at their own expense) to meet the "Braveheart" in Chile, and
during the week of 20 October team members will meet to consolidate,
integrate, test and pack the equipment for its transport to Punta Arenas.
The fundraising campaign continues, as "the inconvenient truth is that
amateur radio DXpeditions to the Southern Ocean, and other rare entities
that require a ship charter, are expensive. While the team members will
shoulder much of the cost of the project, we depend on corporate sponsors,
clubs/foundations and individuals to share the cost. Ham radio is our hobby,
businesses require full payment for their services. To date, 37 clubs/
foundations and over 300 individuals have shown their support for the
project. With 6 months before sailing we are at 48% of our fundraising
goal", the VP8/VP8DXU team reported on 1 September. "A subsequent DXpedition
to South Orkney Island will likely not take place for a long time. If you
need South Orkney for an ATNO, band fills, or plan to play in the pileups,
we would appreciate your help before we sail". Visit https://sorkney.com/
