3Y0I (BOUVET), T22T (TUVALU) AND T33T (BANABA) DXPEDITION NEWS. The Rebel
DX Group reports on FaceBook (https://www.facebook.com/rebeldxgroup):
Unfortunately, our plans regarding activating Banaba Island and Tuvalu
has been affected by the current COVID-19 situation - just like in case
of many other DXpeditions around the world. We're forced to postpone the
DXpedition, but it's not canceled. No worries! We'll resume our plans
once the island would become accessible again. Meanwhile, we keep an eye
on any possibilities to continue our plans in terms of activation Bouvet
Island at the end of this year. Surprisingly, the long wait until the
end of 2020 may not affect our plans at all and we'll be able to continue
with our initial 3Y0I plans without any disruption. We still miss a portion
of our necessary budget to activate Bouvet. Just like in case of many
other top-most-wanted-DXCC DXpeditions, it can't happen without your
support. We kindly ask for any possible donations via our GFM page at:
Don't forget to add your callsign in the donation form. Once donated,
your callsign would automatically be listed in the donors' list there.

I'm seriously contemplating FT8 on 160/80 meters ONLY, but it all depends

LA7AWW via LA4O (by the Bureau). Activity this past weekend (May 8-10th),
reminding the efforts by LA7A during WW2 (thereby the special callsign
LA7A + WW = LA7AWW), when he was transmitting messages on behalf of
the home guard. However, he was beamed in by the Nazi occupants, and
killed. LA7AWW will be operating portable from the mountain top where
LA7A was transmitting and killed in March 1945. Equipment will also

NEW QSL ROUTE FOR EY8MM. There is a new QSL Manager for EY8MM. QSL via
W0VTT. Mike, W0VTT, will have all logs for EY8MM starting back to
Jan. 1, 1994.
QSL ROUTE. Vasiliy, RW6HS, informs OPDX that he is the QSL Manager for
the following: D075AM, D075DB, D075DO, D075EN, D075HZ, D075IL, D075MK,
D075P, D075SK, D075SN, D075SM, D075ST, D075TR, D075YS and D075ZG
VP8PJ QSL STATUS. Gene, K5GS, reports: The VP8PJ cards are printed and
were shipped from ON5UR QSL Print Services in Belgium to Tim, M0URX,
in the UK. Tim has the tracking numbers and after customs processing
expects the cards to be delivered soon. The envelopes, labels and pre-
printed postage are prepared and awaiting the cards. Once in hand the
"stuffing" process will begin. Until the Covid-19 lock down in the UK
is lifted Tim will probably have to do this work alone, it will take
longer than usual to complete. The initial mailing will include all
the VP8PJ confirmation requests in the system through the mailing date.
Bureau cards will be bulk shipped directly to the inbound bureaus early
next year.... 73, GS K5GS
