EU-010/EU-012. (Cancelled/Update) Fraser, G4BJM, was expected to be active as GM4BJM from Yell Island (EU-012) for the RSGB IOTA Contest (July 25-26th), but had to cancel because «their accommodation had fallen through and was unable to find an alternative that was acceptable to his XYL.» (LAST MINUTE UPDATE): Fraser has found an alternative, and has booked the QTH and ferry to near North Uist, Outer Hebrides Islands. His activity will be CW only.

David states, «I’ll have a linked dipole for both bands (40/20m) and a vertical for 20m running QRP on SSB mode with a Yaesu FT-817. Please spot me (I may or may not have internet/cell service), or look for self-spots on http://dxsummit.fi » QSL via his home callsign. Check  QRZ.com in the future for schedule updates.


OC-129. Lenny, N7MOT, is now active as DU6/N7MOT from Panay Island, which is part of the Visayan Islands, Philippines. He retired here (his XYL’s homeland, DV6/N5CMG) in April 2019.
