have arrived. All QSL requests for Europe have been answered except for
some requests without SAE and some with multiple QSL requests. He is
still waiting for the CE9/F2JD cards... be patient!

MORE ON CE0Z QSLS. Bob, N2OO, reports: "The CE0Z QSL cards have been
printed AND are in the USA, and enroute to me at this moment. We have
pre-processed the log so the cards will start to go out 'steadily' once
they arrive here. I don't expect that to happen for another couple of
weeks. So, please be patient everyone! Since we have more cards to deal
with, we will not be quite as quick as Jean-Michel! (good job J-M)"

QSL ROUTE CHANGE. Gary, K7ZD, reports that "Due to increasing serious
health problems (XYL) I will no longer be managing any activities by
Tony, HK1AR,...etc/W4OI, from this date forward (18th, June 2006).
Please send ALL further HK QSL requests to Tony, W4OI. I can and will
answer all requests for 5K5Z, HK0/HK1AR and HK1AR for QSOS made BEFORE
09 FEB 2006. Reminder - QSOs made with HK1AR between February 10-21st,

QSL Manager Alan, VK4AAR, advises OPDX readers that "they should be
VERY CAREFUL when QSLing and sending IRCs for return postage costs. The
large IRCs have an expiry date printed on them and won't be accepted if
they are past that date, but my local PO (post office) has been lenient
with me up to now. I would imagine that, in view of this, the older
(small) ones will no longer be accepted by the post office, and they
will be of no use to me either. I suggest that DXers send U.S. dollars,
if possible. A new IRC in USA costs more than a dollar in the post
office, anyway." Alan is the QSL Manager for: 9VA, 9V1DX, C21RH,
KH2VM, P29RH, V63PD, VIANARE, VKMM (Macquarie), VK6AN (OC-266),
