possible during the contest period. QSL Manager will be KQ8M.
ITU NEWS. The ARRL DX Bulletin reported that a press release on November
4 by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), stated that the
Republic of Moldova (RO and UO) and the Republic of Bosnia Hercegovina
(YU4 and 4N4) have been admitted to the ITU.
OOPS! DEPARTMENT. Under "NEED TO UPDATE YOUR DATABASE", the line that
read "YU5 & 4N4" should have read "YU4 & 4N4".
