Derek, AA5BT, has my vote for a CW SquINT.  My youngest, twins
age 9, will be taking their Novice exams the week after the
SSB SquINT.  While I'm not sure they'll pass, either way they'd
be interesting in giving the CW version a shot. (at least that's
the impression they give!)

Subject: Have you heard any old Russian prefixes lately?
Message-ID: <9504031833.AA00992 at>

I worked UF6VAI in Soviet Georgia last week.  I wonder if anyone has worked
anyone else in Russia, say, in the last 6 months, who is still using an old
callsign which does not fit into the current callsign structure (i.e.
Georgia uses 4L now).

Please EMAIL me directly - I'll summarize to the list.

Thanks & 73
