3D2/R  - Organized by the Pacific Islands DXpedition Group (PIDXG), the 3D2Z
         DXpedition to Rotuma Island (OC-060) is scheduled  for  15 November
         to 4 December. The on-site team includes Nathan K4NHW, Jamie M0SDV,
         Mike W0VTT, Gregg W6IZT, Hal W8HC and a sixth member TBA; they will
         operate  locally with three stations.  In addition,  two of Gregg's
         NexGenRiBs will be operated remotely.  It is hoped that  75% of the
         remote contacts  will be made by  young operators,  thanks  to  the
         recently announced partnership between the PIDXG  and  Youth on the
         Air (YOTA) Americas. More information is expected in due course.
5U     - Elvira, IV3FSG  will be active  5U5K  from Niger on 6-20 June.  She
         will operate SSB,  FT8/FT4  (using MSHV in multistream mode),  RTTY
         and maybe some CW on  160-6 metres.  Francesco, IK0XBX will be  her
         pilot station. QSL direct to IK2DUW.
9H     - Henning, OZ2I will be active as 9H6EE from Malta (EU-023)  on 24-29
         May. He will operate CW only, and will participate in the CQ WW WPX
         CW Contest. QSL via Club Log's OQRS (preferred), or via OZ2I.
CT     - CT1END/p, CT2IFE/p, CS7AWH/p, CS7AWL/p and CS7BEK/p  will be active
         as CS5POTA from  Fort Sao Joao Baptista  on  Berlenga Grande Island
         EU-040) on 19-20 July. They will operate QRP on 80-10 and 2 metres,
         SSB, FM and digital modes.  QSL CS5POTA via CT1REP, others via home

EA     - Plans are for team EG5MI  [425DXN 1724]  to reach  Penyeta del Moro
         (EU-151) on  24 May  in the afternoon.  They will  place  a  wooden
         platform  on the rocks,  followed by a first station  (15m CW)  and
         hopefully a  second station  (20m FT8 around 14087 kHz).  They will
         QRT soon after sunset (19.15 UTC).
         On 25 May, soon after sunrise (04.41 UTC),  they will return to the
         islet and  - if the platform is still there -  they will set up the
         CW station (first on 17m and later QSY to 12m)  and  hopefully  the
         FT8 station (first on 20m and later on 15m around 21087 kHz). EG5MI
         will operate  also SSB,  "bands and times  will be decided  on  the
         spot". They will QRT when the batteries die, possibly by 11 UTC.
         A "less optimistic scenario"  involves activating only  one station
         at a time,  having to choose the mode  subject to best rates.  "The
         good news  is that in  such case our time on air  would be longer",
         EA3NT  says.  Check  out  https://www.youtube.com/@EA3NT  for  live
         coverage of  the sailing,  the landing and the set up on the islet,
         and probably even the first QSOs being worked.  QSL via EA5GL. [TNX

CQ DX HALL OF FAME ---> Established in 1967, the CQ DX Hall of Fame  honours
those amateurs who have made major contributions to DXing and DXpeditioning.
The 2024 inductees are:
* Cezar Trifu, VE3LYC - Born and raised  in  Romania,  Trifu  holds a  Ph.D.
  degree in physics. A second-generation amateur radio operator, he has held
  VE3LYC since 1995.  He serves as the Islands on the Air (IOTA)  Operations
  Manager and Deputy General Manager, and is a member of the Board of Direc-
  tors of IOTA Ltd.  One nominator wrote that "Cezar showed extensive knowl-
  edge and enthusiasm in DX  and the IOTA program.  He has directed the IOTA
  program into what it is today.  He is very dedicated and a non-fearing ad-
  venturer with 30-plus  IOTA activations.  His book recalling these  adven-
  tures, 'Dream Big and Dare to Fail', is one every amateur should read."
  Another nominator wrote, "Cezar prepares his DXpeditions with great atten-
  tion to detail,  carefully identifying the hazards involved and mitigating
  the risks by incorporating contingencies.  He always documents what worked
  and how,  from the logistics to the propagation forecast  and  handling of
  pileups,  which is all meant to provide those who go places with  informa-
  tive material that they can adapt to their own needs," and concluded, "Ce-
  zar is a reliable  and  highly skilled operator with the guts of the early
  pioneers!"
* Bernie McClenny, W3UR - He has  impressive  on-the-air bona fides.  He has
  operated from two all-time new DXCC entities: E44DX in Gaza, Palestine and
  4W/W3UR in Baucau, East Timor. Other DXpeditions with which he has partic-
  ipated include A61AJ,  AH3D, OH0/W3UR, VU4AN,  YU8/OH2R, 8P9UR, J77A,  and
  V47UR. He has also been a guest operator multiple times at the  United Na-
  tions Amateur Radio Club, 4U1UN. Bernie enjoys the DXCC Challenge, Islands
  on the Air, and other special awards programs.  However, wrote his nomina-
  tor,  "Bernie's off-the-air accomplishments prompted  this nomination.  He
  has served as  editor  of the  'How's DX?'  column in 'QST',  the  monthly
  membership journal of the  American Radio Relay League, since 1998.  He is
  second in longevity  in this role only to  Rod Newkirk, W9BRD/VA3ZBB,  who
  edited the column from 1947 to 1978.  Bernie  has published  'The Daily DX
  since' 1997, and 'The Weekly DX' since 2001.  This is a combined total  of
  76 years as a DX writer, editor, and publisher. There are few other people
  in the  amateur radio community with  Bernie's institutional knowledge and
  encyclopedic  understanding of the  DX world.  He combines this  with  his
  solid grasp of journalistic principles, making him a trusted, go-to source
  for DX news".
* Richard A. Ross, K2MGA (SK) - He was  president of  CQ Publishing.  He was
  editor, then publisher of  "CQ" Magazine,  and at one time,  published  11
  magazine titles as well as  books,  calendars,  and an extensive video li-
  brary.  Dick was also a  huge supporter of  DXing and contesting,  and be-
  lieved in recognizing his fellow amateurs for their exemplary achievements
  in these endeavors.  The quintessential behind-the-scenes visionary,  Dick
  ensured that "CQ" Magazine  gave extensive coverage to the  DX world,  and
  that it had the proper leadership and infrastructure for its many contests
  - CQ World Wide, Worked All Prefixes,  160 meters,  RTTY,  VHF,  and more.
  Ross passed away on 27 April, aged 84.
The 2024 CQ DX Hall of Fame inductees  were announced on  17 May  during the
Southwest Ohio DX Association's DX Dinner in Dayton.

CQ CONTEST HALL OF FAME ---> Established  in  1986,  the  CQ Contest Hall of
Fame honours those amateurs  who have made major contributions to the art of
radio contesting. The 2024 inductees, announced on 18 May during the Contest
Dinner in Dayton, are:
* Sergio Lima de Almeida, PP5JR - A  cardiovascular surgeon,  he  was  first
  licensed in 1979,  and has held PP5JR since 1985.  He has also operated as
  PR0R, PQ0MM, PT5A, ZZ5JR, PX5E, ZX5J, and PT5J.  Sergio is a member of the
  Araucaria DX Group.  In 1996, he began construction of a station in  Serra
  da Boa Vista  which is incorporated  to the Araucaria DX Group.  Over  the
  years, he has mentored  many people to become contest operators.  A peren-
  nial WRTC participant,  Sergio has also been involved  in several  DXpedi-
  tions, including one to Bhutan as A52JR in 2014. He often enters the  ARRL
  International DX Contest, CQ WW DX Contest, CQ WW WPX Contest, WAE DX Con-
  Test,  CQMM DX Contest  on single bands,  most often 10, 15, or 20 metres,
  and has won first place for South America or the world numerous times.  In
  recent years,  he has operated  multi-single,  and placed first  in  South
  America or the world. Most notably,  his spouse and three children are all
  licensed amateur radio operators, and often operate together in contests.
* Steven M. London, N2IC - He has been at or near the top of the leaderboard
  in  virtually  every contest  he has entered  for decades.  He most  often
  enters contests in the  single-operator category,  and  challenges himself
  sometimes with  single-band,  low power,  and QRP entries.  His scores are
  consistently off the charts. To give just one example, he entered the 2021
  ARRL CW Sweepstakes in the QRP category and scored 166,992 points. That is
  a score that many  high-power  entrants could not  even approach,  and the
  second place  finisher in the  QRP category was  54,000 points behind.  He
  also  has won  the  North America QSO Party (NAQP)  five times as a 2BSIQ,
  four times  with  100 watts and once QRP.  Steve  travels  extensively  to
  operate at  multi-operator multi-transmitter stations,  notably K3LR,  and
  has been involved in the World Radiosport Team Championship six times with
  two Top Five finishes. He has been a valued source of information  for new
  and old  contesters alike  on station  and antenna design,  and  operating
  strategy.  A member of the N1MM contesting software development team since
  2008, Steve created a customized version of N1MM to support Radio In a Box
  (RIB)  operations.  A retired engineer,  Steve lives on a  mountaintop  in
  southwestern New Mexico.  He is a devoted communications technician with a
  volunteer fire department,  providing essential communication in  forested
  areas.
* Richard A. Ross, K2MGA (SK) - Dick was keenly aware of the legacy of  CQ's
  contest program,  beginning with the very first  CQ World Wide contest  in
  1948. The contest program was his pride and joy as he witnessed its growth
  into a collection  of the  world's largest competitions  that we enjoy  to
  this day.  The quintessential  behind-the-scenes visionary,  Dick  ensured
  that  "CQ"  Magazine  gave  extensive coverage  to the  contesting  world,
  providing  for  a time  a  dedicated publication  called  "CQ Contest",  a
  regular contesting column in "CQ" Magazine, video content, and full narra-
  tive reports and  line scores in the  magazine  long after other  entities
  moved this information online.

CQ AMATEUR RADIO HALL OF FAME ---> The CQ  Amateur  Radio  Hall of Fame  was
established in January 2001 to recognize those who have made major contribu-
tions to amateur radio as a whole,  and  radio amateurs  who have made major
contributions to society at large. The 2024 inductees are:
* Joachim Kraft, DL8HCZ (CT1HZE) - An  enthusiastic  amateur radio  operator
  since 1980, he has been committed to the technical development of  amateur
  radio and research into propagation phenomena in the VHF/UHF and microwave
  bands since 1989 by publishing the  English-language magazine "DUBUS" with
  a team of specialist authors from all over the world  working on a  volun-
  tary basis. In particular, this magazine  researches and analyzes  DX suc-
  cesses on the 6m, 2m, and higher bands. The evaluation of,  and statistics
  on, sporadic-E DX QSOs in the 2m band,  which Joachim  painstakingly  com-
  piles and  updates annually, spans  50-plus years  and is probably  unique
  worldwide.  "DUBUS" was founded in 1972  by a group of radio amateurs from
  Berlin, and was already being used to exchange technical  and  DX informa-
  tion across all national borders at the time of the Iron Curtain. For over
  35 years,  Joachim has been involved in this magazine together  with other
  radio amateurs, and for almost a quarter of a century he has been its pub-
  lisher. Today, it is read in over 50 countries.
* Tim Duffy, K3LR - Already  a member of the  CQ Contest Hall of Fame  since
  2006, is being inducted into the CQ Amateur Radio Hall of Fame because  of
  his lifetime achievements  that far  transcend his contesting  accomplish-
  ments. As a contester,  Tim has hosted over  160 different  amateur  radio
  operators  from around the world  to his  superstation (11 operating posi-
  tions and 14 towers) since 1992.  He has been the moderator of the Hamven-
  tion Antenna forum  for 36 years,  and has served as  chairman of  Contest
  University (15 years),  the Dayton Contest Dinner (29 years),  and the Top
  Band Dinner.  He also co-coordinates the Contest Super Suite (37 years) in
  Dayton  during  the yearly  Hamvention.  He also founded  the popular  RFI
  reflector  ([email protected]),  and has moderated  it since  1999 .  Tim
  serves on the board of directors of the World Wide Radio Operators Founda-
  tion (WWROF) as Chairman, and is  President Emeritus of the  Radio Club of
  America (RCA).  Tim is multi-year President  of the  Mercer County Amateur

YASME EXCELLENCE AWARD ---> Established  in  2008  by  the  Yasme Foundation
(https://www.yasme.org/), the Excellence Award  is presented to  individuals
and groups who, through their own service, creativity, effort and dedication
have made a significant contribution to amateur radio.  The contribution may
be in recognition of technical, operating or organizational achievement,  as
all three are necessary  for  amateur radio to grow and  prosper.  The Yasme
Excellence Award is in the form of a cash grant and an individually-engraved
crystal globe. The latest recipients, announced on 23 May, are:
* Randy Hall, K7AGE - "Randy is a 40-year active ham,  whose biggest contri-
  bution is a large library of YouTube videos - many created for the newcom-
  er (https://www.youtube.com/@K7AGE) - of good quality  and on many topics.
  Video is the way most new hams get started learning about ham radio and he
  has really done a  good job.  He is also on Twitter (https://x.com/K7AGE).
  There  is plenty in his library  and any of us  might find  something new.
  Randy exemplifies the ham radio mentor".
* Rudy Severns, N6LF - "If  you  have an 'ARRL Antenna Book',  you have seen
  Rudy's work. In recent editions, he has been instrumental  in revising and
  expanding the material in the chapter 'Effects of Ground'. For example, he
  has developed  a method of measuring  soil characteristics at RF.  He  has
  written extensively about how the radials and ground screens affect radia-
  tion efficiency.  Rudy also builds and measures the systems  to verify his
  models. Rudy was one of the experimental licensees  who helped open up the
  new 630 and 2200 meter bands, as well. He has published an impressive body
  of work at https://www.antennasbyn6lf.com/". [TNX K4ZW]
