3D2/R  - The website for the 3D2Z DXpedition to Rotuma Island (15 November-4
         December) [425DXN 1725] is up and running: https://rotuma2024.com/.
         Joining the team is 23-year-old  Connor, KD9SLV.  The 6-member team
         will operate locally with three stations on 160-6 metres; they will
         take part in the  CQ WW DX CW Contest using another callsign (TBA).
         In addition, two of W6IZT's NexGenRiBs will be operated remotely by
         a team of young amateurs. QSL via M0OXO's OQRS.
         The  Northern California DX Foundation has announced  its financial
         support for the DXpedition, as it "features two important NCDXF in-
         terests, youth in DXpeditions and the RIB, Radio In a Box concept".
         The  NCDXF  board  has funded the  DXpedition's request  and  added
         additional support  for the two young operators joining the team on
         the island.  The mission  of  NCDXF (https://www.ncdxf.org)  is  to
         provide necessary financial support for well-organized  DXpeditions
         to desirable DXCC Entities and to support advances in Dxpeditioning
         skills, technology, and infrastructure.

TESTING FOR JARVIS ---> As the N5J DXpedition to Jarvis Island will be chal-
lenged by both the season (especially on the low bands) and antenna restric-
tions, a series of preliminary tests will be conducted between  25 June  and
25 July.  This will include testing  new antennas  and  the extended  remote
operator network from two locations:
* on 25 June-2 July,  FW7JV  (Wallis and Futuna)  will be test the  low band
  antennas (160, 80 and 40m) and a new 40/20m antenna;
* on 10-25 July, K8R (American Samoa) will be test all systems  on all bands
  CW, SSB and FT8, including activity during the IARU HF World Championship.
Actual signal reports will be appreciated during both test periods.

YASME EXCELLENCE AWARD ---> Established  in  2008  by  the  Yasme Foundation

and groups who, through their own service, creativity, effort and dedication
have made a significant contribution to amateur radio.  The contribution may

Excellence Award is in the form of a cash grant and an individually-engraved
crystal globe.
The latest recipient, announced on 13 June, is Raisa Skrynnikova, R1BIG "for
very actively  promoting  amateur radio  on YouTube.  Her 'YL Raisa' YouTube
channel has  more than  15,000 subscribers from all over the world,  showing

charm, she attracts newcomers and encourages radio amateurs that are looking
for new challenges". [TNX K4ZW]
