KH2/DL2AH ---> Ulrich, DL2AH has had to cancel his activity from Guam (16-30
September).  He had "booked and paid from Germany via Airbnb a wonderful ac-
commodation with a huge garden (space enough for five Triple Leg antennas)",
he says, only to find out that "the offer was a fake! By lucky circumstances
I found a new (affordable!) Airbnb - unfortunately  without space for my an-
tenna".  His  next  stop will be  Majuro, Marshall Islands  as  V73AH  (4-16

T22T ---> Team T22T has been active with four stations from  Tuvalu  since 3
UTC on 21 September, and according to Club Log has logged some 7500 FT8 QSOs
so far. They have huge noise problems  on the low bands.  QSL via Club Log's
OQRS. Updates will be posted to https://www.facebook.com/rebeldxgroup.

UK/EI DX SSB CONTEST ---> In partnership  with the  RSGB, the  IRTS  and the
GMDX Group, the  2023 UK/EI DX SSB Contest  will take place  from 12 UTC  on
30 September to 12 UTC on 1 October.  The aim of this contest is  to promote
contacts between stations in the  United Kingdom & Ireland  and stations  in
the rest of the world.  See https://www.ukeicc.com/dx-contest-rules.php  for
complete details. Next year's events will be held on 27-28 April (CW) and 31
August-1 September (SSB).

V62P & V62S ---> Cezar, VE3LYC will be active as  V62P from Pulap Atoll (OC-
155), and as V62S from Satawal Atoll (OC-299)  between 25 October and 10 No-
vember [425DXN 1687].  "I just finished a very informative,  almost two-hour
Zoom meeting with the boat captain and my contacts down in FSM", he reported
on  21 September.  "We reviewed every step of  the logistical plan,  and the
captain confirmed the transportation schedule  I already announced,  as well
as a number of other logistical details.  Meanwhile, he indicated that rela-
tively  small delays  may occur,  due to weather conditions and/or other un-
foreseen reasons that may arise.  However, this is  not going  to shorten my
stay on each atoll.  If anything, my stays  will be longer  than  originally
Cezar is  "extremely grateful for the support received  so far  from several
organizations and enthusiastic individuals.  It was my decision  and  nobody
else's to embark on this  rather complex and  expensive endeavour,  and I am
prepared  to bear  its cost".  However,  he wishes  to encourage  more  IOTA
chasers and DXers to support this project and assist him in offsetting some
of those expenses: https://v6iota.weebly.com/.

Alex, PA1AW will be the  Chief Pilot in charge of gathering all relevant in-
formation from regional pilots and channel such information to the W8S  team
on  the island.  See  https://swains2020.lldxt.eu/the-pilots-team/  for  the

ZD9W ---> Yuris, YL2GM left Cape Town on  15 September, but the  "Lance"  is

September, the estimated time of arrival was 26 September (subject to change
