4W8X ---> "We were  in trouble deep as  - until a few hours ago -  we didn't
have a network connection  between our two sites",  the team reported on  17
November  (http://www.timor-leste-dx.de/index.php).  "The 500m  Fiber Optics
cable which  we brought  was obviously damaged  while it was laid out.  Only
today we got a 5 GHz WiFi bridge  link up and running.  Many contacts of the
last days  were not correctly  uploaded to Club Log,  but - by now - we have
made a  full upload of our log.  If you still don't see  your contact(s)  on
Club Log right now, please use the web form on our homepage and let us know.
For the  coming days  full operation of up to  12 signals  at the  same time
(plus EME) can be expected". 

IDXC 2024 ---> Registration  is now open for the  75th International DX Con-
vention,  to be held at the  Visalia Conference Center on  12-14 April 2024.
See https://www.dxconvention.org/registration.html for complete information.

PR0T ---> "Still within the first 24h of operations,  some progress has been
done", it was reported on  17 November at 13.32 UTC.  "Two fully operational
stations are  on the air.  A fully  remote FT8 station  and  a  local SSB/CW
station. All the operation till now is being run in low power.  Later today,
the team hopes to have HP available.  The goal is to keep on  exploring  the
maximum of 12m and 17m on FT8  and  the other bands on SSB/CW.  The team  is
aware of some  technical problems regarding  the delay on the  realtime log-
ging. The IT team is already dealing with that". See https://www.pr0t.com.br
for updates.

WINQSL ---> First released  in 1995,  the software  originated from  a  QSL
Manager listing on paper from 1982.  The latest version, accompanied by the

https://www.winqsl.com/. [TNX DF6EX]

YASME NEWS ---> The Yasme Foundation  reports  that a new  African node  has
been added to the Reverse Beacon Network (RBN)  with the activation of  7Q6M
in Malawi.  The node was funded through  a grant from  Amateur Radio Digital
Communications, https://www.ardc.net/), managed and implemented by Yasme. At
its 8 November meeting, the Yasme board also approved funding for a node in
Ushuaia, at the southern tip of Argentina. [TNX K4ZW]
