4X     - Team  4X2DS  will be active  from the shores of the  Dead Sea,  the
         lowest land-based elevation on Earth  (440 metres below sea level),
         from 30 May to 3 June. QSL via LoTW, eQSL, or via 4Z5TT. A certifi-
         cate will be available,  see https://www.qrz.com/db/4X2DS  for more
9M2    - Members of the Kuala Lumpur DX Team will be active as 9M4IOTA  from
         Kapas Island (AS-073),  West Malaysia from  31 May to 2 June.  They
         will operate  SSB, CW and  digital modes on  80-10 metres.  Updates
         will be posted to https://www.facebook.com/kldxteam/.
DL     - The Berlin Airlift  was an operation that carried supplies by plane
         to the Allied sectors of  West Berlin over a Russian blockade.  For
         more than a year,  hundreds of  American, British and French  cargo
         planes ferried provisions to  West Berlin's  Tempelhof,  Gatow  and
         Tegel airfields.  Commemorating the 75th anniversary  of the end of
         the Berlin Airlift,  three  special event stations  will be  active
         between 12 May and 24 June: DL0GWW for Gatow, DL0TXL for Tegel, and
         DL0THF for Tempelhof.  QSL via  LoTW,  QRZ Logbook,  and  the  DARC
         Community Logbook;  paper cards will not be provided,  but an award
         will be available: https://ham-awards.de/index.php/75luft/.
EA     - Depending on weather and seas conditions,  a three-man team  (Henry
         EA5EOR, Ilde EA5HEU, and Christian EA3NT)  will be active as  EG5MI
         from  Penyeta del Moro (EU-151) on 25 May. They will place a wooden
         platform on the rocks on  24 May at about 16 UTC,  and return on 25
         May at about 4 UTC, hoping to be QRV as soon as possible. "We don't
         discard to start same  Friday 24th evening  with a very lightweight
         setup (one car battery)", Christian says,  "and run for a couple of
         hours to try to get advantage of the greyline and give a chance  to
         the West Coast".  Most likely they will be QRV on 20, 17, 40 and 6m
         CW, SSB and FT8. If he gets enough subscribers to his YouTube chan-
         nel (http://www.youtube.com/@EA3NT),  Christian will try and broad-
         cast live the landing attempt. Penyeta del Moro is a rocky islet of
         almost 2 metres in width and 6 metres in length; an iron lighthouse
         of about 5m in height was placed there in 1861. QSL via EA5GL.
F      - Members  of the  Association des radioamateurs de l'Indre  will  be

ARRL SYSTEMS SERVICE DISRUPTION ---> "We are in the process of responding to
a  serious incident  involving access  to our network and headquarters-based
systems", the ARRL notified on 16 May. "Several services, such as Logbook of
The World (LoTW)  and  the ARRL Learning Center,  are affected.  Please know
that  restoring access is our  highest priority,  and  we are  expeditiously
working with  outside industry experts  to address the issue.  We appreciate
your  patience.  This story will be  updated  with  new  developments"  (see

CY9C: ST PAUL ISLAND ---> The  Canadian Department of Fisheries  and  Oceans
has issued the written permit for the  CY9C DXpedition to St Paul Island (26
August-5 September),  and the ARRL has pre-approved the  DXpedition for DXCC
credit. The permit is for the small Northeast Island,  as the main island is
now under the jurisdiction of the Canadian Wildlife Service.
A 24-foot vehicle has been rented and reserved for early August to transport
a lot of the gear to Dingwall (Nova Scotia),  which will be the base for all
pre-DXpedition activities.  The team will use two helicopters  and a boat to
transport the operators and the equipment to the island.
Beginning on 26 May, a  week long  work session  for CY9C will take place in
North Carolina.  Team members  W0GJ, W0PR and  WA4DAN  will meet up  and  go
through and inventory all of the  DXpedition gear.  The plan is to erect the
new operating tents,  test and run  the seven new generators,  assemble  and
test antennas and inventory all of the coaxial cables.
"The team is very grateful to all the  clubs and individuals who have joined
our  efforts.   Additional  support is encouraged  and  can be made  through
