|6/6/17: You may have noticed that there were no
changes in 2 weeks. During that time, Betty and I were on a trip
visiting Malta and the southern coast of Italy from Sicily to Rome via
small ship. It's a beautiful section of Italy, and we enjoyed good
weather and good food.
(We even saw the volcano on Stromboli island burp up some lava and ash a few times as we passed in the early evening.)
Last night, adxcluster.com/#/ started to show a great Russian activity with RQ, RC, RW, and many other stations. I've added the rules for their "80th Anniversary of the First Soviet Arctic Drifting Ice Stations" award. It's listed in the Short Time Awards box just below this box. For prefix collectors, it is a great place to add a dozen or so to your collection. Ted K1BV

1. I'm also the custodian of the USA-County Award sponsored by CQ Magazine and write the monthly Awards Column in that magazine. The first column appeared in the January 1998 edition. I will need rules and samples of awards on a pretty regular basis. If your club or group sponsors awards, or you can send me good quality photocopies of awards that you have received, I need good quality samples or copies for this column. This is an excellent chance to gain world wide publicity for your group. Send material to: Ted Melinosky K1BV, 12 Wells Woods Road, Columbia, CT. 06237 USA2. Foreign Postage - Bill Plum offers a wide variety of mint foreign postage and DXer supplies at competitive rates. Highly recommended.
