3B9FR: 6M LOG ERRORS ---> "I have uploaded several 6m logs over the last few
days on behalf of  Robert, 3B9FR on Rodrigues Island",  Charles, M0OXO says.
"Quite a lot of these 6m entries had a time value of '00:00' in the imported
ADIF file. I have no idea what went wrong there, but there is no way to edit
them as I cannot ascertain the correct times.  In view of this, if your time
does not match  or the QSO is 'not found',  please report it  by way of  the
'Not In Log?'form on M0OXO's OQRS, and I will resolve the issue for you".

FT8WW ---> The French national IARU society (REF) "has requested the EOST to
kindly  allow  an early resumption of  FT8WW activity  as of 11 March".  See
https://twitter.com/crozet2022  for updates.  The School and Observatory for
Earth Sciences  (Ecole et Observatoire des Sciences de la Terre, EOST)  runs
the permanent magnetic station located on Possession Island.

RSGB COMMONWEALTH CONTEST ---> The 86th edition of the  Commonwealth  (BERU)
Contest (https://berucontest.wordpress.com)  will  be held  on  11-12 March,
