3Y0J: THEY HAVE NOT GIVEN UP --- >"Since  the  cancelation  of 3Y0J",  N6PSE
posted to the  Bouvet 2023 DXpedition's  Facebook page on 18 June,  "we have
been working closely with Nigel Jolly  to form a new plan,  with a new owner
of 'Braveheart'  and  a revised  payment plan  that enables  Nigel Jolly  to
continue managing  'Braveheart'  and will keep it available for  DXpeditions
for years to come.  We are working out the details of this plan and  hope to
have some very positive news very soon. We have not given up!"

HAM RADIO WORLD ---> For the second year in a row, Ham Radio Friedrichshafen
has been cancelled owing to the pandemic, and has been replaced by a free of
charge online event - Ham Radio World - which will take place on 25-27 June.
Ham Radio World  is  "a virtual  2D world  in your browser  which also  is a
massive  videoconferencing tool.  With your avatar you can explore Ham Radio
2021, visit stands,  meet and chat with friends in  an instant video confer-
ence. There will be also many presentations of which several will be held in
English language. The traditional  International Meeting  will take place on
26 June from 17 to 18 UTC  in room Liechtenstein".  Access to the event will
open on 25 June at 13 UTC on https://ham.darc.de/.

KL7FBI ---> Fred, KB4DMQ "is scheduled to leave Shemya (NA-037)  on 14 July,
and will continue to operate until then, in his spare time, as KL7FBI", says
Cezar, VE3LYC. "QSL cards will be available from Fred  after his return back
home, by direct request to his home address": Fred R. Anderson, 918 Abeto St
NE, Palm Bay FL 32905, USA.

M0OXO & M0URX: QSL BUREAU SERVICE ---> Both  Charles, M0OXO  and  Tim, M0URX
posted the following message to their respective websites:
"A few months ago I considered closing the Bureau option on some of my call-
signs on OQRS as the demands and costs are getting unsustainable. I actually
decided NOT to do that  and  at this current time,  all Bureau cards are now
ready to be dispatched in the next couple of weeks.
However, the global pandemic has caused  a major restriction on  air freight
worldwide which  has led to  enormous increases  in costs.  For example,  10
small packages to ARRL have increased from £14  in total to £103,  while the
parcel to Japan JARL from £50 to £160, if you multiply the increases  to all
90 IARU Bureau destinations the cost is quite a shock to bear.
I therefore had no choice but to introduce a $0.30c charge  on  Bureau cards
on OQRS to help alleviate losses in my future Bureau mailings.
I appreciate to some, this may not be very popular  but let me stress,  this
is NOT  about making money.  Applying a small charge/contribution  will go a
huge way to combat the deficit in Postage Costs to World Bureaux. Without it
the Bureau service will cease".

MAGIC BAND ---> For those  who might have missed  the excellent presentation
"Modes of Propagation on 6 Meters" by Carl Luetzelschwab, K9LA, the complete
program  video  is   now  available  on  the  Madison  DX  Club's   website:
