CQ 2013 HALL OF FAMERS ---> CQ Magazine announced on 17 May  the  2013  Hall
of Fame inductees. The CQ Amateur Radio Hall  of  Fame  was  established  in
January 2001 to  recognize  individuals  -  radio  amateurs  or  not  -  who
significantly affected the  course  of  Amateur  Radio,  as  well  as  radio
amateurs who have made significant contributions either  to  amateur  radio,
to their professional careers or  to  some  other  aspect  of  life  on  our
planet.  This  year's  inductees  are:  Evelyn  Garrison  (WS7A,  SK),  Joel
Kleinman (N1BKE, SK), Laurie Margolis (G3UML/GPC3L),  Michael  Owen  (VK3KI,
SK), Harry Rubinstein (ex-9EEV, SK),  Walker  Tompkins  (K6ATX),  Joe  Walsh
(WB6ACU) and William G. (Bill) Welsh (W6DDB, SK).
The CQ Contest Hall of Fame (established in 1986) and  the  CQ  DX  Hall  of
Fame (established in 1967) honour those  amateurs  who  not  only  excel  in
personal performance in these major areas of amateur  radio,  but  who  also
"give back" to the hobby in outstanding ways. This year's inductees  in  the
CQ Contest HoF are Dale Green (VE7SV) and Charles "Chas"  Fulp  (K3WW).  The
2013 inductees to the CQ  DX  HoF  are  Vladimir  Bykov  (UA4WHX/AC4LN)  and
Robert "Gary" Dixon (K4MQG).

DXCC NEWS ---> Over the years some applicants  have  had  TI9CCC  for  Cocos
Island rejected in their DXCC application  mostly  due  to  "Incorrect  Date
Period". The issue with the dates for this operation have been resolved.  If
you had this operation rejected, and your confirmation falls  between  15-28
February 1984, send an e-mail to bmoore[@]arrl.org to be placed on the  list
for an update to your record. Also approved for DXCC is 9G5EME (Ghana,  2013
operation). [TNX NC1L]

HEARD ISLAND 2015 ---> The expedition to Heard Island has  been  rescheduled
for January 2015. "The primary reason for this  decision  was  the  cost  of
using the preferred vessel, the Marion Dufresne to put  the  team  on  Heard
Island for the  required  time.  In  spite  of  extensive  negotiations  and
rescheduling of the cruise, it became clear that  the  cost  of  using  this
vessel will exceed $1 million, and therefore the total cost for the  project
would be about $1.5 million, as we noted earlier. In spite of  our  plan  to
increase the team size to 50 (which the M-D can  accommodate)  to  partially
cover this cost, we reluctantly concluded that  sponsorship  at  this  level
would be impossible. We have therefore decided to delay  the  expedition  to
January 2015, to allow more time to restructure the project, locate  a  more
suitable vessel, and bring the cost more in line  with  projected  available
resources".
One of the benefits of this  rescheduling/restructuring  is  that  "we  will
plan for amateur radio operations to be carried out over a longer  time,  up
to 30 or more days". A new radio team will be  assembled:  "the  budget  for
the restructured project will likely be significantly less  than  $500k.  We
plan for a total team of 12-15 persons, and we  will  solicit  team  members
with  experience,  motivation,  and  multiple  skills".  Read  the  complete
announcement on www.heardisland.org.

LOTW SOFTWARE ---> The ARRL will release a new version of Trusted  QSL,  the
open-source development project responsible for developing  and  maintaining
the three Logbook  of  the  World  (LoTW)  client-side  applications:  TQSL,
TQSLCert and  the  TrustedQSL  library.  After  six  weeks  of  public  beta
testing, version 1.14 is ready for official release and  will  be  available
for download from the ARRL website beginning Monday, May 20.
Version 1.14 includes these new features:
- Log files can be signed and uploaded over the  internet  to  LoTW  in  one
  operation.
- Errors in Station Locations are reported (for example,  incorrect  CQ  and
  ITU zones).
- QSOs that need not be  re-submitted  ("duplicates")  are  brought  to  the
  user's attention.
- Error reporting has been improved.
- Installation on Windows has been improved.
- Users are notified when a new version becomes available.
- Documentation has been improved.
Upgrading to version 1.14 is not mandatory, but  is  encouraged.  Users  who
choose not to upgrade will not  be  able  to  access  the  new  features  in
version 1.14, but they will still be able  to  upload  logs  into  the  LoTW
system.

QSL OJ0W ---> All of the oustanding QSOs (August-September 2012)  have  been
confirmed automatically via the bureau. If a direct card  is  still  needed,
send it to Pasi, OH3WS. [TNX OH3WS]

WRTC 2014 ---> "We have implemented a new  WRTC2014  volunteer  and  contact
management database. We will use this to find people  with  skills/interests
that  match  our  needs":  www.wrtc2014.org/wrtc2014-organization/volunteer/
[TNX K5ZD]

XZ1K ---> Simon, HS0ZIB is active as XZ1K [425DXN 1148] on 20 metres  PSK-31
from Kawthaung, Myanmar during the weekends. QSOs can be checked and  direct
cards can be requested at  http://www.myradioclub.org/xz1k/.  "LOTW  is  not
yet available", he says.  "I  submitted  documents  to  the  ARRL  for  DXCC
approval on 30 April, but although the package is shown as delivered to  the
ARRL I have had no feedback". Check his qrz.com page for updates.

Z81X ---> "As Amateur Radio is only provisionally regulated in South  Sudan,
the  Radio  Arcala  Fellowship  Group  of  Finland  (OH8X)  was   granted  a
provisional license (Z81X) to facilitate operating events during  visits  by
the project representatives. We expect that Z81X will be  activated  several
times during the course of this project, notably on low bands  and  in  CQWW
Contests.
The initial Z81X activity, with one radio only,  was  concluded  on  15  May
with more than 20,000 QSOs (Europe 43%, North America  29%  and  Asia  26%).
Olli, OH0XX and Martti, OH2BH have now returned home. "As the entire project
is carried out on  a  voluntary basis, the group will accept donations to be
used solely for offsetting  direct project expenses incurred in South Sudan.
Club Log  OQRS  is  now  active  for  QSL  requests (bureau  or  direct) and
project  support".  Read the complete  "Project Goodwill South Sudan Interim
Report" at http://www.qrz.com/db/Z81X
