QSL INFORMATION -

Pirates & FT5GA:

The following has been released by Carl, N4AA of QRZ DX / DX Magazine
and is displayed in its entirety:

   Hello DXers: This is a SPECIAL BULLETIN and the following will reveal
why:
   I have been contacted by a person (who I will NOT name) who has the
capability to pin point (very accurately) the source of an on the air
signal. What I am saying is - this person has the professional equipment
and the expertise to monitor a signal on the ham bands and determine to
a very narrow area where that signal is coming from.
   Apparently there was a pirate on 10114 last night signing FT5GA. That
signal was NOT coming from Glorioso, it was coming from QUEBEC in
CANADA, NNE of Montreal. On two other days, pirate signals were
monitored signing FT5GA, one was coming from LATVIA and the other from
the SOUTH COAST OF SICILY.
   These pirates should be relatively easy for "local" DXers to find.
They need to be specifically identified and pressure brought to bear on
them to cease their deliberate and illegal activities.
   The "source" that I mentioned above will continue to provide periodic
reports like this and I will continue to publish the locations of these
irresponsible persons. I ask for those within the areas identified pay
particular attention and use whatever means are available to them to put
a stop to these activities.
   Your cooperation with the identification of these pirates will be
appreciated by all of us.

CANADA HAMS - 3 years till current mobile use outlawed:

  Mobile ham radios will be required to operate hands free in the
Ontario province of Canada, they have less that 3 years to comply.
  "To help these businesses stay competitive, Ontario is granting a
three-year phase-out period for the commercial use of two-way radios,
including mobile and CB radios, to allow for hands-free technologies to
be developed."
  "The use of hand-held radios by amateur radio operators (who provide
assistance, especially in emergency situations such as severe storms and
blackouts) will be phased out within three years, to allow hands-free
technologies to be developed."

QSL manager DJ8NK direct, bureau (new IRC's are OK, old IRC's with
