7Q, MALAWI. QSL Manager Allan, G0IAS, informs OPDX that he dropped Harry,

cards for Malcolm, 7Q7MH (Allan states, "ALL that I have received have
now been returned."). Allan also mentions that 1 USD is no longer enough
postage for return, even into EUROPE. NOR are envelopes with local currency
on them, he has half a dozen with Spanish and German stamps... the ROYAL
MAIL will NOT accept them.

SOUTH PACIFIC TOUR (Update/Change). Operators Pista/HA5AO and George/HA5UK,
who planned to activate Fiji, Tuvalu, Western Kiribati and possibly Banaba,
between October 1st and November 15th (OPDX.1010), have now reschedule
their DXpedition to January/February 2012. This due to difficulties in
organizing and making arrangement for the transportation to Banaba.
Excerpts from their Web page states they plan to operate from Tuvalu
on January 12th, as T2HA. They will fly back to Fiji on January 26th,
and do 3 days of operations as 3D2HA, before leaving for Tarawa, on
January 31st. Operations from West Kiribati will last until February 23rd.
They will attempt to go over to Banaba Island for 7-10 days within this
period. The Web page states (edited), "We will do our best to get over
to Banaba, but the exact time of T33HA Banaba operation can be announced
from Tarawa only. Two stations will be on the air from 160-10 meters
bands on CW, SSB, RTTY and some PSK and SSTV modes. The landing permit
to Banaba, licenses and flight tickets to Fiji, Tuvalu and Tarawa are in
hand. The radios, antennas, PAs and other technical stuff have already
been put together and packed. The weight of these packages exceeds the
100 kg (200 pounds). We will bring everything with us, as excess baggages.
This DXpedition is not an expedition with dozens of operators, neither
family holiday. It will be a 'simple two men show'. However, our 8 weeks
long operating plan, working from 3 different rare countries, makes it
very expensive. We will cover the flight tickets, accommodations and
other personal expenses. The excess baggage fees and the transfer to
Banaba are extremely expensive. Thus we are seeking support from DX
Foundations and Organization to help us to cover the extremely high
transfer expenses to Banaba and the excess baggage fees. Personal con-
tributions are also welcome." For more details and updates, visit:
