*** SPECIAL NOTE FROM EDITOR: There is a "strong possibility" that there
    "may not" be a bulletin next week. This all depends on how I feel
    after my knee surgery on Thursday, July 8th. Your editor is having
    a torn meniscus (anterior) repaired. Please continue to send your
    DX info and hopefully, recovery will not be too bad.

WRTC NEWS................................
  PRESS RELEASE # 22 (Awards and prizes for HAM radio community world-
  wide):" To encourage the HAM radio community worldwide to make contacts
  with WRTC-2010 participants during the IARU HF Championship Contest the
  weekend of July 10-11th, 2010, we would like to announce our special
  awards and prizes program.
    WRTC-2010 awards, special plaques, T-shirts and trophies will be
    issued based upon the following rules:
      1. QSO points - All WRTC stations will use distinctive callsigns
         from the block R30A-R39Z. The same WRTC-2010 station may be
         worked once on CW and once on SSB on each band (80, 40, 20, 15
         and 10m). The WRTC stations will not operate on 160m.
         - Each confirmed two-way CW or SSB QSO with a WRTC-2010 station
           counts 1 point.

      2. The logs - The WRTC Committee needs as many IARU contest logs
         as possible to create the QSO data base it will use to cross
         check the WRTC competitors' logs. We ask all stations working
         the IARU contest to please send copies of their electronic,
         Cabrillo formatted logs to or upload them to
         <> no later than 18:00 UTC on
         Sunday, July 11, 2010, (Note: this is only six hours after the
         end of the contest). The subject field should contain your
         contest callsign, e.g., "Subject: RA5AA".
           The Committee guarantees that these logs will be used only to
         determine winners of the WRTC awards and prizes and for cross
         checking the WRTC-2010 teams' logs. Please understand that sending
         us a copy of your log does NOT constitute a log submission for
         the IARU HF Championship; for that, you should also e-mail your
         log to

   to boot. Pertti may do both modes just to be more visible and make a
   serious effort even on 10m. QSL via OH2TA.

   Iceland, TF4X: Jouko, OH1RX, together with Thor, TF4M, will put Thor's
   lineup of rhombics on with an eye and ear to Moscow alongside their
   salmon fishing. TF, OX and OH0 are a rare catch on the low bands as
   they stay in total daylight at this time of year. QSL via G3SWH.

   Azores, CQ8X: Francisco, CU2DX, will put Radio Arcala's westernmost
   outpost on SSB on all bands. As he just became a new father, Francisco
   may handle several chores at once. If you call him father Frank, he
   may move more easily. QSL via OH2BH.

   Following the IARU weekend, and sailing out from the port of Reykjavik,
   Iceland, you may catch Martti, OH2BH, and Leena, OH2BE, cruising in
   Greenland waters, zigzagging among the icebergs for a period of eleven
   days. You can follow OH10X/MM, 14235 kHz, en route to the Maritime DX
   Forum in Halifax, Canada <> aboard an
   old-time steamer M/S Kristina Regina on her last journey before retiring
   with fond memories of the 1960's Steamship Era:
