A92 - Bahrain - 3.26.11
"Due to the deteriorating situation within the Kingdom of Bahrain", Dave (A92IO/ EI3IO) says, "it is becoming incresingly difficult to travel within the country. Therefore please do not send QSL requests to my Bahrain address (PO Box 31183) until further notice. Also please do not send to Ireland for the time being. At present all QSOs are confirmed by ARRL's Logbook of the World for DXCC and by eQSL for WAZ etc. Sending QSLs via EI3IO through the bureau system (not via the A9 bureau) is also OK".

VP8 - Antartica - 3.27.11
I am THRILLED to announce that VP8DMH is finally QRV and has a GREAT signal tonight! I completed with him at 0202Z on March 19, 2011 when his antenna was elevated and the moon was over 18 degrees high over his mountains. His 73 peaked -20 dB in the speaker here on JT65A mode. Mike was my 6m DXCC #165 (#114 via 6m EME). He also worked W1JJ, K2ZD, W7MEM and is still going strong working people as I write this. Degradation is -1.1 and Kp is 0.7 ... 6m EME CNDX this weekend simply could not be any better ;-) Mike is using a K3 with PR6 preamp M2 6M8GJ yagi (with manual aiming in az and el), and an ACOM 1000 amp is email is good on QRZ.com and he is on the ON4KST EME chat when QRV PSE QSL via G0VGS and send any contributions for the 6M8GJ yagi to G8BCG, who paid for the antenna and shipping himself.
