I.C.P.O. Bulletin (17-23 July 2015)

I.C.P.O. Bulletin (17-23 July 2015)
"Islands, Castles & Portable Operations"
Listing is by calendar date (day/month/year)
EDITORS NOTE: The I.C.P.O. information will soon be website based, in a DX Calendar format. Please visit my web site (URL listed below) for the lastest activations. There are many excellent bulletins still available - 425 DX News, Ohio/Penn DX Bulletin (Ted KB8NW), DARC DX Newsletter and The Daily DX by Bernie W3UR, to name a few. With the abundance of online DX websites such as Announced DX Operations by Bill NG3K, ATDX, DxCoffee, DX-World, along with Twitter, there are many sources of DX information.
The time to gather information and edit a bulletin is very time consuming, as you must realize. It is time to hang up my hat and have some time to play radio, instead of writing about it. The I.C.P.O. mailing list will still be available for those who want to post their own information, such as World Castle Award (WCA) info, etc.
I thank all readers for their interest in this bulletin and I appreciate your loyalty. Don't forget - I.C.P.O. will still be available on my website, so please take the time too visit. 73 from Dave, VA3RJ.
