  REALTIME BAND CONDITIONS WEB SITE :
  The purpose of this experimental Web site is to provide 24-7-365 actual
  (REALTIME) band condition information to CW QRPp, QRPe and CW/SSB for
  Contesters interested in increasing their scores. It can also be of
  benefit to other Radio Amateurs to determine band conditions for Nets
  and casual QSO's. This information is NOT based on any software pre-
  dictions or any kind of satellite based readings. It is based on a
  new Ionospheric sounding method called "HF Ionospheric Interferometry"
  which operates very similarly to the PolSAR system used by NASA.

  contest, etc..) and you are busy, contact me. I can help you to send
  them." He also states, [edited] "I offer free of all costs of printing
  and delivery of QSLs direct and the Bureau, envelopes, labels, etc. I
  will pay all, at no cost to them. Yes, you are reading it right, NO
  COST. I just want to get myself a name and reputation as a QSL Manager.
  On the contrary, often it costs me my own money, but I do it with plea-

VK0EK VIDEO (Short Cape Town to Heard Island Video from Bill, AE0EE).
Bill, AE0EE, has created a video which encompasses the voyage of the
Braveheart from Cape Town through the landing on Heard Island. In it,
not only is there the rolling of the sea, but the deployment of two
types of scientific buoys. First up is an ARGO diving buoy, followed
by a NOAA drift buoy. The birds seen as the ship arrives at Atlas Cove
are the endemic Heard Island cormorants. Upon reaching the island, the
team was greeted by king penguins. The 2:35 minute video can be viewed
