difficulties.  Al, WA3YVN, of South Georgia fame, joins the team to
resolve the transportation problem.  He may go with the rest to
SPRATLY ISLAND, DU0K.  This DXpedition was cancelled at the request
of the Philippine military.

8.  Activity will be on all HF bands with CW and SSB.  QSL via CBA.

prefix PI45, more quarry for prefix hunters.
CORRECTIONS.  In last week's bulletin, Jim, AD1C, was credited with
the news item on the pirate signing XU7VK and XU95HA.  The correct
news source was Dave, TI5RLI.  Sorry Jim, thanks Dave.
Tom, AL7EL, reports having inadvertently supplied the wrong dates
for his upcoming DXpedition to Wake Island.  The correct dates are
May 17 to 24.  Thanks Tom.
