ARRL NEWS ---> Several organizational changes at ARRL Headquarters became
effective on 22 January. A new department, tentatively called the Programs
and Services Department, will combine most functions of the former Membership
Services Department and Field and Educational Services. Dave Patton (NN1N)
has been named manager of the combined department, and Norm Fusaro (W3IZ)
will become assistant manager of the combined units.

DENMARK ---> The Danish IT and Telecom Agency has opened the possibility to
apply for new prefix block callsigns. They should start being issued by
mid-March, so don't be caught unawares if you hear OU, OV, 5P and 5Q stations
from Denmark, as well as XP callsigns from Greenland and OW callsigns from
the Faroe Islands.

DXCC HONOR ROLL ---> The deadline to be shown in the next DXCC Honor Roll
listing is 31 March. Submissions must be postmarked 31 March 2007 for your
submission to count for this listing. The DXCC Honor Roll list will appear in
August 2007 QST. There are 337 entities on the DXCC list and you must be
within the numerical top 10 DXCC entities to qualify. The current minimum
requirement for Honor Roll is 328 current entities (deleted entities do not
count towards this level). [TNX NC1L]

LU2ERA/Z ---> Henry (LU4DXU) says that he saw that Hugo was at the Orcadas
Base in the South Orkney Islands, he suggested him to operate on the amateur
radio bands "without knowing that he never went to renew his LU2ERA license
and lost it. This callsign has now been issued to another individual. As soon
I received this information I spoke with him to cancel the operation. All QSL
cards received will be returned to the sender. Mistakes happen and I hope
that Hugo eventually renews his license and is able to activate such rare
Bases in the near future". [TNX NE8Z]

NOT THE MANAGER ---> Graham, M5AAV says that with immediate effect he is no
longer the QSL Manager for G6PZ, GX6PZ and GB6MD.

QSL EU-179 ---> As of 20 January, Alex (UX2IQ) had processed and mailed all
of the direct requests for UT3IB/p, UT9IO/p & UX2IQ/p. Anyone still needing a
card can apply for one either direct with adequate return postage and SAE, or
via the UARL bureau. [TNX UT3IB]

QSL XF4DL ---> The cards for the latest Revillagigedo operation have been
printed in Germany, and the QSL manager for the Americas (N6AWD) is still
waiting for them to arrive. Hopefully he will receive them in the next 2-3
weeks, for the time being please be patient and do not resubmit. [TNX XE2K]

USA DROPS CW ---> The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has modified
the Amateur Radio Service rules and eliminated Morse code exam requirements
for all amateur licence classes. The new rules become effective on 23
February. Full information can be found at http://www.arrl.org/fcc/morse/.
