CLUB LOG OQRS - "There has been an update to Club Log which may prove useful to international expedition teams (outside NA) who want to receive OQRS payments in their home currency", Michael G7VJR says. From 23 September 2012, Club Log OQRS has support for US Dollars (USD), GB Pounds (GBP), Euros (EUR), Australian Dollars (AUD) and Japanese Yen (JPY), thus removing the overheads for expeditions who use these currencies. "In future, when you request a card from Club Log, you might be asked to pay in one of the currencies above instead of dollars. Don't forget that PayPal will show you how much you're paying in your own currency before you send funds overseas".

DXCC NEWS - "Congratulations to the team which helped to reintroduce Amateur Radio to Kosovo, and welcome back to the airwaves to the returning Hams. As of this time Z60K, and/or any other Z6 station, will not count for any entity for DXCC awards purposes as they do not qualify under the DXCC rules. Any future change in Kosovo's DXCC status will be announced by ARRL". [TNX NC1L]


Michael Owen, VK3KI passed away on 22 September, at 75 years of age. He was IARU Region 3 Chairman and President of the Wireless Institute of Australia (WIA), and he also served as IARU Vice President from 1989-1999.

Sid T. May, ET3SID, Chairman of the Ethiopian Amateur Radio Society (EARS), passed away on 25 September. An electrical engineer, Sid established the first Ethiopian radio club in 1993. The club station ET3AA was enjoyed by many different elementary schools before it was moved to its current location, the Institute of Technology at the Addis Ababa University. Sid taught Amateur Radio licensing classes in Ethiopia for more than 15 years. He administered RSGB and ARRL license exams sessions, and got more than 120 students pass the examination. Thirty-nine-year-old Maj. Goran Savic, YT2A (YZ1SG) lost his life on 26 September, when a Serbian military aircraft on a training flight crashed into a residential area northwest of Belgrade. If there were no causalities among the residents, it is because he made an effort not to hit buildings until the very last moment before ejecting.
