Presented annually, the Cass Award encourages DXpeditions to maximize the number of DXers worked with a $1000 prize for the Single-Operator DXpedition that works the most unique callsigns over a two-week interval. This award honors the wisdom and spirit of Cass WA6AUD (SK), whose stories in the West Coast DX Bulletin taught a generation of DXers that DX IS!
Congratulations to Nigel, G3TXF, on his achievement in winning this year's award. If you're interested in competing for or contributing to the 2015 Cass Award, visit http://www.cassaward.com.

IOTA NEWS
AS-172. Members of the Russian Robinson Club (RRC), Vasily/R7AL and Vasily/R6AL, will be active as R7AL/0 from Malminskiye Islands (RRA RR-13-11), (which is a very rare island group located in the Sea of Okhotsk, and claimed only by 8.3% of IOTA partici- pants) for 3 days sometime between August 8-16th. These Rocks are located far away from civilization, the nearest and only one settlement is Ayan, 40 Km. away from the Rocks. Since there is no vessel available, the only way to land on the Rocks is by a small fishing motorboat. It will take two trips (80 Km) to deliver all the equipment and operators to the island. Flights to Ayan are not regular and depends on weather conditions (heavy fogs almost 6 days a week), but if the weather is unfavorable, they state that the operators will wait as long as they can.
Their plans are for a 500 watts station into a VDA and Vertical antennas. Since this is an IOTA expedition, focus will be on 2 bands only. They voted for 20 and 17 meters, but it's not confirmed yet and a subject for discussion. Modes will be CW and SSB only. QSL via the OQRS on ClubLog for both direct and Bureau cards. Direct QSL are via R6AL with SAE and 2 USDs. Any NEWS/UPDATES will be published on their Web site which is still under construction at:

EU-008. Members of the Camb-Hams will once again be active as GS3PYE/P from the Isle of Mull between May 15-22nd.

Ten operators will be active on all bands and many modes from 4m to 80m, 2m & 70cm for Satellites and 2m & 23cm for EME. The HF bands will be covered by four simultaneous stations, while the 6m & 4m stations will have a great take-off towards the UK and Europe from the island's eastern edge in IO76EJ square. All stations will be able to run at the full UK power limit. EME operations will use 150W to 55 elements on 23cm and 400W to 17 elements on 2m, primarily on JT65 but also available for CW skeds - if your station is big enough. Satellite operations on 2m & 70cm will use X-Quad anten- nas and a fully automatic Az/El tracking system. Activity is planned on AO-7 (mode B), VO-52, FO-29, SO-50 & AO-73.
All the up-to-date plans and progress will be on dx.camb-hams.com.

REALTIME BAND CONDITIONS WEB SITE http://www.bandconditions.com:
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.


PS70, BRAZIL (Special Event)
Rony, PS7AB, will activate special event station PS70FEB between April 1-30th. Activity is to celebrate the 70th anniversary of World War II and to remember the importance of PEACE. The special callsign is also in honor to all who participated in the war, especially the Brazilian Expeditionary Force - FEB, on the battlefields in Italy. Operations will be on 40/20/17/15/10 meters using SSB and CW/ Digital.
QSL via PS7AB, direct (2 USDs), by the Bureau, eQSL or LoTW. A special certificate will be sent in 2016 via E-mail to stations who made contacts with at least 10 Special Event Stations by mode (SSB, CW or Digital), or mixed (3 modes). Each month in 2015, Ronaldo will activate a different callsign and also send 12 different QSLs. PS70FEB is the fourth special event station to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II in 2015. For more details, see:
