The QSL Man is NOT Dead
Wayne, W4MPY, the QSL man has been gravely ill with cancer, but is still alive.
During his illness the QSL business was taken over by a member of the family that is not a ham, but does know graphic arts and was instrumental in helping Wayne with the software he used for creating the variety of QSL cards.
Unfortunately this family member did not do well with the business and things just spiraled out of control until Wayne W4MPY and his XYL Lola N4KAI were forced to close the business. We are aware of the money owed many and are working to full fill our obligation to these loyal customers. Please contact David Carroll W5QDF on this email account and let David see what he can do to resolve things. David W5QDF and his XYL Sonya KF5ZRA are taking care of Wayne and Lola and their doing well.

Posted 3/14/2015 Great News DXers.
Lots of things can change in the next few months but Dom, 3Z9DX, is one that has the greatest possibility of activating North Korea. Start now getting those antennas ready and wish for wonderful propagation. 73, Gary, K4MQG
On February 28th, broke the news that Dom 3Z9DX had written permission to operate amateur radio from a VERY wanted DXCC entity.
Today, we can reveal that entity is North Korea (P5).
Dom 3Z9DX explains he has received a further letter from authorities in Pyongyang inviting him to a final meeting to discuss [and for he to accept] rules by the North Korean military and the relevant telecommunications department.
This meeting will take place in December with activity planned for January or February 2016.
According to P5 telecoms, Dom will be permitted only three bands (20-15-10) likely using a multiband vertical from a secured place in Pyongyang with two government supervisors over-looking 24/7.
Activity will last for 5 days.
At the moment this is a solo expedition to the #1 Most wanted entity using SSB only. He is working hard behind the scenes to get one more op (CW) to join him.
Please realise this project is a work in progress and try to understand that it may only be Dom who operates from P5.
More updates / website throughout 2015.
Any questions via Press Officer, Col MM0NDX.

K1N Interview for MDXC by W0GJ
1- The 1st question is "mandatory" Dott. Glenn: it has been 25 years from the last activity in KP1. This made of Navassa the Most Wanted #1. How did you feel being part of the team?
We have been working on getting permission to operate from Navassa (and Desecheo) since 1998. It has been a very long and difficult road working to get permission from the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service who has jurisdiction over these entities. Read more here.

New QSL Bureau Web Page
The W4-K4-N4 QSL Bureau is launching a new web page. Click on the "W4QSL Bureau" tab (above) to access the Bureau's new web page. Please note the large box with the blue background entitled "Your W4-K4-N4 Card Status Check". Read what it says and then click on the word "sorter" within that box or scroll to the bottom of the page to see if your card sorter is participating in this new program. A hash tag (#) next to your letter indicates that your data is on line.

As this this the F, I, K, N, O, V and Z letter suffixes are now on line. Putting this data on line is considerable extra work for our letter sorters. As such, their participation is voluntary and I ask your understanding if your letter sorter chooses not to participate.

Give a big "Thank You" to Dick, W3OA and Wayne, WB4BXW for developing this program for us.
73 to all,
Paul Sturpe, W3GQ
QSL Bureau Mgr for W4, K4, N4 Prefixes
