CQ DX MARATHON ---> The  CQ  DX  Marathon  is  a  year-long  DX  hunt,  with 
participants competing to see who can work the greatest number of  countries 
("entities") and  CQ zones  during the calendar year.  The 2022 edition will 
start at 00.00 UTC on  1 January and  will end at 23.59 UTC on  31 December. 
Complete details can be found at http://www.dxmarathon.com/. 

DX SOUND CLIPS ---> Tom's (K8CX) DX sound clips for 2021  can  be  found  at 
http://hamgallery.com/dx2021/.  The large  collection of clips  (MP3 format) 
covers DXpeditions, rare and semi-rare DX. This makes 24 full years of sound 
clips available. 

KH1, KH3, KH5, KH9 ---> The National Oceanic and  Atmospheric Administration 
(NOAA) and  the  U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS),  as co-leads,  have 
announced  their  intention  to prepare a  Monument Management Plan  for the 
Pacific Remote Islands Marine National  Monument.  The PRIMNM  includes  the 
current DXCC Entities of  Baker & Howland (KH1),  Johnston (KH3),  Palmyra & 
Jarvis (KH5) and Wake (KH9). The "Permit system for allowable public activi- 
ties" is listed among the  "preliminary issues, concerns,  and opportunities 
that may be addressed in the MMP",  and for which NOAA and USFWS are seeking 
comments and input.  The document can be found on the  US Federal Register's 
website  ( https://www.federalregister.gov/,  search for  2021-27535).  Since 
2019, Don Greenbaum (N1DG) has been the appointed Citizen at Large represen- 
tative on the NOAA/USFWS Community Group providing input on drafting the new 
management plan for the PRIMNM. 

QSL 9N1DX ---> "Over the past few days I have manually entered over 1100 new 
QSOs into the  9N1DX logbook  at https://www.m0oxo.com/oqrs/logsearch.php)",
Charles, M0OXO reports.  "The log contains the 6m QSOs made before  she went 
QRT. This upload now completes her full logbook which I have been trying  to 
obtain for the last 6 months".  For the time being  only paper QSL cards are 
available, as "I do not have any documentation from 9N1DX, nor do I have her
written permission which would allow ARRL to supply me with an LoTW certifi- 
cate". 

QSL JW2T ---> Effective immediately,  Pedro, EA5GL has  picked up the direct 
and bureau QSLing for JW2T, operated by  Stian, LB5SH during  the  CQ WW WPX 
SSB Contest 2021 (27-28 March).
