IDXC 2023 ---> Hotel reservations are now open for the 74th International DX
Convention, co-sponsored by the  Northern California DX Club (NCDXC) and the
Central Arizona DX Association (CADXA), to be held at the Visalia Conference
Center on 21-23 April 2023.  See https://www.dxconvention.com/  for complete

QSL ZC4RH ---> Philipp, DK6SP is the new QSL manager for the  5-16 June 2022
operation by Dave, ZC4RH (G4WXJ). Bureau cards will be sent out automatical-
ly  and  the log will be uploaded to LoTW  soon after the operation is over;
direct cards should be requested ia Club Log's OQRS. The two are "working to
digitalize  old paper logs  and bring them online  on  Club Log and LoTW  as
well. Though, this process will take time".

RBN ---> The Reverse Beacon Network  launched  their updated  website on  16
June: https://reversebeacon.net/main.php. A full explanation of the new fea-
tures is available under "About > Guide to the New Site".
The Reverse Beacon Network a network of stations listening to the bands  and
reporting  what stations they hear,  when  and  how well.  You can see  band
openings in near-real time on  an animated map.  The database of  past spots
allows you  to instantly find out  what stations,  from a  given country  or
zone, have been heard,  at what times and  on what frequencies.  You can see
when you have been spotted, who spotted you, and how loud you were.
And now, for the first time, you can compare your signal  with those of your
friends and competitors, in  near real time  or historically.  If you wonder
how your signal stacked up during  last weekend's contests, the  Signal Com-
parison Tool will give you real,  quantitative data.  Tell it  what stations
you want to compare,  based on signals  heard by a given reverse beacon on a
certain band at a certain time, and there you'll have it.

T33T --- > After their  recent  3D2RRR operation  from Rotuma, the  Rebel DX
Group's "next step" will be T33T from Banaba (OC-018), "before we go down to
South Africa  by  end of the year to start second attempt for Bouvet".  They
are  working  "closely with Kiribati government  to get  special  permit  to
enter the country  as  they  are still  closed  for non  citizens". Bookmark

WRTC 2022 ---> The  Organizing  Committee  of   the  World  Radiosport  Team
Championship 2022  to be held next year in Italy  has opened the application
process  for qualified  individuals who would like  to serve as referees.  A
referee  will be  on site  at each of the  65 competing  stations  to verify
compliance  with the rules and  make decisions on any rule questions  by the
teams.  See  https://www.wrtc2022.it/en/referee-23.asp  for the  application
form. The deadline for submitting  applications is 10 July 2022.
