4W     - Alan, VK1AO (VK2MET) will be active as  4W/VK1AO  from  Timor Leste
         between  25 July and 4 August,  and again  "at least two more times
         over the next three years".  He plans to be QRV  on 40, 30, 20, 17,
         15 and 12  metres SSB, FT8, JS8  and maybe some CW,  and to operate
         from a couple of POTA parks. He will upload his log to Club Log and
         LoTW. [TNX The Daily DX]
C6A    - Joe, W8GEX and Janet, W8CAA  will be active  as  C6ADX  and  C6AYL,
         respectively,  from  Exuma Island (NA-001),  Bahamas  for  ten days
         starting on 16 July.  They will operate mainly FT8 on  60-6 metres.
         QSL via LoTW, or direct to home calls. [TNX The Daily DX]
CT8    - Jim, W6PQL will be active as  CT8/W6PQL from  Pico Island (EU-175),
         Azores from  14 July  to  6 September. He will operate SSB and FT8,
         and will be QRV around 14240 kHz at nighttime, and around 7140-7180
         kHz in the mornings.  Between 18 July and 1 September he will oper-
         ate  2m EME and tropo. QSL via LoTW, or direct to home call.
CY0    - Originally scheduled  to take place  sometime  between October  and
         November 2022, the CY0S DXpedition to  Sable Island  has been post-
         poned until  20-29  March 2023.  "The reason  for this  significant
         change is due to a large,  six-week project Parks Canada has on the
         island  beginning on October 1  and going to at least  mid-November
         2022", the team says. "By moving the DXpedition to March 2023,  the
         team hopes to take advantage of the late winter,  early spring band
         conditions  and improving  solar numbers.  On a less positive note,
         Sable Aviation  informed us  of  another increase  in the fuel sur-
         charge  for our flights  to the island.  The fuel surcharge has now
         doubled". If you are willing to contribute, please use the "Donate"
         button on www.cy0s.com.

425 DX NEWS MAGAZINE ---> The  June 2022 issue is available for download  at
https://www.425dxn.org/. [TNX IZ3EBA]

INDEXA NEWSLETTER ---> The  Summer 2022 issue (#136) of the International DX
Association's Newsletter is now available for download on the INDEXA website
(https://indexa.org/newsletters.html).  Highlights  include  "A  Tribute  to
Franz Langner,  DJ9ZB (SK)",  "Tips and Techniques to Enhance Your Operating
and DX Skills", and news of the 3Y0J Bouvet and CY0S Sable DXpeditions.

SAC 2022: CANCELLED ---> The SAC Contest Committee  (Morten Kvernmoen LB8DC,
Martti Laine OH2BH, Ingemar Fogelberg SM5AJV and Henning Andresen OZ2I)  has
unanimously decided to cancel this year's two sections of the Contest, which
were due  to be held on  17-18 September (CW)  and  8-9 October (SSB).  "Our
decision has been made due to the ongoing war in the region and in consider-
ation of the IARU declaration about friendship between people.  We hope that
the situation will change for the better,  so that we can once again compete
against each other as the SAC rules dictate".
On 28 February, "in response to recent world events", the International Ama-
teur Radio Union stated that  "IARU is an apolitical organization focused on
promoting and defending amateur radio  and  the amateur radio services.  The
amateur radio  service  is  about  self-instruction  in  communications  and
friendship between people".

YASME EXCELLENCE AWARD ---> Established  in  2008  by  the  Yasme Foundation
(https://www.yasme.org/), the Excellence Award  is presented to  individuals
and groups who, through their own service, creativity, effort and dedication
have made a significant contribution to amateur radio.  The contribution may
be in recognition of technical, operating or organizational achievement,  as
all three are necessary for  amateur radio to grow and  prosper.  The latest
recipients, announced on 10 July, are:
* Parks On The Air (POTA) Team - Since the program's inception, it has grown
  enormously  and now has more than  6500 "activators"  who operate from the
  parks and more than 20,000 "hunters" who work them. The core team consists
  of Jason Johnston W3AAX, Rick Parent W0ZAP, Colby Dillion WR5B,  Thom Mar-
  tin W8TAM, Julie Martin WT8J, Vance Martin N3VEM, Mike Case W8MSC,  Jeremy
  Turner N0AW,  Martin  Moerman PA0KGB,  John  Ford AB0O,  Steve  Czaikowski
  W3SPC.  Next to DXCC  and  IOTA,  POTA has become  one of the  most active
  worldwide operating award programs.  Even more important, though,  is that
  more hams are  On The Air,  especially hams with  modest stations  or  who
  cannot get OTA  from home for whatever reason.  POTA is making it possible
  for them to have a great deal of fun, be active on HF/VHF/satellites,  and
  learn about radio.
* Jan Stadman, DJ5AN/PA1TT - In recognition  of his efforts  organizing  ham
  radio events.  For many years, Jan organized the  Dutch HF Convention  and
  the annual  European DX Foundation  meeting in Bad Bentheim, Germany.  Jan
  also runs the EUDXF booth at  Ham Radio in Friedrichshafen.  Together with
  other DX associations  he invented and shaped the  "DX Plaza"  that is now
  the central  meeting point for  DXers present in Friedrichshafen.  In 2017
  Jan  joined the  organizing committee  of the  Dutch German Radio  Amateur
  Meeting DNAT and took over as committee chair in 2020,  just before COVID.
  The pandemic didn't stop him  and  even with the restriction that  were in
  place he was able to organize several events.

YASME FOUNDATION GRANT ---> The Board of Directors  of the  Yasme Foundation
has announced that it has made grants to  Amateurs Radio Algeriens  and  the
Ethiopian Amateur Radio Society to attend YOTA Summer Camp Croatia 2022, the
Foundation for  Amateur Radio (FAR)  and  the  ARRL  Foundation  Scholarship
Program. [TNX K4ZW]

YOTA CONTEST 2022 ---> The second session of this year's YOTA Contest, orga-
nized by the IARU R1 Youth Working Group in cooperation with the   Hungarian
Amateur Radio Society (MRASZ), will take place on 23 July (1000-2159 UTC) on
the five classic bands CW and SSB. Everyone can work everyone.  The complete
rules can be found on https://ham-yota.com/contest.
