         since 25 October, and will go QRT around 4 UTC on 9 November.  This
         is one day earlier than planned, as "the warm and humid climate  is
         a challenge for  central Europeans", and  they will need  more time
         than expected to dismantle the antenna system.
P4     - Jaap, PA7DA will be active holiday style as  P40DA  from Aruba (SA-
         036) on  14-27 November. He will operate FT8 and FT4, "but also SSB
         and CW" on 80-10 metres. QSL via home call, direct or via the Dutch
         QSL bureau. He does not use Club Log or LoTW. [TNX The Daily DX]
PY     - Celebrating the  22nd edition of the  FIFA World Cup  to be held in
         Qatar, the Liga de Amadores Brasileiros de Radio Emissao's HQ  will
         be operating special callsign PV22CUP from 19 November to 18 Decem-

         tionale de Football Association.
T33    - Team T33T expects to leave Tarawa (T30)  on 5 November.  The voyage
         will take a couple of days, and they hope to be QRV from Banaba  on
         7 or 8 November for about ten days.  Three operators will be active
         on 160-6m. FT8 operations will always be Fox and Hound,  and do not
         be surprised  if you see two signals  on the same band  (e.g. 14074
         and 14090 kHz,  or 18100 and 18095 KhZ)  at the same time.  QSL via
         Club Log’s OQRS (direct only);  LoTW confirmations  will be made on
         the same day requests for QSLs  are submitted via Club Log.  Book-
         mark https://www.facebook.com/rebeldxgroup for updates.
T8     - Upon arrival in Palau  on  1 November,  team T88WA  discovered that
         their  primary operating site had an  "intractable S9 noise  across
         all bands coming from underground cable and telephone wires running
         all  along the island  under  the power poles".  They surveyed  six
         other locations, found two that could potentially work and  finally
         were given permission "to rent some state owned land  in far north-
         ern Palau" (WWL PJ77hr).  They moved all of their equipment to  the
         new site, and  finally  T88WA was QRV  with the first station  on 4
         November  around  12.15 UTC.  The team  reports  that they are  not
         completely noise free, though, as they have  "a big batch of inter-
         ference from 3.550 to 3.800. We'll continue to work to resolve, but
         may have to dodge it on 80m". QSL via M0URX, direct  or  preferably
         through his OQRS (https://www.m0urx.com/oqrs/). See qrz.com's entry
         for T88WA for band plan and QSLling policy.
VP5    - Mark, WQ7X will be active  again as  VP5/WQ7X  from  Providenciales
         (NA-002), Turks & Caicos on  5-15 November.  He will operate CW and
         SSB on 80-10 metres. [TNX DX World]
ZC4    - Assisted by Chris PA2CHR and Jos PA3FYC, Dave G4WXJ, will be active
         as ZC4RH from the UK Sovereign Base Area of Dhekelia  (WWL KM64ux),
         Cyprus on 10-19 November, with a focus on 144 Mhz, 432 MHz and 1296
         MHz  "EME, Tropo, Meteor Scatter, etc.".  QSL via LoTW,  Club Log's
         OQRS, or via DK6SP.
