         F8AB and Fred Schnell, 1MO  (28 November 1923).  Leon Deloy  (1894-

         local charities and philanthropic foundations.

3D2    – Dom, 3Z9DX will be active again as 3D2AJT  from Nadi,  Fiji Islands
         on  23-31 March.  The  callsign  is in memory  of  the  late  Yasuo
         “Zorro” Miyazawa, JH1AJT, who passed away on 23 March 2022. QSL via
         Club Log’s OQRS.

D4     – Timo, OH1NOA will be active holiday style as D4NA  from  Sal Island
         (AF-086), Cape Verde between 30 March and 6 April.  He will operate
         mainly CW and SSB on 40-10m,  with plans to be QRV from a couple of
         World Wide Flora & Fauna sites.  QSL via LoTW, Club Log’s OQRS,  or
         direct to OH1NOA.

FO     – FO/AA7JV went QRT from the Marquesas Islands on 20 March  at  16.10
         UTC. Mike, KN4EEI and George  operated from Anaho Bay, on the north
         side of Nuku Hiva.  They put on the beach  two RIB (Radio In a Box)
         stations and two antennas;  due to software issues  they worked  CW
         and SSB, and only made a handful of FT8 QSOs.  “Low band conditions
         were poor,  made worse  by the  difficult geography  of  the  bay”,
         George says, but “we seemed to have very good signals on  30 and 10
         metres, and good on 40 and 20″.  This was the first operation where
         the RIBs were used in an actual DXpedition.
         The “Magnet”  is now going  to  the  Tuamotu Archipelago  (OC-066),
         French Polynesia,  where  Mike  and George  expect to be QRV  again
         as FO/AA7JV starting around 27 March until around 5 April.  QSL via
         HA7RY and LoTW.

         N7QT, PY2PT, W1SRD, W7XU and ZL3CW) to be QRV as TX5S from 18 Janu-

         2000 (FO0AAA).
         The Perseverance DX Group ( has conducted five
