REPUBLIC OF SOUTH SUDAN. Co-leader of the ST0R operation Antonio, EA5RM, reports, "As you may know, the distribution of ST0R QSL cards has begun. The Republic of South Sudan was recently added to the DXCC entities list, so each QSO confirmed by our manager will be the confirmation of a new one. The DXCC Desk has expressed the concern that they may be overwhelmed by thousands of applications to credit the new entity. Consequently, we have decided to make an exception, and upload to the LOTW all the individual donor QSOs and OQRS ones, by November 1st."

ARRL EME Contest, NCCC Sprint, MCG Autumn Sprint, FOC CW QSO Party, Araucaria VHF Contest, Microwave Fall Sprint, SYLRA Contest, Stew Perry Topband CW Challenge and the W/VE Islands QSO Party are all on tap for this weekend.
