SOUTH  ORKNEY  ISLANDS  2020 --->  The  Northern  California  DX  Foundation
( has announced it will be  a major contributor  to the
Perseverance DX Group's February-March 2020  DXpedition  to the South Orkney
Islands ( [425DXN 1455]. "With the cost of ships, fuel,
and freight continuing to rise the future of major DXpeditions  rests in the
hands of the  worldwide  DX community",  the PDXG says.  "We appreciate  the
Foundation's generosity and their confidence in our project team and plans".
The primary purpose of NCDXF is to help fund  well-organized DXpeditions  to
rare,  difficult  and  expensive  DXCC  Entities   like  the  South  Orkneys
(currently #16 on Club Log's Most Wanted List). Since 2016,  NCDXF-supported
DXpeditions activated five of the ten  most-needed Entities, and during  the

THE FT4 PROTOCOL FOR DIGITAL CONTESTING ---> The following announcement  was
posted by Joe Taylor, K1JT to the WSJT software development mailing list  on
22 April:
"Soon after the 'FT8 Roundup' held on December 1-2, 2018, we started serious
work on a faster, more contest-friendly digital mode  that can compete  with
RTTY-contesting QSO rates while preserving many of the benefits of FT8.  The
result  is  FT4  -  a  new  digital  mode  specifically  designed  for radio
Over the past month a small group of volunteers have been conducting on-the-
air tests of FT4. The early tests were very successful and helped us to make
a number  of  important  design decisions.  We believe FT4  has considerable
promise for its intended purpose.
We'll  soon  be  ready  for  testing by  a  larger group.  If  you  might be
interested in participating  and offering  your considered feedback,  please
read  the  descriptive  document  "The FT4 Protocol for Digital Contesting",
posted here:
We plan to post downloadable installation packages for  WSJT-X 2.1.0-rc5  on
April 29. The document linked above includes
- Instructions for installing WSJT-X 2.1.0-rc5 and FT4 configuration
- Operating instructions for FT4
- Basic description of the FT4 protocol, modulation, and waveform
- Detailed  sensitivity  measurements  for  FT4  under  a  wide  variety  of
  simulated propagation conditions
- Schedule for upcoming test sessions"

TQSL: NEW VERSION ---> A new version (v2.4.7) of  LoTW's  Trusted QSL (TQSL)
has been released:  This version corrects
a defect in the Windows autoupdate process when performing the download  and
install of a new version.  Because this defect was present  in  TQSL v2.4.4,
v2.4.5  and  v2.4.6 , those  versions  are  unable  to automatically  update
themselves to v2.4.7.  In order to  upgrade, users  with  those versions  of
TQSL installed  must manually download and install  TQSL v2.4.7  from  here:
