Just received word from Ed, 9M6/N1UR they have crossed the 5,000 QSO mark.

They have been struggling with inter radio interference  keeping them from running 2 phone stations simultaneously.   Ed reports that Europe has some rather nice openings into Spratly.   They will participate in the WPX contest this weekend....

DOCUMENTS PENDING for DXCC

I have recently received several inquiries regarding individuals who sent their 9M6/N1UR to the ARRL for DXCC only to have it rejected because of "Documents Pending" according to the ARRL.

These inquiries have been forwarded to Ed - N1UR for review.  As soon as I have an answer back from Ed, I will respond to those who wrote me and post an answer here as well.

Please check back for further updates.......

In a reply from Ed, the paperwork had been filed many months ago.  The situation is being followed up on and should be corrected soon

There had been some administrative problem and if anyone that submitted their 9M6/N1UR card and did not have it credited, they should re-submit or e-mail Bill Moore - NC1L, DXCC Manager at  dxcc@arrl.org
