    3D2/R, ROTUMA (Terrible/Tragic News from Rotuma). The following has been
    reported from several sources. Antoine, 3D2AG, who has been active from
    Rotuma since December 21st, has reported that his 11 year old son (eldest)
    drowned on January 9th. His son accompanied him on his latest trip to
    Rotuma. They found his body early in the morning in the deep sea. His
    burial was expected to be on the 11th, and all 3D2AG/p operations are
    now QRT. OPDX and its readers send out our deepest sympathy to Antoine
    and his family.

    3V, TUNISIA (Tunisia issues personal licenses to operate). The IARU (Inter-
    national Amateur Radio Union) Web page reports on January 7th: "The first
    three 'Authorizations to Operate' have been issued to 3 Tunisian amateurs.
    These are the first issued since 1956. 3V8HB, 3V8MN and 3V1MB will soon be
    on the air from their homes rather than being restricted to operating from
    a club station. Issuing individual authorizations to operate is a new pro-
    cess in Tunisia and involves a number of stages, including equipment con-
    formity checks. This is great news for Tunisians that the process now
    exists so that radio amateurs can practice their hobby from homes in full
    compliance with the Tunisian Laws. The IARU Member Society ARAT extends
    its thanks to the National Agency of Frequencies, the Ministry of Tele-
    communications and all involved parties for making this happen."

    DL35, GERMANY (Special Event). The DARC honors 35 years of SDR-technology
    with special callsign and special-DOK. In order to acknowledge the high
    importance of digital signal processing for communications technology in
    general and amateur radio in particular, a special event station "DL35SDR"
    will be active from the greater Munich area throughout the year 2020. The
    Special-DOK "35SDR" was issued for this station.
    Today, digital signal processing via Software Defined Radio (SDR) is the
    generally accepted standard for decoding and generating of radio signals.
    Commercial services have been using this technology for a long time and
    nowadays amateur radio is not imaginable without SDR.
    Prof. Dr.- Ing. habil. Ulrich L. Rohde, DJ2LR / N1UL, was the first
    describing the possibilities and perspectives of SDR in a congress lecture
    at the "Third International Conference on HF Communication Systems and
    Techniques" in London in February 1985 (classified). The title was: "A
    Sampling of Techniques".
    DJ2LR / N1UL, member of DARC Amateur Radio Club Munich South (C18) is
    recognized as one of the pioneers of SDR technology 35 years ago.

    *** (Update January 9th) SOLAR CYCLE 25 CONTINUES TO INTENSIFY: A
    sunspot has emerged in the sun's northern hemisphere, see here:
    https://www.spaceweather.com/images2020/09jan20/f_HMI_cont_aiascale.jpg
    Its magnetic polarity identifies it as a member of new Solar Cycle 25.
    This is the second Solar Cycle 25 sunspot we've seen this month, con-
    tinuing a trend of low but intensifying Cycle 25 activity. The next
    solar cycle is coming, after all. Sun spot is in the mid upper right
    edge of the Sun. Small as it comes into view.
