    3D2, FIJI (New Ham). Joanna "JK", 3D2ZK, from Denarau, Nadi, Fiji, posted
    the following on QRZ.com [edited], "I'm very new to the HAM radio family.
    Please be patient when you hear me. I finished Jagielonica Law University
    in Krakow, Poland. I am a living rebel, so I joined forces with Rebel DX
    Group. My plan is to be active from 3D2/C (Conway Reef), 3D2/R (Rotuma
    Island) and several rare IOTAs around Fiji from May 2021 for 3-4 months."
    No QSNs have been reported yet.

    4U1U, UNITED NATIONS. From the FaceBook page of the United Nations Amateur
    Radio Club (4U1UN); they posted on March 9th: To all the stations calling
    but couldn't get through, we apologize. The noise floor at UNHQ is often
    S9, sometimes +10 over. That's the issue of having a vertical 450 feet
    up in the middle of Manhattan!

    8Q, MALDIVES (Update to OPDX.1507). Last week we mentioned that Mats,
    SM6LRR (RM2D), will be active as 8Q7MS from Ukulhas Island, Alif Alif
    Atoll (AS-013), between March 28th and April 10th. Activity will be
    holiday style on mainly 40-15 meters using CW, but with some SSB as
    well. This is a NON-FT8/FT4 expedition! QSL via EA5GL, as well as LoTW.

    A25, BOTSWANA. A small Russian team will be active as A25RU from Botswana
    near Gaborone between March 15-28th. Operators mentioned are Vasily/R7AL,
    Leo/UI8J, Vlad/R9LR and Mike/RU3UR. Activity will be on various HF bands
    (160-10m; NO 60m) and QO-100 SAT (depends on propagation) with the priority
    to most distant regions (NA and ASIA), using CW, SSB and FT8 (F/H) modes
    during 12 days. They will have 3 stations with amps on the air. QSL via
    R7AL, ClubLog's OQRS, direct, by the Bureau or LoTW. For more details
    and updates, see: https://rv6ali.wixsite.com/botswana2021

    CN21, MOROCCO (Special Event). Look for special event station CN21JIF
    to be active between March 19-21st. Activity is to celebrate the United
    Nations International Day of Forests, on March 21st. QSL via RW6HS.

    DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME (DST). Did you remember to change your clocks?
    Countries in the Northern Hemisphere (most of N. American and some of
    the Caribbean) who observe Daylight Saving Time should change their
    clocks on Sunday, March 14th at 2:00 AM, and should move their "local
    clocks" forward 1 hour to 3:00:00 AM local time. Daylight Saving Time
    will end on Sunday, November 7th at 2:00 AM. European countries will
    switch to DST on March 28th. For the history and details about DST, as
    well as an interesting map of the world (showing the countries who observe
    DST), see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daylight_saving_time
    http://www.timeanddate.com/time/dst/2021.html
    ADDED NOTES: Hopefully, all amateur radio operators know not to change
    their GMT/UTC/ZULU clocks. However, since most operators usually set their
    computers to local time, some may have to change their settings on "some"
    ham radio software (ex. logging, propagation, DXTelnet, etc..) programs.

    FM, MARTINIQUE (NA-107). Laurent, FM5BH, will be active during the CQWW
    IWPX SSB Contest (March 27-28th) as a Single-Op/All-Band/High-Power entry.
    QSL via W3HNK or LoTW. PLEASE no dupes. Checkout the FM5BH Contest Station
    (Rental) on the Web at: http://www.fm5bh.com

    GB0, ENGLAND (Special Event). Members of the Welland Valley ARS will be
    activating several stations on air during 2021 to celebrate the Patron
    Saints of England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. (See OPDX.1503) This
    week they will celebrate St. Patrick's Day (March 17th) with the call-
    sign GB0SP between March 16-18th. QSL via G4XEX.

    GB100, WALES. John, MW1CFN, will be active as GB1004FTS from Anglesey
    Island (EU-005), island off the mainland's northwest coast, between March
    25th and April 8th. Operations will be on various HF bands including 6
    and 2 meters using SSB and the Digital modes. Activity is to celebrate
    the 100th anniversary of the Royal Air Force's No. 4 Flying Training
    School which opened up on April 1st, 1921. QSL via MW1CFN direct.

    H7, NICARAGUA. Myron, KN6GHM, will be active as H7/KN6GHM from Guana-
    castillo during the CQWW WPX SSB Contest (March 27-28th). QSL via his

    ** Thanks to the individuals who put the island/group and mode
    on their QSNs on their PacketCluster reports. The format we
    suggest is "IOTA#/Mode/Island or Group" (ex. OC-146/FT8/Celebes).

    AS-081. Sungki, HL1IWD, will be active as HL1IWD/5 from Koje Island
    between April 2-4th. Activity will be holiday style and during

    AS-152. (Reminder) Members of the Arctic Legends Team (RT9K), are
    expected to be active as RI0Q from Bolshoj Begichev Island
    soon (possibly March 17th). The team headed to the island on

    Their goal is to aim for Europe and Australia (for those who
    need them for the DXCC), and others that need the grid or
    island. DJ states, "I know it's not a Rare DX but it is a rare
    Island & grid. Great DxPedition for us Handi-hams and a vacation

    to present the results of the CQ WPX Contest. Thanks to the efforts of
    Tom Morrison, K5TM, we can now display the number of entries over the
    past 10 years from each DX entity in a visual form on a world map. The
    new CQ WPX Activity Map is available at: https://cqwpx.com/maps
    The map shows the number of log entries from each country and each call
    area for USA, Canada, Japan and Russia. The mode and year is selected by
    the drop down menu at the top right of the map. The map color scheme is
    selected just below that. The map legend describes the color code.
    Moving the mouse over a country or clicking on it will show the number
    of entries for that region. Enjoy! And let us know what you think.
