To celebrate the 90th anniversary of IARU several countries have special event stations running to the end of the year. Contacts with these stations go towards a diploma celebrating this IARU milestone where you need to contact 10 special IARU call signs before the end of the year. The Radio Club of Haiti will be using HH90IARU and the QSL manager is W3HNK. Members of the Malta Amateur Radio League are using 9H90IARU and their QSL manager is 9H1SP. EV90IARU is on the air from Belarus and you should QSL direct via EW1I. The Mongolian national society is putting JT90IARU on the air and you should QSL via JT1KAA. Finally, UP90IARU is on the air from Kazakhstan with RW6HS acting as QSL manager.

The reports from the RSGB Spectrum Forum meeting held on 7 November have been released. They cover the HF, VHF and microwave spectrum, the Amateur Radio Observation Service, propagation, contests, ETCC and national special interest groups such as GQRP.
