Press Release 6 : Mar 20 , 2011
VU4PB was hit by a noticeable pirate operation on 40m CW between 1527z to 1817z on 16th March 2011. This was at a time when our 40m CW station had gone off air at 1527z. All DXers please note that QSOs with VU4PB made during the above period was by a Slim Op. We understand the pain this news will cause and hope you can make QSOs on 40m with the real VU4PB soon.
We would also like to say that three of our key operators have been unable to join us at VU4PB as planned due to health and family issues and we have been working hard to fill the gaps with the operators that we have.
