On behalf of the EUDXF Board I wish you a Merry Christmas and a prosperous and healthy 2015.
Where especially in the dark last days of the years people consider to share with those who are less fortunate I would like to draw your attention to the article written by our lifemember OH2BH.
73, Hans PB2T, EUDXF President

Back in those other years, Albania (ZA) was growing in rarity, and at one time it was the most wanted DXCC country in the world. Travel was restricted and obtaining a license seemed an impossibility. It took just about twenty years of hard work before ZA1A was able to hit the airwaves and to provide the amateur radio community with a new member.
We were honored to give you that opportunity and share the excitement with you together with the locals who soon became part of our brotherhood. Emotions were running high and made me personally adjust some of my values - and see the world differently.
We have returned to Albania many times, continuing with the original charter. Albania is not rare any more but it remains dear in our hearts. Albania has not made the progress we once hoped but many things have moved forward. Now we have decided to travel there once again with all of you on board through World Vision. We still have a dream!
World Vision is the largest international children’s charity, working to bring real hope to millions of children in the world’s hardest places. And they do it all as a sign of God’s unconditional love. World Vision is headquartered in the United States and they have a local presence in Albania.
We have now agreed with World Vision in Finland, the United Kingdom and the United States to step forth and help children in need and travel to Albania again and make a difference. For the first time World Vision is cooperating with Amateur Radio - understanding that we exist for society at large. We call on our own students in ZA to be part of this worthy cause and we will bring you another ZA with a good feeling.
So, just check out http://www.justgiving.com/martti-laine/ and make your donation to World Vision UK who will transfer it to their office in Albania to be used solely for the assigned purpose. Any amount is blessed and highly appreciated. We thank you kindly and Wish You a Merry Christmas and a Peaceful Year 2015.

Through sponsoring this World Vision project in Albania, you are helping protect the rights of children and ensuring they are included as members of society. This program started in 2014, and for the next two years will contribute to the protection of child rights focusing on improving access to basic services for children. It will also work towards ensuring children, parents and adults at all levels of society actively include children in education services.

Today I received a thank you card from the FT4TA Tromelin crew. What a nice gesture!
