Bureau OT09 to SP2KFQ.

5H, TANZANIA. Vladimir "Vlad", OK2WX, will be active as 5H3WX from Michamvi
Kae, Zanzibar (AF-032), as of November 10th through December 3rd. Activity
will be on 80-10 meters using CW and SSB, with an IC-7300 into a Spiderbeam
(20-15-10m) and Delta loops for 40 and 80 meters. QSL via HA3JB.

5X, UGANDA. John Paul, KN6NNF, is currently active as 5X3Z from Kubamitwe,
and has been heard on 20/10 meters FT8. According to "The Daily DX", John
Paul can be active on 80-10 meters FT8 using a FTDX5000 into dipoles and
a hexbeam which is not up yet. John Paul is there as a missionary. Also
mentioned by TDDX is that John Paul's son (Jack) is currently waiting
for a Ugandan callsign. QSL 5X3Z via LoTW.

6O, SOMALIA. Ali, EP3CQ, is once again active as 6O1OO from Mogadishu
until sometime during the first week in December. Activity has been on
30 meters FT8/FT4. As always, his activity will be limited to his spare
time because he works for the UN Department of Safety and Security (UNDSS)
in Mogadishu. He informs OPDX that his activity will be on all bands
(depending on the propagation, NO 160m), mostly on 40/30/20 meters FT8,
but also on CW and SSB. Ali suggests to watch for him on after 1800-1900z
until 02400z. His rig is a FT-450D w/100 and 180 watts into a Little Tar-
heel II and SE-360. The 6O1OO station is currently the only active and
licensed Amateur Radio Station in Somalia. Ali mentioned that he will be
leaving for Christmas, but will be back again during the second week of
January. QSL direct to: Ali Solhjoo, Schnackenburgstr. 3, Berlin 12159,
Germany. QSL cards will be replied on a bi-monthly basis. IRC's are not
accepted. Ali is also looking for some kind of support to help update
his equipment. For updates, it is suggested to watch QRZ.com or Twitter
(https://twitter.com/EP3CQ).

9N, NEPAL (Update). Robert, S53R/9N7AA, posted the following on QRZ.com,
November 9th [edited]: "9N7AA license has been issued and limited oper-
ation will start soon. Equipment from my previous operation is still
stuck in Kabul and we are trying hard to bring it to Kathmandu.
  I have brought two TS590SG radios and a few basic accessories in my
suitcases. A small multiband vertical has been installed temporarily
until I move to my permanent residence, where Ultra Beam/WIMO 2 element
Yagi (40-6m) will be installed at 25m+. Will still have to figure out
160/80m due to very limited space. Note that 60m band is not permitted
in Nepal. Our new residence is a high rise with a clear shot towards EU
and US. The problem in very heavy QRM, due to messy power lines and all
kinds of man-made interference, is a serious problem in densely populated
Kathmandu."
  Robert also announced that he will be in the CQWW DX CW Contest (Novem-
ber 27-28th) as a Single-Op/All-Band (40/20/15/10m only) entry. QSL goes
via S57DX, direct only, and of course, LoTW and ClubLog will be updated
at least once a week. OQRS will also be enabled soon.
  Please note that 9N7AA was previously issued to Andy, UA3AA. QSL for
Andy's operation in March-April 2014 goes via Andy Gromov, PO Box 873,
Brooklyn, NY 11230, USA.

C9, MOZAMBIQUE. YL Elvira, IV3FSG, will once again be active as C92R from
Mozambique between now and November 30th. Usually, her activity will be
limited to her spare time on 80-10 meters using SSB, RTTY and PSK31. She
will probably be there working on a project for the Informatici Senza
Frontiere ONLUS. She will be looking for some financial support (see
QRZ.com). QSL via IK2DUW, direct, by the Bureau or ClubLog.

D6, COMOROS. Don, N6ZO, will once again be active as D60AB from Comoros
Islands (AF-007) between November 22-29th. Activity will be on various
HF bands using CW and SSB. He will also participate in the CQWW DX CW
Contest (November 27-28th). QSL via his home callsign.

DT8, SOUTH SHETLAND ISLANDS. Lee, DS4NMJ, part of a scientific team,
continues to be very active from the King Se-Jong Korean Antarctic Base
on King George Island (AN-010), South Shetlands (VP8/SH), as DT8A until
December 31st. Activity will be on various HF bands using CW, SSB and
FT8, with 100 watts. He has been heard on 80/40/20 meters using mainly
FT8 (F/H) at various times, also on CW. QSL via DS5TOS.

usually holiday style, QRP on various HF bands and some VHF Digimodes
using CW and SSB with a Yaesu FT817. QSL via his home callsign.

be active from the three royal cities of Bobovac, Visoko and Jajce, to
celebrate the "Statehood Day of Bosnia and Herzegovina[BiH]" (November
25th), between November 14-28th. Activity will be on 160-10 meters using
CW, SSB and FT8. QSL via E73Y. A special "ROYAL CITIES OF BIH" diploma
will be available, see (https://www.qrz.com/db/E7BOSNIA) for more details.

FH, MAYOTTE. Don, K6ZO, will be active as FH/K6ZO from Mayotte Islands
(AF-027) between November 15-22nd. Activity will be on various HF bands,
using CW and SSB. QSL via K6ZO.

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

  AS-041.  Operators Hiromi/JA4DND and Harumi/JR4OZR are currently active

  NEW QSL ROUTE. Pdero, EA5GL, reports, that he has obtained the XR2T
  logs (DXpedition to SA-086 in 2014). If someone still needs the QSL,
  they can request a QSL card through him.

  QSLS RECEIVED VIA THE BUREAU: NONE REPORTED THIS WEEK!!!!!!
    --- We would like to see more QSL Bureaus (such as AS/US/SA/AF.. etc)
        send in their info....

TF, ICELAND. Gudmi, TF3SG, will be active during the CQWW DX CW Contest
(November 27-28th) as a Single-Op/All-Band entry. QSL via LoTW.

TG, GUATEMALA. Dwight, VE7BV, will be active as TG9BBV from Antigua,
Sacatep=E9quez, Guatemala, starting November 14th for two weeks. Activity
will be on 40-10 meters using mainly CW with a little SSB and FT8. QSL
via VE7BV, direct, by the Bureau or LoTW.

TK, CORSICA. Look for "Team Charlie" (S5 Team) to be active again as TK0C
from Sant Ambroggio, Corsica, during the CQWW DX CW Contest (November
27-28th) as a Multi-Single entry. QSL via S50C, direct, eQSL and LoTW.
The list of operators was not provided. For details and updates, watch:
                   https://www.facebook.com/TK0CHARLIE

TL, CENTRAL AFRICAN REPUBLIC. Ken, LA7GIA, who is active as TL7M (mainly
on CW and FT8) and TL8AO (on SSB; his old callsign) from Bangui, was
expected to go QRT on Friday the 12th. However, Ken reports that he and 4
other tourists were denied boarding the Air France flight to Paris due to
a new unknown PCR requirements and would have to disembark in TJ (Cameroon)=
.
Even people from Ministry were denied boarding. The next flight out is
Monday 15th as originally scheduled. So activity continues until Monday,
the 15th in a limited capacity. QSL via M0OXO direct only. NO Bureau cards.

VP8, ANTARCTICA. For the third year, Sebastian, SQ1SGB, will be active
as VP8/SQ1SGB from the British Antarctic Research Base Station (WAP
GBR-40) starting around November 18th, and until January 31st. On QRZ.com,
he states that he will "build rhombic antenna for aircraft communication
(40m) so I will use that antenna for my ham radio activity." He also=20
suggests to watch for him on 40m (7190 kHz) and 20m. QSL via EB7DX.

VU, INDIA (Update to OPDX.1539). Abie, AB1F, is back on the air again as
VU2ABE as of November 13th, and after some hiccups with getting the HB9CV
atop of the tower. He states that he was operational during "the first day
of the JIDX contest. Conditions were very poor and even contacts between
Asian stations were difficult. It may be difficult to make a Stateside
QSO with 100 watts." Remember, Abie is expected to be there until December
18th. Activity will be on 40/20/15/10 meters, depending on propagation.
QSL via AB1F direct, LoTW, eQSL or ClubLog. QSL by the Bureau to AB1F.

ZF, CAYMAN ISLANDS. Stan, K5GO, is once again active as ZF9CW from Cayman
Brac (NA-016) until March 24th. Activity will be on 160-10 meters using
mainly CW and some SSB (no Digital). He also plans to be in several con-
tests signing ZF5T. Look for him to be in the CQWW DX CW Contest (November
27-28th) as a Single-Op/All-Band/High-Power/Assisted entry. QSL via K5GO
direct or LoTW.
