Jack, AI4SV, will be moving to Madagascar with his job in late August, and will be resident there for about 3 years. He has obtained the callsign 5R8SV and will be active from Antananarivo. He expects to be operating mainly on CW on the HF bands, but likes to experiment with others modes. QSL via G3SWH, via the OQRS (preferred), direct or via the RSGB Bureau. There is a Web page that will have a log search at:
Logs will be uploaded to LoTW and ClubLog.
Yves, F5PRU is currently located in South Niger and will be active during free time as 5U7RK. He tells DX-World that heís there for a few months with his job.

Due to very bad internet connection (it takes too long to open his email) Yves cannot take skeds. His working conditions include a TS-50 and dipole antenna. QRV on CW & SSB, 80-10m.

QSL via buro to F5PRU, or direct with accepted IRC. Yves will try to upload the log to Club Log / LoTW depending on internet connection.
Dani, EA4ATI, who was currently active as 5Z4T during the CQWW DX SSB Contest this past weekend, informs OPDX that he will be in Kenya for a couple more years and will be active as 5Z4/EA4ATI. He is using a Cobwebb antenna with a small amplifier and is active on 30/20/17/15/10 meters. He hopes to improve on his station and use the low bands in the future. His QSL Manager is EA4YK
Ronald, VE3REV, recently moved to Dakar in August, and plans
to be active as 6W1SU for the next 2 to 3 years. Activity will be on 80-6
meters, and he is currently operating SSB only, but hoping to tackle CW
later. His station is a Kenwood TS850S with a Yaesu FL1200Z Amp into a
MA5B three element yagi, a 6M 6JXXJ 6 element yagi and dipoles for 40/80m.

Hello. Some news from Mali.

Iím still active and would be active until 2019 minimum so donít worry if you donít break the pile-up anyway, if it is not for this time it will be for a next time.

Iím currently active on 40, 20, 17, 12, 10 M and CW basically because itís the easiest for me with my 100W and a simple dipole. I cannot work on 80 and 15 M with the ICOM7300 that doesnít automatic tune on these two bands. I plan to bring back a manual tuning box the next time I go to France to solve the problem.

For the 160M with 100W, I do not know if itís really usefull, all the stations I heard have much better traffic conditions and were only received 55. I will try anyway in the future to find an antenna adequate to my QTH but it seems complicated and there is not a lot of things here to build an homemade. An amplifier should arrive in the middle of the year, only 300W output but it will be better than nothing.

About me, I would like just to remember that I am not a DX expedition. I practice radio in my free time, often after a busy day. The QSL is free via buro, just have patience. Those who send F5MXH directly to receive it faster are asked to participate as usual.

For LOTW, we will upload once we have received a significant number of QSLs to avoid someerrors in uploaded logs (and some cries). I stopped the radio for more than 15 years, the recovery was difficult, but itís like cycling, it does not get lost! and no problem anymore.
So I ask a little patience for some OM, when I start a call sign, I like to concretize it, even if I have to repeat 20 times his partial callsign to finish it, often drowned in the QRM because I am stubborn.

I would do a recording soon so that you can realize how difficult it is sometimes to hear the stations just because the QRM level is impossible to eliminate but I work with and I am applying to get the call signs in the noise.

When the propagation is present, it completely changes the way of trafficking since I manage to reach the 150 QSO per hour without any problem. There are some good sporadic openings on 10M sometimes just for an hour, but surprising.

I am also surprised by the number of double in my log. I am currently at 5700 QSO registered and I have 259 double? Often always the same stations that contacted me 7 or 8 times on the same bands, what is the interest ? They insist in the pile-up as it was the first time, I am obliged to answer them to release the frequency of their call, because i canít listen others with their big signals.

Some news about the modes, I just configure the RTTY and I would try some QSOs soon. Thank you for being indulgent, I have never done before! Hi!
Good traffic to all and best 73ís,

TZ5XR Laurent
January 2013 - here we go again! Ticket renewed - all bands, long term!
My goal is to work everyone but constant calling, and causing QRM, just slows the process.
It will also inspire me to turn the rig off and persue other projects.
Please keep calls SHORT!!!
The biggest problem are folks that keep calling & calling.
Give your call 1 or 2 times then LISTEN please.
International postage is expensive! If you have ANY doubt, or question, about a contact please email me first and let me check my logs. It could save you some $$ and grief. Questions about a QSL? - email me!
I'm also 3W3B - XW1B - HS0ZCY - XU7ADF - AA4XR - /BV2 - /9M2 - /KL7
Staion: A pair of Yaesu FT-2000's - 2el Lightningbolt Quad at 80ft - SteppIR MonstIR at 130ft
Bruce XW4XR/XW1B is now QRT and will return to Laos in March and several other times during 2013.He points out this was NOT a DXpedition as he lives in both Laos and Vietnam, travelling back and forth for business.
Soon he will be QRV as 3W3B.
QSL both XWXR and 3W3B via E21EIC.

Diya, YI1DZ is again active from Juba, South Sudan as Z81D. Activity on HF bands, SSB. Length of stay unknown. Diya was last active from South Sudan in April 2016. QSL via OM3JW.
Adrian, G0KOM, will once again
be active as ZC4MK and has renewed his ZC4 license for next 12 months.
His next operation will be from the Avdimou Beach between October 27-31st,
which will also include the CQWW DX SSB Contest (October 28-29th). Look
for more operations over the next year. QSL via HC
