Peter DC0KK will again be active from Sri Lanka as 4S7KKG from November 1, 2017 to March 25, 2018. Look for him on digital modes and CW. QSL via HC.
Yves, F5PRU is currently located in South Niger and will be active during free time as 5U7RK. He tells DX-World that he’s 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
Fernando, EA4BB (ex-TZ6BB, Z21BB, ST2BF, D2BB, TU5JL, 9Q5BB) is now in Kinshasa, D.R.C and will active for up to 3 years as 9Q6BB (call not confirmed yet).
Peter, HB9DVG will soon be active from Rwanda for the next two years. QRV on 20-10m SSB as 9X9PJ and 9X9PJ/P. Equipment: Elecraft KX3 and HLA300 amplifier and Buddipole Vertical. QSL via HC (direct) & eQSL.
Bernard/DL2GAC ist vom 29. Januar bis 02. Mai erneut als H44MS von den Solomon Islands (OC-047) aus auf Kurzwelle aktiv. QSL via HC (d/B).
Dane, S53T is currently active from Djibouti as J28ND. His license is valid until the end of 2019. At the moment QRV using homemade verticals. QSL via S57DX.
Jean-Philippe, F1TMY will be active from Djibouti as J28PJ starting from September 1, 2016. Length of stay 3 years, perhaps up to 5.
QRV on HF bands + 6m.
QSL via HC
Jovica, E78A (ex. 6W1SJ, 9K2/T94FC, ST0RM, ST2A, T94FC, T98A, TT8JT) just started his activity from Amman, Jordan as JY9FC.

As per previous activities, he will be QRV during free time mostly on CW with some SSB and digital.

QSL via E73Y: Boris Knezovic, P.O. Box 59, 71000 Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, or via E7 bureau.

Adrian, EA1CYK is active again (last time in 2014) from Lebanon as OD5/EA1CYK. His QSL manager, EA7LS, says he will be there until May 2018 and radio activity depends on his work, so will be mainly QRV during weekends.
Bill VK4FW mentions that Benaia Batia T32BN works for the Police Force of the Kiritimati Government.

He could also be active sporadically as T30BN during job transfers to Tarawa.
QSL both calls via VK4FW.

FAt the end of July, Nicolas TJ3SN (ex-TN5SN, 5T5SN) went QRT from Cameroon. Later this year Nicolas will be moving to Benin and active as TY2SN. He will be there for three years.
Activity on 160 – 6m CW, SSB.
Laurent, F5IXR will again be active from Kidal city, north east Mali as TZ5XR starting August 1st until February 2017. During two weeks in mid-August he will be off air while attending a training camp in Canada. When in Mali, QRV all bands 160-6 when time permits. QSL via F5MXH

Hello. Some news from Mali.

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

I’m currently active on 40, 20, 17, 12, 10 M and CW basically because it’s the easiest for me with my 100W and a simple dipole. I cannot work on 80 and 15 M with the ICOM7300 that doesn’t 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 it’s 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 some  errors in uploaded logs (and some cries). I stopped the radio for more than 15 years, the recovery was difficult, but it’s 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 can’t 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 73’s,

TZ5XR Laurent
Laurent/F5TMJ hält sich ab dem 01. Oktober für eine längere Zeit in Ho Chi Minh City auf und hat eine Lizenz für 80 - 6 Meter bekommen. Als XV9JM ist er zum Anfang sporadisch QRV, will seine Aktivitäten aber allmählich erhoehen. Im Juni 2018 will er auf 50MHz ein lautes Signal erzeugen. QSL via F6ITD (d/B), LoTW.
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.
