Resumption of Myanmar (Burma) Operation Imminent

09/17/2013

Jay Oka, JA1TRC, reports that Zorro, JH1AJT, is back in Myanmar (Burma) on a humanitarian mission and plans to get on the air as XZ1Z as soon as practical. He must still renew his license after he arrives in Naypyidaw, the nation’s capital. Then he will start get on the air as soon as he sets up antennas (ground planes for 20 and 17) that he used in August as well as a tribander. Operation will be mainly on CW and focused to the Americas.

“I expect to receive the logs, if the hotel Internet connection is stable, and hope to update ClubLog,” Oka says. “In the meantime, QSO data for all those who have requested [electronic confirmations] for the August operation are being uploaded to LoTW, and [I am] planning to do the same for the September operation.”

Oka points out that local time in Myanmar is UTC + 6:30.

The earlier XZ1Z operation has been approved for DXCC credit. Myanmar is the 24th most wanted DXCC entity, according to ClubLog. QSL to JH1AJT, PO Box 8, Oiso, Naka-gun, Kanagawa 259-0111, Japan. — Thanks to Jay S. OKA, JA1TRC
