Jay Oka, JA1TRC, reports that XZ1Z returned to the air a day earlier than expected from Naypyidaw, Myanmar (Burma), the nation’s capital. Two stations are on the air, with Zorro, JH1AJT; Champ, E21EIC; and Ted, JJ1LIB, as operators.

Operation is primarily on CW and focused to the Americas. Wire antennas are in place for 160, 80, 40, 30 and 17, as well as a triband Yagi. XZ1Z has been spotted on 80, 40, 20 and 17 meters CW and on 15 meter phone. Oka says he plans to update the logs on ClubLog and upload to LoTW .

He 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.
