    Republic of South Sudan to receive Z8 licenses are James Pratt
    K7QI (Z81A, QSL via K7GSE) and Diya Al Sadi YI1DZ (Z81D, QSL via
    OM3JW). Both of them live and work in Juba. Jim will be back home
    on 25 September, he will return to Juba around late October or
    early November. "Once I am set up and operating", he says, "I plan
    on being highly active, and will be on just about everyday". For
    the time being, he can use Diya's station.
    ZD9 - Weather permitting, Martin G3ZAY and Rob M0VFC should arrive on
    Tristan da Cunha [425DXN 1113] around 27 September, and be active
    as ZD9UW until 4 October. Their main goal is "to allow as many
    people as possible to get ZD9 in their log at least once, rather
    than concentrating on those aiming to work us on multiple slots".
    They expect to be QRV on 80-10 metres CW (Martin) and SSB (Rob),
    with some RTTY if time and pile-ups permit. There's unlikely to be
    time for 160m operation ("we can probably give more people the
    chance to work us on the higher bands"), but they will have a
    small 6m antenna and will be operational if the band is reasonably
    open. QSL via OQRS on Club Log (for both direct and bureau cards);
    traditional direct cards should be sent to M0VFC. Further
    information, including how to help the Tristan da Cunha
    Educational Trust Fund and receive a direct QSL card from the
    island, can be found at www.zd9uw.org.uk. [TNX G3ZAY]
