    I've looked and can not find the protocol for using my call while operating in the Cayman Islands. I got a Cayman Island license, so can maybe one of you "DXpedition" gurus explain the proper use of the the call while operating portable? My US call is KK4UIE and the CI call is ZF2WB. I have seen ZF2/KK4UIE where "portable" is used for the stroke. Or is it proper to just use the ZF2WB? Or does one switch it around and use KK4UIE/ZF2? I have seen reference to several configurations but several conflicting uses as we'll.

    Also how should this be "registered" with QRZ, ARRL?

    Any help or links on these subjects would be greatly appreciated?

    If you have a valid ZF2 call sign that is what you should use when in the Caymans, not your US call sign with ZF2 before or after it. You can list the full ZF2 call on QRZ and I believe the FAQ's tell you how

    By "register with ARRL" I assume you mean using Logbook of the World (LoTW).

    I see that you're not currently a LoTW user ... so the first thing to do is to become a user under your KK4UIE callsign.

    Instructions for doing that are found here:

    Once your KK4UIE is active on LoTW --that is you've received a LoTW "certificate" for it-- you can apply for an additional certificate for your ZF2WB callsign.

    Instructions for that are found here: Additional Call Sgin Certificates.pdf
