Marion Island

Marion Island will be on the air soon, for an extended duration!

*****

Take note David ZS8Z (ZS1BCE / ZD9A) has arrived on Marion Island and
will spend the next 17 months there as the radio technician.  He will
be active on most HF bands on SSB and digital.

I expect him to be active early Jan 2017 once he has sorted out his licence.

I will keep you updated.
