XZ2A – Myanmar

 

XZ2A 

THE FIRST RESIDENT AMATEUR RADIO STATION IN MYANMAR SINCE 1962!

Simon mentions he is now on air using a temporary antenna at his current QTH.

QSL PROCEDURE:

  • I try to upload my QSOs regulary to LOTW (A donation to my charity may hasten that upload hihi!)
  • Currently, I only upload my logs to LOTW and Clublog, and not to eQSL or QRZ.com
  • I do not need your QSL cards, either sent direct or via your bureau
  • There is no QSL bureau in Myanmar – so I cannot receive nor send QSL cards out via a bureau
  • If you want to receive a hard-copy QSL card for your QSO with me, please visit my Clublog OQRS page
  • I post out my QSL cards 2 times per year, when I visit Bangkok (Thailand) and send using Thailand Post
  • I welcome QSL reports from short wave listeners (SWL). Please send your report direct to my email address and make a payment via Paypal of $2.
  • Clublog OQRS and SWL revenues are used to cover outbound postage costs only. Any balance remaining is used for my charitable purposes.

RADIO EQUIPMENT:

I currently use an Icom IC-718 with a 29 feet, homebrew vertical antenna that is a 5/8 wavelength on 15 meters.

FREQUENCIES:

  • I am currently licenced to use 15, 12 and 10 metre bands only.

MODES AND OPERATING:

  • I use FT-8, JT-65, PSK, RTTY, SSB, SSTV, Hellschreiber and maybe other digital modes
  • I use SSB, but currently do not use CW
  • When using FT-8, please do not transmit on my frequency! Spread out on the waterfall and my software (and my eyes) will see your signal and callsign.
  • I do not operate ”robot” style, but will Search & Pounce, or select a call to reply to.  So you do not have to be the strongest signal on the waterfall to get a QSO!
  • I currently DO NOT use WSJT-X DXpedition mode (fox and hounds) for FT-8. 
  • If I start to use this mode, then I will announce this on my QRZ web page.
  • I have a very low tolerance level to LIDs and idiots! Please follow the DX Code of Conduct.
