He will arrive on Jolo Sulu sometime in the next two weeks and is there as part of a work maintenance crew. He will be qrv on HF using vertical antennas, a K3 and KPA500 PA.
Operations will be sporadic, in between work commitments and at this stage there is no date for him being qrt. He could be on Jolo Sulu for several weeks possibly a month. His location is sensitive and therefore it not appropriate to have an operating schedule. 

He will try to benefit all continents dependent on propagation during the times he has available.

2016/2017 Postal Mailing


The UK QSL managers continue to deal with large volumes of outgoing QSL cards both direct letters and bureau parcels to all the IARU Bureaus. This is a summary of the postage for the year 01/04/2016 to 31/03/2017.

Direct items are slightly down by -1.3% on last year. An increased postal cost of +4.45% on last year which is mainly due to our increased Bureau work over the last year along with an adjustment of exchange rate against the US dollar.
