9M6DXX will go QRT in October


After more than eight years in Malaysia, my wife Eva, 9M6EVA, and I have decided to move on to another part of the world. We leave Malaysia on 1 November, therefore 9M6DXX will go QRT some time in October. 9M8Z has already closed down; the last QSO from that station was made in the RSGB IOTA Contest in July.

We will be moving to Bonaire and we hope to be active with PJ4 callsigns before the end of the year.

Thanks for all the QSOs from 9M6DXX and 9M8Z (also 9M6DXX/P, 9M8Z/P, XU7DXX, V8FEO, V85/9M8Z, FK/G4JVG, T32MI / CI / VI / SI, 4W6A, GD4JVG and 9M4SLL) since 2005. It’s been fun! 

73, Steve, 9M6DXX
