I am over 300 but nowhere near the top but still it's darned rare when my spot log lights up with an ATNO on CW. Since I don't work SSB or data modes I know I have kept my total count down but seeing TZ6BB come across today on 14.008 I had to give a try. I listened but heard nothing, I left the radio on & went back to learning how to use N1MM & suddenly there he was with marked QSB & after 20 minutes of trying on the peaks when I could hear him 100%, he came back.

Inch by inch, row by row...

Worked the station 4 days ago on 17 CW and to my surprise, they were confirmed on LOTW this afternoon!

How nice is that!

I already finished getting a SASE ready for a card. I want a card for every new one (wallpaper & all that). LOTW is really nice, I bet it's put a real dent in the bureau.

It was a nice surprise to work TZ6TR just after our sunset on 14008. He we weak but seems to hear very well. There was virtually no pile up.  I had worked TZ6TR but never got it confirmed, so this is an ATNO for me.

He had a heck of a signal on 17 over the weekend. I got him in three calls. I would venture to say Mali is going to be very tough to activate in the very near future.

........I had worked TZ6TR but never got it confirmed..........

I worked TZ6TR this past September and got his address from a JA who had got a card from him. I am still waiting! Getting the TZ6BB confirmed in 4 days is indeed nice!

A year ago I sent direct for TZ6TR but never received the card. There was address listed on QRZ.com but it's not there now. No info about the TZ6TR operation whatsoever. I am not sure if DXCC has even approved TZ6TR. I am glad TZ6BB is there for us. Quick LOTW confirmation, what else someone could ask for?

It was.

 I received my cards back in Nov, 2011.

Fernando had been more active, and the LOTW upload is nice.

I had also worked and confirmed TZ6TR but I wanted a back-up for DXCC purposes.

Fernando is a great CW op and I also just received my LOTW confirmation for TZ6BB.  Grin

I encourage everyone who needs TZ to work Fernando ASAP given the volatile political environment
over there there is no telling how soon he may need to go QRT.

Is the mailing address printed on your TZ6TR Qsl card? Any other info that I can use to locate his manager? I don't understand why there is no info on QRZ.com anymore.

Thanks,

This is the QSL info I got from JL1PPS:

I sent a QSL card to his German address.
I received his QSL card, last year.
(sent:2011/08/31, rec:2011/11/19)
 
Attached his QSL card.
 
This is his German address(?).

Good luck!

I used the same address and did eventually receive my card.

When this was briefly posted on QRZ.com I believe Tom indicated that he needed $3USD plus an SAE
for a return card.  Given increases in postage rates I might consider including at least $4USD.

He was quite strong on 40 CW last night around 0030Z, pile-up not too bad.

TZ6BB has a decent signal on 10 meters now but he was much stronger about 20 minutes ago. If he has a beam he has pointed it to Brazil. 6W2SC is 5 Khz up from TZ6BB with a much stronger signal. I just worked both but both are just a sand wedge away from my QTH.

I worked a British station on 12 meters who was using a Midland handheld with a 5 foot whip and 5 watts. I have a similar device from the pre-cellphone days and it was designed for emergency use on 11 meters.  I think he must have converted that because I don't believe Midland has entered the amateur market and he said the device came from the USA. After I worked the 5 W handheld I worked a German station on holiday in Spain running 10 watts to an inverted Vee. Conditions are not bad for a SFI of about 100.

I had not worked Mali since 1989 and 1991 and this was my first CW contact with Mali.

73,
