Yes, I think Jonathan also states it correctly, which is why I am glad that there are others such as Paul and the Intrepid DX Group who are also trying to activate XZ. Good luck to them.
it is because the ham(s) specifically traveled to a country to put it on the air
Well, that's exactly why I originally travelled to Myanmar! I'm not living here by some coincidence
I originally travelled every few weeks from my home in Thailand to south Myanmar and was able to briefly operate as XZ1K. But a longer stay in the country requires an employment visa and paying job. So I had to move up to Yangon and find a job whilst I continued my efforts to obtain a new licence (licence issue is the responsibility of each state in Myanmar).
Finally, I have NEVER requested or sought financial support for this project. I fund these efforts myself. But I would appreciate 'moral' support from national radio organisations which could help to persuade the issuer of the XZ licence (the minister of telecoms & IT), of the good support for my efforts.
