NI5DX, Buzz, is now serving as QSL manager for 3B8CW, Clive, on Mauritius Island. Buzz has Clive’s past logs and will be able to confirm contacts made with 3B8CW from September 1, 2011 onward. Clive is using a Mosley TA-33 antenna at the present time, but is considering building/buying a HexBeam to improve his signal and allow operation on the 79-WARC bands. A QSL card is now being designed and will be printed soon. Please allow for a short delay in response if sending for a card before they arrive from the printer. This is generally 4-6 weeks after the order is placed.
