UPDATE II5R8SP also issued. Seems there will be lots of activity from Madagascar – eventually ! 

UPDATE I5R8BU & 5R8PB now issued.

“DX-Holiday.com” (run by 5R8UI) recently announced you can obtain a special 5R8** callsign for a future DXpedition in Madagascar. There’s much more info in obtaining your callsign here. So far both 5R8AP and 5R8UX have taken advantage of this service.
