Covid-19 has arrived in Peru. Our village is being sealed by the natives, nobody gets in or out. My wife and I decided for self-isolation. At the moment we are well. 73 Daniel IK2SGL, OA9DVK

AUGUST 10, 2019 — Daniel, ex-IK2SL/OA9 is now active from the Amazon Rainforest as OA9DVK and is QRV when time permits.
He is active on 160-6m using a TS-480SAT with Inverted V antenna (40-160m) and a homebrew mono-band quad for HF bands.
Daniel moved to the Peruvian Selva (isolated rainforest) with his wife as they are international volunteers in a worldwide education program and contact & help the indigenous people of the region: the Awajun people.
Daniel writes: “There is nothing better than to help others and use our own energies and resources to give hope to people.”
The area “9” of Peru is rare. There appears to be no other OA9 stations active. Look for Daniel on 20m around 22:00utc. QSL via LoTW and eQSL. Twitter @IK2SGL
