Info from Simon, ex-XW0LP who recently moved to TRNC & then Turkey, but is now on the move again:

My plans to activate 1B (Turkish Republic of North Cyprus) are no longer feasible, because the licensing authorities failed to reply to any of my communications!

Whilst languishing in Turkey waiting for that license, the cold weather created a lot of problems for my lungs (I have a long-term lung illness), and I had to quickly look for a new and hot country to call home.

Well, here I am in sunny Mauritius! I have rented a nice house with a big garden, and hope to be on the air in the next month or so with my 3B8 callsign. Especially, I hope to do some low band DXing (I managed to bring my 12m and 18m Spiderbeam poles with me!).
