Over on DX-World’s Land of QSLs, Simon XW0LP (also XZ2A) left some remarks pertaining to Myanmar activities.

I decided not to take my rig to Myanmar this time because a) It is really too dangerous because of the civil war. I will be teaching again in Mandalay, where there is a lot of daily violence against the civilian population and b) I really don’t trust the military junta who could say ‘sure bring your rig’ and then arrest me for having the rig! and c) The junta guys are not the legitimate government of the country and really have no legal authority to issue the ham station operating permit!

My plans are to retire back to live/operate from Luang Prabang again in July 2025 after I complete my teaching job in Mandalay, Myanmar.
