[APRIL 24] Initially reported as a pirate station, we now have confirmation that the real ZD9BV (Andy) is again QRV as of the last few days after being off air for some years. On April 4th, his callsign was being pirated, however at that time local friends on the island mentioned he was beginning to set up some antennas.
Salvo, if Andy wants to take care of his QSL cards by himself, you can try this address:
Mr. Andrea Repetto (Communications)
Tristan da Cunha Island
South Atlantic Ocean
(via England, United Kingdom)
There aren’t too many of his name on the island., hi.
Mail service to and from TdC is dependent on the mail service in the Republic of South Africa.
Especially due to Covid restrictions, the RSA post had ceased airmail service to most of the European countries.
However, in the meantime the route via the UK to RSA should be working again.
There are still huge delays in forwarding mail to and from TdC, so you need to have patience and might have to wait several months.

Good morning DXWORD guys. I inform you that this morning the Italian post office did not recognize the country and the shipping address for my colleague ANDY ZD9BV. Could Andy be asked for an alternative address to send the qsl direct, or an Oqrs to receive his paper qsl or QSO confirmation? Unfortunately from Italy it is impossible to ship to his address as specified on QRZ.COM. I hope you can help us Italian OMs to get the paper qsl or the confirmation via LOTW. I hope for your help answer. Heartfelt thanks and good work.
