Z6 NEW COUNTRY

SHRAK


01/23/2018
The ARRL Board of Directors approved a motion to amend the DXCC Rules, when it met January 19-20. Section II, Subsection 1 of the DXCC Rules now will include a new Subsection (d): The entity has a separate IARU member society and is included on the US State Department Independent States in the World.
“The discussion during the Board meeting and the rule change did not address any specific entity,” ARRL Radiosport Manager Norm Fusaro, W3IZ, said. “The amendment could allow some additions to the current DXCC List of entities. It’s a good thing not only for DXCC but for all active hams.”
In fact, the Republic of Kosovo (Z6) has been added to the DXCC List of current entities, increasing the total number of current DXCC entities to 340. The addition of Kosovo raises to 331 the required number of current entities confirmed to qualify for DXCC Honor Roll; Top of Honor Roll is 340. DXCC award accounts are being tabulated to reflect the change.
This change qualifies as an “event,” effective on January 21, 2018, at 0000 UTC. Nothing is retroactive.
A new Logbook of The World (LoTW) TQSL configuration file (v.11.4) will be released on January 23. TQSL will detect when this file has been released and will install the update automatically. Radio Amateurs outside of Kosovo should continue to upload their logs to LoTW in the usual manner. LoTW users within Kososvo (either with a Z6 call sign or reciprocal call sign Z6/<home call sign>) will use TQSLto request a new call sign certificate for their call sign. The request will use Republic of Kososvo as the DXCC entity, and the QSO Begin date will be January 21 or later. LoTW will reject call sign certificate requests for the Republic of Kosovo with a QSO Begin date prior to January 21. Z6 users requesting call sign certificates may e-maila copy of their Amateur Radio license.
Kosovo’s IARU member society SHRAK and its president Vjollca Caka, Z61VB, are hosting a 10th-anniversary activation to celebrate Kosovo’s independence in February, 2008. SHRAK Headquarters station Z60A now is active on several bands with multiple guest operators. Club Log will be used for this activation, while QSLs are via OH2BH.

Thank you for your patience.


News September 21 2017:


Thank you very much for all your mails so far reporting about the reception of our signals on 6160 kHz in the 49 m band with a simple note, audio files, screenshots of web SDRs or personal photos showing your reception equipment. All this has proven very helpful. The signal quality could be significantly improved step-by-step during the various tests while adjusting transmitter and audio equipment, partly rebuilding the final antenna filter circuit to cater for an increased power output in this custom designed rig. We have five more weeks to complete our test phase so stay tuned on 6160 as well as on 3975 kHz.

News December 10 2017:


We now have the 3975 kHz outlet ready to roll and had it tested extensively on Saturday afternoon into the night. Regular tests will be on the air from tomorrow onwards with the two channels alternating according to the schedule (see below) from now on. Please note we always keep an eye on the MUF (maximum usable frequency) so it may occur that we leave out a slot. This is usually the case on 6160 kHz in the evenings when interference from Asian stations is at a high level. Interesting to mention: we were successful in crossing the Atlantic on such an occasion near the end of October and received reports from America’s eastcoast.

Good Dx from IK1XPK, Claudio.
