A92GE, David, informed that Regi, A9/ON4CFI, is operating illegally and may be jeopardizing amateur radio operations for everyone in Bahrain. He went on to say that there are no guest or reciprocal licences in this Gulf nation, so any A9/**** stations are illegal.
A Japanese newspaper reported that Zorro, JH1AJT, and another OM were arrested on June 16th because in 1995 Zorro allegedly had let another person take the test for class 2 for him using false identification. Last month Zorro was announced as the 1999 New Orleans International DX Conventions DXer of the year with his activities as 7O1A, XW30/ XW30A, A51/JH1AJT, XU1A, XW8KPL, E31A etc. During the 1998 Visalia International DX Convention he announced that he had been invited back to the Kingdom of Bhutan for another DX-pedition. This operation was originally scheduled for early 1999 and has yet to happen.
