TZ6BB QRT ---> Fernando, TZ6BB (EA4BB) has been reassigned  to  Nigeria  and
will go there on 8 September. "I was kind of expecting this, though  not  so
soon", he says. This means that TZ6BB will go QRT from  Mali  on  Sunday  (7
September) evening. He will be back to Mali for a few days by mid  November,
"but my task then will be to dismantle the station, pack all my  things  and
then return to 5N land to stay. I will of course do my best  to  be  on  the
air from there, but I need first to sort a license, QTH,  station  etc.  Not
sure how long that is  going  to  take,  but  I'm  afraid  it  won't  happen
overnight. I am leaving some of my radio  equipment  (including  a  nice  HF
transceiver) behind, here in Mali, as a little present to  a  local  ham  in
the hope he will keep Mali active on the bands  in  the  future.  Let's  see
what happens". [TNX TZ6BB]
