"I will be deploying to the British Forces South Atlantic Islands (BFSAI),
Mount Pleasant Complex, Falkland Islands, at the end of April after two
weeks quarantine here in the UK.
 Falkland Islands Communications Regulator has issued me with the full
temporary license VP8ZMS valid from now until my expected departure at
the end of August 2021.
 I hope to be active using the RAFARS club station shack (VP8RAF & VP8FIR),
but I am taking my own FT-817, digital interface and some basic dipole kit
just as backup.
 Details of Rigs/power/modes & Bands I will try to publish here, VP8ZMS
Twitter Page (https://twitter.com/Vp8Zms) as well as operating times and
other info I find interesting!
 If time permits, or for a special occasion I will activate VP8RAF, but
QSL cards etc are not in my control with that call.
 I am in the process of setting up LoTW & ClubLog for the call, and will
be issuing paper QSL Cards via the Bureau on my return to the UK.
 My main focus of operating is of course to have a go at being the
'Rare DX' for once, but also to promote awareness of the Royal Air Force
Amateur Radio Society (RAFARS, of which I am the serving members repre-
sentative - https://www.rafars.org/council_members/ ), the Falkland Islands
and the RAF/BFSAI."

the end of World War II, and thus Denmark's liberation, the callsign
OZ75MAY was active in May 2020. However, Bornholm Island was not lib-
erated until April 5th, 1946, so Danish radio amateurs will be active
with the two special callsigns OZ75BO and OZ75MAY during the period of
April 1-11th, 2021. Activity will be on all the bands, including the
WARC bands, using CW, SSB and all Digital modes. Operators active from
Bornholm Island (EU-030) and the surrounding islands, will use the call-
sign OZ75BO. Operators in the rest of Denmark will use the callsign
OZ75MAY. QSL both callsigns via OZ1ACB or ClubLog's OQRS. They prefer
NOT to receive paper QSL card. Please order QSL card via Clublog's OQRS
instead. A special award is available. Find all the informations to get
the special award at: https://www.oz75may.oz0j.dk

VP8, FALKLAND ISLANDS (SA-002). The Falkland Islands will have a new
operator in May. Matthew, M0ZMS, informs OPDX of the following [edited]:
"I will be deploying to the British Forces South Atlantic Islands (BFSAI),
Mount Pleasant Complex, Falkland Islands, at the end of April after two
weeks quarantine here in the UK.
 Falkland Islands Communications Regulator has issued me with the full
temporary license VP8ZMS valid from now until my expected departure at
the end of August 2021.
 I hope to be active using the RAFARS club station shack (VP8RAF & VP8FIR),
but I am taking my own FT-817, digital interface and some basic dipole kit
just as backup.
 Details of Rigs/power/modes & Bands I will try to publish here, VP8ZMS
Twitter Page (https://twitter.com/Vp8Zms) as well as operating times and
other info I find interesting!
 If time permits, or for a special occasion I will activate VP8RAF, but
QSL cards etc are not in my control with that call.
 I am in the process of setting up LoTW & ClubLog for the call, and will
be issuing paper QSL Cards via the Bureau on my return to the UK.
 My main focus of operating is of course to have a go at being the
'Rare DX' for once, but also to promote awareness of the Royal Air Force
Amateur Radio Society (RAFARS, of which I am the serving members repre-
sentative - https://www.rafars.org/council_members/ ), the Falkland Islands
and the RAF/BFSAI."

VX2, CANADA (Special Event/Contest). Pierre, VA2CZ, will be active as
VX2Z from Sherbrooke, QC, during the CQWW WPX SSB Contest (March 27-28th).
