OC-179. (Update) Cezar, VE3LYC, informs that the TCSI has issued him
the radio license for Temotu, and the callsign for the Duff Island operation is H40D! The license for Solomon Islands has been issued too, but the callsign isn't what he had requested due to an error. Bernhard, DL2GAC/H44MS, relayed his request for re-consideration to TCSI, and Cezar is hopeful that the matters will be resolved next week when the Telecommunications Commissioner will return back in office.
