It’s official, the first two amateur radio operators in The Republic of South Sudan are:
- James Pratt (K7QI) and now (Z81A) – QSL via K7GSE.
- Diya Al Sadi (YI1DZ) and now (Z81D) – QSL via OM3JW.
These are permanent callsigns given by the Ministry of Telecommunications and Postal Services.
At present time, Diya is all setup and ready to go, and thanks to Diya’s kindness, both Z81A and Z81D will be using his station located at Nyakuron South, Juba.
