ZD9    - Weather permitting, Martin G3ZAY and Rob  M0VFC  should  arrive  on
         Tristan da Cunha [425DXN 1113] around 27 September, and  be  active
         as ZD9UW until 4 October. Their main goal  is  "to  allow  as  many
         people as possible to get ZD9 in their log at  least  once,  rather
         than concentrating on those aiming to work us on  multiple  slots".
         They expect to be QRV on 80-10 metres CW (Martin)  and  SSB  (Rob),
         with some RTTY if time and pile-ups permit. There's unlikely to  be
         time for 160m operation ("we can  probably  give  more  people  the
         chance to work us on the higher  bands"),  but  they  will  have  a
         small 6m antenna and will be operational if the band is  reasonably
         open. QSL via OQRS on Club Log (for both direct and bureau  cards);
         traditional  direct  cards  should  be  sent  to  M0VFC.    Further
         information,  including  how  to  help  the  Tristan    da    Cunha
         Educational Trust Fund and receive  a  direct  QSL  card  from  the
         island, can be found at www.zd9uw.org.uk. [TNX G3ZAY]
