VQ9    - Jim, ND9M will be returning to Diego Garcia (AF-006) on 12  December
         for another  four-month tour  and will  resume operating  as  VQ9JC.
         However, he does not know yet  how much of his  four months will  be
         spent there, as his ship will be leaving the island in a few  weeks.
         If the ship is reassigned to another port, this would likely be  his
         final chance to  put out VQ9.  Usually Jim cannot  be QRV before  12
         UTC, and his operating time tends to run about 85% CW, 10% SSB,  and
         5% digital, mainly  on 10-80 metres.  He must  QRT by  16.30 UTC  on
         Sundays  through  Thursdays,  and  by  17.30  UTC  on  Fridays   and
         Saturdays. "I will occasionally stay overnight to work early morning
         DX", he says, but "even  if I do  stay overnight, I  have to QRT  by
         about 00.50 UTC". QSL via ND9M, direct or bureau. [TNX ND9M]
