ZS9MADIBA – Special call sign to celebrate President Nelson Mandala’s legacy – The SARL will be operating special event stations from around South Africa using the call sign ZS9MADIBA. Members of the SARL are invited to apply for time slots to operate ZS9MIDIBA from their own shacks. QSLing is via the bureau or by sending your QSL to SARL, P O Box 1721, Strubensvallei 1735, South Africa. You may also use Logbook of the World. To receive the special QSL card by mail, include $1 for postage.

 ZS9MADIBA is the South African Radio League Special Event Station commemorating the life and recent passing of Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela, elder statesman and first democratically-elected President of the Republic of South Africa. Affectionately referred to as “Madiba”, he became one of the most recognised leaders in the world and was instrumental in the peaceful transition of South Africa from minority rule to a constitutional democracy. South Africans join the people of the world in mourning his passing and celebrating his legacy.

“This will be the QRZ page for the SARL Nelson Mandela Commemoration Station.
Please note that no licence has yet been issued for operations to begin – hence no QSLs will be exchanged with any station for QSOs that take place prior to confirmation by the SARL that a licence has been issued under this callsign.
You will know whether you have contacted the official SARL station by checking the operating schedule that we will publish here.
Watch for updates here!”
