It's taking a couple of days for all the logs to be collated and sent to our QSL manager and clublog, so give it a couple of days.
If you found a busted callsign, or your QSO doesn't appear in the log after a few days email John, ZL1ALZ who is the 'keeper of the logs'.
ZM90DX is a special event callsign operated by the KiwiDX group from a number of home stations in New Zealand,not the Auckland and Campbell Islands.
ZL9*** is the Auckland and Campbell Islands prefix.
ZL90DX has been allocated by Radio Spectrum Management, the appropriate authority in New Zealand for a twelve month period as a special event call sign. We have opted to use ZM90DX to distinguish it from ZL9.
The 'ZM' prefix in New Zealand is used for special events and contesting. All ZL hams are allowed to use 'ZM' as their prefix for these purposes.
You can update your logging software or cluster client to recognise ZM90DX as New Zealand by installing the the latest country files from http://www.country-files.com/.
If the web-cluster you use is not correctly identifying ZM90 as being New Zealand please ask the operators of the cluster to update to the latest country files. :-)
ZM90DX is being operated by a wide range of hams over the 13 months we'll be QRV, and we expect to cover all bands, and all modes from 160m CW right through to 70cm EME and above during that time if we can.
Drop us an email via the Contact Page if you want information about planned activity on a specific band.
The log page shows a summary of the bands and modes already in the log.
