Most of my contacts made with this call sign have been from homes in Northern Virginia, either Vienna (2007) or Fairfax (2009 - 2014). During the latter period, I also frequently worked mobile, particularly 30m CW, as I had a long commute through the dense traffic around Washington, DC.
As of August 2014, I have moved to Antananarivo, Madagascar, where I am operating as 5R8SV from our home in the Ivandry neighborhood. I am putting frequent updates on the 5R8SV page on qrz.com, and more extensive posts on the blog. As I get settled, there may be some opportunities to operate from locations in Madagascar outside the capital city or on neighboring islands. My job also involves visits throughout Sub-Saharan Africa, so where I can make it work in terms of licensing, I may be able to work QRP from some of those countries as well.
My QSL manager for operations in Africa is Phil, G3SWH.
