Update - Planned N. Korea Operaton Delayed Until Summer

Polish DXer Dom Gryzb, 3Z9DX, who made a surprise on-air demonstration of amateur radio for officials in North Korea in late December (see story below), has told DX World that he is delaying his planned full-scale DXpedition until late summer of 2016. 

This, according to the report, is to give him time to secure a quieter operating location. He had initially planned to be back on the air in February.

The success of Dom's December operation was limited by being in a very noisy location and by a solar flare that degraded HF conditions. Nontheless, he was able to make 785 contacts during the unannounced operation, mostly in Asia.
