    8N6SHURI - Shuri Castle - Okinawa Island - Japan

    Radio Amateurs members of JARL Okinawa Branch will be active with special call 8N6SHURI from Okinawa Island, IOTA AS - 017, Japan, 1 January - 31 December 2020, supporting Shuri Castle Reconstruction.
    They will operate on HF Bands.
    QSL via buro.
    Information from their qrz page:
    The symbol of Okinawa and UNESCO's world heritage site, Shuri Castle, was destroyed in a fire early morning of October 31, 2019. Just recently restored to its original state, the castle’s large parts were burnt down and damaged, including the main and seven other buildings.

    Okinawa lost its symbol of the Ryukyu heritage and its citizen is disheartened by the incident. Many well wishes and encouragements, including the support for the rebuilding of the castle are coming in.
