Russian DXpedition from Malawi 30th June to 10th July. https://www.dx-world.net/7q5ru-malawi/
I don't know how often this country is available to try and make contact with. Maybe it is more common than I think, but yesterday was the first time I have heard anyone from there ever on any ham bands or 11m, and was really pleased to finally make the contact after an hour of calling and a bit of a struggle once I got through the pileup, on 12m SSB.
Still a couple of days left of their activation. They are also using many bands and modes including FT8 and other digi I noticed in their spot reports by others, so one for all to look out for if you need this one. Good luck!
