Utility round-up

Several people have asked me to include the more unusual African and Asian stations in the Ute Round-up. I don't know why but somehow these stations are never reported on UDXF. The IARUMS however lists the stations that transmit illegally in the radio amateur bands, so I have included a couple of African IARUMS logs. It would be nice though if we got more logs from nets like these.

Especially from other areas than Europe and North America.
