After a long while, returning to West-Africa in January 2017!
If all goes well, will be QRV from about 20.01.17, until March. As usual, mostly CW, but if you need a Phone or Digi QSO, ask for a sked by Email. QSL after the trip, via my homecall HA3AUI.
QRT Now! TNX FER all the calls! You can now request QSLs using the Donate button on the logsearch page, sending at least $4 and putting your callsign in the Remarks field. It has been a pleasure and a great experience, made less QSOs than last time, as I concentrated mainly on the J5 activity. I had to cancel the planned IOTA activities due to insufficent funds, maybe next year. Also tried some six meters operation, but I don't like it any more than before :) I have been once again annoyed by the high number of duplicate QSOs. 73 and CU next year!
Will be QRV again from lateJanuary 2013! I will be operating99% CW, other modes on request. I will be operating10-30mmost of the time, maybe 40-80m ocassionally. Pleasedo not ask for other bands, especially six meters, I have no antennas and no time to waste waiting for ocassional openings. Pleasedo not send QSL cards to the HA Buro!
Equipment used: K3, IC-2KL/AT-500, 5Band Spiderbeam for 10-20, GP for 30, Dipoles for 40-160.
MixW for RTTY, UCX Log for the rest, running on an old IBM Thinkpad.
For all info, including QSL status and OnLine Log, please visit my Africa website!
A few hints to make our life easier and our hobby more fun:
- Know what "UP" means!
- Avoid dupes! I update the online log almost every day, check your QSOs!
- If a specific country or continent is called, don't call if you are not there!
Further details are on the DX Code of Conduct website, keep those in mind!
