The DXpedition is now over.
Thanks to you , we achieved over 52000 QSO
We had much fun to work you.
The team will spreadout after landing, but the question we all ask is :
WHERE DO WE GO NEXT ?
follow our backtrip:
Thanks to all for these great moments.
Monsieur Gnayoro de l’AIGF, L’agence des Fréquences Ivoirienne, nous a rendu visite et nous a ramené les originaux de nos licences.
The CW Low Band Team says thanks for some interesting nigths on 80 and 160.
Very interesting and challenging CONDX from here…
On 160, TX ant was Inverted L GP. RX was B.O.G.s approx. 70 meters long (one to North America, one to EU and JA).
Power was only 600 watts. The big AMP broke down the first evening !
Now at the end, we are tired, but hope that there are many happy Low Bander.

The whole team thanks you all for the 30000 QSO and the great fun in the pileups.

2 operator went the for a small visit today.
More to come later.

The DXpedition is going forward, the propagation seems good.
The team suffers from warm and humid climate.
Despite some luggage lost, being late , power failures and one amplifier getting weird we are delighted to annouce more than 5000 QSO in 23h in our log.
Band conditions are good, 10m is less . We still didn’t start the 6m station.
Receiving antennas were installed today , so we will be QRV on 160 tonight.
Despite some small sickness , the Operators are at their maximum.
The temperature is very hot, and humidity is 90%.
We hope that RTTY and PSK on less common bands make the most happy.
Feel free to post a mesage on our guestbook or to contact our pilots.
