Hello to all,
I will be operating in KanKan, Guinea ( Africa ) from August 3rd to
August 9th. My Guinea issued call is 3XY0D ( three x-ray yankee zero
Operating most on the higher bands of 20 / 17 / 15 meters, with some
tries of 40 meters, all depending on conditions.
Operating times will be around 10:00 GMT ( 6:00 EST AM ) to 11:00 GMT
( 7:00 EST AM )
Evenings are 23:00 hours GMT ( 7:00 EST PM ) until bands or operator
becomes too tired.
A Special QSL card will be made, upon my return for all contacts.
Hopefully a web site with pictures will be posted once I return.
Station will consist of a Kenwood TS-50S, operating with batteries and
Solar array. Power output will be around 10 to 20 watts.
Antenna will be a vertical and 88 ft dipole fed with ladder line.
I will only be able to do the logs via paper.
