Hjem > TL8AO Central African Republic

I was active in Central African Republic as TL8AO between 11 Nov - 22 Nov 2016. I made 14200 QSOs in 10 days, despite poor conds and a thunderstorm that broke my beam and 80m dipole.

 

At the start of  DXped TL was ranked

 

  • 50 world wide mixed
  • 19 world wide CW

 

Operation was 80-10m, and I used the following equipment.

 

  • Radio Elecraft K3
  • Radio TS480SAT as backup
  • Amplifier Ameritron ALS 500m 400 W output.
  • 2 element beam on 14-21-28 MHz up 25meter
  • Wire dipole on 80,40,30,17,12m up 22 meter
  • Wire backup antennas on all frequencies

During this DXpedition I setup a humanitarian fundraiser where all money was transferred to Doctors Without Borders.
The Ham Radio community quite generously donated about 11OOO USD to this humanitarian fundraiser!
