I will QRV from Somalia Sep 14th to Sep 28th on all bands 160-10m on mainly CW. Activity on other modes (SSB, FT8) will be limited and on 1-2 bands only.
This trip has proved to be very difficult to plan, but finally after 3 site visits all details are sorted out. I have all permits in hand – and look forward to returning to Somalia after 18 months.
I will particularly focus on working NA this time, as well low bands. I have some good vertical low band antennas, and some good RX antennas. The RX antennas will hopefully be located far away from noise sources. There will be a guard protecting the beverages 24/7. Please follow my instructions when it comes to calling for geographical areas. Because there is a very short opening to NA on low bands, in particular western part of NA. If there is propagation I will only call for NA when we approach my sunrise. EU will have the best conditions and shall try to work me during their evening time on low bands. Please carefully note the QSO and QSL policy mentioned on this webpage. Free&fast LoTW is only for the good first class operators who can follow the QSO policy and DX code of conduct.
I have some additional security related expenses like armored car, armed guards etc. If you would like to contribute to protecting the low band antennas from being stolen, cut or moved – make a donation to paypal firstname.lastname@example.org
Anyone who donates in advance before DXped end will receive direct QSL and express LoTW!
This time I would also like to offer you the possibility to donate to a humanitarian fundraiser for the Norwegian organization Sabona who helps children in Africa. Please use the same paypal address but indicate your call and that it is meant as humanitarian donation. Please look for more info on this webpage.
