As you know we got first batch of QSL cards from the printer house on 31th of December. We worked very hard during New Year’s Eve to make you happy with our beautiful QSL card. During 14 hours shift a few thousand of QSLs were dispatched completing all directs and OQRS requests sent by 30th of December In addition all those QSOs had been uploaded into e-QSL, and LOTW systems (because of long queue wait additional week for processing) . We got big help from my wife Barbara and local Hams SP6AEG … Continue Reading →
We would like to inform that we received QSL cards from the printer and we are going to answer the majority of directs on December 31, the last day of 2012. So if you have sent a direct or made OQRS request, check your mail-box soon. Your 5T0SP QSL card is just starting its way to you.
We hope you had great, calm, peaceful Christmas. We had no time to publish any news as we were very busy with other things. We would like to inform you that we have prepared two projects of QSL cards. It was possible thanks to Radek SP5ADX from CoolQSL, who worked hard to prepare QSL designs despite of the Christmas time. So just before the New Year paper QSL cards will be ready and we will start to send them at the begining of 2013. So expect your paper QSL card in January … Continue Reading →
We would like to inform that OQRS is up and running. Please use the entry form placed above. The OQRS link is also available in the log search page. So you can first check if you are in the log and then request QSLs. We have a lot of pictures and our friends (who are helping us to design a QSL) are just making a review of them to find photos which are the most suitable for the QSL project. We hope to have the first bunch of QSL cards ready … Continue Reading →
The Team is on the way home. They were active on bands till the very last moment so in the end they had to put down the last station and antennas very quickly. And there was no time for sending pictures or news. In the end they had to say “Good By” to Jean 5T0JL, member of the Team and real Friend. Besides DXing aspects a very important aspect of DXpeditions is meeting new people and building friendship. And remember – Jean lives in Mauritania and he is very active on … Continue Reading →
Today during a QSO Jurek SP3GEM who was operating 5T0SP on 15m/SSB said that there are more than 80k QSOs in the log. Team mebers are really very happy they were able to log so many stations possibly giving a new one on a band and/or mode. Other news are that they had to start to dismantle some antennas earlier than expected. There is a lot of salt in the air (they are at the seaside) and there are visible signs of corrosion on the antennas. So it takes more time to … Continue Reading →
The DXpedition is coming to the end but of course we are still active on bands. And we are all in perfect mood all the time. Two days ago we had over 71k QSOs in the log. We receive requests to be active at a given time on a given band and/or mode.. Sorry we can’t help everyone. It’s impossible to be everywhere. It’s the part of the game… Two days ago we had a visit of the army officials who visited us together with a press reporter. We demonstrated QSOs on … Continue Reading →
Last days we have changed a little the configuration of the 40m 2el vertical. The effect was amazing: several dozen VK/ZL stations logged one after another. We also had bad news: unfortunately two tranceivers are damaged. But even with limitations we are still active on other transceivers trying to maximize the number of QSOs in our log. Keet calling us on all bands/modes you need 5T. We are here to work you!
As had been mentioned before, all possible typing errors in callsigns in the log will be corrected after the DXpedition. All notices about miscopied callsigns are recorded and they will be reviewed right after the DXpedition. We are sorry but there is no way to make corrections during the operation. So if you are afraid about your QSO and you can’t find your call in the log, call 5T0SP again. And again: 30 meters QSOs are very often logged on paper. They are little by little typed in into the electronic log … Continue Reading →
