News: 2012-12-26. Paper QSL cards and DXCC

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 →

OQRS and other news

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!

The DXpedition is going on and Team Members work very hard to be active as much as possible on all possible bands and modes. In fact they are very, very busy. As you could notice the Top Band operation started. During the first day they were transmitting and receiving on the TX antenna. They had K9AY but it does not work too good in that area: on the snad with a thick layer of shells just under the sand surface. So they were going to install another beverage. The Team received many … Continue Reading →

Online log. Top Band

We would like to inform that for some reason on one station the logging is done in a paper log. It relates mainly to 30 meters contacs. So don’t worry if you can’t find your call in the online log. If your are sure that there was no doubt about your QSO there is no need to repeat a QSO. One of the Team members works hard to retype all those paper logs into the electronic form and then to upload them to online log. Team members were going to build … Continue Reading →
