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 →

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 →
