    Patrick, ON4HIL, has put up antennas this afternoon and will start his operation tonight. He also put up a beverage that will help him to listen through the static on the lower bands. Remember he is the only operator so don’t expect him to be QRV 24/7 ! SSB is his prefered mode as he is not a very keen CW operator. He will be in Kinshasa until Tuesday July 13th. An online log is not available.

    QSL via ON4BR either via the bureau or direct. [ON4ATW]

    Patrick, ON4HIL will be QRV early next week, either 5th or 6th July, with special requested callsign 9Q50ON from Kinshasa, D.C.R. This call is to celebrate 50 years independence of Congo.

    Patrick’s visit will be a sort of scouting trip (he will be on air too) but plans are that a larger group of Belgian Hams will be setting up an expedition to Congo within a few months (no specific dates as yet). He will spend one week  in Congo overall.

    More info/updates to follow.
