NEWS UPDATE – TU7C QRT with 52500 QSOs logged.

MARCH 19 – The CW Low Band team says thanks for some interesting nights on 80 and 160. Very interesting and challenging CONDX from here. On 160, TX ant was Inverted L GP. RX was B.O.G.s approx. 70 meters long (one to North America, one to EU and JA).
Power was only 600 watts. The big AMP broke down the first evening ! Now at the end, we are tired, but hope that there are many happy Low Banders.

MARCH 15 – The whole team thanks you all for the 30000 QSO and the great fun in the pileups.

MARCH 13 — The DXpedition is going forward, the propagation seems good.
The team suffers from warm and humid climate.

MARCH 11 — Despite some luggage lost,  being late,  power failures and one amplifier getting “weird”, we are delighted to annouce more than 5000 QSO in 23h in our log.

Band conditions are good, 10m less so. We still didn’t start the 6m station. Receiving antennas were installed today, so we will be QRV on 160 tonight.

Despite some small sickness, the operators are at their maximum. The temperature is very hot, and humidity is 90%.

We hope that RTTY and PSK on less common bands make most people happy.

Feel free to post a mesage on our guestbook or to contact our pilots.

MARCH 10 — A lot of luggage hasn’t been loaded on yesterday’s flight and is missing. They hope to get it today on the next Paris-Abidjan flight.

All the antennas are set up, one station and 700w PA and also barefoot other on 18155 ssb, 10104 cw and 14070 psk.

The AC distribution is uncertain and the local QRM is very heavy. Please be patient and stay tuned.

MARCH 9 – The TU7C team is cleared for take-off! TU7C website
