9U4M PRESS RELEASE #4

BURUNDI 2017 by MDXC Team

Great news especially for the lovers of digital modes: The international MDXC  team working to build the new dxpedition from Burundi with the callsign 9U4M, will be on air also with the new FT8 digital mode. Called FT-8 (Franke-Taylor design, 8FSK modulation) will be another good way to catch the weak signals. As a matter of fact a weak signal mode that is not as sensitive to JT-65/9 but definitely something that will work when voice and CW will not.

We remind that the team will be on air from November 6th to November 17th just on the banks of the Tanganyika Lake, Bujumbura. to operate 24/24 hours with 5 stations with a particular focus to low bands, WARC and “old and new”digi modes

Antonio, IZ8CCW, leader and Gabriele, I2VGW, co-leader of the team, will share this new dxpedition with others 18 members from eight Countries. For any further news and updates please visit the official website http://www.mdxc.org/9u4m/

Of course any donation and sponsorship will be very very appreciated by the entire team!
