5X3K Sep 28-Oct 6, 2023HF  5X - Uganda37 Oct 3, 2023
Update October 3, 2023: So far, the beverage doesn’t perform as we expected. We focused on 40 and 80 the last two nights, but the number of contacts is relatively low. We will try to build better beverage in a single direction. Local noise is too big to be efficient on those bands. Working on 80 is like digging out callsigns on 160 from the other side of the globe. Yesterday, we prepared the third Spiderbeam. The antenna setup is almost ready. We still do not have the DX Commander. We do not have land as we would need for our antennas, and they are close to each oth... [Read more]

Update October 1, 2023: One more week until we leave – everything is prepared. We are in contact with Dom T22T, who is currently staying at our planned QTH, the Funafuti Lagoon Hotel. There is a lot of unexpected traffic around the hotel as well as electrical and acoustic noise due to large land claim activities including heavy construction machinery and workers from overseas. Due to T22T’s current experience with high noise and limited space due to the construction work, we will carefully check viable solutions and possibly look for a second QTH (probably ... [Read more]

XW0LP Starting May 20, 2023HF  XW - Laos26 Sep 30, 2023
Update September 30, 2023: To make FT8 QSOs more easy (with my 100 watts and simple wire antennas), I will operate on DXpedition frequencies. But unlike a DXpedition, since I have to teach online, sleep and occasionally get too drunk to play radio, I won’t be calling CQ all the time! To make it easier to know if I’m listening on a particular band just check my website. If I am QRV and listening, then my web page will tell you which frequency I am listening on right now.
