Update September 18, 2023: Preparation of equipment for TO8FH expedition ended this weekend at Radio Club de Provins F6KOP (France). Computers are up to date (thanks F1ULQ and F4DLM), bags and suitcases were completed, closed, and weighed one last time (thanks F4AJQ and F8GGV). All that remains is to prepare the list of equipment for each piece of luggage intended for Customs.

Update September 16, 2023: After the success of our satellite activity last year from D60AE where we made 660 QSOs with only 300 mW, we have decided to renew the experience from TO8FH. There has been very few satellite activities in Mayotte and to our knowledge this could be a premiere on QO-100. TO8FH will therefore be active (around 900) on the QO-100 satellite from LH27mc. We also plan to do FT8 and CW. The equipment is composed, in uplink, of a Kuhne 2424 converter + FT817, and in downlink, of a LNC10 QO-100 with a 80 cm dish + FT857. Our satellite specialist is Olivier, HB9GWJ.

Update August 24, 2023: There are other expeditions at the same time as TO8FH in October. To establish their band plan, the team took care of this already and has now published (like W8S and T2C) frequencies and recommendations 

Update August 20, 2023: Equipment preparation for the TO8FH DXpedition has begun at Radio Club de Provins F6KOP (France). It’s not all ready yet, but it’s moving forward. Thanks to F6KOP members who worked already in these preparations, especially F4AJQ, F5PBM, F4JCT, F4IEL, F5GSJ, F5GVA.

Update August 17, 2023: To benefit from a fast LoTW confirmation it has become more and more common to have to pay or, otherwise, to wait 6 months to a year (or even more). F6KOP does not support this practice. TO8FH log will be on LoTW as soon as the team return from their expedition (subject to a short delay for the usual corrections). LoTW will therefore be free and immediate for everyone.

If you want to help TO8FH, everyone is free to make a donation (without any obligation). Donors via Club log of an amount equal or greater than 6 euros will automatically benefit of free OQRS request for their direct QSL. You can also help via PayPal without asking for the QSL and you will thus appear on the list of donors on our website.
