Swaziland DXpedition

Roger, ZS6RJ, says there will be a 3DA0ET DXpedition to Swaziland taking place between November 18-27th.

He mentions that the team will be finalized sometime next month after everyone over on the EU side is back from their holidays. This will include their roles etc... along with the Web site and QSL information.

Roger did provide the aims of the DXpedition, which are:
• To participate in the CQWW DX CW Contest (November 23-24th) as a
Multi-2 category contestant.
• To give as many folk as possible a new entity or band/mode slot,
providing CW, RTTY and SSB.
• To address the often-neglected need for digital modes via a full time dedicated RTTY/PSK station running from the start for the entire duration of the DXpedition.
• To operate 160 meters through 6 meters.

• Equipment:
Rigs - 2X Kenwood TS-590's, 1X Yaesu FTDX3000D, & 1 or 2X Elecraft K3's
Linears - 4X Expert (3X 1K and 1X 2K FA's) linear amplifiers,
sponsored by Expert Amps USA
Antennas - 3X KIO Hexagonal Beams, 1X 75 foot vertical for 160, 80
and 40 meters TX, 1X 2 element 30 meter wire beam, 1X 160/80 meter RX antenna with preamp.

• QSL Policy/Website/Log:
- They will be announcing a Web site address shortly.
- They will be using ClubLog for band-slot chasers and for online log checking.
- They will be updating both Clublog and LoTW a couple of times each day during the operation.
- They will be providing QSL cards via both Bureau and direct.

Any queries can be directed to Roger, ZS6RJ.
