FT5Z, Amsterdam Island

The FT5ZM team continues to be active from Amsterdam Island possibly until February 9th.
They landed on the island on January 24th, and were expected to have 18 days to set up, conduct the DXpedition, and tear down for departure which means they would leave on February 10th.
Activity has been on all bands, 160-10 meters.
Operations during last week were mainly CW and SSB, but on Sunday, the FT5ZM Web site reported: "Earlier today, Ralph, K0IR, started RTTY
