9L1A Sierra Leone News

Hi Alex,

just to let you know that I am finalizing my tour in Sierra Leone, will be returning on 1st June, so another month. In recent weeks I have a lot of problems with electricity, local supply is less reliable and the generator keeps giving us hard time, so I spend some weekends without electricity/ham radio. I've used that time to install (finally) a spiderbeam, it is not where it was meant to be because the backyard is a rocky 45 degrees slope, I've managed to install the frame but it was impossible to do elements because of no access. Finally, I've installed it under my bedroom, I have a nice view of the antenna below me, HI. The house blocks unfortunately EU/JA/Russia, but gives me extra gain towards USA. My rig is a K3 transceiver, RM 300 Plus 300w amplifier and wire verticals on a spiderpole (40/20/15/10m), Inverted V for 160/80/30/17/12/6m only 7m high and also a five band Spiderbeam, only 5m above the generator house.
