Mauritius update

Robert, M0RCX, should be active as 3B8/M0RCX from Mauritius until May 28th.
He says that his trip to Mauritius is more as a tourist with his family and not seen as a DXpedition.
His power will be limited to 100 watts, and he hopes to have a hexbeam, a wire beam for 6m (possibly made from the island's bamboo), as well as a delta loop and long wire available for his activity.
His operating position will be close to the city center of Port Louis in the North West of the Island. He does plan/hopes to operate at least 3 hours a day on the following HF Phone bands: 40/20/17/15/12/10 meters.
He is also planning to operate on some PSK and JT65 making some contacts with low to modest power levels (NO amp).
Robert has been asked about moonbounce over the horizon but thinks this may be optimistic with only 100 watts. He will set up a schedule on under 3B8M0RCX. He has already posted suggested frequencies on his FaceBook page:
CW - 7012, 10116, 14012, 18086, 21012, 24906 and 28012 kHz
SSB - 7095, 14210, 18120, 21255, 24945 and 28440 kHz
RTTY - 7040, 10137, 14077, 18106, 21098, 24920 and 28110 kHz
PSK - 7035, 10132, 18100, 21080, 24920 and 28120 kHz
6m - 50102/CW and 50115/SSB
Robert also mentions, "I plan to live over there in about four years so
hopefully I'll get a feel for it. QTH is inland about a mile from the ocean
but there is a mountain behind me (east) this is why I wish to push my
signals over to the west."
QSL via M0RCX, direct, by the Bureau or eQSL.
