Just to recap, a team of 6 operators will be active as FT4TA from Tromelin between October 30th and November 10th. They plan to have 4 stations on the air for 10 days, on 160-10 meters using SSB, CW and RTTY. An online log will be available during the DXpedition. For more details, visit:
ANOTHER UPDATE (June 12th): Flo, F5CWU, posted on the FT4TA Web page: "A big step in the preparation of our operation has been done with sending three boxes containing the equipment. They are en route to Marseilles, where they will be shipped at the end of the month on a boat to the island of Réunion. This puts an end to several intensive weeks devoted to the manufacture of antennas and other equipment that we had to test, weigh and pack. However, the list of tasks to be performed is still long and the whole team is mobilized on different folders."
