Malawi DXpedition update

Due to work commitments, the Black Mamba Contest & DXpedition Team has changed the original timing of the 7QAA DXpedition from November 2014 to the following fixed dates in March 2015:
10 member CW team active between March 11-21st
10 member SSB/RTTY team active between March 22nd-April 1st
Each team will operate 4 stations on the air together. Equipment will
be 2x Elecraft K3's, 2x Kenwood TS-590's and 4x Expert 1K or 1.3K FA
linear amplifiers. Antennas are 4x NA4RR hexbeams at 40 feet each with
Yaesu rotators, 2x inverted L's with remote MFJ 1.5Kw tuners for 40
through 160 meters and K9AY receiving antennas. The SSB team will also
participate in the CQWW WPX SSB Contest, and also operate some additional CW and PSK. Both teams will be active from 160 through 10 meters.
Daily free LoTW and Clublog uploads will be provided, and we will use the band-slot tracking feature in Clublog to promote a competitive spirit amongst the DX fraternity. They feel due to the extended 20 day operating period there will be ample time to work the "little pistols" as well as the band-slot chasers.
QSL cards will be available after the event too - details of QSL manager route to follow.
Roger, ZS6RJ
