We decided to set up our shacks at the Club du lac Hotel for our operations. The hotel already knows radio amateurs for previous dx-peditions and offer a good location without QRM(we hope) on low bands. But everybody knows for sure that the Equator has normal QRM ….hi
On the road again, and this time on the road to Africa to reach their next QTH: just on the banks of the Tanganyika banks, Bujumbura. As a matter of fact, the leader Antonio, IZ8CCW and the co-leader Gabriele, I2VGW, are happy to announce to the DXer Community the new adventure with the international MDXC team: Burundi 2017 . The license is already in the leaders’ hands as 9U4M and they plan to be on air from November 6 to November 17th .
According to the evaluations that they have done, they are confident to give to a lot of dxers the possibility to work this Country in the Low bands, WARC and especially the Digital modes.
At the moment the team is built with experienced operators: 20 people coming from eight countries. On the air will be five stations, in several modes, around the clock.
For any further news and updates please stay tuned: the official web site of this new great adventure is coming. Of course any donation and sponsorship will be very very appreciated by the entire team!
