eXTReMe Tracker


DJ9KH is returning to Ascension Island from February 22nd to March 6th for his 3rd expedition to Ascension Island. This time we will have 3 operators: Werner DJ9KH, Axel DK9BDN and Christian DL6KAC. We try again to give out as many band-points as possible on the low bands.

Keep fingers crossed that conditions will be good enough. Our antennas are tested and are good performers on 40 to 160 meters. There will be also activity on 60m again. 

As we will have only very limited access to the Internet the logupdates will happen every second day or so. Probably PACTOR will be an alternative.

DK1IP in Germany will be our pilot-station.
