RTTY RU warm up party.....

For those of you WriteLoggers who may be planning to participate in RTTY Round Up, you may want to take part in the two upcoming NCCC practice sessions - it is open to anyone. For newbies, like me, it will give you a chance to find out what you don't know before RTTY RU on Saturday.


GOAL: Final equipment/SW shakedown and operational practice

DATE/TIME: Thu 4 Jan, 1900-1930PST
Fri 5 Jan, 1900-2000PST

A little longer on Fri to offer more operational practice for those who
are new to this (and those who may not be new but whose memory regarding
equipment/SW configuration and operation may be a bit challenged since
the last time we did RTTY)?

FORMAT: Standard RTTY RU Rules. Dupes OK with one intervening Q,
back-to-back on different bands OK too.

BANDS: 20, 40, 80, probably in that order.

Burkina Faso Dxpedition 6-20 January 2007

more info here
The Burkina Faso 2007 project began in February 2006 during the last evening that the 5H1C team spent on Zanzibar island. We had targetted a few semi-rare African locations mainly located North of the equator. The intend was to get closer to the main ham populations, hence compensating for the lack of propagation mainly impacting the higher bands during our stay in Tanzania. Recent DXpeditions to some of these targets further reduced the list and our choice went to Burkina Faso.
