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.
