DXpedition to Mauritius
Date of operation
Starting at Jacky's place (3b8cf) 24-09-1999 untill 03-010-1999
We will try to putup all HF bands in the air incl WARC.
3B8/PA3EPD will be activated from Mauritius from 27th of september till october 3rd on 144mhz EME.
Station equipment :
Pse call me on random only when my call is copied solid, if signal is coming in well with me, a qso
is probably made. Stations with a short window (no mather the size of your antenna) can make skeds via lionel.
Freq. for sked stations will be 144.075 My freq. 144.077 always eastern sequence (0-2 4-6 etc) 2 minute sequences.
In case I will be transmitting 1 min. sequences, I take always even sequence (0-1 2-3 etc etc).
Random stations will be listened for on 144.079 to 144.080 In case of a pile up (I hope) 144.080 and higher will be listened for. Any station who is calling on 144.077 will not be worked!!!
Callsign will be 3B8/pa3epd for 98% of the time. In some cases you might find 3b8/pb0ait or 3b8/pa0vha to be on the air too!! This a bonus, I will be off to somewhere, take it easy on them pse, they are HF-ops.
The system is tested and 100% OK, but there are many variables that can go wrong on site. Keep moonnet standby for latest information, if an announcement is made by me, I will be there 100% and your are NOT coming out of your bed (or day off) for nothing, the signal might be weak only.
Hopefully I will see many off you soon.
Gl and see you soon
Michael , 3b8/pa3epd
