A multi-national team of nine operators, consisting of:

Franz - DJ9ZB

Jay - JA1TRC

Yuki - JH1NBN

Kazu - JH1OGX

We are very excited about this announcement as it has taken many months of careful planning and negotiations to bring about this amateur radio event. Our DXpedition call sign will be assigned to us upon our arrival in the capitol of Asmara.

We will use four transceivers consisting of two Elecraft K3 radios with the KPA500 amplifiers and two Kenwood TS590 transceivers with the ACOM 1010 amplifiers.

We will use beam antennas for the high bands (10-20 meters) and four verticals for the low bands (30-160 meters) We will try to work every area as much as possible.

Our QSL Manager is Tim - M0URX.
