9J2LA Zambia News 8 February 2020

Some good news have to be shared today. After an endless long process to get our zambian license we are finally there. A big thanks to Mario 9J2MYT (IK1MYT) and Brian 9J2BO in Lusaka who helped us achieving this important goal.The license has been received just before the weekend. We are concentrating on our “boy scout trip” now.Our QTH in Zambia is secured, bus transportation from Lusaka airport to the lodge is booked and flight tickets are purchased. We are still working on customs clearance details, but we hope that we have it sorted out soon. We will leave Oslo the 4th of March at18:45 with a scheduled arrival at Lusaka airport the day afterat 12:30 local time. Let’s hope that the customs clearance will go smooth and don’t make too much of a headache … however, you never know. The bus ride to the QTH is short of 2 hours, depending on traffic.
Furthermore there is an ongoing power shedding through the whole country right now as it has been over the last few months. The reason is that the country has some issues with one of the main power electricity generators. According to our last conversation with the lodge owner, they suffer 4 hours of power cut each evening. For this reason, we are also in the process of purchasing a portable electricity generator as a backup. The rainy season that comes late this year, has been rather dry as well.

Stay tuned for more updates coming up soon!
