E31A E39DI News 6 May 2017

E39DI activity from Dahlak Island postponed.

E39DI postponed
Our E3 DXpedition Team will go to Dahlak Archipelago as planned, but the stay there will be shortened due to a strong suggestion by the Eritrean Government. Hence, very unfortunately, we may not have sufficient time to operate from there this time. Instead we will do research on how we can operate next time, most probably in the fall of this year, studying the terrain, facilities available, accessibility and so on. We also hope the condition will become better in the autumn. So your understanding will be highly appreciated. Please note E31A operation will be conducted from Asmara as scheduled (May 19-29).

JH1AJT, Zorro

Hi guys, keep going. Doing okay on 160 M I heard a rumor your beverage was stolen so sorry about that. That really hurts I am sure but we will keep calling every night. I am sure it is tough working through pileup with no rx antenna But we appreciate it. 73 GL

Is it possible for a RX ant on 160 to NA?.. Hundreds calling but very few getting though. Some that get through are using the Remote Ham Radio site in Maine. Any help appreciated to hear NA.

HI Guys, been listening to your signal for hours. Even before sunset we hear you well but you dont seem to be hearing any USA calling. Many calling so maybe you have some noise there? Not sure we are trying but cant break through the EU piles. Please keep trying GL 73 Mike K4PI

Thanks for putting E31A. I am most interested in 160 meters so please as much time on that band after our sunset at 23 GMT. Very heavy pileups last night so hope to see you again tonight. It is hard for us to work through EU as they are much closer to you. 73 GL Mike K4PI
