    D44KZ - D44LD - D44LA - Pedra Badejo - Santiago Island

    D44KZ Team will be active from Pedra Badejo, Santiago Island, IOTA AF - 005, Cape Verde, Cabo Verde.
    Team - PA3CQE D44LD, PE1BBI D44KZ, PE1ITR D44LA.
    They will operate on 6, 2m and also some activity on 70 mHz, CW, SSB, EME, FSK44, MSK144, JT65, FT8 and other digital modes.
    QSL via home calls.
    Information from team:
    We have booked the location and from 14 july 2019 to 24 july 2019 we will be QRV from Cabo Verde (D4). Our location will be maidenhead locator: HK85FD. This is on the east of the Island of Santiago near Pedra Badejo.

    We will be active on 50MHz and 144MHz. Maybe also on 70MHz but that is pending. We are mainly a VHF Tropo, Meteorscatter and Ionospheric radio propagation DXpedition. Our station is EME capable so in between we are doing some moonbounce at moonrise and moonset when the moon is in our groundgain antennalobs. But moonbounce is not our main activity.
    Another main activity will be FM-DX listening on 88 - 108MHz.

    This expedition is a major challenge because increased radio propagation conditions are needed to make QSO's. Of course we hope for that, but it is not certain whether those conditions will also be there during the period that we are QRV.

    Expedition members are: Frans PA3CQE, Gerard PE1BBI and Rob PE1ITR.
