This Friday around 16:00, seven members of the Polish DX team will depart in two groups from airports in Prague and Warsaw and after meeting in Dubai, we will fly together to Victoria the capital of the Seychelles We are arriving on site on Saturday, October 3, in the morning (local time). After a few hours allocated for antenna and equipment setup, the first S79SP station will appear on the bands. This year we managed to obtain our traditional suffix SP without much difficulty. We have booked a QTH on the northern tip of the main island of Mahe, where we have a broad azimuthal clear shot directly across the Indian Ocean, from JA through the rest of Asia, Europe and the US. All equipment was reused from our previous expedition; it was just carefully inspected again and packed in accordance with new baggage limits. We are bringing 5 complete stations with four solid state power amplifiers. Our antennas are: VDA on 160, phased verticals for 3.5 MHz and 7 MHz and two VDAs (we plan to install them directly on the beach), a GP7 multiband antenna and two Spiderbeams. You can see more details on our expedition web page Our operation will include all bands from 160m to 6m on CW, SSB and RTTY, 24 hours a day for 15 days non-stop. We will aim to keep 5 independent operating positions active in different rooms of the house, depending on the propagation conditions we encounter. The operating frequencies are listed on our expedition page, although they may undergo some change due to other expeditions which will also be active at that time. Please note that on the 7 MHz band we can only transmit between 7050 and 7100 kHz in accordance with the local band plan.
