70 000 QSOs in log and the game is not yet over.

Today we made a good thing.

Thanks to the partnership with the Foundation for Global Children and Mr. Zorro JH1AJT we could donate gifts to the local school and kindergarten.

After arrival at our QTH, we approached contact person Mrs. Dalila Rita, and explained that we wished to donate gifts to two local schools.
Mrs Rita visited them, talked to the supervisors, and provided us with lists of precious items they would need for their daily operation.

We rented local transport and Mrs. Rita helped us to purchase most of the wish lists items. It took as more than half a day to have all things according to the list in Portuguese. Later today, Monday the 11th of October, we visited elementary school and kindergarten. We were happy to made smiles at many children.

We are thrilled to cooperate with the Foundation for Global Children to make children in need have an easier life.

Congratulations on your great success, made even more important by your time spent with the local schools, and the gifts given to the young students and teachers! I enjoyed working S9OK on 160-80-40-30-20m at your very exotic QTH. In my younger days I worked in oil exploration, managing a seismic vessel and crew that gathered data out of Takoradi, Ghana ( Hotel Atlantic) , and Douala, Cameroun (Hotel des Cocotiers). Perhaps you flew into S9 by way of tropical Douala? I certainly do remember heavy rains ( 230+ inches of rainfall per year) and warm humid temperatures while I was there. Yet driving up a tall mountain through the clouds and into a cool more temperate clime. And in Ghana, I managed to set up a 15m quad on the roof of my hotel, operating as 9G1GS for three months. It was the year Thor Heyerdahl drifted by not too far from your QTH in his RA and RAII papyrus rafts. I had the thrill of a lifetime just listening to his daily communications with the US via ham radio, reporting on the health and welfare of his crew and the RA ( which was already becoming water-logged, and the stern of his papyrus raft was slowly sinking.) What a courageous explorer! Portuguese is a language I am comfortable with, having spent time in Portugal and Brazil during those years in oil exploration. So Muito obrigado. e um grand abraco from us DXers worldwide, and especially for the FB CW qso on 160m cw. Your sigs were up and down, but you peaked up niceltabout 90 minutes before your sunrise. through ther unusually high qrn at this end. I can only imagine how much QRN S9OK had to face on the low bands! Did you record any of your 160m qsos? And, super kudos for providing real-time logging! It prevented many many duplicate qsos needed to "be sure" we were in your log! A very valuable tool in preventing dupes! Best DX and have a safe voyage home! Your operation will live on forever in the hearts of those Sao Tome students and teachers you gifted with your time and many other gifts. de Bob W3HKK(since 1956) ex: F7AL-5A3TG-9G1GS-ON8UD-W3HKK/PY8-W3HKK/PS7
