T22T Tuvalu News 4 October 2023

QRT due to info from local hospital and health Dpt. We were inform about big flu virus around Tuvalu. Most people already coughing badly. This can be double after independance day parties.
In this case we decided to go back earlier than planned.
We really hope German team T2C will be able to make a good show next week or two. So far big construction company almost finish the project so they will start packing and moving heavy equipment away.
Final log will be set tomorrow
All log problems or any other issue please use dedicated email from qrz page.
And don't worry about dupes, we don't care about them at all.
Better to be sure and have 3 dupes than nothing and no qso.
Thanks for all qso's
Next one soon.

T22T Tuvalu News 26 September 2023 Part 2

It's almost impossible to work ssb and cw till this heavy equipment or us go away.

Most signals are killed by so many different things here. Something is making S9 noise and perfectly kills signals weaker than s6, s7

We are doing whatever we can to make contacts.

T22T Tuvalu News 26 September 2023

80m will start today at 4:00 UTC.

T22T Tuvalu News 25 September 2023 Part 2

We are planning to move a way from Funafuti hotel for last week of activity to one of the remote island nearby with a generator. Horrible led noise, lights, flashing bling bling island style light noise, heavy equipment usage around hotel make the operation little crazy.

Another antennas are damaged by massive loaders. We are short with space here as there is impossible to use shore line due to construction side. The place on the picture is the only one we can use it for antennas but noise level there is s9+++ on 20m down.

T22T Tuvalu News 25 September 2023

In this case we will run FT modes and move for last week somewhere a way from this place if possible.

In case you have hard time to copy us or need cw and ssb you can wait for a great, 12man team of German operstors planning to visit Tuvalu.

There is only 2 of us here on T22T and we are working as much we can.

T22T Tuvalu News 23 September 2023


Still fighting with crazy noise level from gov. buildings, solar street and hotel lights. There is no way to escape from it.... until we switch them off on the rebel way? 😂

That it's actually plan for low bands. So far 160 and 80 is out of "buiessnes"

There is also massive construction work next to our spot. They already cut coax 3 times by some of the Heavy equipment 😬

17 and 20m almost death during the day (more less 10am till 4pm local time ) very low signals and low trafic

As soon as we will finish setting up all the antennas, we will start cw and ssb activity
