TX5T DX Pedition News

Rains, mild winds. Still haven’t gotten up 80/160 antenna. We are squeezed for space. The “beach” is non existent. So 80/160 is a “maybe” Literally hung the hexbeam from a tree about 4 meters high! Working well however!

Our QTH locator is BG66ed….. for those interested in beam headings, etc. or 23.51 S and 147.38 W

I can't locate their web site or find out what freqs they are operating on. No info on QRZ.com or here as to where that info is.

The team did a great job. These kinds of operations have to be tough, but a lot of fun. Sadly there were some pirates trying to join in the fun, but hopefully everyone worked around them.

Thank you for the QSO! It was especially gratifying using my home made 18m hex beam w/ 100w but the credit goes to your cw op, very effective and efficient! Enjoy your stay.

The best DXpedition I have worked in years. Excellent operators, BIG signals and great ears. You guys are top notch! So far I have you on 15,17,20,30,40 & 80 and I'm only using an 80M horizontal Delta Loop. Bravo! Tom N8ZI

You guys rock!! I'm currently restricted to a 40m vertical, and you were spotted on 20m. Usually my vertical doesn't play too well on 20m - but - your op was able to pull my CW signal out quickly. I think I called less than 10 times before a QSO was made. That is the least number of tries for any DXpedition I've worked! Thanks for the contact, and have fun!! Mick KB9ERU

Worked you guys on 30M. Thank you very much. Good dx! While SR and/or SS are good for it on low bands, wish you many chances as well to admire them as the beautyful pics suggest. 73. Pierre. F3WT
