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

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
