C9 - Angola - 4.26.11


Good Morning,
I have recently started working in Mozambique - grid KG64fb - and am slowly getting a 6m station together - every piece of equipment has to be smuggled in over many trips :) . In the coming week starting 1/5/2011 i will be transmitting low power PSK31 during the evenings and during weekends when not at work. 50w into dipole.
At this stage there is no allocation for 50Mhz in Mozambique so will keep the QRO (1kw into 2 6M5 yagi) for when the band opens up and hope no one complains. So if people periodically listens in my direction i would appreciate any feedback.
Kind Regards, Andre C91UA/ZS5UA
