holiday style. Operation is planned from the town and the beach of
Orikum in the Bay of Vlora. Some lighthouse and/or WFF activity
might also take place in this period, please listen for operator's
comments on possible LH or WFF references, if any. This is not a
DXpedition, but a family holiday with XYL Marta, ZA/HA9WM and two
5 year old daughters, so time for amateur radio is limited and of
lower priority. 50 MHz and portable battery operation will get some
special focus. QSL via LoTW and eQSL. If possible, please do not
send QSL cards, paper QSL (both direct and bureau) will be
available by an OQRS (Online QSL Request System) to be launched and
announced later. Bureau cards will be sent out using GlobalQSL.

to the Park from the New Orleans area.
    June 29--Drive to DL88 and set up camp.  We expect to be operational 
by about Noon....give or take.
    June 30--Operate from DL88.

band is "dead" for Es, we will operate FSK441(First Sequence always), 
also on 50.150MHz.  This is the same frequency we used in EL58.  Because 
of the battery power problem, we may not be able to operate all night

the late evening and charging both our battery packs.  In any case, we 
intend to be on MS in the early AM hours.
