3DA0 - Swaziland - 04.04.12

3DA0FC Expedition (Hawane KG53ms)

It's all systems go, I just have a last few things to test before I pack and go.
There have been a few changes to my intended plans, but it seems my final configuration will be as follows:
6M operation should commence Friday afternoon the 6th and will terminate Monday evening the 9th of April 2012.
Antenna:  3 element Yagi M2-6M3SS on 8 metre mast Feed line:  LMR-400
Rig:  IC-756 Pro 3
Amp:  SPE 1K-FA (400W)
Interface: RigExpert
Computer:  Acer Aspire One with 3G Modem
Modes:  SSB, CW and WSJT modes
I will attempt to monitor the ON4KST cluster to monitor activity and arrange skeds.
If all goes according to plan I will be available in the early mornings for Meteor Scatter(MS) QSOs and from about midday onwards I will be concentrating on TEP/F2 openings to Europe and elsewhere.
Best Regards.
