6W - Senegal
Operators Ron/PA3EWP and Tom/GM4FDM will team up again, but this time from the Le Calao rental shack in the region of Somone about 70km south of Dakar in Senegal for 2 weeks between January 26th and February 9th. Both operators have their license and will sign 6W/homecall. Activity will be on 160-10 meters, but operations will be concentrated on CW on the lower bands. Antennas are a Titanex vertical for 160/80m, 4 square for 40m, verticals for 30/17m and monobanders are available for 20/15/10m. They "may" also be active on 6 meters using a K3 radio and a 5 element yagi. Also, some RTTY operations are expected from Tom. The operators will attempt to be on the air during the sunrise/sunset for USA and Japan and hope that the path to Europe will not prove too troublesome. Tom will attempt to upload ONLY his logs to LoTW if the InterNet is available, if not, they will be submitted immediately upon his return home. QSL 6W/PA3EWP via PA7FM. QSL 6W/GM4FDM via GM4FDM, direct or by the Bureau and LoTW.

Latest News from Lance W7GJ :
In December, I had the pleasure of working K7XQ, ZS6WAB, ZS6NK, K6MYC, K6EMI, OK1RD, N8JX, K9MU, K4YMQ, K4RX, ET3BN, ON4IQ, OA4TT, VK4ABW, N9CJK. Many of those contacts were during the second weekend of the annual ARRL EME Contest, which always seems to boost activity even if many stations do not qualify to submit logs according to the ARRL rules. Especially exciting during that contest weekend was my contact with ET3BN, which was my EME DXCC #99, and a USA ?First? on 6m.
The first weekend in January saw optimum EME conditions again, and I worked E51WL, GM4WJA, K7XQ and ZL3NW. Of particular interest was the contact with E51WL in the North Cook Islands, which was my EME DXCC #100, and took my 6m DXCC total up to 150.
