TL8AO - Central African Republic DXpedition Nov 11 - Nov 22






I was active in Central African Republic as TL8AO between 11 Nov - 22 Nov 2016.

I made 14200 QSOs in 10 days, despite poor conds and a thunderstorm that broke my beam and 80m dipole.


At the start of DXped TL was ranked

  • 50 world wide mixed
  • 19 world wide CW


Operation was 80-10m, and I used the following equipment.

  • Radio Elecraft K3
  • Radio TS480SAT as backup
  • Amplifier Ameritron ALS 500m 400 W output.
  • 2 element beam on 14-21-28 MHz up 25meter
  • Wire dipole on 80,40,30,17,12m up 22 meter
  • Wire backup antennas on all frequencies
