We expect that our first radio operations will start a couple of days later than expected. Hopefully during the weekend of April 2nd. Reason for this is that the container, that carries our antennas and other stuff that we need for the station (our food&water supplies and generators), is still in the customs-process. We expect that the customs will not release the container until 4th of April! Last Thursday March 24th we evaluated the situation and the team have decided to go for plan B.
By the end of March 2011 Arie PA3A, Bas PD0CAV, Ad PA8AD and Arie PA3AN will leave for Africa to meet up with Dickson EL2DT to kick off a DXpedition to Sierra Leone. The dxpedition team will arrive in Freetown on 28 March 2011 and will be on the air by the 29th. Departure date is set for April 18th. (This dxpedition was originally planned two weeks earlier but our cargo container got delayed and because of that we lost that time-window.)
