NEWS FROM MAYOTTE ISLAND:
TX7LX went QRT on the 21. June 2008 at 09.30 UTC. As a matter of fact I went QRT earlier as expected because I decided to spend the last two days with just my wife and without radio for additional excursions etc. We are going to depart from Mayotte the 24. June, early morning.

Here some operational facts:

I went QRT with exactly 5115 CW QSO´s in the log. That is by far more that I had expected to reach. This has been my first activation of this style and I have really enjoyed it a lot. The pile-ups were massive! Sorry about the sudden QRX/QRT-periods. This was due to problems with the power here on Mayotte. Sometimes the power went off for just a second and twice for even some 20 minutes. Once I experienced a 15 minutes power outage during a huge 40 M pile-up. This was a pain as it has also effected my logging software as well as my CW keying equipment. I always had to restart everything.

Conds on 10 M were really poor at all times and I anyway checked out this band regularily. I than decided to work those bands with the highest revenue. I just wanted to have fun :-)

I do transmit the last remaining logfiles to the logsearch host today, tue. 23rd June and they will certainly be online within a short while.

Words of thank´s go to all of you who were patient with me in the pile-up, to Chris, DL5NAM at logserach.de for a great and very reliable job, to my best radio friend ever, Ronan - F5TJP, for essential support and to my wife, who is definately the biggest supporter of my hobby. She now knows how to assemble an HF9V and how to bury radials all over the beach :-)

Rig: Icom IC-706MKIIG, 100 Watts, Ant.: HF9V, Kenwood AT-130, Logging: UCX-Log (DL7UCX), CW: ETM and microHAM

Souvenier QSL´s will be available asap.

Vy 73! TX7LX Georg
