Libya on the air again!
A group of four German operators will be on the air from the well-
known club station 5A1A in Tripolis, Libya. Our operation will begin
on approx. November 24, 1997 and last until December 4, 1997. During
our stay, we aim to:
* produce a serious entry in the M/S category of "CQ World Wide DX
* operate on all HF bands, including 160m and WARC bands (propagation
* be active in CW, SSB, and, for the first time from Libya for many
* provide a QSO valid for DXCC to as many stations as possible.
* have two stations with amplifiers on the air simultaneously as
often as possible.
Our team consists of the following operators:
* Andreas "Andy" Lueer, DJ7IK
* Dieter Voss, DL3KDV
* Felix J. Riess, DL8OBC
* Thomas Goetzfried, DL1GGT
Additionally, we will also try to use the Internet to provide
information about our DXpedition while it is taking place. Thanks to
the support by DG2FEF, DL2FDK and DL4VBP, we will be able to upload
our logs (almost) daily to this web page, so that you can check the
validity of your QSO just a few days after we put your call in our
log book. There will be a special web form developed for this
purpose, please watch our DXpedition's WWW home page at
During our stay in Libya, you will also be able to send your
comments, suggestions, information about band openings, etc. by
e-mail! These notes will be summarized and then forwarded to Libya,
so that we can react quickly. There will also be an e-mail reflector
dedicated solely to this DXpedition. We will soon publish details
how to subscribe to this list. All OP's of this DXpedition read this
list, and you will be able to make your comments and receive all
input from other subscribers and updated reports about our plans.
Please refrain from sending sked requests to the reflector or the
individual operators, as those will not be honored. A list of
preferred frequencies will be published later on our web site and on
the e-mail reflector. We will make every effort to provide speedy
QSL'ing after we return to Germany. The QSL manager (for this
operation only!) will be DL3KDV. Please send your QSL's via the
bureau to DL3KDV or directly to:
Dieter Voss, DL3KDV
If you plan to send your QSL by mail, please include US-$1 to cover
our postal expenses. Any excess funds are welcome and will be
exclusively used to help develop Amateur Radio in Libya. Please note
that, of course, we do not require any money in exchange for a QSL
card, and will happily confirm every contact made via the QSL bureau!
In spite of this, donations will be more than welcome.
This is only a pre-release of our DXpedition information, please come
to our web page regularly to check our progress!
