DxCoffee has received pertinent information from Dior, ZS6DJD regarding the future DXpedition to Mozambique, set for the first part of May.
Daniel, ZS6JR and Dior, ZS6DJD will be operating from Mozambique for seven to ten days starting on the 3th or 4th of May, 2012. All of this depends on how quickly equipment gets set up and antennas get in the air. Current plans have them setting up next to a small lake in Shai Shai, Mozambique, approximately 400 km north of the capital. At present, this ham radio duo plans on operating with vertical antennas while using the lake for ground.
Daniel and Dior plan on operating most bands from 40 through 10 meters. However, Daniel has also decided to take a Hex beam antenna along as well which may see some use. Given the chance, they also hope to work both 6 and 80 meters. As of this writing, these two South Africans were still waiting on a callsign which they hope to have in hand soon, likely C91JD, C91DJ or C91DN.
Conditions allowing, you can listen for them on the following bands and frequencies: 20 meters on or near 14.200, 14.195 or 14.210; on 15 meters at 21.280, 21.275,
21.270. On 10 meters you can try 28.450, 28.470 or 28.500. They also indicate they’ll be active on 17 and 12 meters, but do not report specific frequencies.
We wish Daniel and Dior all the best, good Dx and good DxCoffee!
