21 April 2017

Núria EA3WL and Josep EA3BT informs DxCoffee readers:

Dear friends,
In less than a week after our arrival from our last DXpedition to Guinea-Bissau as J5B & J5W (iota AF-020) we are pleased to show you the QSL card that is ready for printing.
We achieved a great success, with more than 19.500 QSO in our log, after 7,5 days of full operation, with just 2 stations working 20 hours a day. We were active from 10 to 80 meters, SSB, CW & RTTY.
Thanks to all those who believed in our project and made it possible.
More information about QSL card policy can be found at our QRZ web pages (J5B or J5W).
Hope you like it.
