At the Mbabane ClinicDue to circumstances beyond my control I was not able to set up my station and will return to Hungary sooner than planned.

I will leave my equipment in the country and return at a future date. Unfortunately, I am not able to get on the air or participate in my planned humanitarian projects. Donors to my humanitarian project are refunded.

 

 

 

 

 

Swaziland 3DA0On Thursday Sept. 13, 2018 I will leave Budapest for the Kingdom of eSwatini (Swaziland) and arrive on 14th late afternoon.

I will set up the station on Saturday Sept 15th. I plan to enter the Africa All Mode International DX Contest, single operator, all band, high power CW only category, which is held this weekend. The contest rules can be found at: http://www.sarl.org.za/Web3/Members/DoDocDownload.aspx?X=201712180812348XdiUz5yFy.PDF

Station setup: Elecraft K3s, KPA-500 power amplifier and vertical antenna. I will be active until the end of September mostly on CW, RTTY and FT8 (only Fox / Hound mode, please only use WSJT-X Version 1.9.x.)

After the contest, if the Internet is available the log will be uploaded in real time to the Log Search and OQRS system at HA5AO.com

QSL via HA5AO. Please do not send your QSL via buro, use the OQRS system for confirmation via the buro.

I continue the humanitarian fund raising for the orphaned and at risk children of eSwatini. I pay all expenses, travel, accommodation, food, overweight luggage fees, from personal funds.

One hundred percent of your donation is used for humanitarian purposes, school fee, food, clothing, and school supplies. Your donation will help change a child's life.

You may use the donate button at my website.

PLittle Swaziland Big Adventureista HA5AO will arrive eSwatini (Swaziland) on 14 September, late afternoon. He plans to operate during his free time between 16 - 28 September from the Mountain Inn Resort at Mbabane. He received the 3DA0AO license and an LotW certificate.

Pista will operate 80 – 10 meters using a Hustler 6 BTV vertical antenna with 17 and 12 meter add-on elements, CW, RTTY and FT8. He is bringing an Elecraft K3 with the KPA 500 amplifier. Logsearch will be available on HA5AO.com. His plans include testing a new feature of the PDXG QSL Management Platform, the uploading of QSOs in real time.

While in-country he will travel to rural areas visiting villages, schools and orphanages to deliver school supplies to orphaned children. He is interested in making a long term donation agreement to pay school fees for several orphaned children.

Pista is paying all expenses from personal funds. However he would appreciate donations through his website. Any donations received will be used only for humanitarian purposes.
