He began setting up the station and antennas on Saturday and will finish on Sunday. The noise levels are S2-3 on the higher bands, but S5-6 on the low bands. He has an appointment on Monday with the Lesotho Communication Authority to pick up the license. He has written confirmation that a special callsign, 7P8EUDXF,  may be issued celebrating 30 years anniversary of "European DX Foundation" (EUDXF). At this time he does not plan to use 7P8AO, just depends on what is actually issued on Monday.

Thursday Update:

There have been heavy storms for two days, it started Wednesday afternoon. He's never seen so many lightening strikes within one minute. Today (Thursday) the afternoon was not bad on 15m, his most productive band. A storm is moving in as he's writing this update on Thursday afternoon. The noise level still very high below 17m. There is now a backup generator in available, so power blackouts will be just a couple of seconds, as he does need to restart the station. He is now on the air 2-3 hours a day, next week he will be on the radio more often
