NEW! 5H2DK will be QRV from Sanya Juu, Tanzania (KI86mt) Feb 25. to Mar 23. 2014 with same setup as last time. Hope for less QRN on 40m. If so, I will also try to be QRV on 80m. http://www.saunalahti.fi/arnyl

5H2DK was QRV from Moshi, Tanzania (KI86qq) Oct 2nd to Oct 26th 2012. I was also QRV from Kilingi Primary School, Sanya Juu (KI86mt), Tarangire National Park (KI86af) and Karatu near Ngorongoro National Park (KI76tp) as 5H2DK/P using a portable setup Oct 18th to Oct 25th. I operated on SSB only.

The main setup included an ICOM 706 mkIIG boosted with an SG-500 to emit full 100W, permitted, A3S tribander (10/15/20) 11m up and multiband dipole for 12/17/40 m bands, feeding point 11m up. The portable setup included the ICOM 706, an AH-4 wire antenna tuner, a 6m telescopic fishing stick or 8m wire on branches of trees.

I found that quite a few stations made multiple contacts on the same band, why, as I uploaded my log, over a crapy Internet connection, as soon as possible after each pile-up. Stations making duplicates steal air time from those, who may be looking for their first one. In addition the duplicaters increase the pile-up noise, which slows down the QSO rate and makes life harder for the DX operator. There was even quite a few stations making duplicates during the same pileup - rude behavior. Next time, I have to use a contest log that can show duplicates on the fly without need for mouse clicking.

QSL info: via buro or direct via my home call OH2NNE (see QRZ.com). I prefer $ for return stamp. The QSL return stamp $s, received so far, were converted to 121 school books for Kilingi Primary School, Sanya Juu. Thanks for your contribution. The logs 5H2DK and 5H2DK/P have been uploaded to LoTW and Club Log.

Thanks to everybody for making my expedition a success.
