Picture: Ndali vanilla factory, Nr Fort Portal
QRV since Nov 2007. Active from University of the Mountains of the Moon (MMU) in Fort Portal, Western Uganda and (occasionally) Kampala (the capital) when on trips from UK. Fort Portal is in the foothills of the beautiful Rwenzori Mountains which form the border with the Congo (about 25 kms away). It is a fertile area with a fine climate - a major local cash crop is tea. MMU is an independent (non-profit) university owned by the communty of the area. Last trip was November/December 2012
Main ham radio challenges are frequent thunderstorms and static which make low bands hard work. Also erratic power - which frequently goes off without any warning and may stay off for many hours.It can provide as little as 160 volts (instead of 240). Internet connectivity has improved greatly in the past 5 years. I prefer CW but am also QRV on SSB and digimodes.
Use LOTW but not eQSL. Direct QSLs please via home call G3RWF. Please enclose an IRC or $2 (sorry but $1 no longer covers the cost of a stamp anywhere). Also bureau OK but will take a while (and please put as many QSOs as possible on one card to reduce weight and make replying easier). I only reply to QSOs for each new band.
Please do not e mail me to ask me to check my log - except in unusual circumstances.I load LOTW regularly - please check that first. I would rather be on the air than hunting through my log when I am in Uganda! Thanks
I actively support the DX Code (http://www.dx-code.org/link.htm)
QRT on 10 Dec 2012. All logs on LOTW. No return date yet in mind.
