COMOROS ISLAND (AF-007)​

29 January - 10 February 2018

​IK5CRH - IK5CBE - IK5BCM

They will be active on 80-10m CW, SSB, DIGI

Hi guys! We are back home safe. We wish to thank who patiently called and had qso/s with us. In spite of numerous difficulties (elecrtricity that shutted down for longtime every day, it rained cats and dogs for a couple days flooding our bungalow and shaks, spider beam fell down because of a sudden windy storm and other stuff), we have been able to get abt. 12.000 qso. During our activity we realized that our Expert 1.3k has been not enough to compensate the propagation's loss that is really located at the bottom of the cycle and does not really help the expeditions and the expeditioners. The logistic conditions have been very bad: no running water (water pipelines were cut off), mosquitoes and bugs were everywhere, local policemen, Comorian custom and the Comores TLC authority visited us for three times checking whatever we had (RTX, antennas, wires etc) and taking pictures of all our equipment, goats spread out and some rat too! We were located at the Maloudja resort in the N.W. of the main island. It was surely a five stars location once it was managed by the French. Then it has been given up by them as soon as the Comores decided to become an autonomous country and now it is almost a "ghost" resort but suitable for our purposes. In fact it has been nice for us to set up the antennas on the beautiful beach located in front of us where white crabs digged holes at the foot of the antennas poles and it was enjoyable to see them in the night fastly running on the white sand once we went there to switch the 40m. 1/2 wave wire dipole into the 80 m. one. We stayed there for 12 days often working with two stations but calling hopeless sometimes too! By the way we are happy to have visited a country (the Comores) where the population is almost 100% muslims and very gentle and accomodating. We will be also very happy to provide any information about the Comorian guy (Omar) who helped us all the times we needed. In the meantime....bye for now...73's de D68I crew (IK5CRH - John, IK5BCM - John  and IK5CBE - Beppe).
