6O6O DXpediton NOTES:

Great DXpedition guys! Now QRT...

UPDATE: Thurs Jan 11 2018 19:404 UTC : It's been an intense first week - missing antennas kits, very heavy QRN, unable to fully install some antennas and locals removing them, armed guards to escort them for some of the antenna installs, a malfunctioning power amp and ... well, you get the idea! In spite of everything though - they are doing a heck of a job under very tough conditions!

UPDATE: Weds Jan 3 2018 19:24 UTC:
6O6O is now reported to be QRV! ... For live cluster spots and other info see table at left... It was reported that they may have lost an antenna bag and are also experiencing excessive RX noise on some bands.

UPDATE: Weds Jan 3 2018 15:54 UTC : Kenneth (LA7GIA) reports that they have landed in Somalia a few hours ago and are proceeding to get the antennas installed. He also says that they plan to be QRV later this evening. Will post an update when 6O6O is QRV.

Ranked as number 54 on Clublog's "most wanted" list - here is a great chance to put Somalia in the log!

This DXpedition to a very dangerous and risky place is being put together by Kenneth, LA7GIA and Adrian, KO8SCA. According to DX-World.net they indicated that while this will be an all band / all mode event - the primary focus will be CW.

                        to Somalia

Also from the DX-World.net article they report:

"In conjunction with this trip we organize a fundraiser for Doctors Without Borders in Somalia. All donations received will be earmarked to DWOB in Somalia. Donations are not sought for the ham side of the DXpedition, but we hope everyone will consider a small contribution to the fundraiser. Contributions can be given either by paypal 6o6o@la7gia.com or when doing OQRS through M0OXO website...."
