Morocco - February 2018

We returned very well back in Berlin.

We take care of printing the QSL cards these days and will announce it here on this page once the cards are printed. Please refrain from asking "where is my QSL" before that. Please use our OQRS for direct and bureau QSL requests. We do not need your card.

We went QRT today in the morning after 7600 QSOs and took down all antennas. Thanks to everybody calling us and we hope we could provide you one or the other new band point or mode. 73 from the team.

There is little room for the construction of antennas and the ARRL DX Contest is something that makes life difficult for us. We continue to optimize the antenna situation. The 30m loop was replaced with a 30m vertical. 80m goes well with the vertical. We tried 160 meters. Due to the contest only one QSO so far. We will try it again this night.

Due to the proximity of the stations, we also had some defects. But we could repair all devices and everything works again. But the proximity
of the antennas to each other due to the small space makes parallel operation almost impossible. Too bad. The broken devices have painfully confirmed that.

We have arrived well on Feb 13 and could process the customs entry procedure well at the airport.


Our holiday house is situated at the edge of the small fishing village Taghozoud. Pretty nice here. There is however not much space left to build the antennas. We do the best out of it. The 30m loop and the R7 have been erected on the day of arrival. The R7 found a new place on the house roof on the second day and the 80m vertical was also built on the second day. 80 went pretty well that night with over 800 QSOs.

Working simultaneously with two stations is problematic. There is no way to separate the antennas any further due to the limited space. We'll try 160m the next nights, everything is prepared.
