Low Band Operations Will be Focus for Mozambique DXpedition

07/24/2013

With less than 3 months to go until it’s on the air in October, the C82DX Mozambique DXpedition team is continuing its preparations. Heading up the DXpedition are Don Greenbaum, N1DG, and Tom Harrell, N4XP. “We now have secured the vehicles and trailers that will take us overland from Pretoria to Xai Xai (KG64), Mozambique,” the team reports. “Low Band operations remain the primary objective, and we have secured both Titanex and Battle Creek Special verticals.” The C82DX team says its South African members, ZS6P and ZS6RI, have traveled to Xai Xai, Mozambique, to map the operating site — directly on the ocean in the southern part of Mozambique — and to make rental arrangements. In addition to the team license, team members have all received personalized C92 call signs. During the day, C82DX will operate all HF bands plus 6 meters. The DXpedition has posted an operating plan on its website. The group invites questions via e-mail.
