The web site of SŲ1R -
Western Sahara 2006 Dxpedition is open. Thanks guys
and see you in the pile-up.
We added two surveys at HOME
to know in which band and mode is most wanted the
Finally we decided to change our QTH in Western
Sahara from Bir Lehlu to Tifariti because in Tifariti
we have more electrical power available and the place
is well know by two of our members.
We have now a new pilot specially for Japan
stations. Thanks for the help to
We arrived to Tifariti. We are on the air!.
Good Morning ! After a long and tired trip, today we will build the complete station.
We have begun the activity in 14.008 CW and
later we have mounted the station for 40 meters
SSB . At the moment the antennas for bands
10-15-20 and 12-17 are not installed totally.
They had a problem with the MA5B but they hope to
be able to repair it. The antenna spiderbeam is
mounted in the ground and possibly during today it
can be installed. The amplifiers have not been
installed by energy problems, but they have located
a generator of 4 KW in the zone and hope to be able
to reach an agreement to use it.
Yesterday they had a
tornado or sand storm and is broken the Spider Beam
and the dipole of 30 M, which tried to repair to
have them a full as soon as possible.
Also they finished the
installation of the antenna of 160M and the last
night they have done the first 141 QSOs in 160 M
with only 100 W of power.
At the moment already they have
exceeded the barrier of the 8000 QSOs, of which 700
QSOs have been made in RTTY in 15 and 20 meters.
Today Thursday we hope to have
the LOG online.
All of them are well.
Only today will be transmiting of 15:00 to 15:00
hour EA on 21.195/21.200 for EC stations.
It has not been possible to
upload nothing to internet because they have not
given permission, they will upload the logs once
arrived at home (Tuesday Wednesday ).
They have tried repeated times to
make many JAs but it is not possible, the conditions
for the Paciifc are very bad and they have much
noise. They will try again in the next japanese draw
on 40 and 80 meters.
Tomorrow makes QRT at 12 UTC and
they will arrive at Alicante airpport at 4 or 6 in
