The Team: The team is composed of 4 experienced operators as follows:

Please see The Team page for details. Callsigns may change, as we 'll collect our licenses on arrival in Benin.
QTH: Near Cotonou, in the South of Benin
Location: We stay at Au Jardin Helvetia, a beach resort with nice bungalows with space for antennas
Focus: We'll try to focus on low bands (160-40m), especially for NA and JA openings; EU should be no problem on all HF bands/modes; the team includes two RTTY enthusiasts, but each of us can operate all modes.
Equipment: Please see the Setup page.
Feedback: Please let us know your comments and your needs for TY if you wish.
Contests: We'll take part in all major contests on CW, SSB and RTTY, namely BARTG RTTY Spring and CQ WPX SSB (single op. or Multi/Single or Multi/2, we'll see). So please look for us!
