C82DX UPDATE — Xai Xai is located on the Indian Ocean and is a high wind location. That has hindered our low band antenna progress. Yesterday the Battle Creek went up and today despite the high winds the Titanex is now up.
This completes the basic complement of Battle Creek, Titanex, Hex Beam and 2 SteppIR big IRs. The beverage for 160 is out and we will continue to add to receive antennas each day in different directions.
Last night 80 has been slow and we are dealing with noisy conditions. We are now running 4 stations 24/7 as conditions allow. We have been told our TX frequency is blocked in EU by radar. We will now transmit on 3513.00
We are QRV until Wednesday morning local time giving us 7 more nights on 80 and 160.
