Helmut, DF7EE informs he will be QRV from Maderia for his 17th trip to the island during October 25 to November 2. Callsign will most likely be CQ3W for the CQWW SSB contest and CT9/DF7EE for casual operating outside of the contest. Helmut also has a 60m permit on board again. Elmar, PD3EM is also joining this trip signing CS9/PD3EM.

NOTE: The trip in March, with the whole island losing power during CQ WPX contest, had a happy end – see here
