NEWS UPDATE – The F6KOP team have updated news on their planned 2021 DXpedition to Guinea.
We have waited as long as possible, but will be forced to cancel / postpone our expedition to Guinea Conakry (3X). COVID-19 is preventing us from making our expedition. The Guinean Embassy no longer distributes tourist visas and we cannot wait for an expedition in January 2021 at the end of October / beginning of November. We have to make a difficult decision, so have decided to postpone this expedition until the end of 2021 or the beginning of 2022. We know that many of you were waiting for us, but don’t worry we’ll be ready for new adventures with F6KOP.
JUNE 8, 2020 — After our expedition to Palestine E44CC in February 2020, the F6KOP team decided to prepare the future expedition for January 2021.
We inform our entire amateur radio community several months in advance, in order to avoid, as last year, that a team decides to organize an expedition in the same place a few weeks before us.
So if the borders are open after COVID-19, so that we can travel safely, F6KOP will be active in January 2021 from Guinea Conakry 3XY on the island of KASSA IOTA AF 051.
We will be QRV all band from 10 to 160 meters with maybe the 60 meters in CW SSB RTTY and FT8, with 5 stations, 3 beams, several verticals, receiving antennas.
We will give you more details very soon about the operators and the callsign we will use for this new adventure. Thank you in advance for your collaboration to the success KASSA 2021.
73, see you soon
