NEWS UPDATE & pictures by Wim TY1TT —

Since I arrived we had a big tropical storm here. Almost every day thunder and lightning. My 160 and 80m antenna’s working very well, but it is full of QRM from lighting; up to to S9. Last night every antenna came down due to high winds. I never saw this in Africa before. A tropical storm with almost hurricane wind speeds! All antennas are repaired and I try to go on 160m the next days, if no high level QRM/QRN.

JANUARY 22 — Wim, ON6DX will again be active as TY1TT from Grand Popo, Benin during February 19-28, 2018. Focus on 160-30m. QSL via ON6DX. Webpage
