9L, SIERRA LEONE (Update to OPDX.1367). Mark, KW4XJ, who is now active as 9L1YXJ from Freetown (WW Loc. IJ38jk), informs OPDX that his overseas assignment is for 3 years and he has been there for 9 months now. Mark operates mainly on CW and the Digital modes on the HF bands (40-10m). He adds that he [edited] uses an "ICOM IC-7300 running 100 watts, Chameleon EMCOMM II end-fed wire antenna in an inverted L configuration, with a telescopic mast up about 25’, then the rest of the wire out horizontally to a convenient supporting anchor. I had to switch to the wire antenna as we have progressed into the rainy season, and we do get some rather strong wind gusts and monsoon rains here in the tropics. Before that I was using a Chameleon mil-whip w/extension. That worked very well but is a portable antenna. No way it could hold up to the storms this time of year. The wire antenna seems to be holding up well so far. I am going to be ordering an Elecraft 500-watt amplifier and electronic antenna tuner here shortly. I hope to have that delivered and installed in about a month or so. Right now, I’m using a MFJ manual antenna tuner — it works fine but after a while it gets tiring and the lazy side of me wants to just hit a button to tune. :) With the sunspot cycle where it is I’ve only been able to make FT8 and CW contacts with just 100 watts. Sometimes PSK31 will work from here. I’ve made a handful of RTTY contacts. Usually CW and FT8 most of the time. SSB seems pointless after many attempted QSOs to Europe that were very marginal at best if we could get through at all. That is why I was thinking the amplifier would help. My CW skills are still pretty basic, I can reliably manage about 13 WPM on the air. I did do my first ever CW contest here recently for the CQMM DX. I made over 300 contacts which I thought was a decent showing given my relatively low power, rookie operator, and slow speed. I need to find another CW contest to try. I’m still relatively new at operating on HF. I’ve got a lot of unexpected, excellent advice from hams around the world — the US, but also lots of help from the UK, Germany, Brazil, and Japanese operators. This is an amazing hobby. I’ve had FT8/JT65 QSOs from here in Freetown to the Falkland Islands, Iceland, Japan (lots of Japan on the long path), Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and the West coast of Canada, all with my modest setup." QSL via his home callsign.

At Visalia and Dayton we had the pleasure of meeting many of our supporters and equipment sponsors, including: DX Engineering, Elecraft, SteppIR and Arlan Communications (RadioSport headsets). Several of team attended Europe’s Ham Radio event conducted at Friedrichshafen, Germany, where we met with corporate, EU club and foundation sponsors, many EU DXers and other DX-pedition operators.
  Joining the Pilot Team is Mason, KM4SII, from Clemmons, South Carolina. Mason, an avid DXer, is 15 years old. In 2017 he operated from Iceland as TF/KM4SII, in July 2018 he will operate from Curacao as PJ2/KM4SII. Mason will work with NA and Chief Pilot Glenn KE4KY.
  Joining our list of corporate sponsors is Rig Expert Ukraine Ltd <https://rigexpert.com/>. Rig Expert is a recognized leader in the development, production and global sales of antenna analyzers, transceiver interfaces, ARDF equipment and amateur radio software. Rig Expert donated 2 Model AA-55 Zoom antenna analyzers to the project. We appreciate the support of our corporate sponsors.
  Our current fundraising campaign is underway; you may see the progress at our website. We appreciate the donations and equipment support we’ve already received. Our final payment for the Braveheart is due on September 1st. Please keep in mind, boat/tent/generator DX-peditions incur similar expenses whether or not you make a contact. Team members have booked their travel to meet the Braveheart at Mangareva, French Polynesia. This is not a VP6D project expense; each team member pays travel expenses from personal funds.
  Financial transparency allows the major sponsors to better understand the costs associated with a DX-pedition and how we spend their money. Consistent with our previous DX-peditions, we will send club and foundation sponsors a VP6D financial summary.
  We need your help to keep our DX-pedition team’s personal investment to a reasonable level.  Please consider making a donation at: http://vp6d.com
  Good luck to the KH1/KH7Z DX-pedition team, we’ll see you in the pile-ups.
