After 13 days of intensive operation our expedition is coming to an end. The crew is still highly motivated, the equipment and antennas have been working reliably and without failures since the beginning. The condx have also shown their good side, which can be seen in the QSO numbers. On October 28th in the morning we will start with the dismantling of the station and the day after we will start our journey home. We were glad to have made a QSO possible for many radio amateurs and thank you for the many calls.
The exact statistics will soon be available in Clublog.
73 Wolf, DM2AUJ, on behalf of the whole crew.

The team is now prepared to start on Monday, October 12th in the direction of Z6. The flights are confirmed ok, the material is stowed away and ready for transport. Werner, DJ9KH, will join us a day later. If everything goes according to plan, we will be QRV from October 14th. Hopefully we don't have to struggle with too much local QRM; we will watch the bands closely so as not to miss an opening on the low bands and high bands. We are grateful for information about our signals via email. Please do not inquire about the log during the duration of the expedition!
Also pay attention to the instructions of the operator!
We look forward to every QSO, good luck!

The team met at the Hohenwarte reservoir from July 27th to 29th. The aim was to test the interaction between the technology and the antennas.
Some of the XYLs also took part. It was a very constructive meeting with lots of knowledge and fun and we are in good spirits that the Z66DX will be a success if the Corona conditions allow it. You can find pictures from the meeting under "Gallery".
