Callsign Change! We will work using EF9LZ!

We will use a special callsign for this operation: Our local supporter Jorge EA9LZ arranged for us a permission that we can use his contest callsign EF9LZ.

This callsign is of course conforming to the JT65 standards.

All preparations are on schedule...still 5 weeks to go...

Building a New Preamp Box

After having had some trouble with our preamps on Azores 2018 we decided to build a completely new preamp setup for the EA9 activity. Basis are two Tohtsu CZX-3500 coaxial relays. They have an isolation of 65 dB on 2 m and can transfer sufficient power.

We are grateful to Wimo WiMo Antennen & Elektronik GmbH for selling them to us at a fair discount and herwith supporting our activities.

X-Team QRV from EA9 Ceuta (IM75HV)

Since we now received final confirmation from our location owner we can officially communicate that the X-Team will be QRV from EA9 Ceuta next March. We will use the same QTH as Zdenek OK1DFC in 2017, IM75HV. We will run as EA9LZ both on 2 m and 70 cm but with focus on 2 m because Zdenek might have worked all 70 cm stations needing EA9 during his stay.

Please stay tuned for further updates about exact dates. We will do all plane/car/ferry bookings the next days and then inform about the exact dates of activity.


For info about the QTH please have a look at  OK1DFC's website

X-Team Plans For 2019

We are already busy planning our next DXpedition. The dates will be between March 14th and 21st, 2019. We are currently discussing locations in the DXCC we chose for our activity. It is still quite early but what we can say now is that it is within terrestrial reach from Central Europe but yet wanted on EME.

Stay tuned!

QSL Routes

QSLs for QSOs with us are via DF2ZC, address as in qrz.com

We prefer direct QSLing, via Club it might take >>  one year.

Please enclose 3 US-$ for postage and handling, as well as a return envelope or an address sticker. PLEASE NO IRCs...we do not get them exchanged for postage!

You can however make things easier by just sending us 3 US-$ via paypal to our donations account (see right at top) with call sign and QSO data in remarks. You do not need to send a QSL by post then.

Sponsors will receive their QSL automatically as soon as the cards are available.
