The F6KOP Team is pleased to announce that our 2008 DXpedition will take place in Guinea-Bissau on Bubaque Island with the largest team we have ever brought together. Using our XT2C
experience, we aim to be active on all open bands simultaneously. Our key objective is to take advantage of the minimum of the solar cycle to emphasize our activity on the low bands (40-160m). Among others, we will shoot for a first ever
JA-J5 QSO on the Topband.
We wish to dedicate this activity to our friend F5PVF - Gilles Simeon
, former president of F6KOP who unexpectidly went Silent Key in September 2007. Gilles took part in several of our previous expeditions and was always helpful in preparing antennas prior to our departure.
We already miss you badly Gilles...
