Rare Africa via QRP

Daily DX logo_7
Listening for rare DX entities is commonplace. But when the person or group activating the entity is running QRP, well, that adds another dimension to the chase. In case you don't know, N2DE is the guy behind the Morse Machine that is sold by Pietro Begali. Here are the QRP-DX-pedition details:

Ulrich Steinberg, N2DE, will be active QRP for about 5 weeks from three DXCC entities in southern Africa, beginning in mid-January. In order, he plans to be on the air as A25US in Botswana, 3DAØUS in Swaziland, and as 7P8US from Lesotho. Steinberg said the exact dates and times will be determined according to his schedule “and on short notice.” He’ll be using an Elecraft KX3 running 10 W, CW only, on 20, 17, 15, and possibly 10 meters, if conditions permit. He may also get on 40 meters. As with his early 2013, 7P8US operation, he’ll operate 31 kHz above the lower band edge, targeting 14.031, 18.099, 21.031, and possibly 28.031 MHz.
