7P8AO Lesotho, 2009

I was active from the Kingdom of Lesotho, as the member of an international team during the above mentioned period. The operation was organized by African DX Safaris. Team leader: Frosty (K5LBU as 7P8CF). Team members: Laurent (W0MM as 7P8MM), John (9M6XRO as 7P8OK), Ben (DJ0YI as 7P8YI), and Pista (HA5AO as 7P8AO).

We have all arrived safe to Lesotho. John, 7P8OK (9M6XRO) had already been here on Monday afternoon and he helped to set up the station and  antennas. He started the operation on Tuesday afternoon.

Closing the donation campaign

Today I have closed the donation campaign for the children in Lesotho. 2,573 USD were donated by amateur radio operators, radio clubs, distributors and other individuals from many different countries. I will take the opportunity to hand over this amount on their behalf to the committee of the Leratong Community Centre, in Rome, Lesotho, during my visit March 2010. The copy of the document of receipt this amount will be published, here, in my website. The list of donors still remain available on-line. I should like to say many thanks for all those ones, who kindly sent their contribution and gave a hand in this way to the orphan and vulnerable children living in very hard circumstances in Lesotho.

See you in the bands again between 8 - 22 March 20010 from Lesotho.
