Hello brethren,

The recent African DXpeditions left me with mixed feelings. On one hand, their performance was close to ideal concerning band use and operators´ skills and very low percentage of QSOs made with OC, SA, and Asia besides Japan. It´s clear and obvious that the main flux of callers always originates from the nearest Ham-populeted cluster. In the case of Africa such clusters are Europe and East Coast NA that lie within distances comfortable to be overcome with a simple setups radio-wise. To make it more difficult to callers outside those areas DXpedition teams usually set their low band RX systems in their directions thus a SA or OC station has to have a HUGE signal in order to be heard if at all. It would be great if further operations take into consideration the need and desire of HAMs outside EU, NA, and JA to work them and dedicate short window for calling OC or SA directly.

One more DXpedition to be mentioned – S21ZEE/S21ZED ran by a mixed Latvian-Ukranian team from Bangladesh, an entity that is a challenge for many hams in both Americas. Despite horrible band conditions, bad weather and other difficulties, the team managed to log some NA-SA on low bands. Well done!
