9J2LA Press Release #4 – 04.03.2020

By | 04/03/2020

Good morning DX-community,

today we start our journey to 9J, Zambia. Many of the team members are already in Oslo and we will gathering @Gardermoen airport for the final “re-packing party” early afternoon. I feel confident with the team, equipment, the lodge, bus transportation as well as a 5 KW backup generator is prepared at the QTH. Zambia is still experiencing power shedding so let us hope this will not be too much of a headache for the team. My only concern is the custom process @KKIA in Lusaka. We have done what we where told to do regarding custom clearing down there. Customs at the airport are aware that we are coming 😊. A refundable deposit of $6000 is payed to a custom clearance agency so by theory all should be “swift”, let’s see how that will work out 😊. Furthermore we will have limited access to internet for a couple of days until we have a proper 4G network ready. Due to that fact further updates on our website are limited. A huge thank you for all the support from individuals, clubs etc. Wish us all good luck and hopefully we “see you” in the pileups soon.
