REPUBLIC OF KOSOVO ACTIVE TODAY — Z60A TEAM ALREADY ON THE GROUND
Kosovo’s IARU Society SHARK, and its president Vjollca Caka, Z61VB are hosting a tenth anniversary activation celebrating Kosovo’s independence, February, 2008.
The activation has already started, with Z60A being found on several bands.
Adding to their HQ location is a semi-permanent low-band site. Both sites have beam antennas plus four K3s and SPE 1.3KW amps. Olli, OH0XX has been testing the propagation over the past two days with good — but narrow — U.S openings.
An international team has been invited to Kosovo and is partially on the ground at this time. The team consists of DL3DXX, OH0XX, OH1MA, OH2BH, OH3JR, OZ1IKY, S50A and S51F, along with locals Z61DX, Z61FF, Z61VB, Z62FB and Z63DBB. Additional locals are behind this activity as well, and a new 2nd week team will be announced soon.
Jim, K9JF, ARRL Hon. Vice-President and Hans, PB2T, IARU R1 secretary will add to the party.
The ARRL Rocky Mountain Division director, Dwayne Allen, WY7FD has informed the team that the LoTW and the other ARRL structures are being put into place to receive this new DXCC country contacts. Already, “Republic of Kosovo” is listed in the DXCC Challenge pages.
ClubLog will be used for this activation, while QSLs will go via OH2BH.
To DX Coffee,
after more than 20 years of amateur radio activity (IZ4AMS, 9A8AMS, DD4T, EI6MS, 5Z4/IZ2AMS, II4K, 5B4ALX, H2X and much more), after numerous successes in world rankings in the major Contest, after over 120.000 QSO …

II will run in will be active in CW, SSB and RTTY from 6m to 80m, I will run in CQWW WPX SSB Contest as SO15LP.
The achievement of the target of 20.000 QSOs will depend exclusively on the propagation, everything else has been studied in detail to achieve it.
At the end of the activity, after my return, a QSL will be printed in 4 sides that will host the names and logos of those who wanted to support this SODXped, same operation will be done on the page dedicated to the activity on the website www.5b4alx.cloud that receives daily more than 1000 visitors.
