Meanwhile the call 7P8AA has been given to Danny Liebenberg from South Africa (ZS6AW), who now manages 7P8AA. In 2000 our team got 7P8AA. That means, only QSO between July 4th and July 22nd 2000 belong to our 2000-DXpedition.
All other QSO outside this range do not fall under our responsabilty, and will not be answered.

After our QSL-manager Fritz, DL7VRO, is silent key, all requests came to DL7UBA,
but now Hans, DL1YFF, has taken over. Therefore send to DL1YFF or look his address up at QRZ.COM. Thank you.


Lesotho, the kingdom in the southern part of Africa and surrounded by the South African Republic, will be the destination of our DXpedition in July 2000. Not just on the top of the pops in terms of Amateur Radio or most wanted, it yet is good for pile-ups, particularly on the lower bands and in CW and RTTY. Furthermore it seems to be an interesting place to go, so we decided to go to this country, the ROOF of AFRICA. If you want to know a bit more about the basic facts of Lesotho, have look into the World Factbook.


You will get to know something about our 7P8AA - team on our team site.
