      In this year we decided to make a tour into the Indian Ocean. We stayed between the 18th of April and 2nd of May on the islands of the Seychelles. With the help of some friends we found an excellent location near to the beach. This location helps us a lot, so the DX-pedition results in more than 22000 QSOs during our 3 weeks activity. Include were more than 500 QSOs on 80 meters, which gives a lot of DXers a complete new one. With some luck we got a temporary license to activate the 80 meters band during two days.   

We were using two triple-leg-antennas, which were located directly at the beach, one covering 10 to 20 meters, including WARC. The other one was just for 40 meters. On 80 meters was used a simple dipole hanging between two palm trees. 

To make the logs available during the dxpedition we were using a daily Pactor-link to transfer it back to friend who publish the logs on a searchpage  for dx-peditions-logs. So already 24 hours after his QSO everybody was able to see if he is in the log.
