Second DXpedition to Haiti 

After our first trip in Jan/Feb 2003 to the Ile a Vache in the south of Haiti 
now we try the north around Cap Haitien (thats normaly HH5 callsign area)

  ==> page HH6/hc

This is a special prefix for Haiti because of 

celebration of 200 Years Haiti



We think that will be the last operation from Haiti for a while.
Political situation escalated rapidly.
10 km in front of border our crew was hijacked by bandits.
We lost all our money and a part of equipment... 
Other equipment was demaged.
We are glad to drop out living.

Read the story.

Condx were very bad. Signals were very poor except 2 days. I never called so much CQ as a Dxpedition: 15mtrs 23:00Z for Ja => nothing. 

SSB on 160 => nothing. RTTY on WARC => nothing. Openings only on 1 band => rare possibility to work with 3 stations parallely. 

No 6mtrs at all
