TY0CDX – TY22DX – TY68F by F5AOV – F5MOO – F5CWU & F4EGD
It all began with the CQ WW DX 2000. The F5KBA (TDXT) team had gathered for a meal when I spoke of my desire to travel to Benin. It’s true dinners are often the source of projects that may or may not be carried out. But, I was asked, why this country? Simply because I have been corresponding with a young Beninese named Victorin who, for years, has been inviting me to visit this country. Terry F5MOO, Didier F5AOV and Sylvain were ready to go with me and at the same time to take up a challenge : to organize a radio expedition to Benin , managing on our own as much as possible.
After we found a common vacation period (august), we had to organize everything : the plane tickets, the necessary equipment, licenses. Everyone began searching for information in magazines and on Internet – special thanks to the many OM’s who offered their help, giving us advice and making recommendations based on their personal experience on expeditions. Yet another example of Ham Spirit!
