Rigs: Three TS930s, three FT990s and six Alpha amplifiers.

Antennas: 6 beams (Force 12 and cushcraft), verticals, dipoles and beverages.

Note from team: Our sincere thanks to Ralph/9G1RQ and Didier/TU5EX for storing our equipment since last year and to Samir/9G1NS for much help. Also to the Sarawakawa Hotel who looked after us so well; the Togo PTT for help with the licences; Ian and Jani Sayer for enormous assistance and without them whom the project would not have succeeded; to Air Afrique for their good services and to KF7AY our Webmaster.

The logistics was ondeed challenging: ten people with six stations and so many antennas to move by road through TU (Ivory Coast) and 9G (Ghana) to 5V (Togo).
