Departure for Mayotte for our 7 operators

by / Monday, 27 October 2014 / Published in news

In a handful of hours, the totality of the team will meet in Mayotte island (FH) which will be finally our starting point. Some operators are already there, others are about to arrive. After ultimate checks, we will fly toward Tromelin thursday morning at the crack of dawn. We hope to start the operations in the evening. Even if all the indicators are green, we will be serene only once on the island because unforeseen hitches can still happen.

The last week, an opportunity to complete the team with one more person happened. After validation by the authorities and by the pilot of our chartered plane, we asked Guillaume F4FET to go to Mayotte. He was on a waiting list since the beginnings, ready to leave at any moment in case of last minute desistance and had carried out the medical check-up. In parallel, he took part to the organistion of the operation in particular on the topic “Energy”. Friday evening, its participation has been validated definitively.

This positive last minute change will allow us to increase significantly our presence on the air, and thus your chances of QSO with Tromelin.

The pressure goes up and the motivation is huge ! We’ll give you some news from Mayotte, just before to leave for Tromelin !
