So this is the end…
We had a great time over here! We had very little sleep but it was worth it. We now have another challenge to answer QSL cards. All gear is already checked in and are awaiting our departure from Kinshasa. We hope that we have given as much as possible HAM’s the needed DXCC country they needed. We enjoy the positive response from you all, and the donations from clubs and individuals. We hope you understand that not all demands on modes and bands from requests could be accomplished.

We tried to be on the low bands as much as possible. Our goal was 500 QSO’s on 160m and
we achieved it! Sorry for the people who couldn’t got through the pile ups. Sometimes signals were so loud that we almost fell from our chairs. We also had problems with local noise from unprofessional equipment in the neighborhood and the countless power cuts.
