Hi all. So I’ve set up this Blog to document my DX trip to Lesotho over the Christmas 2015 period. I’m excited and nervous – I’m doing this by myself and this is my first DX expedition. I’ve been to Lesotho many times and feel comfortable with the country. I feel less comfortable with my amateur radio technique but maybe you guys can give me guidance.
I live in Cape Town in the western cape of South Africa. I have an intermediate UK licence 2W0CEO, Lesotho licence 7P8GOZ and am currently working on my full licence in South Africa – hopefully ZS1GOZ soon.
