For all you Raspberry Pi and Linux Fans:

P5DX-what could have been….
As a Blogger, my blog represents my thoughts and my views only. The content of this Blog does not represent anyone else but me.
This morning, I had to cancel a DXpedition. It was one of the hardest decisions of my life. It was not for lack of permission, it was not for lack of a team and equipment willing to go.
The prospect of a P5 activation brings out the worst in this hobby. The posers, the nuts, the ill-informed and the opinionated. But in the end, it mostly came down to a surprising lack of support and lack of funding from some of the world’s paramount DX foundations when asked to fund grants to the world’s #1 Most Wanted Entity.
PCARS will conduct an HF digital net tonight (Tuesday) at 7:00 PM. The net will open on 3583 kHz plus or minus and will use Olivia 500 Hz bandwidth 8 tones (8/500). Hope to see you there.

Tonight is the last night of the DX-pedition. We plan to work on 160 and 80m
during the night and on Tuesday morning we will listen for the West Coast
RTTY on 14Mc. On the air we will be until 10:00 GMT, April 26th. After that
we will take down antennas, pack equipment and go to Tehran airport to fly
At this moment we have made 62k QSOs.
I thank everybody for the activity during this DX-pedition. I want to give
special thanks to radio amateurs from Latvia who followed us this whole
time. We made contacts with 88 stations from YL which is one of the highest
activity from our small home country Latvia amongst all DX-peditions so far.
Congratulations to UY7QN (Dmitry’s UT7UJ father) who made 20 band slots with
