As of September 2022, I have started a new job at a project in Tabora, Tanzania. After getting the necessary licence from TCRA for the callsign 5H8HZ, as of 17 September, 2022, I am on the HF bands, mainly in the evenings and every other Sunday. (When I am on the air and suddenly disappear, some emergency work might have come up and I might have to leave QTH. ) The station is set in my office and the antenna is windom wire one, so please no“TURN YOUR BEAM TO…….” Also as I am operating from the office, I can not use SSB as much as I like. So back to digital modes, especially FT8.

As I will be working within the project, I hope to be on the air during my spare time. The rig is an Yaesu FT-991 running barefoot 100w to a 40-10m Windom wire antenna hanging between the roofs of my work place. When we move to the permanent construction camp area, I will have a much better elevated antenna.

As of 25 June 2023, the station is  QRT  with 157 DXCC worked 147 confirmed in LoTW.
