Hej
T30 - Western Kiribati
The T30L Latvian Dxpedition team reports that there are issues with
the internet and AC power. YL2GM, Yuris, says otherwise things have
been okay. As of two days ago the low bands vertical for 160-30 had
been installed.

Hej
The following update is from the T30L/C21WW website.

More photos added at http://www.lral.lv/c21ww_t30l/photos.html.

When you call us in FT8 DXpedition mode, you must initially transmit
above 1000 Hz, otherwise we can not reply.

Yesterday finished antenna set-up. So we have 2 spiderbeams, low-band
vertical with RA6LBS matchbox, separate vertical for 40m and EFHW Z37M
dipole.

Yesterday whole day mains power was missing, we were using generator
power. We are using 2 stations due to lack of propagation.
During the night the water level raised up to the low band vertical
matchbox and caused it to fail. Today we raised the matchbox 0.5m
higher.

Each day we need to fix low band radials tangled by tide waters.
Quite a challenge during antenna building was to fix the guy-wire
anchors in the beach sand. Sticks we had brought were too short, so
instead we used locally found wooden sticks about 1 m long, put some
rocks on them for extra stability.

Later this week we will visit local school as part of Hams With Hearts
program.

We hope that propagation will improve and allow more contacts with
Europe to be made.
