DXpeditions to Africa
Arie PA3A was a member of 3 DXpeditions to Africa:
- Liberia 2007 : 5L2MS
- Sierra Leone 2011: 9L5MS
- Republic of the Congo 2013: TN2MS
All DXpeditions to Africa were done in cooperation with Mercy Ships.
These 3 actvities were in combination with a charity Project. Gifts and ‘big green stamps’ were registered, so that the DXpedition team could sponsor a Mercy Ships shore-project like the building of a small hospital or a health program. In two DXpeditions the team also worked as volunteers on board. As a result several problems in the radiocommunication between ship and shore parties of Mercy Ships were solved. The team also installed a GPS reportingsystem in all Mercy Ships vehicles ashore.
