SOUTHERN SUDAN 2011 (STØDX may be) on 6m

The Intrepid-DX Group and the DX Friends have combined efforts to announce our next DXpedition, to the newly created country of Southern Sudan, to take place after July 9th 2011.
Call: (STØDX may be), Locator KJ54tu in Juba (capital city of Southern Sudan).
BAND    CW        SSB   
6M        50.103     50.103
50 MHz information and operating tips:
* The 6 metre band will be included in this operation. Although the dates are not at the very peak of the Sporadic E season we think it is worthwhile making the effort, in spite of the long distance to Europe, Asia and North America.
* We will use a 7 element Yagi plus a kW. A second beam may be used for monitoring purposes.
* We plan to use the frequency 50.103 for both CW and SSB, although it may be changed, depending on local noise/birdies. Split operation will be used when needed.
* The main mode will be CW. If band conditions permit, SSB will be used to gain a higher QSO rate. Please do not ask for mode changing.
* Please avoid QSO duplication, give others a chance. Logs will be uploaded twice a day to our website.
* Whenever it's possible, and while the band appears closed, the station will be beaconing on the same frequency. If you hear it, feel free to send a text (SMS) saying your grid locator and report only. Our phone number will be announced.
* Our Grid Locator is KJ54TU. Please, DO NOT send your locator, it is not needed and we won't log it anyway, it wastes precious time.
