    Phil, G3SWH (FOC 1513) and John, G3OLU aka EA5ARC will be active from the Hawane Resort in western Swaziland (3DA) between 21st and 29th February 2012.   
    The Hawane Resort has a well equipped station with Elecraft K3 transceivers, ICOM IC2KL amplifiers, an A4S at 24m and an A3WS at 20m, a wire 4 square for 40m and a vertical for 80m complete with 30 x 20m long radials
    The team will use a single callsign for the DX-pedition, which is yet to be allocated.  Activity will be on CW only on all bands 80-10 meters. There will be no 160, 6 metres or EME activity. 
    Propagation permitting, they plan to have two stations on the air for as many hours every day as is possible.  Their main objective is to work as many European, North American and ROTW stations on as many different bands as possible and plan to make at least 15,000 QSOs. 
    QSL via G3SWH, either via the OQRS facility on Phil's web site (preferred), direct with SAE and adequate return postage, or via the bureau.
    Subject to a good Internet connection, there will be an on-line log on Phil's web site and daily uploads to LoTW.
    G3SWH will issue an update once the callsign has been issued and the web site is up and running.
