Got my TY1TT callsign and license for life time from the Benin telecom authorities. For dxpedition in 2014 and 2018
Pile up control, please listen:
PLEASE DO NOT BLOCK/COVER MAKING YOUR CALL ON TOP OF A QSO
That means : DO NOT SHOUT YOUR CALL WHEN I COME BACK FOR AN OTHER STATION !!
WAIT FOR MY GENERAL CQ CALL PLEASE!!!
AND ANSWER ONLY WHEN CALLED BACK TO YOU !!!
PLEASE CHECK YOUR SPLIT SETUP !
PLEASE DO NOT TUNE ON RX or TX FREQUENCY,
This tuining is selfisch, and realy bad for my ears or others who are listning on my tx freq.
Important: in SSB, Please call me ONLY with the INTERNATIONAL SPELLING CODE
That means Alfa,bravo,chralie,delta,echo,foxtrot,golf,hotel,india,julliet,kilo,lima,mike,november,oscar,papa,etc..
This is much easier to copy for me in the pile up !
