DXpedition – 10th, 11th, 12th and 13th of December, 2016

The council of management is pleased to inform all members that we have finalized all arrangements for the DXpedition, 10th, 11th, 12th and 13th of December, 2016 at Hiyare Galle.

The Location is a wildlife research station situated in middle of a 600 acre rain-forest and adjoining a lake (6° 3’31.39″N, 80°18’56.34″E) see the pictures below. This location can be easily accessed by the southern highway and will not take more than 1 ½ hours from Colombo. It is only a 15 minutes drive from the Pinnaduwa (Galle) highway exit to the Hiyare research station. If any member is coming by highway bus, we can arrange to pick you up from the Pinnaduwa exit.

We are hoping to operate in all HF bands 160M to 10M on CW, SSB and Digital modes under the 4S7RS callsign. An open invitation is being extended to anyone to come, be they already members or want to join or just see how radio amateurs do things. We are hoping to see you all there to have a wonderful time of fellowship.
