Our friend, Gus 9Q1D left Kinshasa end of June 2007 for his native Sweden while letting us his 6m beacon and his antenna dipole that were installed near the Congo River.
I reinstalled it on my of FM transmitters site on a hill overhanging the city of Kinshasa, therefore with a very good coverage during 24/7.
Today june 2012, no probem at all, it`s work fine.
It is about a TX Russian origin that it already traveled a lot according to Gus, but in perfect condition of working with 10w RF on 50,021 MHz, call 9Q1D/B until year September 2007.
Don't hesitate to inform me when openings signal although the TEP (Trans equatorial propagation) either capricious!
We benefited since Kinshasa during the months of April, May and June of very good openings with Europe (about 150 QSO on my log)
I am very often in RX on 50,110 CW for a possible call (because too many useless CQ) and for the meantime the only one in 9Q on this strip.
I hope to hear you very soon.
