After short discussion, we decide to wait a little bit until those 5 different activities will be on the way back home. There is a jungle on expedition frequencys. We are trying to avoid adding another walls of FT8 signals and create more drama. There is no rush and we need much more freq. channel space for our experiments. We will start 1week of April

T30UN Tarawa Island News 15 March 2023
T30UN has been issued for our next activity.
This will be about 5 weeks txing from northern tip of Tarawa.
T30/T33KC already setting some. Antennas. We will have 2 CW op, 1 SSB and 7 FT8 stations running.
Some days will be limited tx-ing due to other work than ham radio.
FT8 lovers keep in mind we will use fox mode and standard mode at the same time, same band but different frequencies (exam. 14.074 and 14.090 same time or 21.074 and 21.091) we should start activity soon.

Bula folks. We are doing final preparations for T30, Western Kiribati. Callsign is still not confirmed (possibly T30TTT) but this is not an issue.
We will have 2 x CW operators, 1 x SSB and 7 x FT8 stations. We will be joined by T33KC who just arrived from Banaba to help with everything for us. We will be located in the northern tip of Tarawa. This place has no electricity, so we will run 3 generators.
And now the important part: Is there anyone who is willing to donate used, simple amateur radio to Kaam T33KC (IC-706? FT-857? TS-480?) or any other HF radio? He is currently using an old HF radio which needs to be programmed before use. It has no s-meter, no swr meter, nothing. I already donated to Kaam 3 antennas, 2 generators, tons of coax, and now he will get a new laptop for logs and other things. I can cover shipping costs to Fiji if someone is willing to support him and take it with us to Tarawa.
Thanks T33TTT 3Z9DX.
