4W8X Update (28-Nov): Club Log information not yet complete. Still missing contacts. We are working on the problem. Do not send E-Mail to us about missing contacts. Please just wait! Thanks for your understanding!
Yesterday we took down the whole second location. Today we are dismantling the main location. We'll keep the 160m Vertical, the Beverages and the 60m Dipole. We'll hang up Vertical Dipoles for some other bands which we had used before in April. Only restricted operation during local nighttime.

Welcome to Timor Leste

In April 2023, a 3-men scouting trip successfully worked 43.000+ QSOs as 4W1A from our prospected QTH.
They refreshed all contracts that we had originally made (and paid!) in 2020.
