David OK6DJ, Petr OK1FCJ and Pavel OK1DX decided to visit this close but rare DXCC country. Organized by David, equipment supplied mostly by Peter and Pavel. Private callsings ZA/xxxx were used (failed to get a common contest call). The total QSO number is around 10000, including that in CQWW RTTY contest (MultiOp SingleTx category). The QTH in resindential area was quite noisy, esp. on low bands, sri.
