Good research guys, and thanks for the heads up.  I  just put him in our database as an invalid iota.

I agree with Jerry. 

First of all, there's an article by WA3DX's wife (KC3BHD) at 

https://dxnews.com/single-op-senegal/

This is apparently their second trip there, as the article is dated 3 Nov 2017, and they had just returned to Philadelphia. 

In the article, Fatu (KC3BHD) describes operating from Marloj Island in the Saloum Islands. The Saloum Islands would be part of AF-045, the Senegal North group, but they are explicitly listed as being excluded. My guess is that they're not really "open sea islands", but part of the Saloum river delta, and river delta islands are disqualified under rule B.1.1.

The is a search for islands by name... I searched Marloj  and what returned did not include anything in Senegal. A whole lot of other islands came back, but no matches.

He and XYL returned to Philly , but are now back in 6W. 

Thanks for back up Steve  !!

Re: Just worked JM7OLW + A BIT

 

Your email wasn't "off list"...

Barry...

I'm here...in good shape and I generally post when I have something of value to say. to say.

I've never felt it necessary  to respond to just about every post that somebody else makes, regardless of the topic.

Suke's tower:

The concrete at the base and it's footings, in engineering speak, is called a "grade beam". It helps his tower survive the vibrations of the earthquake prone area of Fukishima, by linking the base of each leg to each other, via concrete, below the surface of the ground. That's usually done at the very bottom of the excavation. The size of the excavation, footings, and grade beams are determined by what the soils report says. Mushy soil?...keep digging baby! Hard pack clay?...much preferred.

BTW, it was 82F here today.
