title: D4VHF team on Cape Verde plan 70 MHz band operations during the Summer of 2021

story: The D4VHF team on the Cape Verde Islands have announced that they plan to be operational on the 70 MHz (4-metre) band during the Summer of 2021. They will be using a 4-element Yagi beaming towards Europe with an output power of 500-watts.

As the Cape Verde Islands are a long way from Europe, some multi-hop propagation will likely be required.
