STARS donates rotator controller to ET3AA

ET3AALast August we were informed about the revival of ET3AA, the university station in Addis Ababa the capital of Ethiopia. Four new amateurs passed their amateur radio exams and multiple efforts to sponsor amateur radio in Ethiopia were started. A lot of work had to be done before one could even think of installing the antenna and the shack: waterproof the roof with asphalt and before that fix the water pumps needed as fire fighting capability. STARS decided to donate a controller much needed for the rotator that should turn the station's logperiodic antenna. Today Sid ET3SID, who is the driving force behind the revival of ET3AA, informed STARS that the controller has arrived at the University of Addis Ababa. Prior to a booming ET3AA signal we can expect some "vertical" operation. Be sure to hear them on the air soon.
