3C0L & 3C1L Story

Hello friends!

Thank you all for supporting and following our expedition, this is our story and we hope you will enjoy reading it.

At the beginning I intended this expedition to be a relatively quick reconnaissance expedition with a two-man team and with the main purpose to collect information and make new contacts for a larger expedition in future. The aim of this reconnaissance expedition was to get to know how to acquire operating licenses and to find possible QTH positions, to get familiar with living conditions and more, and of course, if possible to work on the air as well. In the end, this turned out to be much more than that.

H40GC Story

Temotu Province, Santa Cruz Islands group ( H40 )in Pacific area  is a very sought-after destination by many radio amateurs around the World! In 2016 and early of 2017, Temoto Province (H40) occupied 30th place in the CLUBLOG list for the most  wanted countries. It is currently on 46th place and is still needed by many radio amateurs in worldwide, especially  on SSB. The H40GC DXpedition 2017 was my second activation on this rare country. My first activation of this country was from Lata, Nendo Island ( IOTA OC – 100) – between October 4 and October 17, 2016. It is already known to me destination – the organization of the expedition H40GC 2017 was related to less unknowns! On the other hand, this time I had a serious commitment – besides the HF activation of this country, I had to carry out a humanitarian mission under the auspices of INDEXA and with the generous participation of CDXA & CDXF, Kontrax Ltd – Bulgaria and Andy, LZ2HM. Here I would like to point out that all individual and corporative sponsors, as well as all amateur clubs, associations and organizations that sponsored me before the expedition in practice are also participants in this humanitarian mission, for which I thank them.

5T5OK – Mauritania 2017 Story

The idea about the expedition to Mauritania started shortly after we returned from Comoros islands. When we looked for location for year 2017, we decided that we have to choose spot closer to Europe and North America, as result of propagation and a low solar activity. It was clear, that the choice will be somewhere in the upper half of Africa continent. Where to? Most countries we can divide into two categories – dangerous (health risks, political or safety reasons) and others which are relatively safe, but from a view of radio amateurs not so interesting. DX community desires activation of “rare” countries. Read more »
