DX Expeditions for June
« on: May 29, 2018, 03:22:21 AM »
The most notable one in the works is an operation from 6O0 that is Six Oscar Zero this will be a single man operation and we do know that the op is an excellent CW man. This is Baldur DJ6SI, however the planned operation will be with 100 watts and wire antennas, we shall what happens with this one?

Some of you old timers will recall a couple of decades back this op and a few other Germans operated from Glorioso Island and I was one of a few ops that worked them. The operation was never documented to ARRL and therefore no credit could be given. We have in our file a worthless card, our guess was this group got on the island without permission from the French Government, operated under the FR prefix at that time. It was not until several years later that two very confused ops went to Glorioso and did some operating. It was not a good operation since they moved around constantly, went QRT as soon as they were spotted and operated at the top of twenty meter phone. At least this time the operation was accepted by the League, so based on the history of the op on Glorioso, well take your chances, work it first and hopefully it will be accepted. Looks like it will be CW and that is it.
