Ron PA3EWP and Henk ON4AHF attended the GMDX Convention in Stirling Scotland where they gave a presentation on the EP6T -Expedition. It was very enjoyable and interesting to meet top Dx-ers and exchange experiences.
Special thanks to Rob GM3YTS and Tom GM4FDM for the warm welcome ! Pictures can be found on our website. Here are some more pictures on Nigels website. Tomorrow, Luc, ON4IA and Frank, ON7RU will leave for the conference in Visalia (USA)
Maybe you have noticed it. We have stopped our donnation request. All the donnations that we received in the past were a warm welcome! We will now concentrate on making a DVD. If it's ready, you can order it through our website again. We will also give several presentations all over the world.
These are already planned:
- GMDX convention on the 11th of April - click here for more info
- IDXC convention on the 18th of April - click here for more info
- Dayton HAM vention from the 15 till the 17 of May
This expedition took place in extremely difficult circumstances.
Despite many hurdles such as security, customs, power losses, the visit of more than 30 officials and observers and an extremely high QRM level caused by man made noise with occasional peaks up to over S9, we still managed to retrieve more than 68,000 Q's !
The Rockall Dx Group is proud to inform you that our goal to promote amateur radio in Iran, hence opening doors for both local radio amaters as future DXpedition groups, has been achieved.
Dr. Azim Fard, General Director of the CRA, has assured to further keep supporting ham radio in Iran by creating exams and establishing new clubs.
The translation of our 150 page course to Farsi will be a good guide and will soon also be downloadable for free in the neighboring countries.
As always we would like to thank our sponsors for their trust in the Rockall Dx Group and hope to be able to count on you in the future.
Individual sponsors who have joined our log will receive a QSL card free of charge.
Max ON5UR is currently busy with the QSL design which Tim M0URX will then further distribute, taking this roll as his lead.
A video of this adventure will be made available shortly.
We have learned a lot but still there is so much more to tell, therefor we will be visiting the DX convention for a presentation in CA, GMDX, FDH and perhaps in your club with a Powerpoint presentation.
See you all soon in a new and exciting DXadventure!
The Rockall DX Group.
