30IR/UGR001Ullibari Gamboa Reservoir / Islet # 1

This Sunday,15 March 2015, a “last minute” IWI activation, has been done from the Alava province / Basquian Country.

Flo was active as “portable” from Aldayeta Islet . He suffered a lot due to weather conditions (Fog, 3°c, rain and snow showersl….) and equipment failure! (loose microphone wiring).

After nearly 40 Qso in 2 hours 20 mn a big rain shower closed the activity. It resulted a wet equipment and operator…

Well done Flo 😉

This “unexpected” activation, was done during a reconnaissance trip, for a possible “bigger one”, on this lake, with boat access, in some weeks…

Time will tell.

This activity is part of the IR-DX Basquian Country DX Tour … PLEASE DO NO SEND QSL before the tour is over. Other activations to come .

30IR IWI tour in progress

Lasts days, 3 Inland Waterways Islands in Biscay were activated, as “new one” on 11m.
Comment from the operator:
”Characteristics of theses 3 islands/rock are that, even if they are officially listed as IWI, they are located near the Atlantic ocean, and so, like any coastal Islands /rocks, they are affected by low /high tide…As of today, a bunch of “islands hunters” already worked me on all 3 islands/rock, so thanks to them, as well as the other ones, for their interest. I’ll be sporadically active again from these locations till April. Bests 73, cu on the air” ….

Reminder: Wait end of April 2015 before sending any logs entries and Qsl request! (to 14IR017)
(We expect multiple re-activations of these 3 ones, and maybe more to come till then)

NEWS : IR-DX History (our archive site)

Thanks to Jan 153IR101's work, we are proud to introduce our History Website aka the IR-DX archive, were you will find most QSL and most pictures and activation reports from the early days until 2004. We now need to upload material from 2004 to 2014, so it's a "work in progress", but we are sure it will bring back good memories !
