IF 2017 RESULTS

Dear friends, dear members,

 

As the IR manager for IR island activities in the 2017 contest, and also as an island activator and hunter, I wanted to congratulate ALL teams from all groups, and thank ALL hunters.

Special TNX to the Island Festival Organisation for the great work (fast answer to all queries, and lightening fast results calculation!!!).

I already looking forward to participating to the 2018 event! 2017 was a success TNX to all involved.

 

Sincere BRAVO to the winners in each category !

 

Now, as the manager for IR activities and as a vice President of the group, I want to say a few words to the IR members: 

Guys, I'm delighted by the EFFORT you've done ! Great activating and great hunting ! 

International Radio made the show again ! We can do it if we really want ! 

The group is ALIVE and we have TOP quality members – I hope many "sleeping" members or members mostly active for other groups will consider again using the mythical IR callsign.

We have a fantastic callsign, and incredible history and a great "way of life" (The Spirit), so enjoy the radio and help us making IR BIG again !

 

Regards and vy 73 … de 14IR017 Regis

 

NB: I will now start designing the IR Island Festival QSL.Teams, your pictures are welcome.

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 ­čśë

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 .
