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/BI-004 or BI-005 on air the 8 March 2015

This Sunday, Flo will be on the air from BI-004 Ambecoa Isl. After a 1st reco. trip, it appears that BI-004 is accessible at low tide, with boots, at the south point. But if it fails, he will go to BI-005…

Comment from the operator:….”Access on BI-004 is possible, but it’s a long way walking in this “swamp” area ! Please listen well, be patient, as I’m not able to produce a big signal from there. Ambecoa Isl. Is located in a “biospheric area” so I use only “green energy” 12v Battery… I hope to write you down in the log.. 73, cu on the air” …




101IR/0 active NOW !


on air : 101IR/0


Standard contribution (2$ or VALID IRC) – Pse no Euro currency.

No country , operator name or shoesize questions on the air please ! The operator will have limited time, so please only make 1 QSO.

Good luck !
