T32C - Kiritimati (Christmas Island)

While making a shoppinglist for the hamfest in Friedrischshafen, I'm making an even longer list for a major DXpedition. G3NUG from the FSDXA gave me the opportunity to join the DXpedition to Kiritimati, T32C.
It's an honour to join the team of all these well known DX'ers. Will leave the country the 9th of October and will return 3 weeks later. Want to know more about the island? Click here. It's not an easy path, but with the improving conditions and the teams focus on Europe, everybody will have a fair chance to get in the log. Remember the previous DXpeds of the FSDXA: D68C, 3B7C, 3B9C.... the OPs are PROs and the equipment is top noth. The events major sponsor is Yaesu. We will have 16 FT5000 and the same number of VL-1000 amp.
100 days to go, countdown started....

Lighthouse QSL

The last few years I made several short trips to the french coast. Most of the time I managed to combine these family trips with some hamradio activity.  The result is over 1000 QSOs from 5 different lighthouses. In attach the design of the QSL card. All credits go to my girlfriend Kelly
