HC2AO VIEWS

Hello brethren,

Two major DX-peditions of the year are over. It’s time either to smile with satisfaction, or to sigh with disappointment. Judging by comments public and private, one can see that K5P was praised in NA and JA, while VP8STI in Europe, Asia, and US East Coast. Geography and conditions were the key factors more than usual. K5P all-vertical outing could have been more productive say a year or two ago when higher bands were in a way better shape. VP8STI would log more QSOs with NA and Central America, had they had a different location. Could have, should have yet the reality is on the ClubLog statistics. There is now way of comparison between two if one is to speak about comfort and endurance. The Sub-Antarctic, rough-seas, drastic weather expedition beats any other by dedication, will, and bravery of the participants. Palmyra is rare on the air, yet it’s a tropical paradise in the middle of the Pacific, with perils like getting sunburn or dehydrated. Despite more contacts with K5P including one on 160 with 80 watts, my vote goes to VP8STI.

In a few days, the Penguins team should activate South Georgia, another much-sought destination for many DXers. Another ATNO for me as HC2AO and another mountain in the way to struggle with.
