About amateur radio DXpeditions

Amateur radio expeditions, commonly known as DXpeditions, are associated by all amateurs with the signs JA1BK, JH1AJT, OH2BH, SM0AGD, VK9NS (last two are my expedition gurus), ZL1AMO – let me name those better known. One of the pioneers of DX expeditions were famous: Robert Leo W7LR, Gus Browning W4BPD and Danny Weil VP2VB. Then for years we were excited by expeditions by Iris and Lloyd Colvin – W6QL and W6KG. For me these people have always been idols, as they have given a lot of emotions and happiness to the whole ham society, enabling us all to make long-distance communication with the white spots on the map

On the following pages you may read about several expedition to places, which are not often visited by tourists. I begin with a description of several SP9FIH & company expeditions: Aland Islands SP9FIH/OH0, Austral Islands FO0WEG, Marquesas Islands FO/SP9FIH and FO0POM, Tonga A35WE, Nepal 9N7WE, Bonaire PJ4/SP9FIH,  Anegada VP2V/SP9FIH, Dominica J79L, Macau XX9TIH, Albania ZA/ZA1P, Palestine E44WE, Lihtenstain HB0/SP9FIH, Sint Eustatius PJ5/SP9FIH and more!

There are two awards for contacts with amateur radio expeditions issued: “Tonga DXpedition Award” and “Polish World Tour Award”. I still have QSL cards for my expeditions – send me e-mail and I check if you are in the log.
