Eric’s lecture during HAMSI – Hams meeting in Kuopio 1983
Two of my DXpeditons heros passed away: Jim Smith VK9NS in 2009 at the age of 80 and this year in July 2018 – Eric Sjolund SM0AGD at the age of 83.

What I most appreciated – their operations were “one man DXpeditions” and in 70s or 80s previous century there was no internet to find proper QTH, cheapest airline, ship or boat to remote location etc…

Great memories of both of them…. Specific style of operation (Do you remember last Dxpeditions of Eric listnig 5, 10, 15, 20 kHz up… ?)
