Temotu DXpedition Dates Set

07/21/2013

The dates for the next H4ØFN DXpedition to Temotu by Siegfried Hari, DK9FN, are set. The single-op DXpedition will take place from December 21, 2013, until January 10, 2014. Hari has his airline ticket, and the license, good until 2014, is in hand. Hari says he plans to stay a week longer than usual, since he’s unsure about making it back for another in 2014 (he operated as H4ØFN in 2010, 2011 and 2012), and there is some work to do on the island to support poor people and the hospital in Temotu. This visit will be to a different island that has a new airfield, Lom Lom (OC-065), 60 miles away from his previous location. The last three visits were to the main island, Nendo (OC-100). CW is his favorite mode, but he admonishes, “Keep your CW at a moderate speed.” He will try to do more SSB on this next visit. QSL H4ØFN via DK9FN, direct or bureau. DK9FN asks stations working H4ØFN to give him a “real and true” signal report, and he has posted additional advisories and caveats for those hoping to put H4ØFN in the log. — Thanks to The Daily DX
