TJ9PF now Qrt…..’new World Record’ achieved….


Well the TJ9PF operation from Cameroon has now ended. This message from the team leader about their efforts;

”As the best things , the TJ9PF 2011 aventure is ending. The last 24 hours of traffic are on. After the last QSO around 1300 UTC, TJ9PF will be off. The time of the memories and the assessment will start.

The last upload of the log happened yesterday evening at 1900. The last QSO has been logged at 1200z. The first target of 80000 QSO wasn’t reached but despite all of the problems they suffered with electricity, static and propagation, they finally stopped on about 67000 QSO’s.

One of the most important things is they have once again broken the RTTY QSO’s number world record in a Dxpédition. They keep the Digital Dxpedition QSO World record with more than 17000 q’s on RTTY. They kept the previous record since they broke it for the first time in 2009 during TS7C dxpedition. Despite the working conditions, the electricity blackouts etc, the 160m band shows 1747 QSO CW and 44 QSO SSB.

Tks to all of you who are still doing all that’s possible to make TJ9PF 2011, a success.”

Charles M0OXO

I was born in the 1960’s and have lived all my life in the Coal Mining Town of Barnsley in South Yorkshire, Northern England. My parents were all from this area of Yorkshire and my father worked in the main Industry of the local Collieries as a face worker. I have been married to my wife Debbie for 35+ years and we have two children and two grandchildren.

I have been licensed for around 20 years after my interest was re-kindled when I retired from my role as a Police Officer within South Yorkshire Police Force. The latter few years were spent as Radio Operator in the Force Operations Control Room at Sheffield, before my career ended.

IOTA chasing is (and always has been) my real passion, as climbing the ladder to reach Honour Roll status was always my main aim. The 1000 Islands Trophy is still out of reach but I am heading in the right direction. I am currently a Board Member of IOTA Ltd and IREF.

In my free time I am a keen Photographer of Wildlife, Aviation, (anything really) but the QSL Manager role is my main passion within Ham Radio.
