Thanks for the prompt dispatch of the NH8S Qsl cards which arrived in the mail today.
Please to be another DXCC confirmed on paper 😉 Latest info from NH8S;
”Craig and I would like to thank everyone who worked us from Swains. We made 105,500 qso’s which made a lot of hams happy. This is not a record but something we and the team are very proud of. We had a great time but are glad to be back home with our families.
This was truly a remarkable trip in many ways. We are very proud of our team as they performed remarkably well under unbearable heat. As you may know by now, it was 125° F on the beach in the sun. To put up antennas in the loose sand and heat, was quite a challenge. During the duration of the trip, the crew walked many miles to get to the operating stations four times a day. Then they worked the endless pileups, which can be stressful. Never did they complain about the job before them, making qso’s in those hot tents. Every crew member experienced some type of heat reaction at one time or another. Some members endured other injuries as well, and two were hospitalized, so we had our challenges. Everyone is home and fine now.”
