Melville Island, NA-248

It was nice to receive another beautiful Qsl Card this morning from Cezar VE3LYC.

The card was for his latest trip to Melville Island, Nunavut, Canada (IOTA NA-248) whilst operating as VY0M.

I also enjoyed a great and interesting account about this adventure from Cezar whilst at the RSGB Convention back in October at the RSGB Convention in Milton Keynes, London.

Cezar is currently planning his next Dxpedition (details not pubic as yet) but I have no doubt it will be as rare if not more than this one and surely needed by many on the IOTA community.

If you are able please support Cezar for his trips. Not only are they expensive for a solo Dxpeditioner but they can be pretty dangerous as well.

Thanks Cezar, great job as always !

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.
