March 5th – 15th 2020 is the date of the DXpedition by Rune LA7THA and the team of LA operators, following their success as 7P8LB earlier this Year.
This time the LA chaps will be joined by other Ops and the full list now reads, LA3BO, LA3MHA, LA8OM, LA9KKA, LA9VPA, LB8DC, DK6SP, OE5CWO and OE7PGI.
They plan CW, SSB, FT8 and “some RTTY” on 160-6. The team will make use of the Leaderboard facility on Clublog. Qsl & Logsearch will be via M0OXO OQRS or Direct Post Mail. Do NOT send your cards via the buro as they will not be received.
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.
