Recently I was positively surprised by e-mail from our friend Igor RT4RO which said …Hi Romeo! Congrats!
2013 WW DX SSB TROPHY WINNERS AND DONORS
IG9Y (Ops: HA1YA, JH5GHM, N3BNA, PC5A, PE1ITR,
RCØF, RT4RO, S5ØX, S52RU, S54W, S57DX, S57UN,
S59A, VE3LA, Edith)
Donor: Gail Sheehan, K2RED
This meant that the official results are published in the CQWW SSB 2013 …Very Happy I immediately forwarded the news to the rest of the team …
Team IG9Y won (deservedly) trophy plaque award for Contest expedition in the category of Multi operators and win the 6th place in the M / M category in the world …
Someone will say that the result is bad, …. But. Do not forget that we all did a lot of work for this Crazy project for almost a year …
We started with an empty wallet and bank account, collect donations, sponsors, looking for the cheapest possible variant to get to the island, camped in the port two days due to bad weather, 7 days hard work by putting complete equipment …
Taking into account that we set up a station for the first time, none of us had never been to Lampedusa, then the result is just PERFECT …..
We thank all the friends around the world to made QSO with us, all the sponsors, all the good people which helped us to have also a dream come true, CQWW CC (Randy K5ZD) and Gail K2RED for a nice plaque …
See you all in CQWW SSB and CW 2014….
