Mine was Tom Christian, VR6TC - Pitcairn Is.
Around 1972, I was at a club members QTH and he told me that VR6TC would QSO friends on the west coast.
Usually on 15 Meter SSB. He had a QSO with Tom on 15M SSB and had the QSL card to prove it
I then started reading material and the romance of the islands back then.
Snipets of Mutiny on the Bounty, etc.
The internet was almost non-existant at that time.
I said, one day I will have a QSO with Pitcairn Island!
I started truely
DXing in July 1989.
My first QSO with Pitcairn Island was with Tom, VR6TC (15M CW) on 7-FEB-1990.
Since then I have worked Pitcairn Is. on RTTY & SSB, 8 other times including VP6T on 23-JAN-2012
