HS/OH4MFA DX-pedition 1999


My first ever part-time DX pedition took place in Thailand 10. - 26. 11. 1999. Only thirteen hours of active operating, but it was great fun! I was also operating in the CQWW DX CW contest multi/single category from HSAC. Here is some pictures from this operation and station.

Antennas at HS0AC

My XYL is attaching QSL labels to QSLs
My XYL was very helpful with QSLs

I have noticed some copying errors, when QSLs come in from bureau. New cards are sent to correct stations as they are needed. Sorry for delay in QSLing caused by my bad ears.
