HSØ/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 HSØAC. Here is some pictures from this operation and station.
My RAST membership card.
Here I am at the door of HSØAC clubstation at AIT campus. 45 km North of central Bangkok.
At the HSØAC shack 15. 11. operating as HSØ/OH4MFA. Rigs: ICOM IC-781, KENWOOD TL-922 amplifier.
Antennas at HSØAC: TH7DXX, A3, 40 and 80 m dipoles. Note the huge transmission line on the background! It give a bit QRM to some bands.
On the left is Butternut HF6V, which was installed prior to CQWW CW contest for 40 and 80 m use.
In front is Tham, E21CJN, on running station and Hide, JR5XPG, on the back hunting for multipliers.

16.3.2000 QSL-cards have been collected from print and labels are attached. Bureau cards have been sent to OH bureau on week 15/2000. Directly received QSLs have been answered.
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.
