2018 DXpedition to the Irish Sea – Scotland Crew

On Tuesday, 7th of August 2018 me DK5NJ and Michael DB6NT started our DXpedition to Scotland. After a two days trip by car and ferry via Dover we were QRV from August 9th to August 12th from the Isle of Withorn in IO74TQ13IH. There we stayed at the Burrowhead Holiday Village which is a former military station. Our cottage there was a perfect takeoff into the direction of the Isle of Man and to parts of Wales and England.

DB6NT, DC7YS, DC8TM, DF3TS
DF9IC, DG8EB,
DK4RC, DK5NJ, DL4SBK

Here is a PowerPoint-Presentation of the whole DXpedition made by Roland, DK4RC

We made 242 QSOs on 10 GHz and higher, 36 confirmed first international connections on the bands of 24 GHz to 122 GHz and 2 first connections on 660 nm (Laser). But the most important thing is: We all had a lot of fun! 73 de DK5NJ
