V73MT mission completed

2018-11-01 | Past DX peditions

My dxpedition to Majuro Atoll (OC-029) in Republic of Marshall Islands was completed successfully.

Number of QSOs was not much like usual, however I was satisfied with the results because there was no problems except for the low condition.

QSL card will be issued via my QSL manager Charles, M0OXO. LoTW is available.


 Please enjoy some pictures in Majuro for the time being....
