I really enjoy IOTA and after a lot of effort I have achieved the IOTA 500 Island Groups certificate for M0URX.
Many of the Islands worked to gain this award are thanks to the DXpeditioning skills and expertise of the Russians. Chasing some of these far away Islands have required some effort on both sides, from the DXpediton perspective and the DX chaser, especially with being at sun spot minimum.
DXpeditions include RT92KA Alyumka Island AS-092, RT9K/0 Dobrzhansogo Island AS-203, RI1F Viktoriya Island EU-190, RT65KI Idlidlya Island AS-065 R23RRC Pitchiy Island AS-091. Many of the expeditions have been expertly put together by the Russian Robinson Club.
VE3LYC Cezar & his team has also provided me the chance to work some great IOTA expeditions like ZL9A Antipodes Island OC-286. Right…. now to work the next 500?
