CT1BWW ON DX´PEDITIONS
|Amateur Radio offers a wide variety of
experiences, DXing, competing in contests or
Im also devoted DXpeditioner to Islands Lighthouses or Castles and Fortresses from Portugal.
I use a Kenwood TS440S withR7,and Th3MK3 and inverted V for 40 and 80 meters the power come from a Generator Bosh G800TL. I was on following Islands: Berlenga , Farilhões Islands, Insua , Pessegueiro , Culatra , Armona, Cabanas , Tavira , Papoa , Nª.Sra.Rosário , CªAbobora , Bugio .
Lighthouses: Berlenga , Cape Roca , Guia, Sta.Marta , Espichel , S.Julião da Barra, Cape Raso, Gibalta , Esteiro , Cape Sines, Cape. S. Vicente, Cape Sta. Maria, Bugio, Vila Real Sto. António, I was operating also Castles and fortress: Ourém, Tomar, Insua, Alcoutim, Castro Marim, S.joão, Sertã, Amieira, Belver, Vila Velha Ródão,etc.
Most individuals enjoy challenge, particularly one which enables them to accomplish something while accepting it. Dxing itself is a challenge Dxpeditions, even more so. Im not talking about vacation to a island where an amateur operates his station between parties and trips to the beach. I mean a trip to an island, usually involving difficult problems with transportation, licensing, weather, equipment's, expenses. Just how these many advantages of DXing and Dxpeditions can be put to use actively preserve amateur radio throughout the world.
If is important initiating amateur radio is more important to promote activities and hamspirit and encouraging amateur radio in these places, and by actively supporting utilisation of the full amateur radio spectrum.
See you again on another Dxpedition! In case you are interesting on Islands Lighthouses , Castles or Fortresses of Portugal .

FIRST DXPEDITION AT PESSEGUEIRO ISLAND THE SUNSET
|So you really want to go on a DXpedition?
Over the last few years a large of number of DXpeditions have set off for exotic island countries. Most made it there and back sucessfully, giving DXers " a new one" for their DXCC, Worked All Zones, IOTA or Lighthouse or other award. Bur a few had problems. All three phases of an expedion - getting there, staying there - and getting back - caused trouble. If you are considering a Dxpedition yourself then you must planning everything very well you must studying the place, list of all material, premetions and license, local contacts. It's a great pleasure to remember here some of my personal friends and great DX'peditionaries: MARTTI (OH2BH), ROBERTO(EA4DX), PEKKA(OH1RY), NÚRIA(EA3WL), JOSEP(EA3BT), MAX(I8NHJ), FRED(DK1BT), OLLI (OH0XX) , EDDIE(EA3NY), GERARD(PA3AXU), BERT(PA3GIO, ANN (WA1S) FALK(DK7YY), FRED(DK1BT), TOM(DL2OAP), ULI(DL8OBQ), MAR(DL3DXX), TOM (N4XP), PAUL(F6EXV) , BERT(PA3GIO), DAVE (K3PL) , BABS (DL7AFS) and many many others...
