Now QRT.    I have once again,  traveled to St Pierre - Miquelon Island from 7 February to 18 February 2014, and operated in the CQ WW RTTY WPX contest over the 7 February Weekend, and also in the ARRL International DX Contest CW over the 15 February Weekend.  During the rest of the week I operated RTTY as much as possible, on as many bands as possible for my antennas.  Please Click Here, or on the above link for more details and some pictures of previous visits to Miquelon Island. A previous QSL Card is just below near the bottom, for example of this very friendly island.

 In September 2011, I traveled on a DxPedition to SAIPAN, Northern Mariana Islands as W6HGF/KH0 21-30 September 2011, my focus was on RTTY during the CQ WW RTTY contest.  I took the QSL card picture as I was walking down the beach near the American War Memorial, the island in the background is Managha Island, popular toursist destination for day trips.

In March 2011 I traveled to Miquelon Island and operated as FP/W6HGF.  The picture on the QSL card was taken by my son-in-law Mike, from a small hill near the hotel, looking down on the beach where my antennas were located, just about in the center of the beach in this picture.  Mike made a special courier trip to Miquelon to bring me the RTTY interface cables.

I went back to Miquelon Island in February 2012 for another experience with the northern winters, and participated in two back to back contests.  The CQ WPX RTTY contest on the first weekend, and the ARRL DX CW contest on the second weekend.  The highlight was over 100 QSO's on 160 during the Arrl Contest.  The worst was that after a hard winter storm went through one night, it iced up, and then blew all my antennas down, and I caught a bad cold after staying outside to get the antennas back up, which lasted long after the trip was over.  I missed all the deadlines for getting my contest logs submitted, but I was able to get everything uploaded to LOTW.   Press here for more information on my 2012 Miquelon Island trip.
