70TH ANNIVERSARY RETRO-DXPEDITION TO MADEIRA ISLANDS, CT3BH
QRV June 20th - 23rd, 2016
GOING BACK TO THE YEARS OF THE PAST WHEN IT WAS ALL DIFFERENT, BY OH2BH
While searching for those rare young DXing souls, Martti, OH2BH has decided to bring back and treasure those great people and locations that once introduced him to joy, provided learning, and urged him to look at the world from a missionary DXing perspective. Rare and distant locations always affect visiting DXers, compelling them to view this wonderful world and its differences in a new way. Rare and new countries are typically rare for a reason.
Martti’s 2016 anniversary journey will take him to many of those original locations, allowing you to refresh your memories at the other end of the radio circuit. The ensuing year may even bring something new: DXing re-born every morning as the Palos Verdes Sun Dancers commence their rituals of bringing back radio propagation to those who Deserve. The Deserving is here spelled with a capital D.
So, join the bandwagon in Madeira! Use the password “QBH70” to put the pileup on hold and share one of your memories right on the spot. At the ripe age of 70 or more it is wonderful to have those ancient years return just like yesterday. This mode of DXing is called RETRO DXpeditioning.
BH-SH AWARD (Back Home - Sweet Home)
After CT3BH, there will be more. Dotting the world is the greatest pastime of DXers, even though returning to one’s sweet home tends to beat such dotting. Qualifying for the BH-SH award is a 14-dot mission: each country with OH2BH operating alone and/or as part of a group during 2016 gives you 1 point, whereas working Martti at his home gives you 5 points – you need 10 countries to qualify. Good luck in your hunt for the BH-SH award! Activities so far in 2016 include CU2KG/CR2X, Z68BH/Z60A, and ZA/OH2BH. – de OH2BH
