DX Expedition, Part 2
by Jerry, K3BZ
At our January meeting, Jerry K3BZ presented a video of the 2002 DXpedition to VP8THU – South Thule Island in the South Sandwich group of remote islands nearly in Antarctica, east of the Falkland Islands. The So. Sandwich group includes some of the most remote and perilous islands on the face of the planet. In 2002, So. Sandwich was followed by a stop at So. Georgia Island, as VP8GEO. It happens that another trip to these same two islands is taking place this year. VP8STI – So. Sandwich – last month, and VP8SGI – So. Georgia – this month. To commemorate this occasion, Jerry will present the So. Georgia video at our 2/25 meeting, showing Part 2 of the 2002 DXpedition. Don’t miss it.
