Earlier this year DX-World auctioned some signed flags by team members of VP8STI/VP8SGI and FT4JA.

Mario I2HBW won the flags and as since framed them. They now sit pride of place on his shack wall.


Readers may be interested to know that Mario’s QTH was a 150 year old farm, abandoned and in pieces when he bought it. It then took four years to restore and turn into a residence. Mario says it’s a good place for radio, on top of a hill and with a 360° clear view all around.

Below is a video of the installation of the big antenna system you see at Mario’s QTH. Certainly an impressive location and antenna!
