NEWS UPDATE – Fred informs that he had to take his antenna down, and will leave Shemya tomorrow, Wednesday. Between 4 Dec 2021 and 24 Jan 2022 he made 1289 contacts with stations in 53 DXCCs. He realizes that not everyone who wanted to log him was able to do so, but he did his best to be on the air as much as possible. While Fred is not scheduled to return to Shemya this year, he is determined to find hams among those who will be scheduled to work up there, get in touch with them and encourage them to operate. He will explain to them the pitfalls he encountered, and keep us posted. [tnx VE3LYC]
