Digging into the past of the first multi-hopping DXpeditioner Danny Weil, VP2VB was another rich piece of history. Spending time in his home; Road Town of Tortola, British Virgin Islands, gave us a blend of history in its original setting.
Together with Austrian DocuFunk archives, headed by Paulina, OE1YPP and Wolf, OE1WHC, and meeting with Kenneth, VP2VK and George, VP2VQ and the local telecom authorities placed us straight back where it all once began. We have now collected most of the material, including Danny’s only existing interview to: https://www.qrz.com/db/VP2VB
We would like to thank our webmaster Vlad, W7/UA6JD for a super job all along, for keeping the web records fresh.
Some 50.000 fellow hams have already viewed the material. So, join the party and get to know the history of our great passion for the DX hunt.
We are currently reviewing the FT8 backup file for more QSOs and getting QSL card design ready for printing. It will be a 4-page, full color affair – for this special occasion. LoTW will soon follow.
Regards and let’s keep our planet together for more DX.
