DXpedition Recordings

On April 20, 2006, the Aves Island 2006 DXpedition YX0A initiated its transmissions and several hours later, our 80 meter SSB and digital operator Jose Valdes YV5LIX suffered a severe heart attack that took away his life.

His body was airlifted by helicopter to the frigate and sailed to Caracas.
