Dx Pedition Salina Island 3/6 Oct. 2013

Why is this mini-peditions right?

The goal is to operate from an IOTA island without having to go too far from home and without spending too much. Salina island is very close and easy to reach!

Those who, like me, have already operated from a IOTA know that it doesn’t matter if Salina is low in the most-wanted list; we are sure that the pile-ups will be there and the fun will be assured.

Just like the big Dxpeditions, we have created a dedicated website for this next activity of ours, without any pretension but with great desire to make things right. The period chosen is the low season, when the “hordes” of tourists have left the island to ourselves.

For some it will be an ON AIR “baptism” from a IOTA: the beginning of a harmony that will lead us to further adventures …
