Next year is the 50th anniversary of my radio amateur license.
I wish to do something I've always dreamed of. Go to a 'wanted'
So far I have thought of Faeroes or Aland Islands, of which
it seems Faeroes to be
the most wanted country.
However, I have no previous experience, and
neither the necessary antenna-equipment.
Any suggestions to how and where to go? And what to bring?
Anytime next year between April and September?
please e-mail! See below.
my old 40 m windom is now up 2 m on the roof of our block!
