Operator

One man DXpedition by Craig VK5CE

I’m a passionate IOTA activator and chaser. I started in 2010 and I’ve been addicted to the adventure and excitement of DXpeditioning ever since. For most of the IOTA’s they have been one person activations.

In recent years I’ve been lucky to be part of teams to put the NEW IOTAs of VK6ISL OC-294, S79C AF-119 and ZL9A OC-286 on the air. This has been a great chance to make new friendships and learn from other experienced operators.

2017 is my busiest year as an activator with VK5CE/P OC-228 and VK5CE/3 OC-196 in  January, VK5CE/7 OC-233 in April, VK5CE/8 OC-198 in October and now this adventure in November. I look forward to giving you a new IOTA.
