This time our trip was not much different compared to all the other islands I have done in the past, antennas, radio, car, tent, etc. was the same as always, except from the weather it was the worst one we ever had on an expedition, very much rain, but the worse was the strong winds from West/South West direction which result in more or less caused damage to my Bamby antenna.

I donít think I have mentioned this before, but it is really good to have my guest Susanne with me, she is a very positive person in general, Iím impressed, because when I sometimes get a little negative, mainly about the WX she say come on itís not that bad, we are together, thatís nice when I think back when home again.

We started out from home at Saturday 29. July around noon for the ferry to Fyn. After we arrived at Fyn island we drove around 40 km. to the Drejoe island ferry in city Svendborg. Ferry trip to Drejoe take 1 hour 15 minutes, we arrived on the island at 14:00utc Saturday afternoon.

Soon after did I start to setup Bamby, generator etc. My first call was at 17:00utc and first in log was Mr. Finn 47DX011 via GW 100 km. We had agreed to meet up, so that I could test my antennas was ok, which they were. The propagation over those two activity days was not good, I managed therefor to log only 135 stations in total, longest contact was to Uruguay and the biggest surprise was from Faroe Islands where Mr. Terje 52AT101 called in. It is not often we hear stations from north Atlantic it was nice to log Mr. Terje and have a longer QSO in Danish language. Last CQ from 47DX/FY011 was at Monday 31. July around noon. We was home again Monday evening 18:00utc.

Many thanks for the support from Finn 47DX011 and Darran 26DX047 and also to John 47DX101 for the recordings.
