A radio expedition to Saint Lucia J6
by Lothar Linge, DJ7ZG
The idea of a J6 - DXpedition to Saint Lucia West Indies was born one afternoon during a visit to Ju, DL2ZAE. Ju, a well known CW - operator, is handicapped and he could only dream to go on DXpedition himself. For Babs, DL7AFS and me it became an ultimate challenge to take Ju along on one of our DXpeditions.

During the 4O3T DX-pedition to Montenegro some 100.000 QSO's were made. Where incoming QSL's came through Ranko YT6A the work was split and Martti OH2BH took care of Asia, Bob N6OX was responsible for the Americas while Hans PB2T did Europa, Africa and the Middle East. DF3CB labelling software was used to answer the QSL's. All regional managers had assistants to perform their duties. PB2T had great support from his "neighbour" amateur Albert PA5O. After having answered some 20.000 QSO’s directly they would like to share their experience as QSL manager. This experience may help you to improve your chance for a quick and succesful reply in the future.

The first time I operated from the ITU in Geneva was during World Radio Communications Conference 2003, that I attended for work. The station then had a special callsign 4U1WRC assigned. After my first visit several other visits followed, always as a delegate to ITU meetings. In 2004 I became life member of IARC the International Amateur Radio Club.
