LU7YS is in the Southern part of Argentina
I had a nice email chat with my friend Elliot, N6PF, and he and I agree that this Free Range 300 DX CW Challenge could be a “thing”. I have to say, the more I get into it – the more it makes so much sense. When the DXCC “ATNO’s Needed” are burning a hole in your britches (waiting forever), you can enjoy working other real DXpeditions (like KL7RRC on NA-210). Or maybe even Tillamook Rock. DX does not have to be 11K miles away. When conditions stink – anything is good – but the FREQ 300 does lay down some rules (very gently and in a highly pragmatic manner). In fact – take the idea and modify it like you’d modify a piece of gear – to make it better.
Choose any mix of entities from DXCC and any from IOTA, and you will be as excited as when there is a new one on in a major DXpedition. Now – do it with 5 watts and CW – and voila! Instant fun.
