Robert Felicite is the equivalent of blood in
the water for the usual DX sharks. He has a great message
on his QRZ page:
"Although Robert enjoys meeting people on
the air he asks that people bear in mind that for some, 3B9FR is
a new DXCC, not least a new IOTA and/or Band Slot. For this
reason he asks that people remember this when making
triple/quadruple (and many more) qso's on the same band and mode
when the pile up is heavy. Is is more than happy to work
everyone but please bear in mind the size of the pile up
and allow some others to make the qso as well. Thank you!"
Rodrigues Island is
a small volcanic island in the Indian Ocean, east of Mauritius,
of which it is a territory.
Google Maps covers it pretty well, pop 41700
On the north coast, the capital Port Mathurin
features colonial buildings including the former governor’s
residence. In the southwest, the François Leguat Giant Tortoise
and Cave Reserve is home to fruit bats and giant tortoises, plus
underground caves like the stalactite-filled Grande Caverne.
It looks absolutely bloody lovely, with white
sandy beaches at East end.

Straight in there... after an
afternoon getting trampled chasing Mongolia, this was
a much bigger delight and not on the cluster. Listen at 2:50
Cheers - Robert. I can't believe I grabbed
this so easily!

Workable signal saved by
SDR options - once again almost blotted by a ludicrously big
signal on 14.200 from S Europe. Grrrr...
The prop forecast alongside is one to bring joy
to the DX starved masses of the UK
