VP8SGI South Georgia Islands : the chase ! (Epilog)

Hi all ! That's over !!
Thanks a lot (again) to the VP8 team for bringing us on air 2 Most Wanted DXCC, and 2 ATNO for most of us : it was a GREAT pleasure to chase them !
Since my last post, I finally could work them on 30M CW for a new band (the ACOM1000 was off and I worked them with 100W and my vertical, excellent conditions !), and I added the 12M SSB for a last new slot...
A total of 11 QSOs for this new one is again more than expected ! 
Thanks guys and have a safe back trip home...

VP8SGI South George Islands : the chase ! #3

Hi all, some new QSOs with VP8SGI here...
I could add the 15M & 20M SSB slots for a new mode on February 2nd & 3rd.
Very early this morning (0300UTC) I could add the 40M CW before going to job, and, this  afternoon, I finally heard them & worked them on 10M CW for 2 new bands ! ^^

I am now especially looking for them on 30M & maybe 80M before the end of their activity...
Good luck to all !

VP8SGI South George Islands : the chase ! #2

Hi, the chase continues here but with a very few time possibility because of job...
My 15M RTTY QSO is OK, and yesterday I could add the 20M CW on my first call !
Yesterday evening I listened to them on 40M & 30M CW but as they were strong, the split was chaotic... no chance.
This morning I could work them on 20M SSB for a new mode !
I am still looking for them on 10M & low bands if possible...
Good luck to all !
