The title of best  VHF DX-expedition has been awarded to EI/ON5GS. Runner ups were 5R8EM and DJ8MS (LA/, SM/, OH/).

ON5GS activated two really wanted locator squares in Ireland and made a nice one man show during tough conditions.

He was surprised during a lecture in his local radioclub whe PA4EME was giving a presentation there about propagation. Somewhere in the middle this slide showed up….
Text Box: Best VHF DX-expedition 2009

In 2009 there were two categories in which expeditions could be awarded: moonbounce and normal. In the section moonbounce the trophy was awarded to 5Z4EME (PE1L, PA3CEE, PA3EWP)  with E51EME and V5/KT6Q as runner ups. In the other section the trophy was for the Ukrain team UX5UL, UT6UG, UY5UG.

The oneman show from ON5GS is also visible on YouTube. Hit the picture to see it. If you can read Dutch, you can also read about his, but also from other winners and runner ups, in my VHF-columns that I wrote for CQ-PA Magazine.

Best VHF DX-expedition 2011

 

The 2011 election was a close contest. In the section EME, the 1st prize goes to C56EME with 7P8EME and 8P9DL/8P9MS/8P9HP as runner ups. In the section meteorscatter, the 1st prize goes to C37MS with 7P8EME and US8ZAL/P as runner ups.

 

The T-shirts that go with the price were printed with the new MMMonVHF logo. It is looking almost the same as the old one but now the new teammembers are added in the decoded text box.
