2001, 2008) according to research. The team is indebted to Deputy Lord Lieutenant, Sir Hew Dalrymple for allowing them to land on his island. UPDATE (September 26th): «DX-World.net» reports that the team consists of Declan/EI6FR, Col/MM0NDX, Jonathan/MM0OKG and a cameraman. The tentative dates are the weekend of April 17-18th, 2021.
