IOTA and DXpeditions

My lifetime dream to be "on the other side of the pileup" finally became a reality in November 2012. Being a member of ORCA DX and Contest Club I humbly asked Dave, VA7AM, ORCA member and at the same time a member of CCC - Caribbean Contesting Consortium, well known as PJ2T in the contests, whether I have a chance to join the team in one of the contests. I was invited for CQ WW CW 2012, before and after the event  team members had virtually unlimited time on the air under PJ2/home call. YES! The dream has turned to real pileups!
