After the DXpedition to Norfolk Island, there was still some holidays left (unbelievable, right?). So we were looking for a place to go for CQWW DX Contest CW in November. Our QSL manager Mario DJ2MX gave us a hint to ask at Z37M in Macedonia. So we asked the man behind the club station: Venco Z36W. And he immediately agreed. So Anja, Tom DL5LYM and I had a week off near Stip, Macedonia.

Norfolk Island (VK9N)
Maybe this idea was a left-over when we had some drinks in Portugal (http://neu.dl1mgb.com/ontour/2002.php#ct). Joerg DL8WPX had this burning desire to visit Jim Smith VK9NS on his Norfolk Island, east of Australia. So I took this wish and started to organize a trip for a small group of eight people.
We not only met Jim Smith and his wife Kirsti, but made new friends, had a lot of pile-ups and even found a brewery that became our favorite pub for three weeks.
