IOTA EU-054 results

On 21-23 of August we have actived EU-054, Marettimo Island. We have contacted more than 3,000 stations, on SSB and CW. Unfortunately the 30m CW operations were slowed down due to the very-hard pile-up. Marettimo Is, is a Mediterranean-Pearl island, with a small arab-style village, with about 500 inhabitants. During the operations we have used a multiband dipole for 80m-10m, a 4 elements Yagi and a dipole for 30m. The callsign used was IF9/IT9AUP, and 3 stations were active in the same time (IT9AUP and IK1TZO on CW, IK1TZO on SSB and IW1DGL on VHF). QSL card via IK1TZO (bureau) or direct to the address below. Tnx to Giacomo IT9AUP, IK1JJD Gianfranco, Mario and Domenico.
