VX8X

Today I worked an interesting station on Ellice Island (NA-192, VE, Canada). See map below. Make sure click the [-] button a few times so you can zoom out and really see where this guy was. I’d like to know how many people inhabit this Island. I’d also like to know how far is this ham’s nearest ham neighbor. I’d bet it’s at least 1 ionosphere skip to the next guy!

VX8X on Ellice Island

I have learned that nobody lives here. This was a DXpedition. John Boudreau apparently "drove" across an ice bridge to get to this island and setup this small trailer.

I am seriously chuffed that I made contact - even if it was completely accidental.
