After 14 days, unfortunately for many operators reaches the end of the DXpedition 9M0L Pulau Layang-Layang (IOTA AS-051-SPRATLY) classified into 29th in the DXCC list 2011.
The DXpedition was not different from other entities more difficult if not for the bad propagation conditions, in particular here to South America can be observed in
the maps presented in the Club Log only 100 stations in South America had the privilege of being in DXpedition log.
We have reports of operators in Brazil that remained the long 14 days in expectation of a DXpedition QSO was the case with experienced operator Ademir de Castro, PS8ACL. Ademir, reported maintained QSO with Dxpedition and did not appear in the log. I also kept a QSO on the second day of the expedition and my callsign is not in the log.
The truth is that many “hunters difficult entities” were left out due to propagation conditions and due to heavy artillery and the stations of Europe and USA in the pileup.
Another point to be observable are the comments that emerged during the DXpedition in Network Clusters. Long time not seen something so degrading, absurd comments. It is necessary
to rethink the real purpose and good judgment before making any comment in the cluster.
What to expect from Radio Amateurs who leave their homes, leaving the family to give us a chance to work a rare entity. Yes friends, we have a QSO with Spratly and our prefix is not in the log,
but by no means do we question or nasty comments in the cluster network for those brave “Hams DXpeditions”. Flaws exist and we must accept them with parsimony and tranquility. Soon we will
have other DXpeditions for SPRATLY because SPRATLY did not leave the map.
