The Other Side of the World by N6VI
January 2020
CQWW at 3B8M CQWW DX CW From 3B8 by Marty Woll, N6VI

Many of us have had the chance to operate DX contests from outside the Lower 48, but how far from home can you get, really? The answer, of course, is about 12,000 miles – yes, the other side of the globe! I had the chance to do just that last month (November).

The adventure began when Olof G0CKV started assembling a team to operate the CQ Worldwide CW contest from the island of Mauritius, which lies east of Madagascar in the Indian Ocean. Dick N6AA got an invitation for himself and Art W6XD from Olof, but the team size was limited by the expected number of operating positions and the number of people the location could house. As some of the original participants dropped out, room opened up for another, and I was pleased to fill that spot. The final team consisted of Olof, Dick, Art, me, Denny KX7M from Northern California and past ARRL CEO Dave K1ZZ.
