Great thaks to Hugues DUPUY - President of the "Les amis de I'ile du Large Saint Marcouf" organisation.
I will appreciate, if you send small donation to the "Les amis de I'ile du Large Saint Marcouf"- organisation. Thanks!

I want you in my log, so please help me by following these guidelines:
  • If you cannot hear me– please don’t call. Wait until propagation and conditions favor your QTH for one or more of the Bands / Modes.
  • Unless you hear otherwise from me, I will ALWAYS be operating in SPLIT MODE throughout the DXpedition. All splits will be in the "normal" ranges, e.g. up 1-5 for CW, 5-10 for SSB.
  • During SSB pileups, please use common phonetics, do NOT call continually without listening or call over a station being worked.
  • During ALL pileups, listen for YOUR call on the comeback.
  • I'm not impressed by those who add to the QRM by constantly calling out of turn.
  • Please do not Tune Up on any of our TX frequencies or any of my RX slots.
  • Resist those “insurance” QSOs. I want to maximize unique QSOs, not Dupes.
