Ham Radio Odyssey | XR0Y The Journey Begins…
Unfolding Of An Odyssey?
A journey is an explanation of one’s imagination, perhaps Stan, SQ8X has embarked on something extraordinary that is more than a journey? His DXpedition to Rapa Nui with another planned in the distant future to a distant land is moreso reminiscent of an odyssey that is a long, eventful wandering.
Perhaps, it is not unlike Homer’s Illiad, a timeless mythological story where spirit and character is tested again, again?
Rapa Nui evoked powerful images from our distant past as well Jan Mayen a volcanic island located 950km west of Norway in the cold Atlantic tantalizes the adventuresome spirit that speaks too many of us.
His Odyssey Begins.
Take a moment, while reading the sub-titles, and imagine adventurers past and future who dared the odds. Stan’s story is compelling like many DXpeditions who risk much in the face of danger.
It is why, given SQ8X’s youth, that something extraordinary is underway, one that I believe, is an odyssey for ham radio.
Believe in your signal.
