A little bit about the Six-Gs
Some years ago many members of the Six-Gs group were involved in mega-DXpeditions – some of the most successful and largest in history. But unless budget is no constraint, large scale DXpeditions place limitations on which countries can accommodate a major expedition. We felt that there was a lot of enjoyment to be gained from small self-managed expeditions, done on “fly-in, fly-out” basis, and where all equipment was hand carried to the destination without the use of freight shippers.
Our first application of these principles was in 2014 at TX6G in the Austral Islands, which made some 78,000 QSOs. Encouraged by this, we ventured to Niue in 2015, making some 47,000 QSOs as E6GG. In 2016, we travelled to Chatham island and put ZL7G on the air.
