> Building the contest station in Azores has been my dream since the very early

> As one can see, it's been quite a long project first analyzing what part of
> Europe we should be located, investigating out the possible countries in that
> area and ultimately finding the local contacts and QTH. And of course finally
> setting up the station. In the process several alternative location, such as

> As having a privilege of being the operator at CU2X in CQWW 2008 I want to
