Photos received from S21: transport to the site, operating room, downtown Dhaka, night ferry to Bhola island. Thanks Alex & Derek.
G3KHZ, SM6CVX, G4EDG, DL6KVA + S21ED and S21TV activated Bhola & St Martins islands.
The two Bangladesh IOTAs are rare.
AS-140 has not been activated since 2005 (claimed by 10.6%)
AS-127 has not been activated since 2011 (claimed by 13.4%)
We have timed the Dxpedition so that, hopefully, by mid-October the Monsoon season will have ended. Our team from Europe are veterans of many successful DXpeditions, in particular the many island IOTAs of Papua New Guinea.
