DXpedition to Kingman Reef

Date: 25 OCT 2000..UTC: 19:27..Band: 28.465 MHz..RST: 59..Mode: SSB

This QSL is confirming the very first DX contact made by W5DXS, the club station call of
the Heart Of Texas DX Society. The operator of this contact was Larry Merritt, KC5BFM
and hopefully by doing so, it was to be the starting point that would be setting an example
of the club's interest in DXing, contesting and activities that enrich all of Amateur Radio.

As of March 29, 2016 this DX was deleted from the ARRL DXCC List. This in no way alters the
significance of this first QSL by W5DXS and the goals of HOTDXS will always remain the same.

Good DXing and 73, de W5DXS.

After K5K, Kingman Reef was deleted this DX was 1st runner up in the W5DXS log and is now the first DX confirmed.
