Book Review: “Up Two – Adventures of a DXpeditioner” by Roger G3SXW

“Up Two – Adventures of a DXpeditioner” has been my bedside read for the last week or so.

Made up of the fascinating accounts of the VooDoo Contest Group in places like Benin, Mayotte, Togo, Burkina Faso, Macau, Tristan da Cunha and more!

Up Two - the Book

 Are you a DX’er? Have you longed to be on the other side of the pile-ups? Do you dream of taking a rig to exotic locations? Do thoughts of mountains, oceans, and deserts send shivers down your spine? If your answer to any of the above questions is yes, you are in for a rare treat. This 240 page book spans over 30 years of G3SXW’s DX’pedition life experiences from 22 different rare countries. It is certain to bring you the vicarious thrills of operating from exotic places.
