Rob -PA2R, licensed since 1987 on HF as PA3ERC and PA5ET and recently changed his call for the last time to PA2R. Since I'm licensed I have been very active at the famous Dutch contest station PI4COM. Since 1994 I devoted all my holidays to DX-peditions that started in 1994 to HB0 as a try-out. Since than I have been in VP5, FG, J7, FM, J6, 9Y4, 6Y, ZF9, PJ7, FS, V4, VP2E, 8Q, V2, VP2M, 8P, J3, J8, TI9 and OY most of the time self-supporting. My favourite mode has always been CW on reasonable high speed but I also like to work SSB and RTTY. The pile-ups can't be big enough, I love them. As profession I work as an ICT Specialist for a big West European transport company.

This DX-pedition to Banaba will be biggest DX-pedition challenge so far, as leader of this great team I am convinced that the T33C operation will be a big successful because he have the best of the best on board.
