1A0C DXpedition – Order of Malta
The Order of Malta’s Italian Relief Corps (CISOM) Amateur Radio Station
Starting on Dec 28th and running through January 6, 2015 check the bands for this awesome contact! 1A0C is an Italian DXpedition to Malta to provide humanitarian relief, medical assistance and emergency support for the victims of natural disasters in the Mediterranean.
This group also provides communication via Amateur Radio in the event of an emergency or disaster. Currently the group is on the air making DX contacts and this is a good one to add to your log. You can find them working all Amateur bands, but 10m USB was the best for me.
The QSL card is really nice and also the monies that go to them to process the card are also used for their operations as a charitable donation.
