Isle of Man a great DX location.

Three Amateurs from Scotland came to the Isle of Man to play radio; after a few hours working pileups they made around 2500 contacts around the World. The weather was poor, one operator maintained a regular coffee supply and they had a great time at this brilliant location.

Thanks go to James MD0MDI for the map (still about 200 contacts missing from the map) and thanks to the lads from Scotland for such a great effort promoting Amateur Radio.
