South Sandwich and South Georgia Islands"

by: Ned Stearns, AA7A

Ned Stearns has been an active ham radio operator for over 50 years, collecting many operating achievement awards including Top of the Honor Roll, 5BWAZ, Satellite DXCC, and the first ever 11-band DXCC (160 through 2 meters, inclusive). He is a past ARRL Vice Director for the Southwestern Division, the current DXAC member for this Division and a four-time past President of the Central AZ DX Association. He and his wife Jan live in Scottsdale, AZ.

He recently retired from General Dynamics as an Electrical Engineer and was principally involved with the development of communication systems for the US Government.

Recently, Ned was invited to join the Intrepid DX Group and participate in the wildly successful DXpeditions to South Sandwich (VP8STI) and South Georgia Islands (VP8SGI) in the South Atlantic. His professional RF background and his many years of experience in participating in contest DXpeditions to Africa with the VooDoo Contest Group contributed mightily to this demanding effort.

Ned promises to provide some stunning sights and sounds from some of the most remote places on earth.
