IFF-376, DCI-IM171 - Villa Hanbury

We are back from the mini DXpedition into Hanbury Botanical Garden ended with success Sunday 11 april 2010, with the callsign IQ1SM/p, made his first IFFA operation.
Eight members (IW1PNJ, I1NVU, IZ1PKV, IW1RFB, IW1PPM, IZ1OSP, IZ1OQB, I1UWF) have used the mike and the keyer for seven hours from the wonderful Hanbury Botanical Garden (IFF-376) while I1YHU, from his QTH, placed spots on cluster.
Hanbury Botanical Garden has a surface of 18 hectares, it is located few Km far from the French border.
The history began during 1867 when Sir Thomas Hanbury bought the area fashinated from the beauty of the place trasforming it, during several years, in a garden.
Today the property belongs to the Italian State, while administration is granted to "Università degli Studi di Genova".
IFFA rule requests that transmissions must be done from inside of a park. In our case this was possible as the Garden's Director, Mr. Campodonico, allowed us the entrance into the garden and granted us the usage of a wide room "Sala dei Camini" of the Villa Hanbury.
This building, placed in the middle of the Hanbury Botanical Garden, has the reference DCI-IM171 for Castle Award.
Entrance of cars into the Gardens is not allowed therefore we have transported our equipments by hands to the Villa.
We moved: IC706 and IC 7400, linear amplifier, three power supplies, two vertical antennas, three PC, cables, etc.
We were ready to transmit from 10 to 40 m., actually the propagation suggested us to work only 20 and 40 m.
We began as I1UWF/p but, as soon as we reached the quorum, we switched to IQ1SM/p; both calls are valid for the two references.
Our operation has been a success, we made more than 400 QSO's, many of them with non European OM. We have closed our transmissions at 5.00 pm due to bad weather conditions.
The high union of the group permitted this event. We have to thanks all operators, but the hunters too, that with their discipline allowed regular transmissions.

See you from the next Park... 73, Gianni I1UWF
