Crossing was by ferry about 200 Swedish Krone (about £25 for three one way)
Crossing is through the EU-138 Archipeligo and so many pretty islands. All could count but I wanted to activate the most south and the lighthouse. No Utlipann this trip maybe next one (25km further off shore)
Crossing WX was flat calm, almost a mirror and 27 degrees !
The qth will be right at the bottom where pointing... about 3km walk.
What a view!
Note the beer... essential DXpeditioners refreshment in hot sun!
Unofficial DXpedition observers. Johnny SM7UCZ and Christine XYL
I also ran a W3EDP that ran from the top of the light house to the operating table (decking).
One happy DXpeditioner... different ferry and route back to SM7UCZ QTH.
Was spotted in cluster a few times:
