*DX RESOURCE* Island Fever by Rob Jones


If you’ve ever dreamed of mounting a DXpedition to a far flung part of the world, yet it has never come to pass, this book could easily be a trigger for something closer to home.

Packed with potential IOTA activations, low noise environments, spots with a large body of saltwater on the doorstep, Island Fever is a great book.
