The TRUE paradise! Beautiful pure sandy beaches with crystalline waters

About Two hundred some miles from Natal on  northeastern Brazil's coast,


This is the one of the few locations in Brazil where the sun sets into the sea.  

Like São Tomé and Principe Archipelago,( Our Last DX'pedition) this islands are also the remains of volcanic mountains jutting up from the Atlantic Ocean.

The archipelago is called Fernando de Noronha , the islands  .like There are twenty small islands, one larger one, and scores of beautiful beaches where clean sand, pure water and fabulous marine life abound.  


Claimed by Américo Vespúcio for the Portuguese in 1503, early settlers built a fortress, now in ruins, at Vila dos Remedios, the largest populated town. (See map.) The islands were a prison, then a convenient stopover point for early flights to Europe, and the facilities used by one European airline gave the name Air France to a local community. There was also a WW II air base. Today, the Brazilian Air Force maintains a base there.  

Although the islands support a large variety of wildlife species, they are relatively unpopulated and tourism is restricted to 420 visitors at a time. In fact, the longer you stay, the higher your permit fee will go. There is one paved road, Brazil's shortest national highway, one hotel and many pousadas which fill to capacity in the summer season.

In the 1970's almost three-quarters of the archipelgo was created into the National Marine Sanctuary of Fernando de Noronha, the PN Fernando de Noronha, to preserve both the land and marine environment. Of particular interest is the nature conservancy effort saving the sea turtles (shown above. Click on the thumbnail for a larger image and description.)

While Fernando de Noronha is now a model environmental protection area, it is also one of Brazil's almost hidden treasure. The clarity and warmth of the water, on the equatorial stream, and the abundant underwater life makes these islands a mecca for divers and snorkelers. There are over two hundred species of fish, plus dolphins, sea turtles, and sharks to view and photograph.

Fernando de Noronha  is situated at 3 degree 51' South and 32 degree 25'West in the South Atlantic Ocean, Natal Coast of Brazil IOTA: SA-003,  CQ ZONE:11             Time difference: UTC +/- 4 hours.

Milestones and Deliverables

Q1 -- What it's better for you? Making radio? Travel to  exotic places? Help others?

To get an correct answer. let me show our ideas: What do you think to make a small vacation with main objective to help some other persons with your knowledge and some humanitarian  helps like medicaments, school material, and also  some used computers or radios transceivers.                                                                                                                                                You can also play radio, or sightsing . TAKE A QUICK LOOK HERE

Q2 -- What do you think about Amateur Radio, Internet and the Future? 

Nowadays on " Information ERA"  it's simple to get some information about an specified DXpedition or any rare station particularly. Just a simple "click" on a Internet Packet Cluster and you find out where is the station you are looking for. About few years ago some "entities" countries we're very rare and today they have a lot of stations active. But, DX is still a very exciting area on our Hobby! 

Q3 -- Do you think it's important DX Awards? 

We think Awards it's very important, because if you are working for any Award like  DXCC, WAZ or IOTA,EADX100, or other  programme you are envolved on challenge. We must have an objective .                         

Q4 -- QSL CARDS? What your idea about E-QSL? 

QSL cards are  still important to maintain our hobby alive. If we decide to accept E-QSL, one of the most interesting thinks on our Hobby it's broken, i mean the QSL Card Collection. Collecting Cards like stamps by themes (Islands, Lighthouses, Castles, Special event, Persons, Equipments, Antennas, Animals, etc etc) it's also one of the best things we've on our hobby.                                                                                                                                              Postcard cards or QSL with panoramic view with signature of the QSL Manager it's unique to set a high value a personal relationship.                                                                                                  You can also show the card to everyone. There are lot of attractive and Beautiful QSL cards.

Q5 -- How you classified a Great DX'er ? 

I know a fellow using simple Wire Dipoles and a barefoot station, as more DXCC Countries than others with Big antennas and Amplifiers. What's the secret? He is a Super SWL operator .     This is a GREAT DX'er.  Of course he is now finishing his possibilities because the Countries missed are very difficult to work with his working conditions. But, We want to send the message that there are no different from Operators. 

Projected ship date: February 14th.
