News and information service for Banaban Network Worldwide!
The Dx Adventure Radio Club (DA-RC) is pleased to introduce its latest member in the Pacific Ocean area…320DA011 Karl. Based on the secluded Micronesian isle of Banaba, Karl is a well known and respected Freeband DXer in the Oceania region who commutes between his homeland in Western Kiribati (224 Division) and neighbouring Banaba Island every few months for employment purposes. Therefore, Karl has also been issued with the callsign 224DA011.
When he’s not behind the microphone chasing DX, Karl is committed to improving the lives of children on the unique island setting in his role as school teacher at the Banaba Island Elementary School. Specialising in Social Sciences (anthropology, communication, economics, geography, history, politics, psychology and sociology), Karl teaches children aged between 11 and 14 years in Forms 1, 2, 3 and 4 who travel to Antreen each day from Banaba’s other three villages: Umwa (Ooma, Uma), Tabewa (Tapiwa, Tabwewa) and Buakonikai.
On behalf of all members, welcome to the Club, 320DA011 Karl. We look forward to supporting your IOTA operations in any way we can and making many great radio contacts with you on 27 MHz in the future.
