Comment ;  I participated many expeditions and contests but this Cho island was the most impressive place.  I visited Zone 2 and many islands before but Cho island is most difficult place due to dangerous rock island,mosquitos,no drinking and washing water and so on....
It was so tough rock island especially I am handicapped in my one leg,Hi.
It was best place for ham and I never forget in my life.

Comment ;  It was great honor for me to operate AS-168 Cho island.
Now,radio permission from Cho island is very difficult like P5 license permission.
I am sorry we could not service more and more .(6033 QSOs during 54 hours) During operation of 15M SSB on 03 Oct,we had some problem of radio and so could not service fully. If we can get permission again,I will participate also.
If HL and P5 can unit in a future,we can get permission easily than this time.Many thanks for QSO and hope to meet you on air soon.

Comment ;  It was exciting travel. I got up and slept with pile up sound and I could up grade myself as a DXers through this expedition. We have too many equipments and antennas but it was also great experience.I respect our club's senior members for their DX spirit and challenge.  Cho island accepted us and we were very proud to stand on Cho island.  I love DX because I can have a chance to challenge and know it will never conquer.  Let's go..KDXC..
