FT/X, Kerguelen Island
Gildas, TU5KG, is now active as FT5XT/MM off of Kerguelen Island. Operating as Maritime Mobile (/MM)
does not count for DXCC. However, Gildas, who is on a fishing boat, has been known to sometimes go
a shore and operate. He has operated as FT5XP in 2006, FT5XR in 2008, FT5XS in 2009 and FT5XT in
2010/2011/2016. Watch the QSNs carefully on the DXCluster spots. QSL via F4DXW.
