We would like to express our gratitude to the Syrian Telecommunication Establishment for their hospitality in Arwad, SSTARS The national association, itís president YK1AO and all members for their valuable assistance, the Governor of Tartous, the Mayor of Arwad and all individual people from the Syrian Arab Republic who helped us throughout the trip and operation. Without their help this DX-Pedition would never been possible!


We are sorry for those who we didnít work. Propagation and weather was not very cooperative but thatís the way it is on DX-Peditions!
