F5OGL and the team:
Thank you for your efforts and the hard work done by the team, not excluding salutations for doing >50.000 contacts with 5 operators. This is all very well recognized and appreciated!
1.However, the DX-community does not only consist of believers, but also hams with no remorse to do the wrong things in a pile-up, disturbing others. I feel that every operator facing a No 4 Country Needed pile-up should know the expectations of the crowd calling and the means and measures to control the crowd. I missed this with FT5GA!
2.However, the DX-community would have been more lenient and excusing certain flaws in the operation, if it had been FULLY informed beforehand about the capabilities of the operation and its members.
It would have been so easy to announce:' Our OPs are quite new on the subject DX and learn while they do.'
More than a Million Hams would have understood and been more patient.
3.However, giving the DX-community more informations
before shut-downs or other changes would have helped a lot, too. There ar a magnitude of hams out there that have been in the Military and certainly understand the ways things are handled there. One announcement is not enough, when you are exited in the trial to work a No 4.

Your guys made >50,000 connections, very well, but not always at the right times or on the right bands according to the real propagation.And the propagation is not controlled from (Paris), but experienced by the team.

All in all said and written here, the effort is well accepted and the outcome is accordingly.
Maybe my thoughts as a 25 year DXer can help any similar DXpedition planning for Europa Island or others like Kerguelen.

And last, this is not critique from someone , who did not make it in the log. It is just my opinion based on the facts of listening more than 4 full days = more than 100 hours, to get in the log.

All the very best to the crew and the organizers and tnx again for all the effort put into this DXpedition

Glorieuses Team dxpedition:

Is a shame (honte) that a big dxpedition like Glorieuses are designed only for United States and Japan.- 'Only North America' was the constant that appear on the clusters.
Was the money (dollars) the only justification for the dxpedition?

We, the South Americans ham radio also exists and we have a big disappointed with your attitude. Enjoy your profits!

You completed your dx-expedition and for doing this I thank you. What of some of the critizm. Some of it is valid. Did each part of the world get an EQUAL oppurtunity to work you. No answer is needed as your stats will show what happened. Why did the top 100 stations in EU and NA work you 10+ times each. I can see 5 band and or a couple of modes, to do it for bragging rights is inapproppriate to say the least. In acheiving their spectacular record how many smaller stations got screwed out of a contact. Some of the pilots were making rude comments to the guys who used the wriong vfo--lighten up this a hobby.

FT5GA you published a schedule then ignored it. You avoided 20 and 40 meter phone,you favoured EU over the rest of us. Is this payback for a previous problem. I did not work you but thanks for doing the dxpedition. Dennis

Thank you for an all time new one on CW. It was a very difficult dx-ped. I am sure. I worked two SLIMS before I finally got you on 15M CW. Despite all the difficulties, thank you again for the QSO! Only 3 more until I am on the top

SLIMs are the scum of the earth...

With the low count or zero sun spots you made many good contacts.Things got out of hand at times, and that is to be expected with so many calling.

Tu you for the activation.. It was vy Difficult to make any qso with you.. You were close to noise level here all the time.. I was giving my best effort and managed to work you on 20/15mb ssb/cw.. Just a low tribander here.. no chance to hear you on 10mb with my Low tribander.. Wkd you on the bands which were my only chance.. glad you hrd me.. A new one wkd with vy modest setup.. I know it was not easy for outside of EU stations neither.. Asia & Pacific.. I feel sorry for you.. here in N.Europe it was vy difficult too..Big guns wkd this one easily with high antennas and 1kw++ Glad if you made it..! De Oh1JO Jari
