Thank you for your interest in the Robert W. Denniston Memorial Station. Past ARRL & IARU President and DXpedition pioneer Bob Denniston, VP2VI/W0DX was a cherished friend and member of the Caribbean Contesting Consortium which honors his memory and perpetuates the use of his callsign through its operating events. After heading up the VP7NG "Gon-Waki" trip during the 1948 ARRL DX contest, Bob was credited with being "the father of the modern DX-pedition". Other firsts included Clipperton (FO8AJ in 1954) and Malpelo (HK0TU in 1969). His VP1JH ARRL DX-CW score was a world record. His efforts as IARU president (1966-74)helped build support for Amateur Radio internationally and for its' inclusion in what became known as the 1979 World Admininistrative Radio Conference which led to our allocations at 30, 17, and 12 meters and the retention of a portion of the 160-meter band!
