My name is Craig and I have a problem – I’m addicted to the drug of IOTA DXpeditioning – I’m ashamed to admit I’m an IOTA-AHOLIC

IOTA activating is a seductive drug causing an addictive illness with no cure.

This drug costs a lot of money, can be very difficult to acquire and can be dangerous or even life threatening if not done properly. This addiction has disrupted my work and I’ve put this drug ahead of my family at times. My family tried to get me off this drug – they tried to make me go to rehab but I said No, No No.

This addiction has certainly hurt my hobby of DXing because I could have built an impressive station with big antennas but instead this money was put to paying for this drug instead. There have also been times where I’ve missed some DXCC and many IOTA activations because I’ve been away from home high and strung out on this drug.  

Well……….. it’s relief to get that off my chest. I like to think of myself now as a functioning IOTA-AHOLIC who can appear as a regular member of society and still enjoy my drug. It really has been a great high bringing you new IOTA’s and I look forward to doing it again.


The rest of this website page is just me showing some awards because I’m clearly an insecure narcissist who loves to bask in my own self-glory. So please visit other sections of the website for DXpedition stories etc. Now excuse me while I continue my pointless self-gratification to show how important I think I am even though no-one else really cares ………..
