The Team, with the Sharp Family's permission, have decided to dedicate the IOTA DXPEDITIONS to Melville Isl OC-173 & Croker Isl OC-229 to Shirley ..
Shirley was very active on the 27Mhz CB bands and an avid SWL operator known not only to Australian CB'ers but the World , with over 80 DXCC Countries to her name using only the Legal Channels & 10w in Australia ..
We will remember you Shirley Sharp , as the Women with a Heart of Gold , who would help out when ever needed . Shirley was to accommodate the Team in Darwin for the 4 Team members
