NCDXF announces grant to VP6T Pitcairn Island DXpedition
January 16, 2012
The Northern California DX Foundation is pleased to announce a contribution of $ 6,000 to the VP6T Pitcairn Island DXpedition. The operation will take place from January 20 to February 4, 2012. Pitcairn Island is No. 41 on the DX Magazine's Most Wanted List for 2011.
Five veteran DXpeditioners anticipate more than 30,000 QSOs and plan to have three stations on the air around the clock on nine bands. A special effort will be made to work Europe and the U.S. East Coast. The group and the HK0NA DXpedition have coordinated operating frequencies to avoid mutual interference.
For the past 40 years the NCDXF has funded major DXpeditions to many Most Wanted countries. The credit for these large grants goes to the NCDXF contributors who make DX like this possible. Have you contributed yet? www.ncdxf.org
