NCDXF announces major grant to FT5/T Tromelin Island DXpedition

January 19, 2014

The Northern California DX Foundation is pleased to announce a grant of $25,000 to the FT5/T Tromelin Island DXpedition planned for November 2014.   Tromelin is #10 on the DX Magazine's Most Wanted List for 2014.    It is #3 Most Wanted on the U.S. West Coast.

Without major financial support from NCDXF, DXpeditions like this to challenging or rare locations would not be possible.   has more details.    Tromelin is a very small and very environmentally fragile area.   There are strict limitations to the number of visitors and the time allowable on the island.  The team’s antenna plans, pilot feedback plans and enthusiasm should make this entity available to many DXers.

For the past 42 years the NCDXF has funded major DXpeditions to many Most Wanted Entities.

The credit for these large grants goes to the NCDXF contributors, individuals and clubs, who make DX like this possible.   Have you contributed yet?
