This is a traditional type
DX-pedition in the way we intend to operate. However the target
is to operate from two DXCC entities, with maximum impact from
both sites. The Primary target is T31, Kanton, a place that is
very high on the "most wanted" lists around the world
and has been the subject of DX-pedition speculation for a long
time. The Secondary target is ZK3 Tokelau. A group of small,
often bypassed islands who as yet have never been the subject of
a large scale, multi operator DX-pedition. Despite not being very
high on the wanted lists in some areas, is none the less very
much sought after in areas such as Europe.
The itinerary is as follows:
T31T 23 September - 3 October 1999
ZK3DX 7 October - 12 October 1999
We intend to have three stations
operational manned by the 6 operators, 24 hours/day. There will
be beams for the HF bands, including the WARC bands and verticals
for the low bands. The operation will feature one SSB site, one
CW site and one WARC/Lowband/RTTY site.
The vessel transporting the team
has already been secured and the total travel time for the team
is 6 weeks.
The rough budget for this
DX-pedition is about $30.000 US. The DX-pedition is looking for
additional funds from Clubs and Foundations.
Each participant has contributed
$1500 US. This includes everything from the day we depart
American Samoa until the day we return in late October. Operators
are responsible for their own expenses such as air tickets, hotel
bills, and food etc. before and after the expedition.
