Preparing for DXØDX Spratly Expedition
I am now getting ready for my participation in the DXØDX Spratly expedition January 6-24 2011 where a team of more than 30 operators will be deployed to erect and operate 12 stations from Thitu Island (Pag-Asa in Filipino).
The planning for this Expedition has been underway for more than a year and team leader Chris Dimitrijevic VK3FY has gathered a truly international team with members possessing many different skills.
The DX0DX expedition will be operating from three different camps on Thitu Island, the CW Camp in the North, SSB Camp in the South and a dedicated 160 meter and RTTY Camp on the Eastern beach of the island.
A big effort i being made on Topband and a few of the operators will also remain on the island after the expedition to participate in the CQWW 160 contest Januari 28-30.
On January 3 I will board a flight with destination to Manila to take part in this fun adventure, hope to hear you in the pile-ups.
Full information about the Thitu Island expedition can be found on the official DX0DX website.
