EUDXF support for ZK3 Tokelau DXpedition

The EUDXF board decided to support the ZK3A DXpedition to Tokelau October 1 – 11, 2019.

Tokelau Island is currently ranked by Club Log #26 most wanted in Europe.

This is a 10 day DXpedition which will have an advanced set up team arriving early which should allow ZK3A to be on the air ten full days. They will be active on 160 – 6 Meters CW, SSB, RTTY, FT8, and EME. The plan includes a four square on 160M from a 40M high tower.


EUDXF Supported South Orkney Islands DXpedition Press Release

For Immediate Release
Press Release #4
June 27, 2019

South Orkney Islands DXpedition

Project planning continues on schedule.

Corporate Sponsors
A key component of any serious DXpedition is the equipment. Joining our
corporate sponsor team are:

We are pleased to announce that WiMo Antenna und Elektronik Gmb, Herxheim,
Germany will sponsor the HF Yagi antennas by providing a complement of
antennas from their EAntenna product line.

Returning as a sponsor is Spiderbeam GmbH, Spremberg, Germany. As with our
previous DXpedition projects, Spiderbeam will provide their line of
high-quality fiberglass and aluminum telescoping masts. We are happy to
again welcome Spiderbeam to another PDXG project.

Tent Weekend
Scheduled for July 12 – 15, 2019 in Placerville, California is our tent
assembly project. Over 2,300 pounds (1,050kg) of WeatherPort extreme weather
tents and supporting equipment was shipped to California from Illinois and
Georgia. We appreciate the assistance from: Don N1DG, Craig K9CT, Bob K4UEE
and Rick N4HU in making these tents available to our project, and Mark
KJ6EUO for his assistance in receiving and storing the shipment in

We will unpack, inspect, make any necessary repairs and repack the tents. To
minimize island setup time, we will construct and “kit” the tent bases /
flooring in California.

Band / Mode Addition:
We added 80m SSB to the operating plan.

Our fundraising campaign continues. The next payment to Braveheart is due in
July and our shipping budget of $25,000(USD) is tracking close to plan. As
of this writing, 30 clubs / Foundations and 236 individuals have shown their
support to the project.

We have a long way to go in order to reach the goal of 50% team member
funding of the estimated project cost of $325,000(USD). If you need South
Orkney for an ATNO, or plan to work us, we would appreciate your help,
expenses must be paid before we sail.

Many of the current individual donors have supported our previous
DXpeditions whether they needed the entity or not. We appreciate the
confidence they’ve shown in our team, and invite others to sign on.

Ham Radio Events:
We enjoyed meeting many DXers at Ham Com Dallas, Friedrichshafen, Germany
and the Arizona ARRL State Convention, Prescott.

Please look for us at the Pacific Northwest DX Convention, Everett,
Washington in August.
