NCDXF Announces Major Grant To VKØEK Heard Island DXpedition
April 2, 2015
The Northern California DX Foundation is pleased to announce a grant of $50,000 to the VK0EK Heard Island DXpedition planned for November 2015. Heard Island has moved up to the #5 position on the ClubLog Most Wanted List, after the recent Navassa operation.
Without major financial support from NCDXF, DXpeditions like this to challenging or rare locations would not be possible.
Within the last year, NCDXF has given $175,000 in grants to operations in Iran, Andaman, Navassa, Eritrea, South Sandwich, South Georgia, Chesterfield, Heard and to a yet unannounced DXpedition, all of which are in or near the Top Ten Most Wanted.
We have been doing this for the past 42 years, making rare DX happen and bringing fun to DXers everywhere. The credit for these large grants goes to the NCDXF contributors, individuals and clubs, who believe in supporting NCDXF.
In the next few weeks and months, please stop by the NCDXF booths at Visalia, Dayton, and other major DX meetings. Our board members are looking forward to meeting you and thanking you for your support!
