  star The Northern California DX Foundation is pleased to announce a contribution of $ 6,000 to the VP6T Pitcairn Island DXpedition. The operation will take place from January 20 to February 4, 2012. Pitcairn Island is No. 41 on the DX Magazine's Most Wanted List for 2011.

Five veteran DXpeditioners anticipate more than 30,000 QSOs and plan to have three stations on the air around the clock on nine bands. A special effort will be made to work Europe and the U.S. East Coast. The group and the HK0NA DXpedition have coordinated operating frequencies to avoid mutual interference.

For the past 40 years the NCDXF has funded major DXpeditions to many Most Wanted countries. The credit for these large grants goes to the NCDXF contributors who make DX like this possible. Have you contributed yet? www.ncdxf.org

January 1, 2012

  star The Northern California DX Foundation is pleased to announce a contribution of $15,000 to the HK0NA Malpelo DXpedition which will take place from January 21 to February 5-6, 2012. Malpelo is #12 on the DX Magazine's Most Wanted List for 2011.

Team co-leader Bob Allphin, K4UEE, states that, "Malpelo is probably the most physically challenging DXpedition I have ever participated in.  An advance team of four (HK1MW, HK1N, HK1T & HK6F) left Christmas day with nearly 4 tons of gear to transport to the island.  They will establish two camps, one at the 300 foot level and another at near the top at the 800 foot level and set up antennas and stations which should be ready when the main team arrives January 21. Without major financial support from NCDXF, DXpeditions like this to challenging or rare locations would not be possible."

No one has ever operated from the top of the island before, hence the western North America and Asia/Oceana have a much higher need for Malpelo. See http://hk0na.com

For the past 40 years the NCDXF has funded major DXpeditions to many Most Wanted Entities. The credit for these large grants goes to the NCDXF contributors who make DX like this possible. Have you contributed yet? www.ncdxf.org

  star On December 24th, the Northern California DX Foundation announced a "Christmas gift" of $500 to help rebuild and re-equip the Radio Amateur Society of Thailand's HSØAC Club station that was destroyed by recent flooding.

By now, you may have heard about the severe floods in Thailand this past Fall, resulting in devastating damage everywhere -- including the Radio Amateur Society of Thailand (RAST) and their famous "HSØAC" club station, which were completely destroyed. This website shows it all in horrific detail: http://www.qsl.net/rast/

RAST is also part of the Asian Technical Institute. The HSØAC club station is located within the Institute. . Please help Thailand hams by donating any amount via their PayPal address: donate@rast.or.th
