NCDXF Announces Major Support For The VP8 South Orkney Island DXpedition

April 25, 2019

The Northern California DX Foundation is pleased to announce a contribution of $30,000 to the Perseverance DX Group’s VP8O South Orkney DXpedition planned for February/March 2020.   South Orkney Island is currently #16 on the ClubLog Most Wanted List.

Since 2016, NCDXF-supported DXpeditions activated five of the ten most-needed entities.  NCDXF-funded DXpeditions in this time put well over 1 million QSOs into DXers’ logs! has details of the 2020 South Orkney Island DXpedition.

DXpeditions to rare entities like South Orkney Island that are so remote are becoming more expensive, a trend that we believe will continue.  

NCDXF's primary purpose is to help fund well-organized DXpeditions to desirable DXCC entities like South Orkney Island. During the last 47 years, NCDXF has granted nearly $1.2 million to hundreds of DXpeditions – helping to put an “all-time-new-one” (ATNO) in the log and make DX happen for thousands of DXers worldwide.  The credit for these large grants goes to the NCDXF contributors, individuals and clubs who support the DX community.  Without those contributions, DXpeditions to entities like Bouvet or other desirable locations would not be possible.

If you agree with the importance of NCDXF's work, and if you are not a current contributor, we hope you will become one today by clicking here.   Your contribution will continue to help make DX happen.  You can also support future DXpeditions by including the NCDXF Cycle 25 Fund in your estate plan.

We wish the Perseverance DX Group a safe and very successful trip to South Orkney Island next year.
