C82DX

Press Release #2

Planning and preparations are continuing for our October 2013 Mozambique DXpedition.   Our license has been issued and is in hand with the call C82DX.  We are happy to announce this will be the first use of the C82 prefix.  We will be active starting 15 October  for eight days with operations ongoing through October 22nd.

We are also pleased to announce Ray Novak, N9JA has joined our team.

ZS6P and ZS6RI will travel to our operating site the first week of June for scouting, planning and preparation purposes.   Our location in Xai Xai is located directly on the ocean in the southern part of Mozambique.

Low Band operations remain the primary objective and we have secured both Titanex and Battle Creek Special verticals.  We have also obtained the sponsorship of Array Solutions with one of their new shared apex loop array RX systems. They join ICOM (our main equipment supplier with IC7600s) and SteppIR (CrankIRs) as our major donors to our DXpedition.

During the day we will operate all HF bands including 6 meters.

Our website is now live, www.c82dx.com , where you can learn more about our plans.

Tom, N4XP and Don, N1DG
DXpedition Co-leaders
