We proudly announce a DXpedition to Tarawa Island, Western Kiribati, from Oct 16 to 25, 2012, when two call signs will be used: T30PY for use from 10 to 160m and T30SIX on 6m. It is expected to have 3 stations running simultaneously on HF and one on six meters. The following modes will be used: SSB, CW and RTTY. EME on six meters may be possible, but not yet confirmed.
The team, at this time, is formed by the following Brazilian ham ops: PT2OP – Orlando, PY2PT – Rick, PY2XB – Fred, PY2WAS – Alex, PY4BZ – Fernando, PY7XC – Jim, PY7ZY – Ciro, PY3MM – Miguel and PY1KN – Marcelo.
The DXpedition website will be launched in a couple of days, supported by the Mediterraneo DX Club. Considering the high cost of logistics, donations are welcome to help the team to support all related costs. There will be a donation button in the site, for which the donor may click and use Paypal to accomplish it.
