DX World – DXpedition of the Year 2011

We report this interesting survey proposed to all of us from the site dxworld:

With 39 noteworthy calls listed – proving there were so many excellent expeditions last year – it was best considered to open up the poll with each Dxer having five votes – primarily to add to the fun of choosing your favourite(s) – whilst acknowledging an outright champion. Read more »


HK0NA updates #7

IMPORTANT INFORMATION – PLEASE READ
MOST MISSING LOGS FOUND!
Be advised that Op A logs from the top of the mountain arrive late and some QSO’s therefore may not be in the current online log until the next upload. Overall, logs are uploaded about once a day. If you notice that your QSO is not showing up before the “last” QSO in the database date/time posted here, wait for the next upload. If still not there, you may want to work them again.
We do realize that there are some log gaps and the team is doing everything they can to correct the situation. The gaps seem to be related to a software issue with their logging program. These gaps should not reoccur since the log collection process has been changed. At this time we cannot guarantee that we can recover the missing log data. We hope that this is not the case. But we may not know for sure until after the DXpedition is over. Read more »


9L0W: the story of a beautiful adventure

Here is the story that 9L0W’s Team offers to all MDXC Members. Our Club supported the DXpedition in Sierra Leone providing the official website, including added value internet visibility, online log-check and propagation tables services (courtesy of IK8LOV & DX-World).

We thank you so much all Team Members and we hope that MDXC support has been rise to the occasion.

Let’s read the story, directly from the pen of Karl DK2WV.

Sierra Leone, former British colony and protectorate (there was a bit of each), sits on the West African Atlantic coast between Guinea in the north and east, and Liberia in the south are neighbors. Mangrove swamps lie along the coast, with wooded hills and a plateau in the interior. The eastern region is mountainous. Read more »
