VP8STI & VP8SGI – South Sandwich and South Georgia

The Mediterraneo DX Club is  sponsor of VP8STI – South Sandwich & VP8SGI – South Georgia.

Free internal QSL service available for all MDXC Members is good standing with the share in 2016


NEWS UPDATE @ 21:20Z – Nigel Jolly, Braveheart owner, declared an emergency and ordered the VP8STI team to cease all operations and return to the ship. A large ice flow that had broken away due to last night’s storm starts to block the entrance to the Bay where they were camped. There was strong potential for the ice flow to prevent Braveheart reaching them.

The Team is now safely aboard the Braveheart and they are moving away from Southern Thule Is. All equipment and personal gear is still on the island. They hope to return to camp site during next good weather window. Once they retrieve their equipment they will make a determination as to whether they can proceed to South Georgia to do VP8SGI as planned – VP8STI QRT !

PRESS RELEASE #1 – January 8, 2016. The last 18 months have seen considerable efforts and dialogue with various departmental offices in Bahrain, and we are now in a position to proudly announce that members of Bahrain Amateur Radio Group, led by Fawaz A92AA, will conduct a first ever activation of the Hawar Islands AS-202 – a new IOTA group which was added to the IOTA Directory in July 2014. All paperwork and permits are now in hand.

During the period April 28 to May 1, 2016, a dedicated team will put Hawar island on the air with the sole aim of giving this new IOTA to as many stations as possible. With up to 4 stations running simultaneously on CW, SSB and Digi your chance to work AS-202 is greatly enhanced.

Our website is now on line. Please visit www.a91hi.com for full details. We are also on Facebook and Twitter.

As with all unique projects, costs soon add up. To date the team have met all expenses including licensing costs, transportation fees, permits, accommodation for 4 nights stay/shelter in addition to general logistics costs. Read more »


Happy 2016

Dear Members,

2015 is almost over. This year has been very challenging for our club: engagement and hard work always bring good results.


Our flag has been flying in the most important expeditions of 2015. Our contributions were finalized on 30 expeditions enclosing the QSL SERVICE, including some very important ones as E3-3G- FT4-TX3 etc.

The club and its management never stop and in 2015 have already concluded negotiations with several teams organizing major expeditions. We will be attending VP8-KH5 with our QSL service. You can get more info about all our activities on the portal www.mdxc.org and its italian version www.mdxc.org/ita.

 About the contest run by the Club, the CQ Bande Basse continues to keep alive the participation of many OM marking an increasing interest each year with more and more sended logs. The Italian contest 28Mhz which, as we well know, is always linked to the propagation, slightly exceeded the participants of 2014; concomitance with Friedrichshafen’s fair did not help, but we have already arranged everything for next year and that the error will not be repeated.QSL-3D

This year we also have to record an appreciated trend. Thanks to the availability of Italian members, we have been showing in many fairs. This gave way to learn about our activities, but also to be able to meet many members and report on the state of the club itself, as well as getting feedback – positive and negative – that helped us for the 2016 offers. What we probed around Italy is the request to support a greater number of expeditions with the opportunity to get confirmations through the QSL service.

About the QSL SERVICE, we have to thank all members who offered their time for free to better organize deliveries. I am sure that this engagement makes us all proud, creating an atmosphere of brotherhood and friendship in all the provinces where are present thanks to our local and regional coordinators.
