    Many thanks to Mediterraneo Dx Club for your nice contribution for the Malpelo Dxpedition 2012.

    On behalf of the DX Amateur Radio Club of Colombia, thanks for your contribution of $250.
    It is dedicated and generous DXers and Clubs like yours that make DXpeditions such HK∅NA possible.

    One of the goals of the Malpelo DXpedition is to provide at least one QSO to every DXer who needs this #12 ranked DXCC entity for a new one.

    Your contribution will help make this happen.
    DXers world-wide…thank you!

    We look forward to contacting you on the air!

    See you in the pile-ups!
    Again thanks,
    DX Amateur Radio Club (Colombia)

    I’m a 10m-lover and I hope to contact you on 28 MHz band. Propagation conditions are rising up, so it shouldn’t be difficult to have good chances between Italy and Malpelo.
    Good luck!

    Three members of the Malpelo 2012 team have just completed a seven day reconnaissance visit to Malpelo. To see a short written summary of their observations and view some very revealing pictures, visit here.

    This will be a very demanding DXpedition for several reasons. The terrain is particularly difficult, near vertical at times. And in order to have a clear radio view of Asia, the Pacific region and W6/W7; it will be necessary to locate operating site(s) and antennas at the top of the mountain. This further complicates the difficulties and physical risks to the team.

    Team members vary in age from 25 to 73. But under the leadership and constant urging of our team’s medical doctors, K9SG and W0GJ, we have all embarked on a physical training regime. We should all be ready for the challenges come early 2012.

    Three members of the team K4UEE, N4GRN and W6IZT will travel to Colombia on Nov 5-8 for a planning meeting with team leader, Jorge HK1R and other team members. The purpose of the meeting is to review all the checklists and responsibilities for each team member. With the information gained on the recent reconnaissance visit, decisions can be finalized concerning camp/operating sites, antenna types and placement, safety measures and other critical decisions necessary to the ultimate success for the DXpedition.

    One critical decision to be made concerns the duration of the operation. We have permission to stay on site for 17 days versus the 14 days now planned. We will be reviewing the DXpedition budget to determine if we can afford the extra $15,000 expense for 3 additional days.

    Contributions are gratefully accepted at our website.

    We plan periodic press releases with information of interest. Also, watch the website for breaking news.

    Jorge Prieto, HK1R DXpedition leader
