Ham Radio 360: WA7NB DX-pedition…Planning, Operations, Fun!

It’s Fo Time!

A DX-pedition is an expedition to what is considered an exotic place by amateur radio operators, perhaps because of its remoteness, access restrictions or simply because there are very few radio amateurs active from that place. This could be an island, a country, or even a particular spot on a geographical grid. DX is a telegraphic shorthand for “distance” or “distant”. ….linked from Wikipedia

In the latest installment of the Fo Time Podcast, we’re joined by Art Blank, WA7NB from AZ.  Art has participated in DX-peditions since 1995.

We discuss Planning and Funding a DX-pedition, along with Logistics and Operations.  Art was most recently involved with the Juan Fernandex Isl. DX-pedition 2013

 

If you’ve considered trying this end of the Ham Radio hobby, this Episode is for you!
