Juan de Nova Island
NCDXF announces major grant to FT4/J Juan de Nova Island DXpedition
June 12, 2015
The Northern California DX Foundation is pleased to announce a contribution of $25,000 to the FT4/J Juan de Nova Island DXpedition planned for March 2016. Juan de Nova will be #8 or #9 on the DX Magazine’s Most Wanted List in early 2016. It will be #5 on ClubLog’s Most Wanted List.
Without major financial support from NCDXF, DXpeditions like this to challenging or rare locations would not be possible.
http://www.juandenovadx.com/en/ has more details. Juan de Nova is a very small and very environmentally fragile area. There are strict limitations to the number of visitors and the time allowable on the island. The team’s antenna plans, pilot feedback plans and enthusiasm should make this entity available to many DXers.
For the past 42 years the NCDXF has funded major DXpeditions to many Most Wanted Entities.
The credit for these large grants goes to the NCDXF contributors, individuals and clubs, who make DX like this possible. Have you contributed yet?
