“Tom Callas, KC0W, is on a multi year DXpedition to many exotic DX spots–until today. He reports his entire DXpedition supplies , rigs, personal possessions–all of it–have been stolen on 28 Sept in Kiribati. (SEE TOM’S QRZed WEB PAGE).
Obviously distraught by these events, Tom is strongly considering cancelling the rest of his Dxpedition itinary.
Several folks are reaching out to Tom and seeing what he needs to continue–or return stateside. At this time, Tom has not assessed his options, but those who are in touch by his (private) email address will provide further info and requests as appropriate.
Tom will not be stuck in the Pacific. His friends and fellow DXers won’t let him down.
Well known world traveller, Tom Callas KC0W, had been travelling the South Pacific for a few months. Radio activity had taken place from KH8, 5W, T2, YJ and T30.
Sadly, Tom went QRT suddenly, and writes:
“Everything I own was stolen on 28 September from here in Kiribati (T30). They took all my radios, computers, amplifiers, antennas, coax, EVERYTHING. They even took my clothing & shoes. I have literally NOTHING left.”
Since this sad tale surfaced, we’ve read many comments of support for Tom and how it would be great if some kind of support was offered.
Well, now is your chance..
While Tom may never have his personal gear returned or found, a small donation to help him get back on air, or to enable him to purchase personal necessities would certainly help the predicament he now finds himself in.
DX-World.net is running this Crowdfunding initiuitive and kindly requests you consider a generous donation to Tom, KC0W. All monies raised will go directly to him.
Thanks for your kindness,
Col MM0NDX @ DX-World.net
