(BUMS) will mount a DXpedition to the island of Montserrat (NA-103) from
January 29th to Feburary 6th, 2007. It seems DXpeditions have now moved
from Microlite to Ultralite. DXpedition team members will pack light for
this DXpedition taking only lightweight transceivers and portable antennas.
The maximum equipment weight taken to the island will be 100 pounds per
person. With this lightweight equipment, the team plans many on island
portable operations in the hills, on the beach, and from the volcano
observatory on the southern part of the island. The team members mentioned
a Budd/W3FF, Chris/W6HFP, Dan/WZ1P, Paul/KB9AVO, Mike/KC4VG and
Scott/NE1RD. All VP2M callsigns for the team members, QSL information,
operating frequencies, and operating schedules will be released prior to
the team's departure in January 2007. Check their Web site for more
information and updates at:
Also, you can follow along with the planning, preparation, execution, and
follow through on this DXpedition through NE1RD's blog, "The 100 Pound
DXpedition", at:

pedition to Libya, informs OPDX that there is an appeal for funds/hardware
and equipment for setting up a club station in Tripoli. In addition to
funds, the team needs transceiver(s), microphone, headphones (or headset),
morse key, GP-vertical, coax cables and antenna wire. An international
team will activate Libya between November 15-29th. The callsign will be
5A7A. Activity will be on all bands with CW and SSB, and for the first
time ever, digital modes on RTTY, SSTV and PSK plus another first will

will delete any surveys that are improperly marked for these two items.
