Special Friedrichshafen Press Release June 22, 2009
With a ranking of number 13 in Europe on the DX Magazines most wanted list, and number 10 in Germany, the K4M team knows any successful operation needs to focus on that area of the world. With that in mind our plans involve a special focus on Europe while we are QRV 9 – 19 October 2009.
Our operating site has a clear shot to Europe from the beach on the North Side of the Island:
Our site will have updated propagation forecasts for Europe and our ops will have printouts of these forecasts at the operating position to be mindful of those openings on this difficult path.
We have a pair of top notch European operators in Franz, DJ9ZB and Carlos, EA1IR. Off site support includes Chris, DL6KAC European propagation, Vrata, OK1KT European logistics, Markus, DL9RCF European Fund Raising, Col, MM0NDX European PR, and Roberto, IZ2KTZ creator of our logo.
European sponsors include the German DX Foundation, European DX Foundation, Chiltern DX Club, Danish DX Group, RSGB, LA DX Group, GMDX Group, Passau DX Club, and the Italian DX Group. And of course our operation received major funding from the Northern California DX Foundation, COLVIN Award and INDEXA, known worldwide sponsors of important DXPeditions. If your European DX Club has not contributed yet, please remind them of the great European need for Midway Island.
Contributions can be forwarded several ways, via the www.midway2009.com web site using Pay Pal, credit card or U.S. Mail. All contributions are noted on the web site and depending on the level of support will be noted on the DXpedition QSL.
