Bob, KK6EK, expedition leader of TX5K says:
The TX5K team also feels very honored to follow the great K9W operation.
The 2013 Clipperton DXpedition faced quite a challenge, following only 5 years after the last (also great) activation by John N7CQQ and his TX5C team. The TX5K operation was successful (114k QSOs) due to the superb radio facilities assembled and shipped by the European team members, and the excellent campsite facilities, assembled and shipped by the U.S. team members. We are also very grateful for major support from W6OP, N7XG, N6BC, AD6E, and KY6R to enable the successful use of DXA, so you could get instant confirmation of your QSO. We are also grateful for the generous support from many organizations and thousands of DXers, in particular Zorro JH1AJT, who enabled us to do it on time and within budget. Finally, I give my personal congratulations and appreciation to all the TX5K team members.
Thanks to all who helped make it happenâ€¦
