Bob K4UEE and Gary KN4AQ (editor) are proud to announce they have completed this exciting DVD. This is Bob’s tenth DXpedition video.
It took THIRTEEN years to get permission to visit Navassa Island. During that time, Navassa climbed to the #1 Most Wanted DXCC Entity – tens of thousands of hams worldwide weren’t even licensed the last time Navassa Island was activated – in 1993.
The long road involved getting permission to visit from the US Fish and Wildlife Service because Navassa has been declared a National Wildlife Refuge. The KP1-5 Project worked tirelessly to get permission to visit and, finally, a DXpedition was approved for February 2015.
The DVD shows the logistical challenge of moving fifteen operators and tons of gear to this small uninhabited island in the Caribbean. It was hot work – and expensive – since the only practical way to get there was via helicopter.
This two-week effort paid off with 140,000 QSOs and many, many all-time new ones (ATNOs) for hams worldwide. And that’s a good thing because it will be at least ten years before Navassa will be on the air again!
This DVD belongs in your Ham Radio video collection, is great for club meetings, and for introducing newcomers to DXing.
K1N was the winner of “DXpedition of the Year” for 2014-15.
