The Northern California DX Foundation is pleased to announce it will be a major contributor to the KH1 Baker Island DXpedition planned for June 2018. Baker/Howland is #4 on the Club Log Most Wanted List now, but will be #3 after the upcoming Bouvet DXpedition.
In 2016, NCDXF-supported DXpeditions activated five of the ten most-needed entities. These DXpeditions put nearly 500,000 QSOs into DXers’ logs! That year we spent $156,000 to fund these and other DXpeditions. It is possible that the Bouvet and Baker DXpeditions could add another 200,000 QSOs to that number!
www.baker2018.net has details of the KH1 Baker DXpedition.
DXpeditions to rare entities like Baker-Howland that are so remote are becoming more expensive, a trend that we believe will continue.
NCDXF’s primary purpose is to help fund well-organized DXpeditions to rare, difficult and expensive entities, like Baker Island. During the last 45 years, NCDXF has granted over $1.1 million to hundreds of DXpeditions – helping to put an “all-time-new-one” (ATNO) in the log and make DX happen for thousands of DXers worldwide. The credit for these large grants goes to the NCDXF contributors, individuals and clubs who support the DX community. Without those contributions, DXpeditions to entities like Bouvet or other rare locations would not be possible.
If you agree with the importance of NCDXF’s work, and if you are not a current contributor, we hope you will become one today by clicking here. Your contribution will continue to help make DX happen. You can also support future DXpeditions by including the NCDXF Cycle 25 Fund in your estate plan.
We wish the KH1B team a safe and very successful trip to Baker Island next year.
