JULY 9, 2019 — Planning is on schedule for the ZK3A DXpedition to Tokelau Island IOTA OC-048.

The DXpedition runs from October 1st – 11th 2019. Tokelau Island ranks #40 most wanted in the world, and #26 most wanted in Europe according to Club Log.

We are excited to have an advanced set-up team who will build a 160M four square from an existing 40M high tower. Fundraising continues as we are currently seeking donations from DX Clubs and Foundations. More donor logos and names are being added to our website. Individual DXer support is also very important. $25 or more will receive free OQRS and LoTW upload upon DXpedition completion. All donations are welcome and we appreciate the support we are receiving from the DX community.

Thank You, Team ZK3A
