Conway Reef, 3D2ØCR, October 1st to 10th

Tim, KC8UHE, sent a link to the web page for the upcoming 3D2ØCR DX'pedition to Conway Reef. Click HERE for the DX'pedition web page. From October 1 to 10 a team of 8 operators will activate this rare entity. Most recently it was ranked as the 19th most needed entity. Conway Reef is just 800 feet long by 500 feet wide and located some 280 miles southwest of the Fiji Islands in the South Pacific.

The team expects to operate three stations simultaneously 24/7. They will have three Elecraft K-3's and two K-2's plus a large selection of various antennas. In the first days of the operation one station will be dedicated to RTTY. They plan operations on all bands from 160-M through 6-M.

Donations are being requested on the web site. Click on the "How you can help" link on the web site. The first 200 individual contributors will receive a hand written QSL mailed from 3D2 or FK immediately after the DX'pedition.
