NCDXF Announces Grant to Tromelin Island DXpedition
The Northern California DX Foundation (NCDXF) has announced a $25,000 grant to the FT5/T Tromelin Island DXpedition planned for October 3-November 10, 2014. Tromelin is number10 on The DX Magazine’s latest Most Wanted List.
“The team’s antenna plans, pilot feedback plans, and enthusiasm should make this entity available to many DXers,” NCDXF President Glenn Johnson, W0GJ, said in announcing the grant. “For the past 42 years the NCDXF has funded major DXpeditions to many most-wanted entities. The credit for these large grants goes to the NCDXF contributors, individuals and clubs, who make DX like this possible.”
Tromelin is a small, extremely environmentally fragile area, and strict limitations are in place regarding the number of visitors and time allowed on the island. Additional details are on the DXpedition website.
