Malpelo Island, off the coast of Colombia in the Pacific, ranked #12 on the DXCC "most-wanted" list -- but no longer! An international team of twenty hams from six nations made an astonishing 195,292 QSOs in fifteen days of operation. This set a new world record for "tent and generator"-type DXpeditions. And we were rewarded by being selected as DXpedition of Year for 2011-2012.
This video captures the planning and organization phases, the non-stop pileups, humor and local animal life -- as well as incredible footage of team members climbing the mountain. In all my experience, this was the most physically difficult DXpedition of all.
