DX News by
newtower1Navassa K1N
The K1N team returned back home safely with 140,000 QSOs (30,000 unique calls) in the log, which were made
under difficult conditions from Navassa Island with only 14 OPs operating 7 stations, with only five amplifiers
and four beams. This "MVC" (Minimum Viable Configuration) was necessitated by the use of helicopters for
primary transport. Special thank goes to the almost 2000 DXers who supported the DXpedition financially.
Juan Fernandez 3G0ZC
6 More operators arrived on the island yesterday evening. Despite bad weather, antenna setup is close to being
finished. Currently 5 stations are now QRV, including 6m. They are waiting for the last 6 operators to have the
team complete. They are expected to arrive for the weekend depending on weather.
