The leaders of this expedition have permitted sharing of their Handbook. Impressive stuff.

It Really takes an awful lot to impress me. Roll Eyes

I AM VERY VERY IMPRESSED!

A lot of time and thought and experience from other expeditions, in no particular order, obviously went into that handbook.

Well DONE!  I honestly dont see anything missed/omitted that might improve it.

Wow....

I could only think that if Danny Weil had half the equipment, tents, water, etc., when he made his expedition to CI,he probably would have felt he was staying at Clipperton Resort!

They literally are setting up a small city on that island. I couldn't believe all the stuff that we packed in the SF Bay Area warehouse in January - and that was just the US side of the equation. A container was also shipped from Germany - where the team had assembled the radio gear in December. Its pretty amazing, and exciting!

Stay tuned - and make sure you visit DX World and the TX5K Web Site and Blog often. A variety of interesting background stories will be posted along the way.

To say these guys are prepared is an understatement.

Logistics for this seems to be very well thought out and documented.

It's a chip shot from the US. I suspect we'll get an earful!

If they operate just 10% as well as they organize, this may be one of the best DXpeditions ever.  I think Clipperton may even drop out of the top 100 after these hams are on the island.  Plus it will be a lot cleaner and better for their visit.  What a great example for others to follow.

I was looking at the operating frequency list for the DX'pedition and noticed that the 40M operating frequency is 7.185 mHz. Does anyone besides me remember what mess that was with the OMISS net on a previous DX'pedition? I realize they don't own the frequency but they sure think they do.

Make sure you let your TX5K Pilot know - they will get that message to the team.

According to Clublog, its still in the top 50, which amazes me after the TX5C expedition.  I need a couple CW bandfills. (80, 40 and 30)
