Press release #3

by / Friday, 20 October 2017 / Published in news

Our last communication goes back to several months but we didn’t stay inactive ! All tasks are going as scheduled.

The logistical operations are going on and will soon be finalized. Transport to St Brandon has been secured by a 50% deposit. It will be a 24h journey by boat between 3B8 and 3B7.

Once on the islet, we’ll use the small fishermen’s building as radio shack rather than tents. For sure it will be much more confortable  especially with hightemperatures. We are working to get a reliable 24/24 electricity supply by generators. We already started to test, and pack all our equipment in the crates previously used for Tromelin and Juan de Nova.

Expert Electronics LLC provided us some of their famous SunSDR2 PRO transceivers. We already have tested this setup with success on Juan de Nova. Now, these SDR TRX  will play a major role in our expedition. Thanks also to our regular corporate sponsors Dx Engineering, Messi & Paolini, Spiderbeam for their continuous support. We will give you more details about our setups soon.

We already made important expenses and time has come to request assistance from the DX community. Last week, we have contacted many clubs and associations who already supported us in the past. We are delighted to receive already positive answers !

As usual, we are extremely careful with each expenditure, but such project remains expensive. The team will provide more than 50% of the budget, but we need your assistance to balance it.
