VK0EK – March 6 – April 20, 2016

The LOG is N1MM+ which DXA reads and sends back to a replica in the US. Therefore – DXA is the LOG. If you see your QSO in DXA, then you are in the log and should not have to worry about making a second “insurance QSO” for that band slot. Please bookmark this link and use it while you are making QSO’s – you will find that its a valuable resource:


For Early Donors or anyone who checks out using our order page (accessed from DXA), your LOTW and Clublog data will be uploaded within hours of making the QSO (if you are an early donor), or within hours if you check out of the store.

Everyone will eventually get LOTW and Clublog credit, so no purchase is required. We just wanted to give a special “express” thank you to our financial supporters.

Please see both the DXA and QSL pages for more details.

        Thanks Tino – I have added you to the list. You should see LOTW soon. 73 – Rich

  2. We are delighted and looking forward to work a DXpedition so “close” to South Africa.
    Our keen DXers are ready to fill your log and even the QRP stations are looking forward as they do not have to compete with the “DX Wall”

    Have a fantastic time on the Island and looking forward to working all you nice gentleman. Your efforts are well noted ~ Tnx

      Good luck in the pileups and thanks to all ZS hams for making the VK0EK Team feel so welcomed in South Africa!

    A very impressive, well organized, team of known to be “Competent” people on track to tackling a very difficult task in hopefully magnificent fashion! That being said we all know “Excrement Happens”… Here’s to your group’s ability to adapt on the fly and “Get Er Done!” If I was a few pounds lighter I would be very jealous, but as it is have done all I can on my end to put VK0EX in the log!

    I would like to wish you all the best of luck and safe travels! Remember… this is about “Having Fun!” so take the time to pause along the way and appreciate the thing your doing, how wonderful and rare these things are in our lives, and ENJOY IT!

    PS: Take pictures…, LOTS OF PICTURES!

    Best of luck and weather for one of the most planned Expeditions ever. Long haul and short window but am hoping for a Top Band QSO.
    73 and warm wishes

  10. Larry says:

    Hope to work you on either 30 or 17. Only dipole antennas so it will be tough. Look forward to hearing your sigs. Stay warm. 73

    Does the QSO Search function on DXA search the whole log, or just those QSOs displayed on the page at the time?

    When I worked VK0EK on 20m, the search function replied with the message that I was in the log, and highlighted my call in the list of worked stations (on the right-hand side of the page). Subsequent searches on my call result in a message “I’m sorry but you are not in the log yet …”.

    Is there a log search which checks the whole log?

    1. ky6r says:

      Please make sure to click the little magnifying glass when you search.

    Awesome technology and DXpedition organization. Considering this operation is from one of most remote places on Earth, the DXA technology is really a fantastic DXpedition achievement and improvement. On 3/25 I worked VK0EK but because of an interfering DX cop did not notice that the VK0EK op (that wasn’t you was it Dave?!!) missed the first “dit” from the L in my call, W2JLK, transforming MY qso into a very easy, free contact for W2JDK!! I wouldn’t have caught this – maybe completely missed an ATNO – if it wasn’t for DXA technology!! But all’s well – I did get a verified Q the next night and confirmation in LotW within 5 minutes!! Really amazing! Tnx to all the team for an VY FB DXpedition. (Regards to Bob and Dave from the Morristown HS kids as well) 73, Jim

  15. Felice says:

    Great operators. I worked you in 5 bands in 2days with the QRM’ers on frequency, but your signal was very stable. Fantastic DXA technology for this DX-Expedition. My compliments for the organization in every little particulares.
    73, Felice

  16. Sergey says:

    Hi the Team,
    Today,28 March,I’ve had a qso with the op.Rudi on 24.950 ssb at 12:02 utc and I have received 59 very clear,confirming my call,IZ5YHD,100%.
    But,later on,cheking the log,I’ve been so disappointed to notice that I was not logged.
    So,please,would you be so kind to chek it too and correct the eventual mistake?Many tnx for your kind attention.
    73 de IZ5YHD Franco

  19. Al - N1API says:

    DXA is a great tool for following the operation! Probably the best one yet! Perhaps expand it to show your transmit frequency for each mode. Is it something you can offer to the DX community for others DXpeditions? It cuts WAY down on the ‘Where are they” questions on the cluster.

  20. Ishi, JA7AUM says:

    Thanks for the 80m CW QSO this morning. You were just making CQ and It was a rare chance with my 200W small pistol.
    It was also a small pistol donation, but it was worthwhile for your efforts. Thanks. ishi, JA7AUM
