FT5ZM – Amsterdam Island DXpedition
Press Release – October 21, 2013

A sea container filled with our equipment --- bandpass filters, camp supplies, and other miscellaneous equipment -- is now on its way to New Zealand. There it will be loaded aboard our ship, the MV Braveheart. The Braveheart crew and our VK6 friends have our shopping lists for other needed materials and are procuring these items for us. These materials will all come together in January when the Braveheart and the FT5ZM team arrive in Fremantle, Australia.

Our network and logging team are in the last round of testing our system for the seamless uploading of our logs. Currently we can export 400 QSO’s each hour from each of 10 PC’s in approximately 500 msec. The log collection will be automatic, so there is no interruption of operator time. A zipped log file with 100,000 QSO’s will be just over 600 Kb in size, saving time and money on satellite uploads. The process has been tested end to end, including uploading to ClubLog.

We are in the phase of the DXpedition where large expenses are coming at us rapidly. We’ve completed one down payment on our ship, we’ve had to purchase some equipment and shipping supplies, shipping and customs fees have been paid, our anchorage and per diem costs at Amsterdam Island are coming due, we will be seeing berthing and ship supply charges from Fremantle soon, and we have another ship payment due on December 1.

We are staying within our budgeted expenses, but contributions have been somewhat less than we had hoped. It now appears almost certain that the team members will have to increase their personal contribution from $10,000 per person to $12,500 per person as well as pay their own way to and from Fremantle, Australia. If you’ve contributed to the DXpedition, we thank you. If you’ve yet to help us, or if you can send some additional help our way, we can certainly use any financial support that you can give us.

Please continue to check our progress, our news updates, and photos on our website: If, while you are there, you’d hit the "Donate” tab, we’d really, really appreciate it.

Ralph – K0IR
