VP8/O, SOUTH ORKNEY ISLANDS. The following press release was received on
June 23rd: "The Microlite Penguins DXpedition team is pleased to announce
the major equipment sponsors for our upcoming South Orkneys DXpedition.
  The world-famous Elecraft will be providing us with a full set of K3
transceivers. Light in weight but heavy on performance, the K3 was the
obvious choice for this challenging polar DXpedition. We will also be
taking along a set Acom 1010 amplifiers, which will help overcome some
of the low-band difficulties and help keep our signals above the noise.
  The main force behind our antenna field is DX Engineering, who will be
supplying VP8ORK with brand new hardware for a complete set of verticals
from 40m through 10m.
  Complementing the DX Engineering antenna field is SteppIR, who will
also be providing two of their rugged BigIR vertical antennas. This will
allow us maximum flexibility with propagation, and two stations active
within the same band whenever possible.
  We will also have with us the "gold-standard" in extreme location
DXpedition antennas: The Battle Creek Special. This proven low-band
performer will provide the backbone to the VP8ORK effort on 80 and 160,
ensuring you hear us. And so we can hear YOU, we'll also have one of DX
Engineering's 4-square receive antenna systems.
  And for additional firepower on the low bands, we will have 60 foot
and 85 foot Spiderbeam fiberglass masts supporting vertical wires tuned
for 80 and 160.  Again, this allows simultaneous CW and SSB operation on
80 and gives us redundancy on 160.
  Additional sponsors include Primus, who has graciously donated over
3000 feet of LMR-400 coax, and RigExpert Canada, who has come through
with a full set of interfaces for our K3s.
  With this fantastic range of equipment and some of the most experienced
operators ever assembled, VP8ORK is set to be the premier DX event of
  Major DXpeditions to polar regions come at a heavy price. Only with
your generous donations can we ensure this adventure is a success. Please
consider donating at:  
73 and see you on the bands! ..... The Microlite Penguins DXpedition Team"
