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.
Elecraft will be providing us with a full set of K3
Light in weight but heavy on performance, the K3 was the
choice for this challenging polar DXpedition. We will also be
along a set Acom 1010 amplifiers, which will help overcome some
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
VP8ORK with brand new hardware for a complete set of verticals
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
We will also have with us the "gold-standard" in extreme
DXpedition antennas: The Battle Creek Special. This proven
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
85 foot Spiderbeam fiberglass masts supporting vertical wires tuned
80 and 160. Again, this allows simultaneous CW and SSB operation on
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
