Recently we learned that Bill was in need of a laptop computer. His current Windows laptop is quite old and very much out of date. He is using an iPhone and iPad but a Windows 10 laptop will be of great help in his recovery. Bill cannot use his fingers except in a very limited way and at that he has no strength. We hope this current technology laptop will be the foundation for development of an interface that allows Bill to use the Remote Ham Radio site with push buttons rather than mouse actions.
This particular laptop was used on the TX3X Chesterfield Island DX-pedition. The machine was refurbished by PDXG, loaded with Windows 10 and presented to Bill by Les Kalmus W2LK.
PDXG is extremely happy to have been able to help Bill on his long road to recovery.
In the spirit of DX-pedition financial transparency the Perseverance DX Group leadership team is releasing this financial summary of the TX3X DX-pedition to donor clubs and foundations.
The project’s actual cost was less than 2% above the initial estimate.
A stronger US Dollar helped offset the effects of currency exchange and close budget management was a contributing factor.
The Perseverance DX Group is pleased to announce their intention to conduct a DX-pedition to Central Kirabati (Kanton Island) T31, currently Clublog number 22 most wanted. Initial planning has begun for a DX-pedition later in 2017.
Subject to licensing and landing formalities, it is expected a team of up to 11 operators will be on the island for up to 12 days. Initial discussions with a boat owner / skipper are scheduled to begin soon.
Team members committed, or considering their participation, include: Pista HA5AO, Les W2LK, Mike WA6O, Steve W1SRD, Arnie N6HC, Glenn KE4KY and Gene K5GS. Additional team members will be added throughout the planning phase.
Our website is under construction. Watch the usual DX sources for information. We will announce additional details as they develop.
