    History

    The name “Perseverance DX Group” originated during a planning session for The Mellish Reef 2014 DX-pedition. Several of the founders were together on a DX-pedition to New Zealand’s Campbell Island, a Sub-Antarctic outpost 700 kilometers south of New Zealand.
    Our boat was anchored in Perseverance Harbor during the expedition. It seemed appropriate to use the name of a harbor that requires one’s perseverance to withstand the wind, rain and wildlife. The harbor was named in 1810 after the ship (the sealing brig Perseverance). Its captain was Fredrick Hasselborough, the Perseverance was owned by Robert Campbell of Sydney, Australia, thus the name Campbell Island.

    Mission statement

    The Perseverance DX Group (PDXG), founded in 2013, was established to support high frequency DX operations - on all bands / modes - to rare and semi rare DXCC entities, worldwide. By bringing together amateur radio operators from around the world we will pursue excellence in DX operating and encourage global cooperation in all aspects of DXing.

PDXG QSL Management Cloud Platform

Written by Gene Spinelli, K5GS on .

QSL Manager’s QSO Edit Page - Individually or in Batch (unconfirmed QSO information removed)With computers well entrenched in DXing and amateur radio in general the underappreciated QSL managers that work in the background are the recipients of thousands of e-mails (mostly all inquiring - sometimes complaining - about one or more missing QSOs), an untold number of snail mail pieces containing even more snail mail pieces, currency, IRCs, postage stamps and one or more QSL cards, even some with QSL cards for multiple DX stations or DX operators. This avalanche of paper is time consuming and labor intensive, sometimes requiring teams of volunteers to process. Add to this the hundreds of DX logs (in various formats), millions of DX contacts, donor lists, and consolidated DX club log submissions, all of which require accurate accounting and more importantly preservation. QSL managers use different methods to recover their operating costs which include items such as toner, labels, envelops, and sometimes pizza lunches for the volunteer teams. Some managers personally absorb the cost while others pass the cost to the DX-pedition.

PDXG Donates Lenovo Laptop to Bill Moore NC1L

on .

May 14, 2016: L-R Bill Moore NC1L, Les Kalmus W2LK (W1RM photo)As you may recall, after a life altering automobile accident in July, 2014 Bill Moore NC1L stepped down as the ARRL Awards Manager.

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.

TX3X Chesterfield Islands DX-pedition Financial Summary

Written by Gene Spinelli, K5GS on .

thumb accountingIn 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.
