A message from the Intrepid DX Group VP8 South Sandwich and South Georgia Team

Posted: February 9, 2015 in Uncategorized


Dear friends of the DX Community,

The Intrepid-DX Group announced our plans to activate South Sandwich and South Georgia in mid-December.

With the activation of Navassa, these Islands become the #3 and #8 most wanted entities world-wide.

The activation of these two rare islands will be very expensive. The 14 team members are contributing $210,000 towards the $425,000 total cost of the DXpedition.

The team has a critical decision to make. We have a non-refundable deposit of $54,000 due to pay for our vessel charter.

We fully intend to go forward with our plans however we need indications from the global DX Community that you support our plans.

While we are pleased with the support of some individuals and a few clubs so far, we are now asking those of you who have not yet done so to please consider donating to our fund, or pledge a donation. We must feel confident that we can successfully raise enough funds for this exciting endeavor before we can commit to the non-refundable charter deposit.

You can see how to make a donation here: http://www.intrepid-dx.com/vp8/sponsors.php

If you cannot donate at this time, but wish to make a pledge, please let us know: intrepiddxgroup@gmail.com

If you wish your donation to be US tax deductible, consider making a directed donation through the NCDXF. http://www.ncdxf.org

Without significant support from the global DX Community, we will not be able to go forward with our plans.

  1. These are two more ATNO’s I need like I’m sure many others do. I’ve donated an initial amount once but plan to add to that in the near future as I hope others will do too. The power of a lot of smaller donations can add up big time. It’s not often there’s a two for one Dxpedition opportunity for us to help make happen. 73 Jeff / KI0KB

    This will be another great DXpedition that I will need. The intrepid group awesome. I will definitely donate to this one and whether I can work them from this QTH is still questionable but I will give it my best effort.
