The VP8STI/VP8SGI work continues….

Posted: May 16, 2016 in Uncategorized


Just some of the VP8STI/VP8SGI equipment arriving back in California.

Since we returned home in February, we have written our DXpedition articles and we have begun making presentations and telling our story. Our QSL Management Team has been very busy getting the VP8STI/VP8SGI and VP8IDX QSL cards into the mail.

This week, we received the shipment of the contents of our Sea Container that was shipped from Cape Town back to California. The container held our radio gear, antennas, coax, tents etc. The two large wood crates hold our aluminum phased verticals for 80 and 160 meters. These are very heavy.

We will sort and inventory all of this gear and ready much of it for our next DXpedition-destination unknown.

We will return loaned and sponsored equipment to our sponsors.


Next month, we will prepare our US tax return, yes-DXpeditions have to report their income and pay taxes. Its all a part of this great activity that we do.

Soon, we will have a great VP8STI/VP8SGI video for you to see and share our adventure.

What do you think?

    Paul – I am happy for you that all your DXpedition equipment has been safely returned and am looking forward to ordering your VP8STI/VP8SGI video. Hopefully, you’ll soon be able to discuss your next planned operation. We’ll be listening. 73 es DX, Warren, NW4C

      Hi Warren, it sure was a pleasure meeting you in Visalia. We like to post our DXpedition videos on for free for everyone to enjoy as much as they want. So watch my Blog and when the video is completed, I will share the link.

      Best wishes,

      Paul N6PSE

      Fantastic job Paul & team. It was really fun working you guys and thank you for your efforts. Paul, we briefly met at Visalia just before your breakfast presentation. I wish we had more time to talk. I see that K3LP is going to do a presentation at the W9DXCC convention in September. You should make the trip too! (nudge)

    Paul and company (knowing it’s not one person involved),

    Thank you for the 27 band slot confirmations, including of course the 2 ATNO. It was a job well done and the drama about surviving it made each contact that much more interesting.

    I look forward to the video,

    Rick WA6NHC
