INDEXA WORLDWIDE QSO PARTY ---> Grown from a few people loaning equipment to
DX travellers to an organization that has sponsored  hundreds of DXpeditions
to dozens of DX entities around the world,  the International DX Association
is turning 40 years old in September.
To commemorate  this anniversary,  INDEXA  sponsors  a worldwide  on the air
celebration,  the "INDEXA Worldwide QSO Party".  The event will run on  2-10
September on 160, 80, 40, 20, 15 and 10 metres SSB, CW, and RTTY. This event
is open to all radio amateurs, INDEXA members and non-members alike.
The objective is to work as many  INDEXA members,  INDEXA Officials,  and as
many  non-INDEXA  members  as  possible  in  as many  U.S. states,  Canadian
provinces, and DXCC countries as possible.
A  user defined  contest module  is available  for use  in the  N1MM Logger+
logging programme which will log each QSO,  track multipliers, and calculate
your score. See https://indexaqsoparty.com/ for detailed information.

TX5S ---> The Perseverance DX Group's  DXpedition to  Clipperton Island  (18
January - 1 February 2024) [425DXN 1673] will have two operating camps:  one
for  CW/Digital/Satellite/EME  and  one for  SSB/Digital. "The camps will be
separated by about 500 meters,  with CW located at the main campsite and SSB
being the  distant camp.  The  combination  of  distance,  bandpass filters,
horizontal  and  vertically polarized  antennas  at both camps  will  enable
simultaneous operation on the same band". The power grid will consist of six
generators (five units on-line 24/7  and  one spare);  WiFi networking  will
link the camps  and  TX5S  will have at least one  Starlink terminal  online
24/7, so logs will be uploaded to M0URX.com at least once per day.
The nineteen person team  consists of  sixteen  experienced radio operators,
one scientist each from the University of French Polynesia and the Universi-
ty of Orleans,  and  one environmentalist  from the  Association la Passion-
Clipperton (France).
The  fundraising campaign  is underway:  "our goal is  always  to split  the
expedition funding  approximately equally  between the  expedition operators
and the DX community - organizations and individuals. At the moment we still
have a  long way to go  to reach that goal",  the team's  Press  Release  #5
states.  As most bills  must be paid  before the team sails,  donations  are
gratefully accepted: see https://clip.pdxg.net/donate/.  You can also follow
