Access to the main functions of www.425dxn.org is provided by the 425DXN App
for Android. It is available on Google Play - free of charge, no ads. Enjoy!

1A0C ---> The 1A0C team has been QRV since 26 July as planned [425DXN 1681].
Operations  are taking place  from  the  Sovereign Military Order of Malta's
Magistral Villa on the Aventine Hill in Rome. QSL direct to EA5RM.  Detailed
QSLling policy, logsearch and OQRS can be found on http://www.1a0c.com/.

4W8X: LOCATION SETUP & LOW BAND ANTENNAS ---> Lagunaria DX Group's  November
2023 DXpedition to Timor Leste [425DXN 1677]  "will have two operating sites
which are  500m apart.  The main location,  which we have also used  for our
4W1A scouting trip in April,  will serve all eleven bands from 160m thru 6m.
The second location will serve seven bands  from 40m thru 10m.  The physical
separation will enable us  to provide two signals  on the same band  at  the
same  time - one CW and one SSB.  Please note that CW and SSB  are our  pre-
ferred modes, followed by RTTY.  We'll give FT8 a chance,  but we definitely
prefer the man-made operating modes".
As for the low bands, 4W8X will have  two 30m 4-Squares,  two 40m 4-Squares,
one 80m 4-Square and one  Titanex V160 vertical with  extensive radials  for
160m.  For receiving, they will have  two Beverages  (about 250m long)  plus
filtering/switching network to listen in  four directions,  independently on
160m and 80m: Europe (short path); North America (short path);  Africa, same
as North America (long path); South America, same as Europe (long path).
More updates highlighting different aspects of the DXpedition will be posted
to http://timor-leste-dx.de/news/index.php  on a weekly basis.

IDXC 2024 ---> Hotel reservations for the  75th International DX Convention,
sponsored by the  Southern California DX Club,  will open  on 31 July  at 17
UTC: https://www.dxconvention.org/index.html.  IDXC 2024 will be held at the
Visalia Convention Center on 12-14 April.
