Welcome to K3LP's Website

Maryland & Washington, D. C.

David - K3LP

Mt. Airy, Maryland USA - Frederick County

 

   
The Intrepid-DX Group, led by Paul Ewing-N6PSE and David Collingham-K3LP, is pleased to announce our next Dxpedition. In January 2016, a multi-national team of fourteen operators will converge in Stanley, the Falkland Islands and start a 34 day voyage aboard the R/V Braveheart to the #3 most wanted DXCC, South Sandwich Island and the #7 most wanted DXCC, South Georgia Island. The team will set up and operate from each island for approximately eight days, weather and sea conditions permitting.  
Our primary objective is to activate South Sandwich and South Georgia with a goal of providing as many Dxers as possible a “new one” with these rare DXCC entities and, as a secondary objective; we will focus on low-band contacts.
The team consists of fourteen operators and plans to have six stations on the air from 10 through 160 meters with SSB, CW and RTTY. There will be low band receive antennas and every effort will be made to utilize the propagation on all bands to all population areas.
 
You can find out more about our plans at our website: http://www.intrepid-dx.com/vp8
Thank you,
Paul Ewing (N6PSE) - Co-Leader
David Collingham (K3LP) - Co-Leader
