Program: The South Sudan STØR DXpedition
We'll be showing the DVD of the STØR DXpedition.
The Intrepid-DX Group and the DX Friends have combined efforts for their DXpedition to the newly created country of South Sudan starting after July 9th 2011.
The Intrepid-DX Group is the group which brought you the 2010 YI9PSE, IRAQ DXpedition. The DX Friends have brought you the 2006 SØ1R DXpedition to Western Sahara, the 2008 DXpedition to Rwanda as 9XØR, the 2009 DXpedition to Western Sahara as SØ4R, the 2010 DXpedition to Palestine as E4X and the 2010 DXpedition to San Marino as T7ØA.
As with previous DXpeditions, this was a major effort. There were five stations on the air, using amplifiers along with high performance beams and vertical dipole arrays, 24 hours a day for fourteen days.
Our primary objective was to activate South Sudan with a view to giving as many DXers as possible a first contact with this new DXCC entity and, as a secondary objective, to give as many band-slots as possible.
