Information

Update November 17, 2023: New web site is https://intrepid-dx.com/h40wa/


Update October 16, 2023: It is with a deep sense of regret, that we must inform you that the H40WA Dxpedition cannot go forward as planned from October 26th to November 9th 2023. At this time, we must postpone the Dxpedition and are tentatively scheduling a new expedition date for Feb 22nd 2024 through March 7th 2024.

A few weeks ago, we reported that all of our equipment was shipped to Honiara, and was to be transported by vessel onto Temotu. Unfortunately, we have just been informed that the transport ship has yet again been delayed, and our equipment will not make it to Temotu in time for our planned activation date. All other options have been exhausted and we have no other viable options other than to reschedule for the February/March timeframe.

The team is now working on getting our flights and hotel reservations rescheduled. If any of our donors/sponsors need a refund for your donations, please email pauln6pse@gmail.com for a refund.

Thank you,
Rob Fanfant N7QT, Co-Leader
Paul Ewing N6PSE, Co-Leader


Update September 14, 2023: Press Release #3 from the H40WA Temotu 2023 Team

The Intrepid-DX Group is pleased to announce that all of our plans to activate H40 Temotu Province are going well.

We are happy to report that all of our equipment is with Customs in Honiara, Solomon Islands. Our local agent will then arrange ferry transport to Lom Lom, Temotu Province. We had intended to ship our gear via Ocean Cargo however unplanned delays forced it to go via Air Cargo. As you can imagine, this is very costly! We have purchased additional generators in the Solomon Islands to add redundancy to our Dxpedition equipment. We are very serious about this operation and pledge to make the best activation possible.

We are also coordinating frequencies with the TJ9MD Team that recently announced their plans to coincide with H40WA. We will be regularly updating our website.

We have assembled a team of eight operators to make a fifteen-day activation of this entity. Temotu Province ranks #43 on Clublog’s most wanted DXCC list.

We will make a significant effort on the low bands during this activation. We will use 1500 watts on the 80/160 meter bands. We will use CW/SSB and FT8 Fox/Hound modes. We plan to be active during the CQ WW SSB Contest October 28th-29th.

All individual donors of $10 or more will automatically receive your LoTW and QSL cards via the mail. You may donate via PayPal to intrepiddxgroup@gmail.com or a donation to the Intrepid-DX Group 3052 Wetmore Dr, San Jose, CA USA. You can follow our plans from our website and the Temotu 2023 Facebook pages.

Update July 14, 2023: Today culminated in weeks of preparation and packing as all of our gear is shipped via air cargo to the Solomon Islands where it will be loaded onto a barge for the Temotu Province.

We will be active as H40WA from October 26th to November 9th, 2023. We will be active on 6 meters to 160 meters CW/SSB and FT8.

We appreciate any and all support for this project.

Thank you, Paul N6PSE / Rob N7QT - Co-Leaders
