TX5K gets the 2013 Best Communication Award

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOur award goes to TX5K, the Dxpedition to Clipperton island, for the large amount of information given before, during and after the operation on the official website www.tx5k.org and the related blog http://ky6r.com. The informations provided are extremely complete and range on several matters: from the documents describing the project http://cordell.org/CI/CI_pages/CI_Documents.html, the equipment, the pilots, the photo gallery. In particular, the very detailed informations that have been reported on the blog, let the readers experience every facet Best Communication Awardof the Dxpedition: from navigation to landing, from the environmental issues to the radio related questions, such as propagation conditions, operating methods for QSO’s, operators shifts, etc., and everything has been combined by several photos and videos. Congratulations to the team leader Robert Schmieder, KK6EK and the “Social Media” supervisor, Rich Holoch, KY6R for constantly keeping informed the Dxers’ community with press releases.

Many other Dxpeditions have made a very good job as far as communication is concerned and they deserve some acknowledgement. We had to limit ourselves to three “special mentions”, even though many other Dxpeditions would have deserved to be appointed. The choice was not easy, but our preference goes to:

5W0M – Western Samoa – 5w0m.hkmann.de,

VK9CZ – Cocos Keeling Islands – www.vk9cz.com

IA0MZ Antartica – https://www.facebook.com/II0MZ?fref=ts
