NCDXF ANNOUNCES MAJOR GRANT TO FT5/T TROMELIN
ISLAND DXPEDITION

In DX up-front, word that the Northern California DX
Foundation has announced a grant of $25,000 to the FT5
stroke T, Tromelin Island DXpedition planned for November of
this year.

Tromelin is a very small and very environmentally fragile
area.  As such, there are strict limitations to the number
of visitors and the time allowable on the island.  Because
of this it is currently number ten on the DX Magazine's Most
Wanted List for 2014 and number three most wanted on the
U.S. West Coast.

For the past 42 years the Northern California DX Foundation
has funded major DXpeditions to many Most Wanted Entities.
Without this type of financial support from the foundation,
DXpeditions like this to challenging or rare locations would
not be possible.
