To better distribute the workload and keep as many stations on the air as possible the Mellish Reef 2014 DX-pedition team will add one additional operator to the team, bringing the total to 12.
We are seeking an experienced SSB and RTTY operator. The pile-ups will be energetic and, at times, challenging. Candidates must have the “Determination – Time – Finances” to join this exciting DX-pedition.
As with all projects of this type the team will share in the cost to launch the project. Each operator is putting up about $12,000(USD) to pay the costs associated with this DX-pedition. Surplus funds will be evenly divided across the team after the books close. Each operator will pay their own way to and from Australia, as well as their living expenses before and after the DX-pedition.
Previous DX-pedition experience is preferred but not required. We welcome a seasoned DXer who is capable of operating over an 11 day period on a rotating shift schedule. The team will sail to Mellish Reef on a 25 meter (crewed) passenger vessel with previous DX-pedition experience. You would need to be at Mackay, Australia no later than March 23, 2014 and plan to leave Mackay on April 16, 2014.
As the time is short, we would appreciate hearing only from candidates who can commit to the project before January 15, 2014.
We hope to hear you in the pile-ups.
Team Mellish Reef 2014
