The hills are alive with the sounds of DXpedition planning!

After the long, virus induced dry-spell there are finally multiple operations to get excited about and to look forward to. The latest announcement being an expedition to Crozet Island, number three on the Most Wanted List according to Club Log.

The operation is planned to begin in December 2022 and INDEXA, the International DX Association, has already signed on as one of the principal sponsors:

INDEXA is pleased to announce that we are supporting the CROZET DXpedition being planned for December 2022-March 2023 by Terry F6CUK. On behalf of the generous members and supporters of INDEXA, the Officers and Board of Directors wish Terry a safe and successful DXpedition.

The Crozet Islands are a sub-Antarctic archipelago of small islands in the southern Indian Ocean. They form one of the five administrative districts of the French Southern and Antarctic Lands. The islands were discovered in 1772, by French explorer Marc-Joseph Marion du Fresne. His second-in-command Jules (Julien-Marie) Crozet landed on Île de la Possession, claiming the archipelago for France.

It’s remote location along with the fact that ham radio operators last invaded the island more than a decade ago has made Crozet Island a highly coveted DX conquest.

The International DX Association (INDEXA) is incorporated as a non-profit organization and has been managed by volunteers without compensation since 1983. In its many years of service to the DX community it has sponsored hundreds of DXpeditions to rare and semi-rare entities.

Join INDEXA today and help support this and other operations like it.
