About Discovery DXpeditions

I always planned cruising the Pacific and SE Asia aboard my sailboat S/V Discovery after I retired and wanted an amateur radio license to communicate on maritime nets using ham frequencies. So, In 2016, I got my ticket and caught the bug. So, I decided to combine both passions as I sail around the Pacific and SE Asia.

You can track my progress or see my current location by going to the "Where Am I?" page.


Many of the islands have questionable internet access, and I do not have internet service aboard the boat. DXpeditions will be uploaded to LoTW twice per year. QSL cards for DXpeditions will be sent twice per year. No eQSL.

Equipment

My portable station must be ferried from the sailboat to the shore each day for operations; shipboard ops don't count for IOTA even while anchored. So, activations while not barefoot are somewhat limited. 

RIGS: Elecraft K2/100 w/KAT 100, and/or KX3

ANTENNAS: SteppIr CrankIr, and BuddyPole dipole

MODES: CW (primary), FT-8, RTTY

POWER: Honda EU2000i generator

If you are here than you had a QSO with me, or hope too. Or perhaps you are curious about ham radio and operating in remote locations. So, I kindly ask that you help support my efforts in activating DX countries and Islands On The Air (IOTA) island groups. Please consider a donation to help offset some of the costs associated with licensing, travel costs, and other expenses typically associated with a DXpedition.

Thank you for your generous donations.
