The Northern California DX Foundation is pleased to announce it is granting $5,000 to the JX0X 2021 Jan Mayen Island DXpedition planned for September/October 2021. Jan Mayen Island is inhigh demand on the LF bands by DXers in North America and East Asia and is a primary focus of this team.

DXpedition team leader Ken Opskar, LA7GIA, says “the JX0X team (is) very pleased to have received this major grant from NCDXF. With the trust you have shown by supporting us, we will put a lot of effort in making a good low band show in 2021. We are aware of how much JX is needed in NA and look forward working many NA DXers!

DXpeditions to rare entities like Jan Mayen Island that are so remote are becoming more expensive, a trend that we believe will continue.

NCDXF’s primary purpose is to help fund well-organized DXpeditions to desirable DXCC entities like South Orkney Island.  During the last 48 years, NCDXF has granted nearly $1.2 million to hundreds of DXpeditions – helping to put an “all-time-new-one” (ATNO) in the log and make DX happen for thousands of DXers worldwide.  The credit for these large grants goes to the NCDXF contributors, individuals and clubs who support the DX community.  Without those contributions, DXpeditions to entities like Bouvet or other desirable locations would not be possible.

We wish the JX0X Jan Mayen Island DXpedition team a safe and very successful trip to Jan Mayen Island next year.
