The Northern California DX Foundation is pleased to announce it is granting $20,000 to Thierry Mazel, F6CUK, for the 2022 Crozet Island DXpedition planned for December 2022 thru March 2023. Crozet Island is #3 on the ClubLog Most Wanted List world-wide and #2 in North America.

DXpeditions to rare entities like Crozet Island that are so remote are becoming more expensive and more logistically challenging, a trend that we believe will continue. Hopefully this experienced DXpedition operator can exploit this rare opportunity to access Crozet Island, put out an effective signal on all the bands and log all of the needy over the course of his extended stay.

NCDXF’s primary purpose is to help fund well-organized DXpeditions to desirable DXCC entities like Crozet Island. During the last 49 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.

If you agree with the importance of NCDXF’s work, and if you are not a current contributor, we hope you will become one today by clicking here. Your contribution will continue to help make DX happen. You can also support future DXpeditions by including the NCDXF Cycle 25 Fund in your estate plan.

We wish Thierry a safe and very successful trip to the Island next year.
