November 3D2Z Rotuma DXpedition to Partner with Youth on the Air

In the interest of bringing more young amateur radio operators into DXpeditioning, the Pacific Islands DXpedition Group, Inc. (PIDXG) and Youth on the Air (YOTA) Americas are pleased to announce a partnership involving the upcoming 3D2Z DXpedition to Rotuma in November.

Rotuma DXpedition organizer Gregg, W6IZT will be taking two of his NexGenRiBs as a complement to the 6 member DXpedition on-island team. Gregg says, "Following the success with the remote radio used at the recent CBØZA Juan Fernandez DXpedition, we will have two remote stations available to young amateur operators through YOTA on
Rotuma. It is our hope that 75% of the remote contacts made from 3D2Z will be made by the youth participants."

The 3D2Z DXpedition is scheduled for November 15 to December 4.
