For the fourteenth consecutive year and from the seventh West African country, here comes the Voodoo Contest Group (often called the VooDudes) on the move again.  This time from Bamako, Mali (TZ5A). to Conakry, Guinea to operate as 3X5A.

Travel along with the team as they move their 2,000 pounds of equipment 600 miles overland with two AK-47-toting guards.  Strain along with the team and their local helpers as they put up eight antennas before the CQ World-wide CW contest in November 2007.  Hear the massive pileups as each man gets a chance to show his CW prowess in front of the video camera.

If you like pileups--you'll love this video!
Peter I Island, 275 miles off the west coast of Antarctica and south of most of the Antarctic bases, was one of the most wanted DXCC entities -- until twenty-one international ham operators plus a non-ham world traveler took on the daunting task of mounting the most costly DXpedition in history.

Considered by some to be the DXpedition of the Decade, this 3YØX DVD brings the danger and excitement right into your living room.  See the helicopter flights, hear the howling storms and incessant wind, and struggle along with the team as they erect shelters and antennas.

Hear the huge pileups as heard from the bottom of the world at the bottom of the sunspot cycle.

Watch the daring rescue of a team member and three ship's crew members as they remove the last gear from the island.

All this in an hour-long drama.
Tucked away, far up in the Eastern Himalayas is the tiny Kingdom of Bhutan - one of the most isolated and unknown nations on Earth - and one of the most wanted DXCC entities of all time.

This film will take you to a nation and a people rarely seen by the outside world (even on television or video). Experience what is actually like to be behind the scenes at one of the world's ultimate destinations with some of the best operators ever assembled.

Watch this record one of the strangest DXpeditions to ever occur.

Located in the South China Sea just west of the Philippines, Scarborough Reef is without a doubt the rarest and most controversial entity on the DXCC list. Few places are harder to access, and fewer still create such intense debate.

Because of diplomatic disputes between its two feuding masters, China and the Philippines, the reef has seen just  three brief expeditions in the past, keeping it at the top of the DXCC list for over a decade.

This film takes a close look at the Scarborough controversy, and follows the 2007 DXpedition team as they activate the rarest DXCC entity on Earth.
