Located halfway between Africa and Australia, and just about as far away from North America as possible, this icy, windswept island has always held a top spot on the DX world's most wanted lists.  But just what kind of DXer does it take to leave home for six weeks and travel to such a faraway place?

Sailing with the famous R/V Braveheart to new extremes in the South Indian Ocean, and again using the "low power-vertical antenna" approach, join the Microlite Penguins DXpedition team as they battle through the seas and the pileups from yet another remote Antarctic destination!

Separated from New Zealand by over 1000 km, and located at the junction of two opposing continental plates, the Kermadec chain of islands is one of the most seismically active regions of the world. Raoul Island, located at its northern end, is home to a large volcano which violently erupted without warning on March 17, 2006.

Six months later, under the close supervision of the New Zealand Department of Conservation, the Microlite Penguins DXpedition team was offered a rare opportunity to explore Raoul Island, and activate yet another of the DX world's most wanted.

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.

Heard Island is one of the Earth's most pristine and isolated natural wilderness and one of the few places on the planet completely free from any human introduced species. Its remote, inhospitable, and almost as far from civilization as possible. This might explain why it has been twice occupied and twice abandoned.

Originally released for viewing to the general public on broadcast television, this 1998 documentary traces the early nineteenth century American sealing history through the Australian occupation in the 1950's, and finally to the famous 1997 DXpedition.

Described by Captain James Cook as the most horrible place on Earth, the South Sandwich Islands are also one of the most logistically difficult places for a DXpedition. Using only 100 watts and verticals, this experienced team took on the South Atlantic's tough environmental challenge by heading to Southern Thule - the planet's most southerly piece of land outside the Antarctic Treaty Zone.

Operating within the remains of an old Argentine base, (and amongst 100,000 penguins!) this video documents how a super-lightweight expedition set out to bring back the fun of old-time DXpeditions!

Bob K4UEE and Ed W4ZSB have produced yet another exciting DXpedition video.  In the tradition of previous video productions, the K5D Dxpedition video, entitled, "Desecheo---so rare, so near, yet so far" is full of exciting footage of the helicopter trips, the island from the air, camp set up and takedown, pileups you won't believe, an inside look into the logistics of a big DXpedition, interviews with key team members and of course, humor. 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.
Kingman reef may be the DXCC's smallest DXCC entity.  It is a living reef, very small and very isolated -- about 1,000 miles SW of Hawaii.  This 450ft long, 40ft wide pile of shells and coral was home for this international team for ten days.
Despite a "heck of a storm", it was a most successful DXpedition.  80,839 radio contacts were made on 160 through 6 meters -- making this the third most productive effort in DXpedition history.
