Additional DVD features include post-contest score breakdowns, historical WRTC archive, and the full competitor rulebook.

This professionally produced video is a masterpiece and is a must have for every amateur radio enthusiast excied about WRTC 2014 in New England.

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.
Ten top CW/DXers/contesters gather for the 2002 CQWW CW Contest in Burkina Faso, West Africa.  Their mission is to seek "balance" -- the unique combination of good fun, exotic locations, great experiences, interesting people and significant contest results !
With antennas mounted high above Ouagadougou on the roof of the Splendide Hotel, the team competes all out -- the pileups are unbelievable!

AH1A, Howland Island -- where Amelia Earhart disappeared

XRØY, Easter Island -- and its massive and unusual statues

VKØIR, Heard Island -- with its ominous and active volcano rising to 8,000ft

FOØAAA, Clipperton Island -- populated with curious, very busy orange crabs

A52A, Bhutan -- the mysterious and exciting Kingdom nestled in the Himalayas

3YØX, Peter One -- Nearly 90,000 Qs from the bottom of the world

VU7RG, Lakshadweep -- From the #2 most wanted DXCC entity

These seven DXpedition video excerpts tell compelling stories of fear, frustration and sheer joy as DX traveler Bob Allphin, K4UEE recounts the highlights (and lowlights) of his most heralded trips, all named "DXpeditions of the Year".  Is is personal, emotional, humorous and sometimes frightening.  It is about ham radio… but as you will see -- "it ain't all about radio".

Malpelo Island, off the coast of Colombia in the Pacific, ranked #12 on the DXCC "most-wanted" list -- but no longer!  An international team of twenty hams from six nations made an astonishing 195,292 QSOs in fifteen days of operation.  This set a new world record for "tent and generator"-type DXpeditions.  And we were rewarded by being selected as DXpedition of Year for 2011-2012.

This near-vertical island of 86 acres represented an extreme physical challenge for the team.  Team members were winched onto the island from zodiacs and then faced a 300' climb just to get to the first operating site.  Even more challenging was the 600' vertical climb to the operating site located at the top of the 980' mountain peak.

This video captures the planning and organization phases, the non-stop pileups, humor and local animal life -- as well as incredible footage of team members climbing the mountain.  In all my experience, this was the most physically difficult DXpedition of all.
