The Lagunaria DX Group always has been not only a group of DXers, but also dedicated contesters. Some of them are already involved in preparations of the upcoming World Radiosport Team Championship (WRTC) 2018 in Germany. So it was a matter of course to support this unique event with a tent sponsorship.
The Lagunaria DX Group will sponsor Tent OC #2 (Australia, New Zealand and South Pacific) because of its close relationship to this region of the world. Several DXpeditions of the group and also by individual members (VK9N, VK9L, VK9W, ZL8, YJ, A3, KH8/s,...) took place in this WRTC qualification region.
The LAGUNARIA DX GROUP is named after lagunaria patersonia, or Norfolk Island Hibiscus, one of the most beautiful flowers on Norfolk Island, the place where the first DX-pedition of this group took place.
The LAGUNARIA DX GROUP is a group of dedicated DXers, many of them highly experiencend DXpeditioners to numerous places around the world. All of them own a strong contest background and are members of the Bavarian Contest Club (BCC). Their callsigns can be found in all major contests around the year.
The LAGUNARIA DX GROUP combines operating skills with profound knowlegde of radio-propagation. The group does not only operate the highbands but also has a clear focus on the lowbands mainly on 160m and 80m.
The LAGUNARIA DX GROUP has developed new antenna configurations especially to be used in DXpeditions (WILMA).
The LAGUNARIA DX GROUP has carried out four DXpeditions so far (VK9DNX, VK9DWX, ZL8X and VK9DLX/VK9LM) and was the technical and operational brain during the TX5K DXpedition to Clipperton Island in 2013.
