TX5K - Clipperton Island - 2013

Members of the LAGUNARIA DX GROUP were responsible for planning and conducting the HF radio operations of the 2013 Clipperton Island DXpedition (TX5K). While Cordell Expeditions took care of permissions, infrastructure and camping, the LAGUNARIA DX GROUP did the planning for the HF radio operations, prepared the equipment (which was mostly sent from Germany to California by sea freight) and conducted the radio operations in a team of 22 operators.
