2017 Worked All NCDXA RST Stations:A Special Event Covering All of Northern North America!
Members of the North Country DX Association (NCDXA) will be active the entire month of March 2017 from several different locations in Alaska, Yukon, Northwest Territories, Nunavut and Greenland using all NCDXA RST fixed station calls KL7RST, VY1RST, VE8RST, VY0RST and OX7RST to further promote Amateur Radio in northern North America. This is our 2nd annual special event with the addition of OX7RST, more rovers and fixed stations, new QSLs and certificates! All modes 6-160 meters and WARC bands are permissible. SWLs are welcome to participate. The object is to work or log (SWL) as many NCDXA RST stations as you can from their different locations. To participate you need to work each RST station only once per their QTH, band and mode. No cross band, cross mode or remote operating allowed. Portable rover RST Stations will also participate. Some of the portable stations are:
KL7RST/KL7, VY1RST/VY1, VY1RST/KL7, VE8RST/KL7 and VE8RST/VY1 etc. Watch the DX spots as we plan to have stations on from a Canadian research station near the North Pole on Ellesmere Island, a diamond mine in NWT, an Alaskan bush school, an OM/YL team from Nuuk, Greenland and many other cities up north large and small and maybe a station will be on from VE7/VE8 border! For your convenience, well upload our logs to ARRLs LotW.

The best of my best DX trips in full color! Operating takes place in polar bear country, on a glacier, from rare and remote islands and other locations. Contests, special events and using homebrew antennas or modified CB antennas on 10-80 meters make the reading "ride along interesting, action filled and as real as it gets with ham radio". The kind of Amateur Radio adventures that most hams only dream of!
