         beverage antennas. The operation will be generator based,  and  two
         different radio locations may be used. The period includes  the  CQ
         WW DX CW Contest, with some single-band entries  and  low-band  SSB

         of transportation. The group  welcomes  support  from  individuals,
         clubs  and  foundations  to  offset  some  of  the  high  equipment
         transport expenses. Further information and updates will be  posted

on its way to New Zealand to loaded aboard our  ship,  the  MV  Braveheart",
while other needed items are being procured by "the Braveheart crew and  our
VK6 friends". These "materials will all come together in  January  when  the
Braveheart and the FT5ZM team arrive in Fremantle, Australia".
"We are in the phase of the DXpedition where large expenses  are  coming  at
us rapidly. We are staying within our budgeted expenses,  but  contributions
have been somewhat less than we had hoped. It  now  appears  almost  certain
that the team members will have  to  increase  their  personal  contribution
from $10,000 per person to $12,500 per person as well as pay their  own  way
to and from Fremantle. If you've contributed to  the  DXpedition,  we  thank
you. If you've yet to help us, or if you can send some additional  help  our
way, we can certainly use any financial  support  that  you  can  give  us".
