VK9MT: OPERATOR NEEDED ---> "To better distribute the workload and  keep  as
many stations on the air as possible, the Mellish Reef 2014 DXpedition  team
will add one additional operator to the team, bringing the total to 12.
We are seeking an experienced SSB and RTTY operator. The  pile-ups  will  be
energetic  and,  at  times,  challenging.    Candidates    must    have  the
'Determination - Time - Finances' to join this exciting DXpedition.
As with all projects of this type the team will share in the cost to  launch
the project. Each operator is putting up about 12,000 USD to pay  the  costs
associated with this  DXpedition.  Surplus  funds  will  be  evenly  divided
across the team after the books close. Each operator will pay their own  way
to and from Australia, as well as their living  expenses  before  and  after
the DXpedition.
Previous DXpedition experience is preferred but not required. We  welcome  a
seasoned DXer who is capable of  operating  over  an  11  day  period  on  a
rotating shift schedule. The team will sail to Mellish Reef on  a  25  meter
(crewed) passenger vessel with previous DXpedition experience.
You would need to be at Mackay, Australia no later than March 23,  2014  and
plan to leave Mackay on April 16, 2014.
If this opportunity interests you please send a short biography of your  ham
radio experience to info[@]vk9mt.com.
As the time is short, we would appreciate hearing only from  candidates  who
can commit to the project before January 15, 2014".
