As I write, and as you see on our “Sponsors” page, we have not listed a single Amateur Radio foundation or DX club that has donated to our cause (yet).
To answer a friends inquiry as to, “why is that?” – well, we’ve yet to see an offer from a foundation or club that did not come with “strings attached“.
Let’s be clear, IF a foundation or a club wants to donate to our cause they can – and we’ll gladly accept those donations to buy more Satellite Internet minutes, and we’ll also list them as a Donor, but don’t expect the Rebels to accept your list of members, your logo, requests for free QSL cards, LoTW requirements, online log specifications, QSL via bureau requirements, list of remote control ops and on and on, and on…
The Rebel DX Group thanks all of our listed Sponsors who have donated to date!
training continues in Cape Town for the 3Y0I DXpedition Team. Today was more First Aid and First Responder Training.
Somebody once said, “If you’re not part of the solution, you’re part of the problem”. Well that goes for pretty much everything in life now doesn’t it? Perhaps instead of asking why the Team has no RTTY plans or why we haven’t set sail yet – you should be asking, “what can I do to help?”
When the Rebel Team feels they are ready to go, the Rebel Team will go.
