Audio Interviews – Amsterdam Island DXpedition

Audio Interviews –
Amsterdam Island DXpedition

On the weekend of the 11th and 12th of January 2014, I was fortunate enough to interview many of the members of the Amsterdam Island DXpedition to activate FT5ZM.

This is a DX community funded expedition with a $450,000 budget. It involves shipping 14 people to Amsterdam Island in the Indian Ocean with radios, antennas and computers and operating the station for two weeks.

The interviews range in length from 03:55 to 16:41 and cover all aspects of the DXpedition, from planning, to funding and fundraising, working a pile-up, building antennas, shack layout, computing infrastructure, day in the life, temperature and the journey.

I hope you enjoy and share the interviews and that it encourages more people into the hobby of Amateur Radio and more people to work DX across the world.

If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact me:


The interviews are in mono 256kbit mp3 format and can be downloaded from here:
