Intrepid-DX Group members, Paul Ewing-N6PSE and David Flack-AH6HY have received visas to visit the Democratic People™s Republic of Korea (North Korea) in June, 2013.
Paul will be traveling to Beijing, China in early June to meet our Chinese emissary who is the key negotiator on our behalf to bring a large multi-national Dxpedition to the DPRK. Paul will accompany the Chinese emissary to Pyongyang for further discussions.
We will present and discuss our proposal for a major Dxpedition, involving two teams of twelve members each to operate consecutively over a thirty day operation. This will allow each team member to work the Dxpedition from their home country.
In mid-June, Paul will return to Beijing, where he will be joined by David Flack-AH6HY. David has been to the DPRK many times and is our subject matter expert on the DPRK. Paul and David will then return to the DPRK and will visit and evaluate possible venues for the Dxpedition.
Paul and David will also visit Love North Korean Children Orphanage and Bakery locations in the DPRK. This is part of our P5 Project™s Humanitarian Appeal. In the fall of 2013, Intrepid-DX Group members N6PSE, AH6HY, K3LP and YT1AD will return to the DPRK and will continue to work towards our goal of conducting a major Dxpedition from within the DPRK. We will provide updates as necessary.
How you can help:
While we are not seeking any funding or support for our P5 efforts at this time, we would like to invite those who wish to donate to make a donation to the Love North Korean Children Orphanage and Bakery project. This is a very worth-while organization based in the UK. All of your donations will go to help the children in the DPRK.
