Club Program Ideas: 100-pound DXpedition

image In this series on Club Program ideas, I’m providing possible programs for clubs to use in their meetings. You can find a full explanation of the approach in Club Programs – The Series.

Today’s program idea: 100-pound DXpedition.

The idea behind this is really a blog that was dedicated to the planning and execution of DXpeditions using 100-pounds of equipment or less.

The program would provide how to do a DXpedition using minimal equipment and weight, yet still performing well. After all, at $15 a checked bag, with more charges on top of it for weight, airlines would have a feast in fees from regular DXpeditions.

Bonus: this program idea can be used for anything that requires extensive planning to mitigate significant constraints. Backpacking the Olympic Mountain Trail with QRP. Bicycle radio station.

Or, focusing a program on one aspect of “going light” — antenna or radio.
