Dom, 3Z9DX, posted the following on their Web page and „eHam.net”: „Following our DXpedition to Kanton Island (Central Kiribati) in 2016, we decided to come back to this extraordinary place this year – with a new plan and resources. Next to a typically ham radio focused activity, we wish to connect our radio project with humanitarian aid mission addressed to the little, isolated community of Kanton Atoll. It’s inhabited by as little as 24 persons and their needs are often forgotten by local authorities and rest of the world. Apart from ham radio activity, our other goal is to focus on delivering a new gears and equipment needed for monitoring and prevention of natural disasters (such as early warning system of cyclones, earthquakes, tsunami). There are also necessary repairs to be done to the old, existing equipment. Without proper technical backup, the Kanton’s friendly and most welcoming community will be much more exposed to natural disasters and climate change side effects.There is also no fresh water on Kanton. Water maker machine will be very helpful for locals (they are using rain water to drink). If you want to support Kanton community, you can send paypal using button on our web page. Entire donations will be used for local community only. www.rebeldxgroup.com Our journey will begin around May 10th from Samoa. We plan to launch 2 stations operating FT8 24h non-stop + 3 more SSB/CW stations. We still have 5 seats to take by an organized group or individual amateurs.
