Dear Fellow DXer May 13, 1967 Having resolved our problems(details on pages 2-3), we are preparing to complete the DXpedition. To accomplish this we need your immediate support; the time is NOW; it has taken over two months to clear up the DX situation and the expenses have been monumental; we will not be able to continue unless we receive the DX fraternity's wholehearted support! Around May 30th, funds permitting, we will again depart for the Indian Ocean, where our gear and a ship awaits us; during the following 3 months, if finances permit, we will try to visit the following DX locations(so far we have kept our "promises"): VQ8 Rodrigues 1G Geyser Rf ZA Albania XU Cambodia VQ8 Brandon LA Bouvet KC4 Navassa ***plus possibly three FR7 Tromelin VU Laccadives VP8 (3 locations) "new countries" FR7 Europa YI Iraq EA9,0(3 locations) To finish this DXpedition, we need your help now! We ask whatever support you feel able and willing to give; please use the SASE, below. Our deadline is May 30th - if funds are inadequate on that date, all donations will be return- ed and the DXpedition cancelled. Checks can be made out to any of the follow- ing: Don Miller Donald A.Miller,MD DX Expedition World Radio Propaga- Dr.Donald Miller DXpedition WRPSA tion Study Ass'n. QSL's will be handled in the following manner: Direct cards will be Sent from all locations to our staunchest friends and supporters; On comple- tion of the DXpedition, I will QSL 100% for all QSO's. Direct cards will be mailed either from on-the-spot locations or via the long Island DX Association, who will also dispatch early information on all plans via the LIDXA Bulletin and flash card service to all subscribers and all major DX bulletins. ARRL's 20 Feb. Statement(page 2) condones direct QSL's:"For example, in the Commit- tee's opinion, there is no question of ethics raised if a contributor is given preference in the mailing of a QSL card confirmation;," also, 96% of those replying to our DX poll indicate approval of this system. Again, the bulk of the QSLing will be completed at the end of the DXpedition, 100%. PLEASE GIVE US YOUR SUPPORT !
