Rebel DX Group Return To T31

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.


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. More information available upon email requests sent to dom@rebeldxgroup.com

Join our team and experience this extraordinary adventure with us.

Rebel DXers To Hoist The Sails!

The Rebel DXers to Hoist the Sails!

Members of the Polish Rebel DX Group launch an extended transoceanic project called “Travel Cheap to Top DXCCs” in early May 2018.  They plan to activate interesting and difficult-to-reach rare DXCC entities in the coming years – both on the Northern and Southern hemisphere.

The “Travel Cheap to Top DXCCs” project is a private and independent venture open to radio amateurs from all over the world – both individual participants and larger groups willing to charter our services exclusively.  We administer private advanced boats allowed to sail on every waters.  All paper works done like landing/entrance permissions, radio licenses are included in a package.  Participants may also count on our advisory in finding cheaper flights.

At the very beginning, we invite all interested hams to join our second expedition to Kanton Island (T31) in May this year.  A team of up to 10 operators will leave for Kanton from Samoa Island.  There are still 5 seats left.  Afterwards, another group will leave for Tokelau and Swains Island.  But that’s just a beginning – later this year we will regroup and head for South Africa for another epic adventure!

Join the Bouvet Island Expedition 2018

There were seats initially reserved for members of the 3Y0Z expedition.  To our surprise we’ve received absolutely no response to our courtesy and invitation.  Since then… are you ready for an adventure of your lifetime?  We offer an unique opportunity to join an international, interdisciplinary team of expeditioneers – scientists, TV crew and ham radio operators who will set foot at Bouvet Island yet in 2018.  Since the expedition demands certain skills and preparations, our offer is addressed only to experienced ham radio travelers.  We require full time availability, resistance to harsh, polar stormy sea conditions and being fully aware of decision-making to join the expedition.  We will accept only serious applicants submitting their CV and a letter of application via email sent to dom@rebeldxgroup.com.

We invite all interested hams to join our extraordinary project.

Bouvet Island DXpedition

Bouvet by The Rebel DX GroupBouvetøya (Norwegian) – a Rebel DX Group DXpedition to the most remote island of the world.

Our expedition will start in South Africa, from where we will sail to the Bouvet Island. We will cover over 2,800 nautical miles in the far South Atlantic.  It’s over … 5200 km!  After landing on Bouvet Island, we will install a camp and shortwave radio on the glacier plateau (it covers 93% of the island’s surface.  In good weather, we will get Olavtoppen – the highest peak of the island rising 760m above sea level”.
