We have many to thank. The USFWS for allowing our operation after 22 years off-the-air. The terrific team of USFWS officers and biologists who accompanied us and became part of our team. Our sponsors, both equipment and financial, our team of radio pilots, our helicopter crew of Danilo, Nelson and JC, the staff of Moxon's Beach Club, the staff at Ian Fleming Intl. Airport and our new friends, the Haitian fisherman at Navassa. When we departed, they received gifts from us of gasoline, clean water, clothing, food and other items. Hopefully, this will help them in their difficult and dangerous existence.
Lastly, we want to recognize and thank a group of 1543 DXers. These people heard and responded to our plea for financial support prior to our DXpedition as this when the majority of our considerable expenses occurred. Last night, these special and generous people had their QSOs with K1N uploaded to LoTW (logbook of the world). This service was NOT a condition of their contribution, but comes as a completed surprise.
Thanks to you all for a memorable experience!
