I had a great time and really like the new venue in Marlboro. I attended the DX dinner on Friday evening and after an enjoyable meal we were treated to an excellent presentation by Don – N1DG on the E51D DX-pedition that was running during the eXpo. Don’s explanation on the new RIB (Radio In a Box) technology now being employed by some current DX-peditions was fascinating and demonstrates the ability of the Ham community to rise to the occasion and develop a new way to activate rare DX entities with minimal human impact on the fragile environment of some locations.

Following the dinner and presentation, we spent the following hours discussing DX as well as chatting with many old acquaintances. That is exactly what makes these in person gatherings so valuable.
