    Great Idea! Ah to be young again.

    I am interested but my parents are over protective. So most likely that will not happen. So whats the price from Chicago to Australia?

    Never mind I am experienced in pileups but not 18 through 29.

    Nope not me either.

    You can reside in any country in the world, you hold a valid amateur radio license in your country, you have some experience in working pile-ups and you are between "18 and 29."

    I vote for Cal as well to go. Perhaps a Benevolent DX Club could sponsor him as he is the most Qualified and Responsible young ham here on the net! Don't know what the cost is, but wealthy organizations like NCDXA and YASME should also consider contributing to the cause. I know he would probably have to take some time off from school, but he can always study his Calculus and Pre-Med subjects before his shift in the pileups. This is the opportunity of a lifetime, and no one in the world is more deserving than Cal to go! They need to WAIVE the age limit of 18 in this case as Cal has shown that he is responsible well beyond his age and can keep up with the best of them over 18!

    I'd love to go, but I'll be 30 in about a week or so.

    One month short!

    I would LOVE to go!

    I first found out about it through an email sent to me by a member of the Minnesota Wireless Association. Immediately after I received the email, I started writing up a 500 word essay to send in..... then I saw the age requirement. I thought it would be okay for someone to be under 18, but I guess not. There are too many legal issues to deal with if they were to invite a minor to come with.

    Oh well.... there will always be the next DXpedition..... and when I turn 18. :D
