The Twin Cities DX Association (www.tcdxa.org) in Minnesota has helped 
sponsor many DXpeditions over the years. Membership is open to anyone 
interested in supporting their mission of "*Dollars for DX*". Visit the 
website for details about all their sponsorships and activities.

While you're there, visit the publication page:  
http://www.tcdxa.org/newsletter.html#newsletter  where you will find all 
the issues of their Gray Line Report.

The current newsletter includes an interview with two members of the 
recent HKØNA team. The Malpelo Island crew and set a new record of 
190,000+ QSOs from a "tent and generator" DXpedition. Both Ralph Fedor - 
KØIR and Glenn Johnson - WØGJ provide a glimpse into the extreme 
conditions they found during their most recent adventure.

You might also be interested in seeing how an existing Rohn 55 tower is 
converted into a rotating tower without having to take it down and 
reinstall it from scratch. This was a "in place" conversion done solo!

The newsletter is in full color, downloadable in PDF format and has lots 
of photos. Congratulations also go to the Gray Line editorial team who 
have set a new record with this 47-page edition!
