Our Friends At Home - The K7C Relay Stations

DXers have gotten used to the idea of "pilot" stations, pioneered by ON4UN
for the VKOIR expedition to Heard Island.  These stations generally provide
valuable assistance to the expedition, reporting to the team about
conditions and activities as seen from afar and providing advice and
information to DXers trying to make a QSO with the team.  With the
introduction of the DXA Web portal, the pilot stations can now provide even
more value and are called "Relay Stations".

Most importantly - we want to be sure that everyone understands that the
Relay Stations are NOT the same thing as DX Net "M.C." stations.  They will
NOT be assisting individual DXers make contacts with K7C.  They will NOT be
"re-broadcasting" audio from the expedition so that DXers can hear K7C
better.  They will NOT be providing reports on whether a specific call is in
the K7C log.  It's up to the DXer to make the QSO by making the most of his
or her own skills, wits, and stamina.  The Relay Stations will be
contributing material to the DXA Web portal in support of the expedition and
to enrich the information available to DXers during the operation.

What DOES a K7C Relay Station do, that a pilot doesn't?  Think of the Relay
Stations as reporters, covering the K7C expedition and publishing their
reports on the DXA Web site.
They might.

*   Capture audio off the air and upload it to the DXA Web site as a sample
*   Post news and messages from the team to the DXA Web site
*   Collect information from DXers and post it to DXA
*   Generate material such as charts, descriptions, graphs, etc. that may be
    of interest to DXers

Their goal is to provide information to the large number of DXers that will
be chasing K7C QSOs to avoid duplicating effort, reduce unnecessary QRM, and
get more DXer callsigns in the K7C log.  Remember that the idea of Pilot
stations was a little strange at their introduction, but they have proved to
be invaluable for larger expeditions that attract significant pileups.  The
K7C team anticipates that the additional assistance rendered by Relay
Stations will be seen as natural and as accepted as Pilot stations are
today.

Steve Wright VE7CT is coordinating our relay operators:
*    Chief Pilot and West Coast - Steve Hammer K6SGH
*    Canada - Paul Peters VE7AVV
*    Germany - Roger Mulzer DL5RBW
*    South Africa - Bernie Van der Walt ZS4TX
*    Scandinavia - Jaakko Silanto OH1MA
*    Mexico - Joaquin Solana XE1YJS
*    Israel - Ami Shami 4X4DK
*    Britain - Don Field G3XTT
*    Hawaii - Lee Wical KH6BZF

The K7C team is deeply appreciative to these individuals for their
assistance!

NOTE - we don't yet have a relay station from East Asia (such as Japan,
China, Indonesia, etc.) or Oceania.  If you would like to fill that need,
contact VE7CT at his Callbook address.

An NOAX DXing Tip - if you're new to the DX game or just getting back into
it, an excellent book to read in preparation for the pileups is The Complete
DXer by Bob Locher W9KNI, published by Idiom Press (idiompress.com).
Everything you need to know to work K7C is in that book - and you'll be a
better DXer for reading it!
