About us


SP8S


The Rebel DX Group is a band of visionary members that seek to activate very rare and semi-rare DX locations with quality Ham Radio Operators from around the world.

For several reasons we believe more “lightweight” DXpeditions are beneficial to our Ham Radio Community.

Right off the bat we’d like you to know a few things about us.  Some in the hobby of Ham Radio have called us “Rebels”.  We don’t deny.  They say we are a “disruptive force”.  We don’t deny.  They’ve told us, “you can’t do it that way”.   We’ve proven we can.  The Rebel DX Group doesn’t look for trouble, but we can assure you we don’t run from it either.  We’re a Band of Rebel Brothers that seek out non-traditional ways to bring the Ham Radio Community contacts from far away places.  We are constantly on the lookout for new and cutting edge operational and funding possibilities.  We think, “out-of-the-box”.

Our Mission Statement is simple:   “To activate very rare and semi-rare DX locations with quality Ham Radio Operators from around the world.

What about Stan KE5EE ?
You can work him just on coax. This monster station in Florida can ‘see‘ the voices;)

Impressive isn’t it?  World Class Rebels, and that’s just a few of them.

Maybe you’d like to help fund (as a donor or investor) some of our Rebel DX Group DXpeditions?  Maybe you’d like to become a Member of the Rebel DX Group?  We’re betting many Hams may wish to participate in a DXpedition, but don’t know what to do to get started, contact us – we can help.

As our site evolves, please check in over the next few days/weeks/months because we have some big news coming.  We’ve never been keen on “announcements”,  but now that we have a Website, we may start using it for items like that.  In the right and left columns you’ll see pertinent information for DXers.  To keep up on all DX news there’s three separate DX News Feeds and our Facebook feed on the right, new Rebel DX Group Website posts and active solar numbers on the left.  We’re building this site to be a one stop shop for all things DX.  A Website built for Rebel DXers, by Rebel DXers.

There’s a stiff wind sweeping the DX Community, jump aboard Rebels, let’s sail
