ARRL Still Seeking Vintage DXpedition Logs for Archive
DXpeditions from yesteryear
ARRL continues to solicit paper logs of prominent DXpeditions that took place predominantly in the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s, for inclusion in The DX Log Archive Endowed by JA1BK. The DX Log Archive program was created, thanks to an endowment established by Kan Mizoguchi, JA1BK, to obtain, preserve and utilize paper logs from rare and significant DXpeditions. The archive can include pre-1950 paper logs as well as those from rare operations, and logs kept by long-time residents of very rare entities.
All logbooks received to date have been inventoried and are housed at ARRL Headquarters. ARRL Field Services Manager Dave Patton, NN1N, said the archive contains logs “from 3D2 through HZ3 — nothing after the Hs. That’s just the way it has worked out.”
Contact the program administrator with information about any logs that are available or known to be available, and ARRL will make a determination on their suitability for the archive.
