The Banaba DXpedition has opened a bank account in France for this DXpedition.

Due to the high cost of this operation on a remote Pacific Island, the group is asking for sponsorship by various DX organizations around the world. Banaba Island (T33) is one of the top 25 most needed countries in the world. Travel to the island requires chartering a sea going vessel, plus bringing nearly all the supplies required for a two week stay. Additionally, we hope to maintain five stations on the air at all times.

Donations will help to fund this trip. Without sponsorship it becomes too expensive to do. Everyone of the participants on the DXpedition will also contribute over $3000 to participate.
