Bangladesh DXpedition

The 'Foundation with Global Children (FGC) DX Group' is pleased to announce their next multi-national DXpedition to Bangladesh using the callsign S21YZ between March 17-30th.
Bangladesh is the 14th most wanted country in North America. Activity will be on 160-10 meters, including the 30/17/12 meter bands, and using the modes CW, SSB and RTTY.

They state, "We have a new and improved QTH and will focus on the low bands to maximize this time of year.

Also, we intend to listen carefully to the needs of the DX community during the operation by monitoring the activity on our Web site, and other social media outlets for band openings, and dialogue with the radio community."
