Once agin, the annual LBI DXpedition fell victim to the pandemic, so we held yet another "virtual" DXpedition from of Dec 17-19 2022. Ralph Brandi graciously set up SDR receivers as well as a kiwiSDR at his home near the New Jersey coast & attached them to antennas pointed toward Europe and Latin America. Having a real-time kiwiSDR available gave the event a little more of a realistic feeling.
It was disappointing to not get together in person for the third year in succession as we had done for nearly the past two decades.
DX conditions were poor during the event, with few overall loggings and fewer countries represented than in our more recent live DXpeditions. See the LOGS section for more details.
Once again we are hopeful that we will be able to have a real DXpedition sometime in the future, although the sale of our DX house means either a return to the Drifting Sands motel or finding a new house.
