The RIB: Radio In a Box for DXpeditions

The RIB is a complete station in a box. It can be remote controlled, either locally via Ethernet or via a 900 MHz wireless link. The RIB serves two goals: spead up and simplify DXpediton set-up, and it allows remote operation from the boat in places where authorities restrict access on environmental or safety grounds, or do not allow camping or overnight stays.

The RIB was developed using funding by the Northern California DX Foundation.  After testing in major contests from Wood Cay and other islands in the Bahamas it has been successfully deployed in 2023 around the Pacific from places including FO/AA7JV, VP6D and E51D.   Over 200,000 QSOs have taken place so far with 60% by operators remoting from around the world.
