Young ham wins DXpedition trip: Fourteen-year-old Daniel Bradke, W2AU, of Niskayuna, New York, will operate as part of the VP5X Contest Group for the CQ World Wide CW contest November 29-30. Bradke was the winner of a competition sponsored by VP5X (David Kopacz, KY1V). "Daniel's essay, operating skills and enthusiasm have moved our contest team to select him to be our first annual VP5X Young Ham Team Member," said an announcement on the VP5X Contest Group Web site. Bradke has held an Amateur Extra class license since age 11 and can handle CW at 30 WPM. He's a member of the ARRL, the Yankee Clipper Contest Club and FISTS and regularly operates during the ARRL Straight Key Night each New Year's Day (UTC). The trip to Turks and Caicos will mark his first DXpedition.

This story was "lifted" verbatim from the ARRL website so I informed them as well.
