The 2018 Long Beach Island ( LBI ) DXpedition was held from October 16 21 2018 in Beach Haven West, NJ. This year featured several new countries heard most notably Lithuania, Nigeria, and Turkey. With all participants utilizing SDRs, the logging list will be a work in progress, however in the interests of getting information out more quickly, the accompanying list should be considered as preliminary and our plan is to present a more complete listing in early 2019.
Antennas were 1) a 16x36 flag aimed at 40 degrees, 2) another 16x36 flag aimed at 180 degrees, 3) a 50x22 Delta aimed at 270 degrees and 4) a rotatable Wellbrook loop.
