Welcome

Welcome to the website of the European DX Foundation (EUDXF), the first and only all European Foundation to support DX activities.

Our goal is to support DXers and expeditions (e.g. financial support, printing of QSL-cards) to allow the DX-community in Europe a fair share in their work. We also supply equipment to those in rare countries who cannot afford their own.

In November PB30EUDXF was activated. In hindsight not the best period because my QRL needed a lot of attention and I could be less QRV than desired. Also the conditions didn’t cooperate. Yet a lot of QSO’s were put in the log. Activating the EUDXF-call was a nice way to put the foundation on the map. I rarely had to explain the EUDXF-suffix or had to repeat the suffix. In short, the activity has certainly contributed to the well known reputation of the foundation.

Florian PB8DX @ PE3ØEUDXF

Hello,

my name is Florian, PB8DX and half October till half November I held the call-sign PE30EUDXF. As I don’t have a station at home I did operate this special call only from PI4COM. I had bad luck because my amplifier broke a month before and I hadn’t had a chance to get it fixed by then so the activity remained just a 100w. We have good antennas at our clubstation so as long as there was good propagation, i could work plenty of stations.

A few weeks before I came back from my travels in south Europe and small part of north Africa (EA7/EA9/ZB and CN) and I was looking for a job back in Holland. So plenty of time to do radio and even stayed a few times overnight to do some activities on the lowbands as PE30EUDXF.

I did about 50% SSB and 50% fast digi modes and a little CW to those who requested. I remember well a nice backscatter pileup I had on 12m, the antenna was beaming towards Africa and I worked several very loud stations from Russia, as soon as I start turning the antenna towards Russia the signal disappeared. The other thing I remember was the nice pile on 160 during the CQ WW SSB. I was doing SOSB 160 PB8DX but at the second night I was out of stations, just auto-CQ’ing for possible S&P stations that would pass by. So I decided to activate PE30EUDXF for a short while, obviously as soon as I got on the cluster the response was massive, just what I needed ;).  After all I did it to support the EUDXF and had real fun doing it. Hereby i congratulate the foundation for 30 years of existence and I hope to see all of you in Friedrichshafen.

73 and a good DX in 2017,

PB8DX Florian

Hi All

I`m Martin, PE1NCP, and since a couple of mounth member off the EUDX Foundation.

I saw on the cluster that some P…30EUDXF stations where active, and i thought ask Ronald,PA3EWP if it was possible to be active with a Call. So December was free for the call PH30EUDXF.

I was Active from 1 dec untill 28 dec.  It was a lot off FUN, to work sometime a litlle PILEUP..HI.. It was not neccesary to work split.

Last 2 weeks the propagation was verry bad, even to work Europe was of and on very LOW signals, but anyway, managed to work a little over 2300 qso`s. So many thanks for al the stations who worked me with this special call.

Hope to do it sometime again… with other Call…

 

Best regards

Martin, PE1NCP
