DX-Plaza at HAM RADIO

HAM RADIO has been traditionally a meeting point for many interested in DXing from all over the world. This is true for those activating rare entities or islands as well as the DXers chasing them. Many of these DXers are members of national or international clubs and foundations, whose main goal is to financially support DXpeditions. Quite a few of these clubs and foundations have attended HAM RADIO for years.

Amateur Radio on Tour – the motto of this year’s HAM RADIO 2019 – appeals directly to the DXers. Some groups coincidently decided to set up their stands in one large area instead of being dispersed all over the hall. This is how DX-Plaza was born.

Participants at DX-Plaza are:

  • European DX Foundation – EUDXF
  • Swiss DX Foundation – SDXF
  • Mediterraneo DX Club – MDXC
  • Islands on the Air Ltd – IOTA
  • Clipperton DX Club – CDXC
  • EI DX Group

The idea behind DX-Plaza is to facilitate discussions among all those interested in DXing, and also have a dialogue between the groups. We believe that this initiative will be successful, in which case we intend to keep DX-Plaza in place for years to come, perhaps with more groups joining in.

We look forward to welcoming many visitors and having interesting exchanges.

EUDXF support for the April/May 2018 DXpedition to Solomon Islands H44 and Temotu H40

The EUDXF Board is happy to share their decision to support the April/May 2018 DXpedition to Russell (Solomon Islands H44) and Duff (Temotu H40) Islands by Cezar (VE3LYC) and Bernard (DL2GAC, H44MS).

Although the main target of this expedition is the activation of two rare IOTA’s, the DXCC entities H44 & H40 are still ranking high enough according to ClubLog’s Most Wanted List for Western EU to qualify for EUDXF funding.

Cezar VE3LYC has proven excellent results during his last year DXpedition to the Northern Cook Islands as E51LYC. Cezar is an avid DXer, with DXCC HR 338/343, 5BWAZ, IOTA 1082, and over 2750 DXCC Challenge. He prefers CW and is a member of FOC (#1994), but also keen on SSB. Bernhard (DL2GAC, H44MS) will join Cezar for the operation from Russell Islands (OC-168). Bernard his operations from various IOTA groups around the world, particularly in Solomon Islands, Temotu, and Papua New Guinea are also welknown to the DX Community.
