For those who missed lunch or haven’t had enough to eat you can join the PI4ZI DX dinner, where Franz DK1II will do a presentation on the record breaking T32C expedition to Kiritimati, East Kiribati.

Come and see us in Friedrichshafen

EUDXF will be at Hamradio in Friedrichshafen. Please come and see us at stand A1-469.


In our stand there will be a display on the upcoming 1A0C activity from the Sovereign Military Hospitaller Order of St. John of Jerusalem of Rhodes and of Malta. Not only do we like SMOM as a DXCC entity, we also like the humanitarian activities of C.I.S.O.M., the civil protection organization of the Order of Malta. 



Like last year we will run a so called Eyeball QSO Contest. Participants are required to search for and obtain calls, names and signatures from as many different DXCC entities as possible by making “eyeball QSO´s” during the Ham Radio. The calls/names/signatures are to be recorded on a card that can be picked up in the EUDXF stand. Cards have to be turned in at the EUDXF stand “ A1 - 469“ on Sunday 11.00 hours at the latest and the one who has collected the most entities will be the winner. The winner(s) will be published on our website and will be awarded a prize. One of the prizes is a one year subscription to the Daily DX Magazine. Other prizes will be announced once confirmed.

No DX-pedition callsigns are allowed. Stations eyeballed must be resident in the country where they hold their callsign. By submitting the card, you agree with the decisions of the eyeball contest committee, formed by the EUDXF Board. Enjoy!


1A0CThirty years have passed since 1A made its way onto the DXCC list. And an activation by an International team looks to celebrate the uniqueness of this event. So, from the 1st to the 4th July, we will listen them on the air as 1A0C from Santa Maria del Priorato, home of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta.
The callsign that will be used belongs to the “The Order of Malta’s Italian Relief Corps (CISOM)”, an organization specialized in bringing assistance and relief during emergencies. This underscores the dual value of this activation. On the one hand, there’s the fun side ham radio, giving a not so easy “new one” to as many stations as possible (especially from the US and Japan).
On the other hand, however, there’s the noble goal, as often seen in ham radio, where a spirit of cooperation and mutual aid are shared by operators all over the world. The team’s aim, in fact, is to raise funds – thanks to donations and contributions from QSL requests – in order to buy radio equipment which The Order of Malta’s Italian Relief Corps volunteers will be able to use in case of emergencies.
The operators list includes: 1A0X, 1A0Z, EA2RY, EA5RM, EA7AJR, EA7KW, F5CWU, IN3ZNR, IT9YVO, IZ8IYX, PB2T, SP3DOI and KH6CG as a pilot for North America and Pacific.
They will be active on HF+6m and the QSLs for contacts with 1A0C can be requested via Francesco Cozzi, 1A0Z. Check
