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 DX-ers 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.


Thanks to the CTDXCC

The EUDXF is grateful for the financial support we received this week from the CTDXCC Central Texas DX and Contest Club. Their donation provides us with additional possibilities to support DXpeditions and other DX related projects.

The Central Texas DX and Contest Club has about 150 members worldwide and locally have about 40 members who attend meetings regularly.  The members consist of some of the best DX’ers and Contesters in the World.  The website lists all members and for sure you will recognize a number of them.  The CTDXCC website is: www.ctdxcc.org.

The CTDXCC gives money every year to worthy causes and this year they decided to support the EUDXF, and also the NCDXF, INDEXA and IREF. 

2019 EUDXF Activity Month Wrap-up

The November 2019 EUDXF activity month was indeed an activity month with clear presence of the EUDXF on all bands and modes.
The special 33EUDXF stations from France, Hungary, Norway, Germany and the Netherlands together made 34343 QSOs.

The special 33EUDXF award has been requested 239 by 143 different stations. Again a growth in interest in this special award.

So we can safely state that the 2019 EUDXF Activity Month was a great success.

EUDXF supports the TI9A DXpedition to Cocos Island

From February 2nd until February Feb 7th, a group of four operators will be active from Cocos Island, using the callsign TI9A.
The QTH will be Chatham Bay, which is the only suitable location for Europe.
The license is confirmed and they have all necessary permits from Parque Nacional Isla de Coco, to land and stay on Cocos Island during the above mentioned period. They will travel with the vessel Okeanos Aggressor which will depart Punta Arenas, Costa Rica, on January 30th (PM) and expect to reach Cocos Island 35-40 hours later, depending on sea conditions. Antenna installations will take place on February 1st, and operation will start the day after, at 0000 UTC on February 2nd.

The team consists of RA9USU (Team-Leader), UA3AB, RM2D (SM6LRR) and TI2JV.
They will run 3 stations simultaneously 24/7.
Main modes will be CW, SSB and FTx.
The team anticipates that there will be a high demand for FTx contact. There plan is to have 2 multi channel stations active, using Fox and Hound Mode.
The dedicated CW ops with also good SSB skills, will ensure that the three CW/SSB stations will maximize the operation and yield high rates and focus on the challenging EU path.

The team will carry 5 complete stations to the island including TS590 and K3 radio’s, and Expert 1.3, ACOM1010 and JUMA1000 amplifiers
