The EUDXF Board of Directors decided to support the just completed Z66DX DXpedition to Kosovo.
Although this DXpedition does not comply to the funding rules set it was decided that because of the current special situation due to the Covid-19 pandemic the team deserves EUDXF support.

In the past weeks it became clear that Kenneth LA7GIA decided to step back as a EUDXF Board member.
Unfortunately there would be no AGM this year due to the Covid-19 situation which forced the remaining boardmembers to carefully check the rules to find a solution. As a result Achim DF3EC was asked to take the vacant seat as he was the runner-up during the last held AGM. Achim accepted the request and became EUDXF Board Member again.
The EUDXF Board like to say THANK YOU to Kenneth LA7GIA for his period as board member and expecially for the fresh ideas he brought with him.
Also THANK YOU Achim for taking the vacant position in the board.
Prof. Dr. Achim Rogmann
Following his request for support the EUDXF Board decided to support the upcoming TX0T DXpedition to French Polynesia (Tatakoto, IOTA: OC-298) between Oct 29 and Nov 5, 2020 by Cezar VE3LYC.
In the curent challenging times for travelling Cezar decided to accept the extra challenge of two Covid-19 tests and extra time in Papeete in order to have this project going.
There have been some interesting expeditions this year, but not as many ones to pretty rare DXCCs and IOTAs. Although this will be a New One for IOTA this is not a criteria for the EUDXF , this is the DXCC status. French Polynesia is listed on the Club Log Most Wanted at #81 for Europe, with a brake down of #68 in CW, #74 in SSB, and #100 in DATA. Well enough to be valid for EUDXF Support.
Cezar travels alone carrying two IC7000 radio’s with one KPA500 amplifier and two Multi-Band Verticals.
