Today we finalized the 36EUDXF Activity Month by sending out the final awards to the applicaants.
So, if you applied for the award but have not received it, please send a mail to Alex PA1AW so we can get you the award.
We do not take new applicants as the deadline for the awards was 31 december 2022.
In total we received requests for 109 awards which is very much in line with earlier years, however it was clearly more difficult to obtain the contacts for the Gold en Platinum awards, only 3 applicants made the Platinum award which clearly is an achievement.
The 36EUDXF event stations in total made 28732 qso’s spread over all band and all modes, more detailed figures will be in the upcoming EUDXF newsletter.
In addition to the 109 awards also 16 awards went to the operators of the 36EUDXF event stations for their activity during the EUDXF Activity Month. A big thank you to those operators.
Most likely their will be a 37EUDXF Month in November 2023, please feel free to join with an SeS from your country.
The past two days 76 awards were issued and still more requests are coming in.
Apparantly the 2022 rules were more difficult compared to previous years as less Gold and Platinum requests have been received so far.
Have you worked a lot of the 36EUDXF stations during november it might be worth checking https://www.eudxf.eu/the-36eudxf-award/ for the rules.
This afternoon I thanked the operators of the various 36EUDXF stations for their efforts to make the 36EUDXF activity week to a succes.
They made sure that there was activity and a daily presence of 36EUDXF related stations on various bands and many modes.
An indepth analysis will follow shortly.
There is one conclusion which we can mention here; the 36EUDXF ACTIVITY Month really brought EUDXF activity.
For those who worked an selection of 36EUDXF station please feel free to apply for the 36EUDXF award:
