EUDXF Annual General Meeting 27 August 2022
All members received their personal invitation for the 2022 General Meeting. We are looking forward to meet you there:
EUDXF Board Elections coming up
Three years have passed which means EUDXF Board elections will be held during the upcoming annual meeting, August 27, 2022 in Bad Bentheim.
As the rules of the foundation prescribe, all members may propose candidates. In order to ensure that the procedures surrounding the board elections run smoothly, these proposals must be in the possession of the board by 1 June 2022 at the latest via firstname.lastname@example.org
EUDXF Founding President Dieter Löffler (ex DK9KD) SK
With deep sadness we have to announce that our first president Dieter Löffler has passed away on 16 February 2022.
Our life-member passed away just few days after his 86th birthday. When EUDXF was founded in 1986, Dieter volunteered as first President of our club and he served in this position for a remarkable period of eleven years. Despite his high workload from running his own company in Cologne he restlessly worked enthusiastically in order to establish and expand the young DX foundation and to further develop it to a trade mark in the DX community. From its very beginning it was Dieter’s merit that EUDXF grew to a powerful association which was able to support countless DXpeditions around the globe. Many of the QSL cards from these “good old times” show the EUDXF logo due to generous sponsoring which in many cases was not paid by membership contributions rather than Dieter’s personal budget. Dieter took care that from the very beginning all EUDXF members received the annual newsletter. Only his wish to retire from his responsible task led to a handover into younger hands in 1997. It is hard to overestimate his support and devotion to our foundation. We owe him a great debt of gratitude for his extraordinary dedication. We will honour his memory.
On behalf of the EUDXF Board and Officers,
Dominik, DL5EBE – EUDXF President
