HAM RADIO has been traditionally a meeting point for many interested in DXing from all over the world. This is true for those activating rare entities or islands as well as the DXers chasing them. Many of these DXers are members of national or international clubs and foundations, whose main goal is to financially support DXpeditions. Quite a few of these clubs and foundations have attended HAM RADIO for years.
Amateur Radio on Tour – the motto of this year’s HAM RADIO 2019 – appeals directly to the DXers. Some groups coincidently decided to set up their stands in one large area instead of being dispersed all over the hall. This is how DX-Plaza was born.
Participants at DX-Plaza are:
- European DX Foundation – EUDXF
- Swiss DX Foundation – SDXF
- Mediterraneo DX Club – MDXC
- Islands on the Air Ltd – IOTA
- Clipperton DX Club – CDXC
- EI DX Group
The idea behind DX-Plaza is to facilitate discussions among all those interested in DXing, and also have a dialogue between the groups. We believe that this initiative will be successful, in which case we intend to keep DX-Plaza in place for years to come, perhaps with more groups joining in.
We look forward to welcoming many visitors and having interesting exchanges.
The EUDXF can look back on a succesfull Hamradio in Friedrichshafen. Many visited our beautiful stand, and we were able to welcome 12 new members and 2 Life-Members as members of our foundation. The EUDXF dinner on Saturday evening was well attended with 48 visitors.
A special THANK YOU to Jan DJ5AN-PA1TT for organizing these 2 events.
The board and officers of the EUDXF for some time have a Whatsapp group that is frequently used for sharing “HOT” DX information. Since we think that the power of such a group is is in the number of members the idea came up to start an EUDXF Whatsapp group open to all members of the EUDXF. That has already happened and on the website is a form what you can use to sign up for this group. (you can find the form in the right sidebar)
The language within the group will mainly be English but it is to be expected that there will also be quick exchange of information in other european languages 😉
Our webmaster Alex PA1AW will manage the group.
