CLUB 30 YEAR DX CHALLENGE – Starts Tuesday 1st April

Challenge Starts at 00:00 on the 1st Apr 2014 and runs for 30 weeks ending at 23:59 on the 27th October 2014.

The club was formed in 1984 so it is 30 years old this year therefore to mark the 30th anniversary another challenge has been set around the 30 figure i.e. Number of QSO’s per entry 30, Number of Countries per entry 30, etc, etc.

There were a few ideas submitted so many thanks for each and every one of them they were greatly appreciated. The idea that I thought offers the greatest challenge is the one to contact 30 different countries per entry on a single band.

You can submit as many entries as you wish over the designated time period

Full instructions and all the documents that are required to submit your entries can be found on the club’s website under the Download Section,


Why not combine our Activity Day events along with this it will help add an aim to the days.

I hope you will all make a huge effort to help celebrate our Anniversary.

Good Luck
