We hope you are all doing well, and using this time of limited mobility to get on the air to make progress toward your DXing goals. As a Board we are concerned for everyone's health and safety, and as a result have decided to cancel our annual end-of-summer picnic this year. Stay tuned for information on club plans for upcoming online meetings & topics.
A core purpose of a DX club is to assist with making DX happen. We are a relatively small club, but our influence is known in the worldwide DX community by way of our members who are on the DXCC Honor Roll, earned 5(+) band DXCC and WAZ awards, participate in contests, and present at global conferences. UDXA also has a long history of providing financial support for DXpeditions as well. As we are painfully aware, the global pandemic has resulted in numerous cancellations of DXpeditions which were planned for this year. Nevertheless, as activating rare entities requires long-range planning, the Board has decided to support the JX0X expedition to Jan Mayen island which is scheduled for September of next year.
We are asking club membership to contribute toward support of JX0X by way of matching donations up to $150 (for a total of $300) toward this rare DXCC activation. Please send your donations via PayPal to UDXASSOCIATION@GMAIL.COM and select "sending to a friend" when prompted. You may also send a check to the Utah DX Association per the Contact Us button on our www.UDXA.org web site.
Thank you & 73,
John Mitton (KK7L)
