Message from the President
Happy New Year to the Utah DX Association!
It's my pleasure to take on the responsibility this year as your club President, and am looking forward to a great year of close collaboration, enlightening meetings, and of course the challenge of DXing and contesting activities on-air.
As I have gotten to know many of you it is clear that a common thread amongst our experiences is often that of getting re-acquainted with HF operating, contesting and DXing after a long spell of inactivity. I consider my story as somewhat typical: getting licensed during high school in the 70's only to uncover a stack of DX QSL cards in a box 30 years later to remind me of the fun HF operating can be. Three cheers to the UDXA in welcoming me back into the hobby in 2015 by way of inspiring presentations, technical help, and club operations at field day & 7QP. Thinks in no small part to you all at the UDXA I went from zero to DXCC on the wall in 152 days and now have over 230 DXCC confirmed. It's been a great ride.
We will hold our first Board meeting call-in for the year next Wednesday, January 9th, from 7:00 pm. All are welcome to listen in and provide commentary when prompted.
Dial-in Number: 1-302-202-1108

Our next meeting will be on January 16th in Murray from 7:00 pm. It will be another great presentation by Mark Richardson W7HPW. See you all there.
John Mitton (KK7L)
