MAKING IT AN 8-BAND EFFORT
It was the January ARRL RTTY Roundup.
Send email to Jay WA0WWW, our SDXA Secretary, with your grand total and, if you were a multi-operation, the names and calls of the participants.
To receive this award, you must work and confirm every ARRL recognized entity (mostly populated countries) in the World, all 340 of them. It’s not a weekend task, but takes many years as many of the rare entities are not populated by any hams (or people) so one must wait for a DXpedition, a group of hams, to go to that entity and operate from it, a very expensive proposition. For instance, Gary’s final (340th) contact was with a French DXpedition to Tromelin Island (FT4TA). Before that, the last DXpedition to that island was in the year 2000. Congratulations to Gary!

SDXA DX NET
ON 3RD THURSDAYS
ON LOCAL 2-METER FM REPEATER
NEXT: FEBRUARY 19 – 7 PM
Randy W7TJ started a DX net to increase our repeater usage to spread the word on where the DX is. The Net is on the 3rd Thursday of each month on the 147.08 MHz repeater (100 Hz PL tone) located on Idaho Mica Peak.
DX NEWS LINKS
Randy W7TJ came up with the idea of listing links to sites where info on DX is found. Here are the first few.
1. DX WORLD.NET
INTERNET ENTITY PRONOUNCER
What is the correct way of pronouncing a DX entity’s name? Do you battle it out at the club meeting with another DXer? Here is a link to the entities. On the site, there is also a audio link to a human voice saying the entity’s name correctly. This authority is the 3rd edition Merriam Webster Geographical Dictionary.
