Please remember: i only need your claimed score (and ops in a multi-op), just the number. please don’t have the claimed score only in an attached file. if you want to do a quick copy paste of the band/mode/points/multiplier table into the email that would be fine, it is fun to see how everyone did on different bands.

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.
