  • SDXA DX NET
    ON 3RD THURSDAYS
    ON OUR 2-METER FM REPEATER

    NEXT: AUGUST 21 – 7 PM

    Randy W7TJ started a DX net to increase our repeater usage and spread the word on where the DX is. It is on the 3rd Thursday of each month on our 147.16 MHz repeater (tone specifications are on the right side of this page).


  • 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

    2. ANNOUNCED DX OPERATIONS
    3. DX SUMMIT BAND SPOTS
    4. I2MQP DX NEWS


  • MEMBERSHIP CHAIRPERSON WANTED

    Main duties: solicit new members, entice old members to rejoin, send out email notices at the beginning of the year for renewals, and contact late paying members who have not paid. Contact President Chris Pritchard WX7B.


  • 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 who differs from you?
    Here is a link to the entities in alphabetical order. 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.

  • MEMBERSHIP LIST ACCESS

    The listing of active members, with their emails, addresses, and phone numbers, has been withdrawn from this site for privacy concerns. Any active member can request a copy for themselves by email by contacting our Secretary Jay WA0WWW. We still have a list of members and a link to their QRZ.com sites under Membership located below the mountain logo on the homepage.
