CADXA is the largest ham radio DX club in Arizona with over 140 members, many of whom are on the ARRL's DXCC Honor Roll.  We have several members who have traveled to distant places to put "rare" countries on the air.  We encourage any ham interested in DXing to join our club and learn about the many aspects of talking to hams around the globe who share this amazing hobby with us.  Founded in 1974, we are an ARRL-affiliated club and a member club of the Amateur Radio Council of Arizona (ARCA).

President's Message

Due to the ongoing situation with COVID-19, the March meeting again will be held virtually using Zoom.  The meeting will be Thursday night, March 4th, starting at 7:00 pm.  You can begin checking in at 6:30 pm and visit informally with other club members on Zoom until the meeting starts.  Please turn off your computer camera and microphone when the meeting starts.  The link to the Zoom meeting will be sent to all members just prior to the meeting. Our meetings are open to all. If any of you reading this would like to join via Zoom or would like any other information about CADXA, send me an email: aa4q [at] arrl.net .

Craig, K9CT, will be joining our Zoom meeting and will present to us "Station Tour at K9CT and a Peek at 2021 Enhancements" about his fabulous contest station. Craig will do the presentation live as he is hoping that our members will have some questions as he presents. If you want a preview of that station, see http://www.k9ct.us/ .  Craig was first licensed in 1967 as WN9TXL, then WA9TXL in the same year and became an Extra Class licensee in 1971. He has held the K9CT call sign since 1976.  He has achieved DXCC Mixed, CW, and Phone Honor Rolls.  Craig is a Life Member of ARRL and a member of the Maxim Society, CWops, NIDXA, and A1 Operator Club. He is a Board Member of the NCDXF and Treasurer of CWops. He was the President of the Society of Midwest Contesters 2014-2019 and serves on the ARRL Contest Advisory Committee.

The February program was “ET3AA Ethiopia DXpedition” by Ken Claerboat, K4ZW.  He described trips to Ethiopia and setting up at the Addis Ababa University station with the help of and mentoring several of the students, building and repairing antennas, and even getting new furniture for the ham shack. Ken has allowed us to save his program to YouTube at this link: https://youtu.be/TOUx7nkWHsM

See you on Zoom for the March meeting.
