Central Arizona DX Association
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).

Due to the current situation with COVID-19, the August meeting will be held virtually using ZOOM. Meeting invitations will be sent to members via Groups.io and Slack a few days before the meeting. For anyone else who wants to attend, send an email to email@example.com. The next meeting will be Thursday night, August 6th, 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 August program will be “A50BOC: Bhutan, The Land of the Thunder Dragon” by Adrian Ciuperca, KO8SCA. Adrian has been licensed since 1990, when he was still in high school, as YO8SCA. After finishing his university studies in computer science, he moved to the United States where he obtained the vanity call KO8SCA. He currently lives in New York City where he works as an IT consultant. Adrian has taken part in DXpeditions to destinations including A5, ZK3, V8, TX0M/TX0A, 6O, 9M0, FJ, FM, J3, J8, VK9C, VK9X, VP5, VP9, and Z2. Recently he has been a guest operator at 4U1UN and HV0A.
At the July meeting, Dave, N4QS, presented "Remote Ham Radio from the Bluegrass State". This was an outstanding summary of Dave’s journey over the past four years in carefully designing and building a remote station in Kentucky. Dave explained how he designed the station around his DXCC Challenge goal to join the “3,000 Club”. His results using the new antenna farm demonstrated the effectiveness of his efforts to date. You can see the video of Dave’s program on YouTube at https://youtu.be/Lxt_qtGnNvQ.
We were deeply saddened to learn that one of our long-time members, Dean Norris, K7NO, became a Silent Key in July. Dean was a very active DXer and regular club meeting attendee for many, many years. We will miss him.
See you on ZOOM for the July meeting.
