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 ongoing situation with COVID-19, the September 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. The next meeting will be Thursday night, September 3rd, 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 September program will be "The Joy of Being a Double-Multiplier: Operating the CQWW CW Contest from Ascension Island - ZD8" by Alan Higbie, K0AV. Alan lives in Colorado Springs where he is active in CW contests. Throughout his entire ham career, he has had the good fortune to have excellent and patient mentors. Raised in the San Francisco Bay Area licensed as WA6PMK, he was one of the first members of the Northern California Contest Club (NCCC). He operated for 3 years from West Berlin as DL4QQ. He later lived in Anchorage for 6 years as AL7H, and since returning to the lower 48, he has been in Colorado as K0AV.
At the August meeting, Adrian, KO8SCA, presented “A50BOC: Bhutan, The Land of the Thunder Dragon”. Adrian had the opportunity to participate in an expedition to Bhutan with a small group led by Zorro, JH1AJT. Zorro has led many DXpeditions as part of his humanitarian efforts with the Foundation for Global Children (FGC) including several past trips to Bhutan. The group stayed at and operated from Royal Thimpu College surrounded by the sky-high mountains that make Bhutan so challenging to contact by radio. You can see the video of Adrian’s program on YouTube at https://youtu.be/vVK3JJ4rnvU.
See you on ZOOM for the July meeting.
