We are now at our new monthly meeting place, the Granite Reef Senior Center, 1700 N Granite Reef Rd, Scottsdale. The next meeting will be on Thursday night, February 6th, starting at 7:00 pm. Our social hour starts at 6:30 pm.
The February meeting will feature a presentation by Larry Loen, WO7R, on “What the CQ Marathon Taught Me about DXing.” Larry is an Honor Roll DXer who won the Zone 3 Mixed Marathon in 2018 and may win North America with his 2019 digital only Marathon results.
While the CQ DX Marathon is interesting in its own right, it is perhaps even more interesting as a source of information about DXing – even if you never turn in a score! In operation since 2006, there is now an extensive database of scores that, with a little imagination, will reveal many truths about DX and DXing and what you can do from your own station. In particular, it shows how you can run up a very good DXing score in any year despite “no sunspots.” Marathoners do. Come hear all about it.
Members should note that dues for 2020 are now due. You can mail a check to our treasurer, Mike Wright, N7MW (good on QRZ.com) or email him at n7mw [at] aol.com to arrange payment via PayPal. Dues remain the same at $25 per person, plus $12.50 more for each additional family member residing at the same address.
