CADXA is the largest ham radio DX club in Arizona with over 100 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).

CADXA Members, Visitors, and Online Guests -

WELCOME to the Central Arizona DX Association (CADXA) website! We appreciate your visit and invite you to join us for our meetings.


The CADXA Annual BBQ Picnic was held this past Saturday, May 20th, at Kiwanis Park in Tempe.

Thirty-one CADXA Members plus a guest or two along with spouses and family members (49 total) were in attendance.  As planned, this was a great return to the annual BBQ - everyone had loads of fun just enjoying each other and getting caught-up with the past 3 or 4 years' plus really great BBQ catered by Waldo's BBQ in Mesa.

Door prizes were donated by ​The DX Store, Bob Heil at Heil Sound, the ARRL and Array Solutions – we really appreciate their ongoing support of CADXA.  Photos are being uploaded to the CADXA website and the logs from the K7UGA mini-special event station have been uploaded to LoTW; about 40 very leisurely contacts were made on SSB and FT-8.

A big 'THANK YOU' to the BBQ Picnic Committee for their diligent work and to all could attend, and we look forward to 'BBQ 2024'.

Tnx es 73.

John, N7NWL
