The European DX Foundation is the first and only all European Foundation created to support DX activities. Their long term goal is to support DXers and expeditions (e.g. financial support, printing of QSL-cards) to allow the DX-community in Europe a fair share in their work. We also supply equipment to those in rare countries who cannot afford their own. This award celebrates the 30th anniversary of the European DX Foundation and the EUDXF introduces the "EUDXF 30" award.
This award can be obtained by making connections with the various 30EUDXF station active from a number of countries until the end of the year 2016.
The award is available in 4 different classes:
Bronze: 10 QSO’s with at least 3 different countries
Silver: 15 QSO’s with at least 5 different stations
Gold: 20 QSO’s with at least 8 different stations
Platinum: 30 QSO’s with all 12 different stations (At least one QSO should be made with every 30EUDXF station activated in 2016.)
Working the same station on the same band in the same mode is considered a duplicate QSO and will not count for the award. Any other combination counts as a valid QSO.
The award will be available for free in an electronic form. A printed award will be made available against cost of 10 Euro/Dollar.
Valid stations for the award: (as of 17 October) are DL30EUF – HA30EUDXF – OE30EUDXF – PA30EUDXF – PB30EUDXF – PC30EUDXF – PD30EUDXF – PE30EUDXF – PF30EUDXF – PG30EUDXF – PH30EUDXF – PI30EUDXF
