VK0EK – March 6 – April 20, 2016

Our very good friend and world class DX-er, Graham, VK6RO, alerted us to a beautiful Australian Heard Island commemorative:

I’m not a stamp collector – but I do want to order this first day cover set.

Here is the link to the PDF for the “full story”:


Thanks very much Graham – these are beautiful!

SWODXA, the Southwest Ohio DX Association held their annual DX Dinner, which is an associated event, coinciding with Dayton Hamvention.

At the dinner, NC1L, Bill Moore (SK) was inducted into the CQ DX Hall of Fame as was Jerry, WB9Z.

Then the big announcement was made and the VK0EK Team was very happy and want to thank SWODXA and all of our sponsors, and the entire DX Community for helping make VK0EK Happen!

Bob, KK6EK will present the Sunday breakfast Keynote at Visalia this weekend, and his talk is “The Future of DXpeditioning and DXing”. A must see.
Radio Team Leader, Dave, K3EL will also attend – so please look him up.

I’m so surprised – almost shocked – that VK0EK is on the cover of the 2016 DXCC Yearbook. We were the cover award winners for the ARRL Yearly DX Issue of QST (my childhood dream magazine), and took over DX Magazine’s January / February issue – including the cover of Carl’s fabulous magazine – I honestly don’t know what is left or what to expect.

What an honor – and man am I happy.
