The Mega DXpeditions Honor Roll

A piece of history of DXing. Our GDXF member Jari, OH2BU, began in the 90's to keep a list of DXpeditions which had achieved more than 30,000 QSOs - the Mega DXpeditions Honor Roll. At that time there were some 40 DXpeditions in this list. Meanwhile there are more than 220 DXpeditions listed. Bernd, DF3CB, continued to maintain the Mega DXpeditions list in the past years and put it into a database. The Mega DXpeditions Honor Roll is now being hosted on the web site of the GDXF.
