The GDXF supports DXpeditions - support the GDXF!

German version   German flag

The German DX Foundation (GDXF), founded in 1996, was established to support HF DX activities - on all bands or modes - to rare countries all over the world. This support is realized through financial or personal, instrumental and logistical assistance. We offer our members a wide variety of informations and services, for example the GDXF QSL Service.

Most Wanted in DL

The list of the most wanted DXCC entities in DL was continued this year with the results of the annual DARC DXCC scoreboard 2021. This year, however, we are using a different evaluation method in order to achieve a more realistic ranking of the most wanted areas from a German or Central European point of view.

25 years of GDXF

The GDXF is the owner of the callsign DF0GDX with the aim of increasing awareness through activities on our bands. On the occasion of our foundation 25 years ago, the special call sign DL25GDXF can also be used from May 1st to be activated by our members until July 31, 2021. In addition, the GDXF is issuing an anniversary award for a short time.

Annual general meeting of the GDXF 2020 and minutes

Since HAM Radio 2020 had to be canceled, the annual general meeting of the GDXF took place online this year on Saturday, November 21, 2020 at 10:00 a.m. in a Teams conference. The invitation to the meeting with the agenda items can be found here, the motion to amend the statutes and the minutes of the general meeting (sorry, these documents are only available in German language).

Mega DXpeditions Honor Roll

By far the most visited page of the GDXF is the Mega DXpeditions Honor Roll:

In 2019, similar to previous years, 18 DXpeditions took place, which reached at least 30,000 QSOs. In 2020 only 10 due to Covid19. The continent of Africa has the largest number of Mega DXpeditions. We have seen a very strong increase in digital QSOs compared to CW and SSB since the introduction of FT8 (Fox/Hound).
