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. As in the last year 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.

Mega DXpeditions Honor Roll

By far the most visited page of the GDXF is the Mega DXpeditions Honor Roll: After two years of Covid19-related world-wide travel restrictions more and more DXpeditons take place again. It were 18 Mega DXpeditions in 2022 with at least 30,000 QSOs and altogether almost 1.2 million QSOs. 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 and MSHV).
