NCDXF Press Release

In April 2021, NCDXF announced the creation of an award – “The DXcellence Award”. To be awarded to the outstanding DXpedition of the last twelve month, which received funding form NCDXF. The award is intended to recognize excellent in a DXpedition, exemplified by practices, ethics, management, transparency, impact upon the DXing community, and lastly exhibited FUN!

The winner of the award is determined by the NCDXF Board of Directors. The board considers several factors, including performance, complexity of the DXpedition, impact on Clublog most wanted ranking. Especially important are activities associated with humanitarian and education.

On celebration of our 50th year of operation, NCDXF is proud to award our first NCDXF DXcellence Award to the S9OK Sao Tome DXpedition. Their team did a terrific job and after contact with Zorro, JH1AJT, planned a visit to the local schools. Useful gifts were given to the children for the classrooms and the children’s response was joy and happiness.

The NCDXF looks forward to other DXpeditions this year that will qualify for the next award in 2023. We are hopeful that many DXpeditions will be funded by NCDXF and qualify for this award. Congratulations to S90K on the first award!

The mission of NCDXF is to provide necessary financial support for well-organized DXpeditions to desirable DXCC entities and to support advances in DXpeditioning skills, technology, and infrastructure. Those funds come from the contributions of our supporters in the DX community.
