    Press release:
    SWODXA Announces the DX Mentor Recognition Program
    The Southwest Ohio DX Association (SWODXA) in conjunction with ICOM® America, Inc. is announcing a program to recognize and reward amateur radio operators who have played a key role in helping other amateur radio operators achieve DXCC. The purpose of this program is not to bring recognition to those that achieve DXCC but rather to recognize those amateurs that assist others in achieving their first 100 confirmed entities.
    There is an application form and a judging committee staffed by SWODXA representatives and a representative from both the NCDXF and INDEXA. Those amateurs receiving the mentoring must be under 30 years of age during the calendar year for the award. The intent of targeting this audience is to attract and retain those amateurs that are most likely to remain engaged in the hobby after achieving DXCC.
    SWODXA is uniquely positioned to bestow this award at the annual SWODXA DX Dinner®. The DX Dinner, held annually in conjunction with the Dayton Hamvention®, is arguably the largest gathering of active DXers in the world. We present the DXpedition of the Year Award®, the DXpeditioner of the Year Award, when applicable, and host the DX Forum there. CQ Magazine announces their CQ DX Hall of Fame inductees at the DX dinner as well.
    As a technology leader in our hobby, there is no better partner to promote and celebrate this award than ICOM. Ray, N9JA, has been a constant promoter of ham radio, even coining the phrase “For the Love of Ham Radio”. ICOM has selflessly supported amateur radio over the years and is taking this opportunity to promote the mentors of DX. Thanks to ICOM for their support!

    Greetings! I am Bill, AJ8B, the President of the Southwest Ohio DX Association. We are working with Icom to recognize hams who have been working with young DXers to move up the DXCC ladder.

    I have attached a press release that describes the program. The person who wins the recognition for working with young DXers will received an Icom IC-7300 and be recognized at the DX Dinner during Hamvention weekend by Icom.

    Would you please pass the attached press release on to your members? There is no benefit to SWODXA other than working with Icom to find those DXers working with young hams.

    If you have any questions, please email me at AJ8B@arrl.net

    Thank You in advance for your support

    Press Release

    SWODXA DX DINNER® ANNOUNCEMENT

    January 19th, 2024

    SouthWest Ohio DX Association

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

    The SouthWest Ohio DX Association (SWODXA) is pleased to announce that we will again sponsor the DX Dinner, held in conjunction with the 2024 Dayton Hamvention®. This, our 39th annual dinner, will be Friday, May 17th, 2024, at The Marriott at the University of Dayton, 1414 S. Patterson Blvd., Dayton, OH 45409.

    We will have another fantastic array of great prizes at the dinner and the Forum on Saturday!

    There will be a cash bar starting at 5:30 p.m., with dinner served at 7:00. Following the event, there will be a separate room and cash bar available for more fellowship. This is an excellent opportunity to meet new hams and to renew old acquaintances as well as to learn about past DXpeditions and those in the planning stages.

    The Marriott is very accommodating to a group our size. The dining room is very large and located on the ground floor so there are no steps and there is ample free, on-site parking.

    This dinner is always well attended by some of the most avid DXers in the world. Previous dinners had over 400 attendees! As in the past, there will be some major door prizes, and there is always great anticipation as to who will be named the “DXpedition of the Year®” as well as who will be inducted in to the CQ DX Hall of Fame.

    The keynote speaker will be Dave Anderson, K4SV.

    Tickets can be purchased on the SWODXA Events website.

    Program details and a list of the prizes will be on the website as they become available, and updates will be sent out regularly via X. Follow us on X - @SWODXA
