The vice-presidents of IR-DX Group elected a new president last weekend and agreed to appoint Jimmy 13IR011 ( mail : firstname.lastname@example.org ).
We think he is the person to get the IR-DX Group right on track again and we will be more co-operating as a team to assist him in this hard job.
If you have not been in contact with our group for a long time, please contact us : email@example.com .
We are still searching for a lot of members who were active in the past and like to update our records.
After a long internal discussion about what we need to do with it, the HQ team decided to dismiss our current IR-DX President from his function.
We will not explain all, as we do not like to throw with mud, but main reason for this difficult decision is the lack of good communication between the President and the HQ members for a long time already.
To keep the group alive, we needed to take this drastic step and we will continue to run the IR-DX Group as a team and not just by one person who is controlling everything.

After a brief closed election round in the IR-DX HQ Team, we can welcome our now long-time and dedicated IR-DX member 47IR042 Ken, to joining the IR-DX Group’s team of Vice Presidents.
The IR-DX HQ team will be working on new ideas for the future, about which more later.
It is now official, Felipe 32IR001 joins the HQ, he will represent the HQ in South America.
Felipe is world renowned as an outstanding operator and has already proven his dedication and pride in being an IR member for many years.
Since a few years the IRDX group’s management team has been reduced.
Currently the management team is composed of 3 people:
13IR102 Lars Responsible for the allocation of special callsigns on DXCCs and proofs validation.
14IR001 Didier President of the IRDX group.
19IR04 Rob Director Holland, responsible for the allocation of IOTA special call-signs and Webmaster of the website.
The European continent is therefore finally the one that is most represented.
To improve the group’s visibility on a global scale, we need to add several (non-European) people to join the management team,
Of course they will have to be active members on the air and they must be 100% IR of course.
The language barrier is a difficulty for all of us, fortunately thanks to tools on the internet it is possible to solve this problem and this should not worry the candidates.
Please contact Didier 14IR001 to submit your candidate proposal.
