11M & PMR Field day 2021

The first part of the 11m & PMR field day takes place this weekend.
Here is the list of participants:
https://radiofieldday.jimdofree.com/fd-team-engaged/
You can find IR members in frequency with the following callsigns:
14IR/FD033 with 14IR102 Mickael
14IR/FD079 with 14IR181 Marc

Surprising not to have more activity from the members but once again thanks to these two French members who are once again the most active.

Since a few weeks the IRDX group’s management team has been reduced, in a few months 4 vice presidents have now decided to use a different call sign than the one the IRDX group has assigned to them and have chosen to give up their position as vice president.

Currently the management team is composed of 4 people:

13IR102 Lars Responsible for the allocation of special callsigns on DXCCs and proofs validation.
14IR001 Didier President of the IRDX group.
15IR076 Chris Director for Switzerland and Liechtenstein.
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.
