Participate in the group life.

In a few weeks, despite the poor propagation conditions, we should have short skip conditions again, one of the most fun things on the radio…Great signals, short to very short distances, the opportunity to meet old friends on the air etc etc.

This is the perfect time to prepare and organize DX activations such as IOTA, IWI, LOTA, COTA, MOTA, SOTA, WFF, Clubstations (3 ops minimum including YL and kids) …
There are many things to do!

The HQ is waiting for your opinion to know if the majority of the members accept that the list of the IR members is sent to be integrated in the program of the contest.
In this case the registration of each member is not mandatory.
Only the HQ can provide this list.
The required data are the following:
Prefix – Call sign – First name of the operator.
No address or other data is required.
You can answer this survey

This year again, we wish the participation of the greatest number, your good will and your implication!
The Covid 19 is not what will make our passion disappear.
This message is not just for Europeans but for all members worldwide.

We know that making radio is a hobby and that 27 years ago we were younger, maybe not all with a family, children, a job and that today it is a little more difficult to take his equipment install it in the car, or transporting it for an expedition.

Maybe you have the impression that you have reached the end of what you can bring to the group, but it is not true, we can all bring something and at any time we can and at any time of the year.

The HQ can handle confirming your contacts via QSL or E-qsl, but we need members on the field, members who proudly want to move the group forward, organize activations, promote the group on the internet, etc.

The IRDX group will soon be 30 years old and all of us are happy to have active members on the air and as much as possible.

So if you want the group to still be around in 20 or 30 years it is every year that you can show that you are proud to be a part of it.

The HQ will always be ready to support and promote your activities on the air.
