Our association has been created to gather dx'ers of the eastern part of France. It became official after our second annual convention, in April 12th 1997. The purpose of our association is to create a rapprochement between any ham radio operator interested in DX'ing in our area. This means on H.F., Satelite or V.H.F. Another goal is to motivate dx'ers to take part in various DX activities of the gang around just as contests, expeditions, ham-ventions and so on... At this time, we do not sponsor any other DX activities than ours. As a new dx team, we would like first to have a good setup ! Our annual convention is the second week end of April in LYON.
Here are the LDXG managers :
PRESIDENT : F5NOD SECRETARY : F6JJX TREASURER : F5PXT
