DX e Contest

2012 is the 75th anniversary of the ARRL’s DXCC Award. The world’s preeminent DXing award continues to be DXCC, so reaching the “Diamond milestone” is an event that we all want to celebrate. Going back to the roots of the award, and specifically reading the 1937 DXCC List (January 1937 QST, pages 52-53) to learn what countries were counted at the onset led us to create the Diamond DXCC Challenge.

 

Per celebrare il 75°Anniversario del DXCC Award l’ARRL ha creato il “Diamond DXCC Challenge” che inizierà il 1 Gennaio e terminerà il 31 Dicembre 2012. La lista dei “paesi” da collegare si basa sull’elenco di 231 luoghi, che era in origine l’elenco delle entità  accreditate per il diploma nel 1937, quando appunto cominciò l’avventura del DXCC.

L’idea è quella di riuscire a lavorare, al giorno d’oggi, l’originale lista di quelle entità di accredito che comprendeva non solo  Country in senso tradizionale ma anche città, gruppi d’isole dello IOTA e varie entità sub-politiche collocate all’interno dei Country stessi.

I dettagli completi di questo Challenge li potete trovare in queste pagine web:

A mio modesto avviso questa è un’occasione che i DXers nostrani non dovrebbero farsi sfuggire perchè è una nuova sfida per la loro passione e per immergersi in un’atmosfera DX di altri tempi che ha un fascino ammaliante, potendo cacciare luoghi che ora costituiscono solo memoria storica del DXCC, ma che vengono riproposti per stimolare l’interesse a lavorarli così come accadde 75 anni fa.
