SDXA WINS ARRL GAVEL FOR 2005 ARRL INTERNATIONAL DX CONTESTS

In the Club competition in the ARRL International DX Contest (combining scores in cw and phone portions), our SDXA won FIRST PLACE in the Local Club Category. Our prize was an official ARRL contest gavel which was given to Lamar WA7LT for his great contribution to the total score.

Our total combined cw and phone score was 2,432,637 points with 5 entries, beating out the Mt. Frank Contesters and Northeast Wisconsin DX Association. Congratulations to all who participated, Lamar for his multi-single hospitality, and Lamar and Gary for their high score contributions. Without the scores from both stations, we would have not taken first! A write up on our club win is on page 102 and 104 of the September, 2005 QST article.

Individual member results for the two contests can be found by clicking CW or PHONE.
