CQ DX Marathon

Welcome to the Annual

DX Marathon

Starting January 1 of each year and running until the end of December, the DX Marathon is the perfect answer for the DX-er who needs that extra incentive to get on the air every day!

Simply work as many countries and CQ Zones as you can in each calendar year, regardless of the band or mode. Each country and zone counts only once, so you can concentrate on working new ones, rather than working the same ones on multiple bands and modes. Find more information in the rules.

Check our constantly updated Resources to improve your 2024 score.

You can find information on how to submit, a sample scoresheet, and useful applications in our Software Tools page.

Many awards are given for the top overall scores in four classes, plus top scores in modes, bands, US call areas, and more! Details of the extensive award list are available here.

2023 Results

The final results of the 2023 DX Marathon Program are now available! Plaques and certificates for winners will be distributed on or before April 15, 2024, as well as emails to every participant showing the 2023 claimed scores and specific deducts resulting from errors. Good luck in the 2024 program.
