Ladies and Gentlemen,

I hope you are all actively pursuing DX in this new 2023 calendar year. The propagation early in Cycle 25 continues to be fantastic.

Your DX Marathon operational team have completed all the final 2022 results that will be published in the June issue of CQ Magazine in less than a month. The article will contain all the winner of plaques and certificates as desribed in detail on our brand new website, www.dxmarathon.com. Your operating group which includes me and four other fellows are now discussing the 2024 rules clarifications along with some added categories. The new rules will be published in the November issue of CQ Magazine.

Lastly, I have personally conducted over 40 zoom meetings with clubs mostly within the US explaining how exciting this program can be especially at time like today when we have a combination of FT8 technology and Cycle 25. It is allowing so many hams to participate in the excitement of chasing DX.

If you are part of a club and wish to have a guest speaker, please email me at wc3w@dxmarathon.com and request a zoom meeting. I promise you will not regret it!

Please enjoy the program this year and tell all your ham buddies to “just do it.”
