DDXG 2012 Year in review

RTTY Roundup

Many members of the club participated in the ARRL RTTY Roundup contest in January.  The combined club score was well over 600,000 points.  Thanks to everyone that participated.

Tangier

Our Tangier operation this year was different than what we have done in the past.  We only operated a single station and let club members and guests operate under their own call sign if they chose to.  We had a great time and made several hundred QSOs over the weekend.  W4BNO has uploaded some pictures of the weekend to flickr.

DXCC

Several club members got DXCC awards this year.  Congratulations to these folks for the work they put into getting their awards.
