The Delta DX Association

DXing is one aspect of the hobby of amateur ("Ham") radio. DX is an abbreviation for "distance" and is used as both a noun (DX, DXer) and a verb (DXing) to refer to the pursuit of radio contacts, often under extremely difficult conditions, with distant stations all over the Earth (and beyond, as some are now doing!). The enthusiasm with which DXers pursue their hobby is exemplified by the frequent DXpeditions (see list below) that are mounted by members of the Ham radio community - in which one or more operators venture forth to a near or distant corner of the globe that may be uninhabited, lacking Ham radio activity, or just an interesting place to go - for the primary purpose of providing radio contacts with that spot! Some of these are true expeditions in the classical sense, in which the participants must carry their own equipment, shelters, generators, and supplies at great personal cost and risk.
