activity). [Press Release] On the first day of next September, it will be
40 years since in Havana, a small group of Cuban DXers founded the Grupo
DX de Cuba (GDXC).
For this reason, throughout this month, the hunt for more than sixty
members and aspirants of the group will be the objective of those who
enthusiastically aspire to obtain the certificate "40th Anniversary of
As has already happened in previous celebrations, not only Cuban members
of the group join the valid stations, but there will be also members who
responded to the call from Bulgaria, Bolivia, Ecuador, Hungary, Spain, the
United States, the Canary Islands, Colombia, Japan and Mexico.
Three basic versions of the certificate will be awarded, depending on
the number of valid stations worked, regardless of band or mode. To obtain
the "Gold" seal, it will be necessary to work at least 50 of the valid
stations, for "Silver" 40 and for "Bronze" 30. In addition, in parallel
a general classification will be created with all the contacts that are
made, which may be daily, by band and mode. At the end, those who occupy
the first ten places in this classification will receive a certificate
with the category "Diamond." Finally, a special Certificate will be granted

their request to the electronic address (email@example.com). It must include
all the contacts made with each of the valid stations, organized chrono-
logically and also specifying the date, the time in UTC, the band and the
mode. QSOs made in any band and mode will be valid, in the case of the
2 meter band, contacts made through repeater stations will not be accepted.
We reiterate, daily contacts will be allowed, which will help in the
general classification score to obtain the "Diamante" category.
The member and applicant stations of the DX Group of Cuba that will be
valid for the certificate are the following: CP6CL, EA5B, EA8XNX, HA3JB,
HC1DAZ, HK3TK, HK6DOS, JH1AJT, K7JA, LZ1BY, WB2REM, XE1KK/6E6E, CM2ANA,
