favorite hobby and eating pizza. The Business Meeting immediately followed where the 2024 officers

were elected: Tom Lee K8AZ, President; Tim Duffy K3LR, Vice-President, and Tim Jellison W3YQ,

Treasurer. Amy Leggiero N8AMY, will remain the Website Manager.

2023 YDXA Special Event – July 29 at K3LR

The Dave Kalter Memorial Youth DX Adventure is proud to announce a 2023 Special Event as W3Y on July 29, 2023. The K3LR Contest Group is hosting us at their station for this event. 

This is the first time that this event will be hosted in the USA. As K3LR is one of the largest stations in the world we are confident that this adventure will be truly special for the David Kalter kids and their parents. 

The trip is being sponsored by the Dayton Amateur Radio Association. 

Look for us on July 29 as we look forward to a great number of QSO’s from around the world. The team is currently being formed and more information will be available soon. We are anticipating a team of 4 youth operators.
