The Finnish DX Association wishes you all good DX for 2017.
We also have the pleasure of inviting all DXers and shortwave
listeners to join the jubileum European DX Conference to be held in
Tampere, Finland on 18-20 August 2017. It is time to celebrate, as
this year is Finland's centennial and The European DX Council will
have its 50th anniversary. The meeting will be organized by The
Finnish DX Association (soon to be 60 years) and Tampereen
DX-Kuuntelijat (local DX club celebrating its 50th anniversary).
We will follow our tradition of successful EDXC conferences held in
Finland in 1971, 1987, 1992, 2002 and 2008. So it will be three days
of lots of program, lots of events and lots of fun.
We plan to open the website of this conference during January. The
website will be set to be a part of the FDXA website www.sdxl.fi and
when the conference site is open, a link "EDXC Conference 2017" will
be found on the main page.
on Sunday afternoon 20th of August. This time of summer is not anymore
high-season in Finland, so if you like, you should be able to book
extra nights pretty easily and with reasonable prices.
Also a post-conference tour is planned. This would last a few days and
the target would be Finnish Lapland including visits to the well-known
LEM and AIH DX sites and also possibly including a visit to Nordkapp
(the northernmost point of the European continent). If you are
interested in joining this tour, please don't make any flight bookings
The conference organizing committee has been set. The committee
chairman is Risto Vähäkainu. You are welcome to address your special
questions to rv at sdxl dot org.
Hoping to see many many of you in Tampere next summer!
