Formation of Carolina DX Foundation
The Carolina DX Association (CDXA) is pleased to announce, effective immediately,
the formation of the Carolina DX Foundation, a non-profit organization under
the rules of the Internal Revenue Service Section 501(c)(3).
The purpose of the CDXF is to support amateur radio DXpeditions through
Specifically, benefits of DXpedition support by the
CDXF include the furtherance of scientific research exploring electromagnetic
wave propagation in the high frequency domain, and education through public
presentations by DXpeditions supported by the CDXF.
Donations to the CDXF are accepted from individuals and organizations,
and are tax deductible per IRS rules and regulations.
The CDXF is a separate, and separately managed, entity from the CDXA.
The Officers of the CDXF will be elected on a yearly basis, in December,
by all those who have donated to the CDXF in the preceding twelve months.
Initially the Officers are: President, Hal Bouton, N4QT; Vice President,
Bill Fisher, W4GRW; and Secretary-Treasurer, Cliff Wagoner, W3ZL.
The Officers will make all final decisions regarding distribution of DXpedition donations.
The foundation of the CDXF stems from Frank Dowd, K4BVQ, generously
donating his radio collection to the CDXA several years ago, netting the
CDXA over $15,000 for DXpedition donations. Hal Bouton, President of CDXF,
says “Without Frank’s generosity, the CDXF would not be possible.
We are excited about building on this foundation and adding to it to help
fund important DXpeditions into the future.”
