Hello DXers -
The United States Islands Awards Program is similar to the IOTA program except the target islands are all in the 50 States and U.S. territories. See for more details. A possible CDXA anniversary activity is to activate some of the many islands in North and South Carolina that have never been activated. Tomorrow, Thursday, morning Paul, W3GQ, and Dick, W3OA, will be conducting a trial run to see how such an activation might go.
Callsign: We will use the Club callsign, W4DXA.
Frequencies: We will be calling CQ on 40 or 20 meters, SSB.
On 40 we will start at 7.250 and move up until we find a clear frequency.
On 20 we will start at 14.250 and move up until we find a clear frequency.
Time: We will start at 1400Z (10:00 AM local) and plan to operate for 3 hours or until our battery goes flat

Our buddy Ken Boyd, K4DXA/sk always wanted to go on a DXpedition. He had discussed this many times with Lou N2TU, Bill W4GRW and others.
When helping with the K4DXA estate, Bill W4GRW, found Ken's Khaki CDXA baseball cap, with several pins on it like his ARRL Life Member and 40 year ARRL members pin attached.
Bill & Lou had the idea of letting Ken have his wish granted and Lou took Ken's CDXA Baseball cap to Palmyra Atoll for the K5P DXpedition.
Here is a photo of CDXA Members Lou N2TU & Dick W3OA, with Ken's Cap, proudly mounted in a place of honor in the Palmyra yacht club bar.
Many of Ken's friends, do not think it is any coincidence, that Ken's beloved Clemson Tigers, and Carolina Panthers have had historic football seasons this year, with maybe the help of their #1 fan.
