DXing from Minnesota . . . Land of 10,000 Lakes


The mission of the TCDXA is to support DXing and major DXpeditions by providing funding. 
Annual contributions (dues) from members is the major source for the funding.

A funding request from the organizers of a planned DXpedition should be directed to the
DX Grant Manager, Mike Cizek, WØVTT, He and the TCDXA Board of
Directors will judge how well the DXpedition plans meet key considerations (see below).

If the Board of Directors deems the DXpedition to be worthy of support,
a recommended funding amount is presented to the membership for a vote. 
The Donation Manager will communicate the outcome of the vote to the requestor. 
If approved, the TCDXA treasurer will process the funding.

Key considerations for a DXpedition funding request:

  • DXpeditiion destination
  • Ranking on Most Wanted Survey
  • Most Wanted ranking by TCDXA members
  • Logistics and transportation costs
