AA (Australia & Africa) 10 Metre DX Net

[ays_poll id=’2′]

The idea and the forgotten continent

During April 2024, the concept of the AA 10 Metre DX Net emerged with the aim of uniting Australian and African DX stations on a single frequency. This initiative sought to spotlight one of the often-overlooked continents in the DX World, Africa.

The concept aims to cater to operators, whether they have or haven’t worked Africa before, who are seeking to make a contact with a station they have not yet contacted or adding an all time new one (ATNO) to their logbooks.

It’s crucial to remember that Africa comprises 54 distinct countries, even though not all of them have licensed amateur radio operators. It’s vital not to overlook this significant part of the world. While they may not always be actively engaging, they are undoubtedly out there. Instead of relying solely on FT8 and digital modes, let’s take a step back, pick up our PTT, and send out a general CQ call, reaching out specifically towards Africa.
