DX  -  Awards

Dx The Gator Amateur Radio Club is known all over the world. DX=long distance an we have ample mileage on our heals. The W4DFU station was established in 1934 and has connected with hams in over 225 other countries. Look for a compilation of awards, cards, and stories from afar on this page.  Many of our alumni members are now DX and live far away...we've had Admundsen-Scott Gators at the South Pole, in Antarctica, Indonesia, India, Finland...and many more.  Look through our logbook archives to see some of the great DX worked from W4DFU!
Awards The Gator Amateur Radio Club is known all over the world. Through the years we have earned many awards for our operations and community service.  We have posted them here for your viewing pleasure!
