The EIDX Group was formed in early 2016 with an aim of bringing Ireland's DXers together to form an Irish DXpedition team and to promote DX activity in Ireland. For our 1st DXpedition, we brought you 9N7EI, operating from high above in the Himalayas and netting over 30,000 QSOs! Then, in March 2018 we brought you our 7Q7EI adventure operating from the shores of Lake Malawi logging over 38,000 QSOs. This year saw yet another DXpedition as we operated from Togo as 5V7EI throughout March and netted over 50,000 QSOs!! Plans are already underway for yet another exciting DX location for 2020 - stay tuned!
DX Féile 2018 was the last activity as part of our Irish Islands IOTA Tour 2018 programme,where we activated all Irish IOTA Groups as well as logging over 33,000 QSOs!
'Féile', is a word taken from the Irish language (Gaelic) and translates into English as 'Festival'. So basically, we are holding a 'DX Festival' this coming September but with an IOTA twist!
The chosen venue for this 'festival' is quite exciting as it is actually on Inis Mór, Aran Islands (EU-006). To mark this occasion, 2 x stations will be QRV for the weekend where attendees will be able to operate the EJ1D callsign for as much or as little as they like.
We have chosen an amazing line up of DX Related talks presented by some of the World's finest DXpeditioners/DXers. (see the 'Programme' page for full line-up). Add this with the friendly Irish atmosphere and Céad Míle Fáilte (One hundred million welcomes) will make for a great DX filled weekend for sure.
Accommodation is scarce on the island and therefore numbers are limited. Due to previous year's success, we expect this to sell out real fast.
