Reunion EDXC 2017

We also have the pleasure of inviting all DXers and shortwave listeners to join the jubileum
European DX Conference to be held in Tampere, Finland on 18-20 August 2017. It is time to
celebrate, as this year is Finland's centennial and The European DX Council will have its 50th
anniversary. The meeting will be organized by The Finnish DX Association (soon to be 60 years)
and Tampereen DX-Kuuntelijat (local DX club celebrating its 50th anniversary). We will follow our
tradition of successful EDXC conferences held in Finland in 1971, 1987, 1992, 2002 and 2008. So
it will be three days of lots of program, lots of events and lots of fun.
We plan to open the website of this conference during January. The website will be set to be a part
of the FDXA website and when the conference site is open, a link "EDXC Conference
2017" will be found on the main page.
The conference will start on Friday afternoon 18th of August and end on Sunday afternoon 20th of
August. This time of summer is not anymore high-season in Finland, so if you like, you should be
able to book extra nights pretty easily and with reasonable prices. Also a post-conference tour is
planned. This would last a few days and the target would be Finnish Lapland including visits to the
well-known LEM and AIH DX sites and also possibly including a visit to Nordkapp (the
northernmost point of the European continent). If you are interested in joining this tour, please
don't make any flight bookings yet.
The conference organizing committee has been set. The committee chairman is Risto Vähäkainu.
You are welcome to address your special questions to
Hoping to see many many of you in Tampere next summer!
