It's January 1st, so I have just submitted my score sheet for the 2014 CQ magazine DXmarathon.
Starting January 1 of each year, the DX Marathon is the perfect answer for the DXer who needs that extra incentive to get on the air every day. Simply work as many countries and CQ Zones as you can in each calendar year, regardless of the band or mode.
Each country and zone counts only once, so you can concentrate on working new ones rather than working the same ones on multiple bands and modes.
Last year I managed to work 104 countries and 26 zones. Hopefully I can do better than that this year.
