GMDX Group
Scotland's DX Association
DXpedition Support

One of GMDX's primary activities is the support of appropriate DXpeditions.
The number of requests far exceeds the funds available, so some criteria are required on which decisions to provide support donations are made.


Funding Criteria

The GMDX Committee will consider the following when sponsorship is requested:
  1. The proposed expedition must be high in the European most wanted lists.

  2. QSO target should be in excess of 50,000.

  3. A GMDX Group Application for Expedition Funding must be completed and submitted prior to the expedition.

  4. IOTA only expeditions will not be considered.

  5. Members of the expedition team are expected to provide their own transport costs by public transport to the nearest point of embarkation to the expedition location.

  6. GMDX Group Members may be afforded special status in applicatiion, one or more of the above criteria may be relaxed based on a decision by the club committee.
