Nominations Sought for 2013 Intrepid Spirit Award
The Intrepid DX Group is seeking nominations for an individual or group that most displayed “Intrepid Spirit” during 2013. “An Intrepid Spirit is bold, courageous, dedicated, innovative, fearless, generous, resolute, and visionary in their approach to Amateur Radio,” said Paul Ewing, N6PSE, in announcing the call for award nominations. “We are seeking to make this award to the group or individual that most displayed their intrepid spirit in 2013 by expressing an unshakable commitment to the Amateur Radio DX Community.”
The award honors the memory of James McLaughlin, WA2EWE/T6AF (SK), who died in Afghanistan in 2011.
Submit nominations via e-mail. The deadline for nominations is January 31, 2014. The Board of Directors of the Intrepid-DX Group will evaluate the nominations, and the award will be presented at the International DX Convention in Visalia, California on April 5.
The 2012 Intrepid Spirit Award was awarded to Silvano Borsa, I2YSB, leader of the Italian DXpedition Team. — Thanks to Paul Ewing, N6PSE, and The Daily DX
