HamSCI member Ron Wilcox, KF7ZN, recently received the Utah DX Association’s 2023 Technical Achievement Award.  The UDXA recognized Ron for promoting radio-related science topics to the amateur (ham) radio community.  

Ron has given numerous virtual and in-person talks on subjects such as DX’ing (the art of making long distance contacts via ham radio),  the ionosphere, radio wave propagation and solar eclipses.  His audiences have ranged in size from dozens to perhaps thousands.  He has presented at astronomy clubs, ham club meetings, the 2023 HamSCI Workshop, the Visalia DX Convention, and the QSO Today Ham Expo, an on-line convention with worldwide attendance.  Not just an accomplished speaker, Ron’s byline has appeared in CQ Magazine and The Spectrum Monitor.

Ron has been a member of UDXA since 2013, and has served at various times as secretary, director, vice president and president. The club is based in Salt Lake City, Utah, with members across the state of Utah and beyond. It is an amateur radio club whose members are interested in HF DXing, awards, and contesting.

Congratulations Ron!
