Mirek Rozbicki VK6DXI Silent Key

It is with sadness that the OCDX Contest Committee reports the recent passing of Mirek Rozbicki VK6DXI (formerly SP5IXI) on 15 April 2015. Mirek was a keen HF contester, including being an enthusiastic participant and supporter of the OCDX contest. Mirek was a long standing member of the OCDX Committee since 2006. He was the sponsor of the plaque for the highest scoring station from Europe in the CW Single Operator All Band category and was instrumental in establishing the VKCC award for the top scoring VK club in the contest. He was also the proud winner of the Oceania Single-Op All Band category in both the PHONE and CW sections of the 2004 and 2005 OCDX contests. His leadership, enthusiasm and wise counsel will be greatly missed by the Committee.

RIP Mirek.

2013 Contest Results Published!

There were some changes to the certificates beginning with the 2010 contest in order to make a wider range of certificates available, reduce costs, and speed up the delivery process:
  • Certificates are awarded to the winning station in each entry category, for each country and continent.
  • Participation certificates are awarded to every entrant that made at least one valid QSO in the contest.
  • All of the certificates have been published on-line as pdf files for entrants to download and print at their convenience.
  • The certificates will not be posted unless specifically requested in writing from entrants who made at least 10 valid QSOs and also won a category in their country. Any such requests must be submitted to the Contest Committee info@oceaniadxcontest.com  by 31 July 2014.
  • Participation certificates cannot be posted.
