2017 saw continuing strong interest in the CDXC DX Marathon Challenge, with more than 250 participants entering from 53 DXCCs on 6 continents.  Once again, the competition was close, with the top 17 participants in the overall Challenge within 90% of the winners.

According to the rules, a station may be awarded each of three trophies only once in any 3-year period.  As a result, PY5EG was not eligible to compete for the Club Log Trophy this year, as he was last year’s winner, but he is awarded this year’s GM4FAM Trophy for Top CW Score, with 264 DXCCs worked.  This year’s winner of the Club Log Trophy for highest overall score is Oscar, EA1DR, with 277 DXCCs. 

In the Phone competition, PY5EG and PA2LO were not eligible this year, and the G3NUG Trophy is awarded to Rob MWØRLJ, who also won the trophy in 2014.  

The top Intermediate score was by Martin 2MØBEC with 108 DXCCs, while there were no entries in the Foundation category.  (I hope that everyone will encourage new DXers to join the Challenge in 2018!)  Phil MØVSE was the winner in the Rookie category with a score of 185 DXCCs.  The top scoring non-member was Dennis K7BV with 278 DXCCs.

All scores announced have been adjusted after adjudication.
