CDXC HF Challenge

The Hinson Trophy, named in honour of Gary Hinson, ZL2IFB, who conceived the first HF Challenge in 2009, is awarded to the CDXC member who works the most DXCC entities on the 21, 24, 28 and 50 MHz bands during the month of September each year, using SSB and CW.  Each DXCC entity is counted once only, regardless of how many bands or how many modes that entity is worked on (band-slot totals were counted in 2011).  No QSL cards are required, but in the event of a question, the CDXC committee or the Awards Manager may request additional information. There is no minimum number of entities worked in order to qualify.

All CDXC members are encouraged to enter the competition by submitting a list of all the DXCC entities they have worked on the four bands during the month of September. All entries must be submitted via upload to G7VJR’s Club Log www.clublog.org – paper and email entries are no longer accepted.

In years up to and including 2018, the Hinson Trophy was awarded to the high scorer and the Chairman’s Cup was awarded to the runner-up.  For 2019 and later, the Hinson Trophy is awarded to the high scoring SSB/CW station and the Chairman's Cup is awarded to the high scoring Machine Generated Mode (MGM) station.  Both are returnable silver cups presented at the CDXC AGM each year, along with silver salvers to be kept by the top three competitors.  In addition, silver salvers are presented to the top-scoring station on each band, 15m – 6m.  Competitors placing 4th through 10th place receive Certificates of Merit that are emailed to them once the results have been audited by the CDXC Board.  Entrants must be members of CDXC to qualify for awards.

Expanded results for each year are shown on separate web pages listed in the index.
