The Eastern Iowa DX Bulletin
The Eastern Iowa DX Bulletin is published every Friday. It is a compilation of currently active DX operations (or those that will become active within the current week) from recent issues of DX bulletins from the US, Germany and Italy and other sources. The articles are ordered by callsign prefix with dates of operation highlighted in red. Hot links for QSL and other information are provided if available. Articles remain in The Bulletin while active. Also included is a Contest Calendar and a Propagation section, which is updated daily.

EIDXA offers financial support to DXpeditions that meet our formalized requirements, which include top 50 most-wanted ranking, duration, number of operators, planned bands and modes, and the interval since any previous operations.
