Reminder: CQ Hall of Fame Nominations Due March 1

Nominations are now open for the CQ Amateur Radio, Contest and DX Halls of Fame, with a deadline of March 1, 2018.

The CQ DX Hall of Fame and the CQ Contest Hall of Fame recognize those amateurs who have made major contributions to DXing and contesting, respectively. The CQ Amateur Radio Hall of Fame recognizes those who have made major contributions to amateur radio as a whole, and radio amateurs who have made major contributions to society at large. The activities and accomplishments that qualify one for membership in these elite groups involve considerable personal sacrifice and can usually be described by the phrase "above and beyond the call of duty."

Nominations to any of the halls of fame may be made by individuals, clubs or national organizations, and must be submitted by March 1 of each year to be considered. A maximum of two (2) people may be inducted into the Contest and DX halls of fame each year. There is no set maximum for inductees into the Amateur Radio Hall of Fame.

Nominations may be e-mailed to (preferred) or mailed to CQ (Amateur Radio, DX or Contest) Hall of Fame, c/o CQ magazine, 17 West John Street, Hicksville, NY 11801 USA. Be sure to specify for which hall of fame the nomination is made.

Again, the deadline for receiving e-mailed nominations is March 1. Mailed nominations must be postmarked by March 1.
