Eastern Iowa DX Association
The Eastern Iowa DX Association, founded in 1975, is a club with interests centered on DXing and contesting. EIDXA publishes a quarterly newsletter for members, the Eastern Iowa DXer, and holds quarterly meetings, including a summer picnic. EIDXA meeting dates and locations are noted under EIDXA Meetings.
EIDXA membership requires, among other things, full or life ARRL membership, proof of contacts with at least 100 DXCC entities, and permanent residence within 175 miles of Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Applications for membership must be approved by EIDXA members. The complete membership criteria is set forth in the EIDXA bylaws.
EIDXA has its own repeater, NØDX/R, operating on 145.19 MHz (Input 144.590 / Tone 192.8). The repeater is open to all users. Joe WØMJN is the trustee of the repeater and EIDXA club callsign NØDX.
The EIDXA Reflector allows members to circulate questions and information to fellow members by e-mail.
EIDXA also sponsors a packet cluster for DX spotting, operating on 147.51, 144.91 and wb8zrl.no-ip.org:7300. Tom WB8ZRL is the EIDXA Clustermeister.

Transition to the new Site
Today I copied the files over to the main portion of the website, bringing the New EIDXA website online. Yes, there are still bugs to be worked out, and if you find one, let me know, ok? -Jason
New globe counter
I added a globe counter to the left side of the page today. I'm sure that a lot of you may have seen this on other sites before. This shows the approximate location of the person viewing the site, based on service provider. and leaves a spot on the map to show who has been visiting our site. If you can't see it, your browser might have given you a nasty message saying that that it restricted this page from running ActiveX scripts. On Internet Explorer, I can just click on Allow Blocked Content, and it shows up just fine.
New Website Design
I have been working on this for awhile now. I've tried to give the site a new look from the ground up, to make it more useful, and easy to get around in. I would very much love to hear feedback from the clubmembers. And if you find any bugs, or a link that doesn't work, please drop me an email so I can get it fixed.

Updated Members Roster
The members roster is now located on the Club Information page. The roster is automatically updated from the XLS file, and no longer contains address and phone number information. The spreadsheet file will be available for download to members once I can get an access control page working to keep non-members out of it.
