the popular hobby of long distance communications performed during
periods of solar storms and the aurora.

CHARTER: is for the sharing of news and member information
of established and new radio dx groups.



This is a request for discussion, not a call for votes.  In this phase of
the process, any potential problems with the proposed newsgroups should be
raised and resolved.  The discussion period will continue for a minimum of
21 days (starting when the first RFD for this proposal is posted to
