It is with deep regret that the 599 DX Association announce that our webmaster and dear friend, David Pickard – NM5Z became a SK on 11 January, 2022. Those who knew David were all blessed and are richer for being able to count this very special man among our friends. He will be greatly missed. Please take some time to visit his QRZ page to learn more about him.

The 599 DX Association was formed in 2010 by a group of hams whose core hobby interest is DXing and Contesting. We are unapologetic about our love and enthusiasm for this aspect of our hobby. The bulk of our members are located throughout the state of Mississippi, but we also have others from the south including Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Louisiana, Tennessee, and Texas.

Within our ranks are some of the nation’s premier DXers as evidenced by the fact over 29 of our 100 members currently hold DXCC Honor Roll status with several of those at #1 Honor Roll. Many of our members are also avid contesters placing well in single-op and multi-op events over the years. Some have gone the extra mile and experienced “being DX” either on solo DXpedition/IOTA activities or as part of a national or international team.
