FELLOWSHIP

WELCOME AND BE SURE TO TOUR THIS SITE USING THE NAVIAGATION PANEL AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE...THE MDXA IS A DX FELLOWSHIP..WHAT IS A FELLOWSHIP?...WELL,WE TRY TO AVOID TOO MUCH STRUCTURE,WE HAVE NO LEADER BY DESIGN AND OUR OFFICERS ARE KEPT TO A MINIMUM..WE ALSO CHARGE NO DUES..THIS WEBSITE IS SUPPORTED BY MEMBER DONATIONS AND IS *OWNED* BY THE MEMBERS..DONATIONS ARE NOT SOLICITED BUT ARE MOST WELCOME!..THIS SITE COULD NOT HAVE BEEN BUILT WITHOUT THIER SUPPORT AND IT WOULD HAVE BEEN MUCH SMALLER IN SCOPE...WE HAVE ALMOST 40 MB ON THIS SITE AND WE PAY A YEARLY FEE FOR THIS ALMOST UNLIMITED SPACE

ON OCCASION WE MAY RUN A BANNER FOR ANOTHER HAM RELATED SITE BUT WE RECEIVE NO FUNDS FOR THIS AND IT DOES NOT MEAN THAT WE SUPPORT SAID SERVICE AS A GROUP

WE ARE NOT JUST A DX CLUB,WE HAVE OCCASIONAL IN HOUSE CONTESTS LIKE THE MICHIGAN QSO PARTY LAST YEAR AND OUR YEARLY ISLAND DXPEDITION AND SPECIAL EVENTS...WE WERE ALSO THE FIRST DX CLUB IN THE STATE TO PROVIDE E-MAIL SOLAR REPORTS AND DX ALERTS!...THE MDXA IS OFTEN IMITATED BUT NEVER DUPLICATED.

WE HAVE QUARTERLY MEETINGS SO THAT OUR *MEMBERS* CAN DECIDE WHAT DIRECTION WE WANT TO TAKE THUS FULFILLING THE DEMOCRATIC PROCESS...WHEN YOU VOLUNTEER FOR AN OFFICE,THAT OFFICE IS YOURS! UNLESS SOMEONE "CHALLENGES" YOU FOR SAID OFFICE AND IN THIS CASE A FIGHT WILL BREAK OUT "JUST KIDDING" A RUN OFF WILL BE HELD,AGAIN FULFILLING THE DEMOCRATIC PROCESS..WE DO NOT WANT TO SEE A MEMBER IN AN OFFICE HE DOES NOT WANT..IN SHORT,AS A FELLOWSHIP WE PREFER AN ALL "VOLUNTARY" STRUCTURE..ALL CLUB EVENTS ARE VOTED ON IE WHAT ISLAND WE WILL GO TO..WHAT SPECIAL EVENT WE WILL DO,WE EVEN VOTE ON WHAT TYPE OF QSL CARD WE WILL HAVE PRINTED FOR THE DXPEDITIONS!!..EARLY IN OUR HISTORY IT WAS DECIDED TO NOT HAVE "AFFILIATIONS" IN THIS WAY WE ARE "FREE" TO THINK FOR "OURSELVES" AND NOT HAVE TO MARCH TO THE PHILOSOPHY OF ANOTHER ORGANIZATION..A FELLOWSHIP AS DEFINED BY "WEBSTERS" IS *FRIENDLINESS* AND THAT IS OUR GOAL.

THIS SITE CONTAINS GRAPHICS AND LIKE A GOOD MEAL THEY TAKE MORE TIME TO PREPARE. WE ARE NOT A "LINK ONLY SITE" THERE ARE THOUSANDS OF SITES THAT OFFER QUICK LOAD TIMES BUT LITTLE EYE CANDY TO BRING YOU BACK!

IF YOU ARE LIKE THE MAJORITY OF WEB SURFERS.. YOU PREFER SOME EYE CANDY AND SOUND,YOU HAVE COME TO THE RIGHT PLACE!!!

A GREAT SITE FOR JUST LINKS IS THE AC6V SITE. IT IS WONDERFUL AND I USE IT MYSELF WHEN I AM LOOKING FOR "JUST INFORMATION"
