Membership Information and Support
Q: What is NCDXF?
The Northern California DX Foundation itself is a
private foundation described in Section 501(c)(3) of
the Internal Revenue Cod. It was founded in 1972 to
assist worthwhile amateur radio and scientific
projects with funding and equipment. NCDXF's funding
comes entirely from voluntary contributions from
members and friends, from grants from other
foundations and organizations, and from investment
income generated from the Foundation's initial
$250,000 endowment. An eleven member Board of
Directors oversees all of the Foundation's business.
These Directors and the volunteer advisors who assist
them have held responsible positions in the business
or academic worlds. They all are active amateur radio
operators. The Foundation does not have a paid staff,
and no Foundation officer, director or advisor
receives a salary or compensation in any form.
