The Magnolia DX Association will help Mississippi celebrate it’s bicentennial by conducting a special event during 2017. Our club call K5MDX will be used for this event and a QSL card commemorating 200 years of Mississippi statehood will be available for those who work K5MDX in 2017. A certificate will be available for stations working K5MDX on any two bands or modes in 2017. K5MDX will be on the air during the Mississippi QSO Party, ARRL Field Day, and at various other times during the year on various bands and modes as club member time permits. Our club is also planning an increased level of activity for K5MDX in early December leading up to the 200th anniversary of Mississippi statehood on December 10, 2017. Listen for us on the bands and join the celebration!
