The Oceania DX Contest Committee is pleased to advise that the results
of the 2007 OCDX Contest are now available for viewing at
http://www.oceaniadxcontest.com/index.html . The results include
soapbox comments, details of equipment and antenna used by entrants,
and photos of some of the leading entrants and their stations.

Congratulations to all the winners in the 2007 event. Of special note
is the performance of John Loftus VK4EMM who has repeated his 2006
feat of leading Oceania in both the PHONE and CW Single-Op ALL Band
categories. This achievement is a tribute to John's station and
operating skills, both of which John has been developing since 1995
when he first entered the contest using a setup in the back of the
family car. Also of note is the performance of JA7NVF and JH4UYB who
produced the highest scores outside Oceania in the PHONE Single-Op ALL
Band and CW Single-Op ALL Band categories respectively.

The 72nd Oceania DX contest will be held on the first two full
weekends of October 2008 as follows:

PHONE: 08:00 UTC Saturday 4 October to 08:00 UTC Sunday 5 October
CW: 08:00 UTC Saturday 11 October to 08:00 UTC Sunday 12 October

More information about the contest, including the rules, is available
from the Oceania DX Contest web site at

Finally and most importantly, thank you to everyone who participated
in the 2007 contest and made it such a success. We look forward to
seeing you all again, along with new entrants, in the 2008 event.
Let's hope for some better conditions and make it the biggest and best
Oceania DX Contest yet!
