The Intrepid-DX Group has announced that noted DXer and DXpeditioner Yasuo “Zorro” Miyazawa, JH1AJT, is the recipient of its 4th annual Intrepid Spirit Award. The award recognizes his efforts in activating Eritrea, Myanmar, and Bangladesh.
“Zorro is largely responsible for fulfilling the need for Eritrea, Myanmar, and Bangladesh contacts,” Intrepid-DX Group President Paul Ewing, N6PSE, said. “We recognize Zorro’s unselfish acts to activate these challenging and much needed entities. We acknowledge Zorro’s pursuit of operating excellence and his quest to activate the rare and often difficult entities.”
The Intrepid Spirit Award was presented on April 16 at the International DX Convention in Visalia, California. Miyazawa was inducted into the CQ DX Hall of Fame in 2015. The Intrepid Spirit Award honors the life of James McLaughlin, T6AF, who died in Afghanistan in April, 2011.
The award recognizes and honors individuals or teams that “boldly activate rare entities, where their own personal safety is secondary to their pursuit of providing contacts to the DX community,” the Intrepid-DX Group says. — Thanks to Paul S. Ewing, N6PSE
