This award is presented during the Annual DX dinner, or other
suitable forum, and has been a traveling award since 1980
The FINE PRINT: The newly installed DX HOG can negate the consequences of the last requirement, i.e. having to buy the other DX hogs drinks for non-display of the HOG in his Shack in only one way: He must wear the honorable DX HOG HAT for the duration of the Hamfest while in and or around the Hamfest premises.
