The DX100DX special project of the Philippine DX Foundation, Inc.(PDXF), Philippine Amateur Radio League, Inc.(PARL) and the Mabuhay DX Group (K6MDX) was a success. The collaboration of the groups indeed achieved the purposes for which the project was planned. The DX100DX special call station commemorated the 100 years of Philippine Independence and at the same time displayed the skills and capabilities of the Filipinos in contesting. The activity also was a venue for visiting hams in the area to view and experience contesting QSOs thru actual hands-on participation. From tower installation to equipment and computer layouts visiting guest had the perfect eyeview of what ham radio is all about and the excitement of contesting. The coordination and skills displayed by the operators in handling the contacts was indeed a preview of what the viewers would become in achieving the enjoyment the hobby brings. The group achieved 2,056 QSOs with a score enough to put them probably on top of their category among the Philippine entries.
