Claudio Maracci, I4XCC was a very active amateur for many years and his various successes included wins in the 1994 and 1996 Marconi Memorial Contest.
The organisers of that contest decided to create an I4XCC Memorial Award for 2015 for the Single Operator that made the best DX during the contest.
There were 676 valid logs in the single operator category and 147 in the multi operator category, including several well-known VHF operators from the UK.
Congratulations to John, G4ZTR who wins the I4XCC Memorial Award.
