The story of mydx.eu
Winter 2009, RDA mailinglist:
RM4N - "lets create online RDA confirmation site"
So, Andy is the Godfather of this site :)
I (ES1TU) just happened to be at the right place at the right time.
Back then all confirmations happened with good old paper QSL cards.
So, there I was, chasing RDA's, subscribed to RDA mailinglist until I saw Andy's idea.
My other passion (in addition to amateur radio and travelling the world) is programming.
It's actually my real job too (being employed by Microsoft Corp).

So - I decided to give RM4N's idea a try and two weeks later we had a first version of 'avtozachjot' :)
Russian ham's are really nice people to work with. They never ask 'whats my benefit in this'.
First ADIF logs started to arrive and our database was growing surprisingly fast.
I could concentrate on programming while the guys were digging out the logs from different stations.
I dont remember what day it was, but on one rainy morning RDA award manager Roman (RA3R) said:
"I like your stuff and I'm willing to accept your site to confirm RDA's".

Today we have 42 million QSO's in our database and mydx.eu has become official RDA confirmation site.
To get more people involved in RDA - we scanned our database and found
27000 hams around the world who have at least 100 RDA's confirmed. We reached out to them
and I'm super happy to see new people joining the RDA world.
I cant believe my eyes when I see daily 300-350 people connected to our RDA-cluster.

mydx.eu is running in my basement, in the suburbs of Tallinn, Estonia.
It runs on 8 core AMD 5800X CPU, 32GB of RAM and 512GB SSD.

Most of the hardware cost was donated by our community:

SM4EMO, DL7AYM, N4BAA, UA4PCM, SM5CZQ, UA9JLL, SM4IED, SM3WMU
SM5ELV, SP4NKU, EA5ET, F6EYB, RA6AR, SM3EVR, EI7CC, SM6DHU, SM5DGE
F6GCP, SP4JWR, S52GP, SM6CUK, SM6BZV, SM1NJC, RK3AW, YL3CW, G4BWP
DL7UXG, SM5FUG, RD3FV, HA9PP, UA4LDP, DL5AVJ, LA8OM, OK1VK, G3OAG

JN3SAC, F6FNG, SM4CTI, DK8IZ, R9HBF, DL3BRE, DF1YQ.
Code is written in C++ programming language by ES1TU.
It is compiled into 64 bit binary using Microsoft Visual Studio.
Database is Microsoft SQL Server.
Its tracking both RBN network and dxcluster to give you
the fresh RDA spots.
All the mapping stuff is done by Andrey, R1CF.
He's a really nice guy from St.Petersburg and you
can hear him very often activating SP/LO/NV regions.
RA3R - RDA award manager & CEO
R1CF - maps
UA3AAJ - confirming your QSL scans
RL1W - confirming your QSL scans
RW6HKF - helped us A LOT with logs
ES1TU - mydx.eu founder
There wouldnt be any RDA program without legendary activators like:

R5QA, RN9N, RK3AW, R7AB, UA9CDC, R9YU, RV1CC, RZ9SZ, RA3AV, UA9CGL
.. and many, many others who drive thousands of kilometers
to give you new RDA's. Gena, R5QA has been on the road for last TWO months,
driving all the way to Khabarovsk (near JA, BY border). Gena is a legend!

Recently we got a new activator Anatoly, UB8S. Welcome aboard Tolja!
Q: Why do I see ads here and there?!
A: It helps me cover internet & electrical bill to operate the service.

Q: Why dont you have bands like '9band-RDA' does?!
A: They came years after our original RDA program.
We think working 2500+ RDA's for foreigners is hard enough,
working them on all 9 bands is something for hard-core locals :)
