The CQ Halls of Fame, The CQ DX Hall of Fame (started in 1967) and the CQ Contest Hall of Fame (started in 1986) were established to recognize those amateurs who have made major contributions to DXing and contesting, respectively. The CQ Amateur Radio Hall of Fame, started in 2001, recognizes those who have made major contributions to amateur radio as a whole, and radio amateurs who have made major contributions to society at large. The activities and accomplishments that qualify one for membership in these elite groups involve considerable personal sacrifice and can usually be described by the phrase "above and beyond the call of duty."
Nominations for the Contest and DX Halls of Fame are made by contesting or DX clubs or national organizations, and must be submitted by March 1 of each year to be considered. A maximum of two (2) people may be inducted into each hall of fame each year. Nominations for the CQ Contest and DX Halls of Fame should be directed to CQ (DX or Contest) Hall of Fame, c/o CQ magazine, 1206, Sayville, NY 11782 USA; or via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to specify for which hall of fame the nomination is made.
