The Grant Dixon Award was established in 1983 to mark the retirement of Grant Dixon G8CGK from the BATC Committee after more than 30 years in office (see CQ-TV 121 p39).
The award was originally intended to be presented at the BGM to the author of the best article to have been submitted for publication in CQ-TV during the previous 2 years.
In more recent years it has been awarded to individuals or project teams who are judged by the BATC committee, to have contributed significantly to the development of the ATV community.
