In the early days of the World Wide Web,
everyone's "claim to fame" was a web page which was nothing more than
a series of links to other web pages. After a while, so many people had
these pages of links that the excitement was gone. This very page used to
be such a list, but time has distributed the information out into the Internet
into a number of better places.
Therefore, this page is a shell of its
former self. Rather than providing individual links, I'll just point to
other web sites where the information can probably be found.
- Logging software (both daily and contest)
- QSL information
- Good sites with many links
E-mail reflectors are a way of "broadcasting" a
message to a group of subscribers for the purpose of enjoining a discussion on a
topic that is relevant to the particular reflector. Three sites in
particular run quite a collection of different discussion groups:
In addition, there are a few reflectors out there specifically
dedicated to discussions about DXing:
- NJDXA DX Reflector
- DX-List E-mail Reflector
- DXLog (PAYL)
- Log Windows
- Personal Database Applications (LOGic)
- RTTY by WF1B
- SD (Super Duper)
- TR Log
- WriteLog for Windows
NOTE: a listing here is not an endorsement. I use DX4WIN
as my everyday logging software, and either CT
or WriteLog in contests.
Pathfinder is an
excellent tool with links to many sites. It can be run as a Microsoft
Windows application or run from its own web site. The Radio
Amateur Callbook ("Flying Horse") is still the standard when it
comes to looking up addresses for DX stations, but QRZ
and Buckmaster are rapidly closing the
gap. QRZ is also known for its large
amateur radio software repository. The Golist
QSL Manager List has been a standard for years.
- Command Technologies, Inc.
- QRO Technologies
- Force 12
- Mosley Electronics
- Japan Radio Company
- International Radio
- Top Ten Devices

I use ICOM and Ameritron
equipment at home, and my only commercial antenna is a
AV-640 multi-band vertical.
- 10-10 International
- County Hunting
- Earth-Moon-Earth (EME or "moonbounce")
- Islands on the Air (IOTA)
eHam.net is one of the best
sites around. Not only does it have a huge collection of links, but it has
DX spots from around the world, discussion forums, articles, classifieds and
Amateur Radio and DX Reference Guide contains
a huge number of links - check it out.
If you can't find what you are looking for at one of these
sites, it just isn't there!
