Links & Reflectors
I have been chasing DX since I worked over 90 countries as a
Novice (remember the 2-year, non-renewable license?). I am on the DXCC
Honor Roll - Mixed (352 confirmed), Phone (350 confirmed) and CW (349
confirmed). Here is my all-time needed list (P5/North Korea is confirmed on RTTY
but no other mode [yet]):
I also have earned the following DXCC awards (totals as of April 2011):
- RTTY (310 confirmed)
- 10 meters (329 confirmed)
- 12 meters (311 confirmed)
- 15 meters (341 confirmed)
- 17 meters (335 confirmed)
- 20 meters (349 confirmed)
- 30 meters (304 confirmed)
- 40 meters (330 confirmed)
- 80 meters (280 confirmed)
- 160 meters (104 confirmed)
We moved to Brighton, CO in June 2007. I got back on the air in August, 2008.
I have worked over 200 DXCC entities since then, running on 100W. You can
see my DXCC listing HERE.
We bought our first house in August, 1997 and on October 1, 1997 I put up a G5RV dipole about
35 feet (10 meters) high and worked my first DX from the new QTH (got K7K on Kure the very
next morning). As of May 2007, I have worked 333 (mixed) countries, 330 (phone) countries
and 327 (CW) countries. I also achieved WAZ on CW, SSB, RTTY, 40-10M, and 35
zones on 80M. Of countries that had
been on, I have missed only FR/Glorioso and ZS8/Marion I. Had I
worked and confirmed those two, I would have made the DXCC Honor Roll in just 5
years! Here is the list of DXCC entities I did not work before moving to
- FR Glorioso
- KP1 Navassa
- VK0 Heard
- ZS8 Prince Edward & Marion

I got on RTTY for the first time in February 1999 in the CQ
WPX contest and worked my first 43 countries. As of April 2011 I'm up to
310 countries confirmed. I'm running mostly 100W to keep the
antennas from burning up. I'm using
MMTTY software for day-to-day DXing, and
WriteLog for contesting. I've put
together a few links for people who are just getting
At the New England DXCC Convention in October, 1995, I spoke about the Internet as it
applies to DXing. While working on the presentation, I wondered how many DXCC countries
have amateur radio operators who are also on the Internet. At that time, I had collected
Internet E-mail addresses from about 80 DXCC countries. The
Internet DXCC List total
was up to 194 countries before I stopped working on it in July, 1997.
