Check it out! Easy as 1-2-3! On this RETRO PAGE, ONE month is checked out, TWO new, interesting or rare catches are listed from THREE DX'ers reporting in that month. A lot of people have contributed dx tips since 1981. In this page, you can see their contributions! All DX-midAMerica bulletins and internet pages have been saved. That's a lifetime of dx, notes or things of interest! It's really a nice look back: old calls, stations gone, old formats, etc! One can really look back and see where we once were and where we are now, and a lot in between. Some might have been forgotten and some might have never been heard again! That rare! That good! So, it is 1-2-3 for each month, plus any other goodies found!
