Over 30 new Can-AM logs were added to the Can-AM page. The Superior East page was added. It's in a very raw stage. Don't expect it to change much, really.

NEWS: Oct'17 was the 5th best AMDX October for Hot Tips!. After October 6th, a huge uptick in pages viewed per day. Days with 300, 400 were common. Must have a lot of interest in this dying medium of radio, I guess. The time zone used in AMDX Hot Tips has been discussed several times, but it was pointed out that "midAMerica" is basically in the CENTRAL TIME ZONE. So that is that, yet if it is ever brought to the attention that EASTERN should be used and that is the consensus of most reporters, that is what would be done. The following pages will be changed/flipped/wiped for either the time change or for the monthly calendar change. Here is that list: the political unit page dx depth chart, Central/Mountain DX Entries, Eastern DX Entries, DX splatter and Latest longform DX reports. Of course, the new HOT TIPS page will be up and running. There will be a dotted line to differentiate between daylight and standard time, towards the bottom of that page.

NEWS: Not only AM, but FMDX too, was ABOVE AVERAGE, for another month! So, May, June and July have been above average for FMDX, despite the complaining you see in so many places, Patience! Thank YOU all so much for your reporting year after year, decade after decade!
The DX-midAMerica.com reporter maps are updated every time there is a new reporter. The FMDX reporter map is for all reporters from 2017. The AMDX reporters map goes from deason to season, or September 2016 thru August, 2017. A new map will be started then. Thanx so much to the reporters who make this effort possible! It is updated daily and has been so since September 3, 1997! DX-midAMerica was in print (newsletter) form, founded in 1981.
Again, this month, there was a day with FIVE REPORTS. July 31st was the day. Lotta DX!
The DX on the DX-midAMerica.com website basically goes back to 2014. The site has been up since 1997 and to be honest, there have been pages wiped out, things/pages or parts of pages are, and have been lost in cyberspace, etc. Days where the provider has been down and slight and major changes in HTML coding, and really, there's only so much space. Angelfire gets knocked down about 3-4 times a year: hackers usually. Things happen and really, nothing is ever guaranteed. On this end, the UP MICHIGAN page was mostly wiped out, the "miscellaneous" page was mostly obliterated also. There's no guarantee that things/copies/etc cannot be wiped out. Noting is really guaranteed. That, too, is in the regulations of the provider. From this end, one can go years with nothing happening, then things can/might happen. Cars break, so does plumbing as do websites/pages. Still, after all this time, this effort is still truckin'!

The Cayman Islands page was added with monthly updates, on the 18th. Proud to say that it's more accurate than some of the things I see on the net. It's a nice place to dx, and has some nice, well formatted radio stations. Too, the Retro 1-2-3 page will look at one month, two dx'ers and three nice catches from those people. Chris Kadlec-MI released his Seoul AM Radio Listening Guide project with a 3-hour narrated bandscan and 115-page guide, audio transcript, and map earlier this month. There is also a link to this at the DX-midAMerica.com Search & Help page. 3 days in January, 400+ views to DX-midAMerica! There have been more. There have been less, but it is nice to see the site has folks who check it out.
