LAST AUG: 69 NOW: 44
Looking at the numbers above, looks like a) we'll be above average and b)easily, will be ahead of last August. That's AMDX. FMDX is waning, but we'll still try for it. Who knows?
Meanwhile, I was doing some work on some of the other columns. AMazed as the fact that FMDX south of the border was logged again this summer and still, after all these decades since starting on 1981, new stations are still being logged and reported. There's always, always something out there. May we all have good luck!
I get e-mails once in a while on "joining" or "donations" and the like. You don't join anything. Just send it your dx tips. A donation. For what? Doing something I truly like? I'll leave that to others. Here it's FEE FREE. Remember too, your loggings need not be NEW to be reported! People are glad and happy to see what is out there! I know I am. Your loggings are shared with people who have checked out this site in 67 countries and 200+ hits per day, during this time of the dx season. New reporters are always welcome! I cannot stress that enough! We are FEE FREE and your dx tips are always, always welcomed here! info@DX-midAMerica.com to send dx tips! This started in 1981, and we are not going away!
Aside, I know there are many places you could send DX TIPS, QSL TIPS, FORMAT FLIPS or the like. I know there are a lot of choices. Thanx for choosing us! Thanx so very much for stopping by.

July FMDX was down somewhat from what is the norm for July. The new average is 220.80 HOT TIPS, down from the old average of 228.80. If you think this was a lousy July, and you're right, compare it to 1982, 1984, 1985, 1986 and 1998. We've had some horrible years of little dx. WORST: 17 tips in 1984. BEST: 2004:687 tips! 2006:636 tips! 2009/2010 tied at 372 tips! WoW! So, July, which as I remember has days and days of dx, didn't happen this year, nor last or the year before that! In 2011, there were 394 HOT TIPS. Since then, haven't cracked 275. Ouch!
July AMDX was up! I guess where there's little FMDX, we know where to head! What was nice was NEW/rare stations were logged...in JULY! WoW!36 HOT TIPS were reported! Average was 26.9, thus, we were ABOVE AVERAGE! Thanx so much for reporting! Too, in August, the numbers for AMDX pick up. It gets better!
