DX-midAMerica/
DX-tra, news, hype

Wednesday May 31, 2017


May 2017 marks the 46th month in a row where we were above average for the number of dx reports (Hot Tips) received. Thanx so much to the reporters who make this possible month after month, and actually, year after year, or really, decade after decade! Thank YOU all so much!


Very, very proud of the fact there are days with 500+ views. There were 4 this month! Best of the month:
Page Views & Traffic Reports 5/6
Views: 621


May FMDX Eskip hit midAMerica for sure on May 25th! 64 reports were noted and a sincere thank you is in order for those who reported from IL, MI & NE. Had we gotten to 100 stations reported, every reporter would have gotten a nice DX-midAMerica.com t-shirt.


For the summer, in lieu of FMDX, quite a few AMDX'ers will go the graveyarders to get a new catch. Let's face it. The DX isn't long haul as it is in other months, so this is a nice place where dx can happen, and happen good!

May 2017: above average for the number of FMDX reports. MAY AV:68.45 2017:93 16:28 15:81 14:150. Hope is we are all there to catch the SUN and some nice FMDX through the coming summer months! Thanx to those who took the time to report. These days, years and life itself go so quickly!


The record chart shown and updated every Wednesday, has been slapped up weekly since May 30, 1969. At that time, I was 15 year old kid, life all ahead of me and was dx'ing 2 years! It's a long story. Had a Part 15 transmitter from Olson Electronics. Remember them? Ran it on 1610 kc/s, and thus the Top 16 hits. Later, in 1979, there was a move to FM and the Top 9+8 Hits (as in 98FM!) Obviously, I don't do that anymore, but the spirit of that radio is still there. Never got tired of it. Really, kind of nice to have something that held my interest really, almost a lifetime! Too, it has been nice to hear from people who thought it was a rather accurate and unbiased listing. First #1 song on "the Big 16?" Get Back, Beatles.
