DX-tra, news, hype

January 31,2017
A few days in the past month, updates to the DX TIPS section have been done at least 2 times per day, and there was one day where those tips were updated 4 times: January 21st. That shows some nice support, and a sincere thank you to all!


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. It's a nice look back at where we are and where we have been, but who wants to go back. That page is updated on the 5th. My guess is we like our totals now, vs when we started, hi!


Nice note from Chris Kadlec-MI who 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. It's at is the link to it. I have heard folks say the hobby is dying off, etc, but with people like Mr. Kadlec, this hobby is in good hands. Chris is a dx'ers dx'er! There is also a link to this at the DX-midAMerica.com Search & Help page.
Too, a very sincere thank you to Richard Line-MI who has sent some interesting things for over a decade! Many of the stuff he has sent are on the Search & Help page (with linkage above.)


As the AMDX season winds down, please remember the FMDX is coming up, and too, this effort is updated multiple times daily. It is a true labor of love, run by a committee of one, with plenty of good input from many over the past three plus decades! Quite a few of you have helped more than you will ever know. Again, thank you so much! Remember, you may always, always write with concrs or comments. You will not be blown off or taken for granted here. E-mail and get a quick reply!


AND...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. And now, I didn't hit reload 399 times! Nyuk-nyuk!
