DX-tra, news, hype

Friday, March 31, 2017

On March 29th, there were 4 updates, with 66 HOT TIPS sent in! 66! Had there been five, every reporter that day would get a DX-midAMerica t-shirt. This (4 updates in one day) happened too, in January and February. Still hoping, hi! Anyhoo, if five reports ever come through in one day, every reporter will get a DX-midAMerica t-shirt, or if 100 HOT TIPS come in one one day, a T shirt goes to those reporters. Certainly, you'll be the only one on your block with that!

Another way to win, I guess, is if 100 tips would be posted in one day. This is quite possible with the upcoming E-skip/tropo season.

Check this out! March,2017 was the 4th best March for reporting AMDX since the humble beginnings in 1981! #1)405 AMDX reports 2005, #2)401 2001 #3) 260 2002 #4) 223 2017 #5 207 2003. WoW! And that's not a radio station in Omaha! Sincere congratulations to all who reported, got new stations and shared their reports. It takes time to report and put things together. YOUR efforts and kindnesses are appreciated more than you will ever know!
And if you think March was good, you are right! Not only that, but March,2017 basically doubled the average of 114 DX TIPS! If DX-midAMerica's numbers are any indication, March was as good as January and better than February and September, 2016, the beginning of the AMDX season, though for some of us the season never ends!
Again, not only was the site ahead of averages for AMDX for the 44TH month, but for 6 of the 7 months listed, numbers bested those in the previous year. Thanx to all who have sent in a dx tip or a kind word. In this hobby, you can only be better year after year. Your dx totals/numbers never go down! ;)

A sincere thank you to all who check out this effort.

As the AMDX season winds down, please remember that 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! Again, thank you so much! Remember, you may always, always write with concerns or comments. You will not be blown off or taken for granted here. E-mail and get a quick reply! Too, your e-mails are never forwarded. Your privacy is respected. E-mails could sometimes contain confidential information and is intended only for the specified recipient.

March 2017 marks the 44th 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!

The DX-midAMerica discussion page> now shows the date of each entry. This way, one might not look at the entries and think they were fresh from earlier in the day. This page is wiped clean when we go from Daylight to Standard time and vice versa.

April 2017 marks the 45th 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. Best of the month:
