Use your radio transceiver, logging software and Internet resources to experience the thrill communicating anywhere in the world!
Most everyone has dreamed of using distant radio communication (DXing) to talk with people in interesting and distant lands. This book helps make that a reality, describing the antenna, transceiver, amplifiers, propagation prediction tools and radio operating protocols used for successfully making DX contacts.
In addition to the equipment requirements, author Jeff Cantor, K1ZN, draws on his many years of DXing to highlight: signal propagation characteristics, spotting clusters and other resources used for finding DX stations. Once contacts have been made, the fine points of QSLing and applying for DX award programs are described. For those looking for something more, there is the challenge of working DX on the Top and Magic Bands, and the excitement of working QRP.
