  • DX NEWS LINKS

    Randy W7TJ came up with the idea of listing links to sites where info on DX is found. Here are the first few.
    1. DX WORLD.NET

    2. ANNOUNCED DX OPERATIONS
    3. DX SUMMIT BAND SPOTS
    4. I2MQP DX NEWS

  • INTERNET ENTITY PRONOUNCER

    What is the correct way of pronouncing a DX entity’s name? Do you battle it out at the club meeting with another DXer who differs from you?
    Here is a link to the entities in alphabetical order. On the site, there is also a audio link to a human voice saying the entity’s name correctly. This authority is the 3rd edition Merriam Webster Geographical Dictionary.
