Description

Many radio amateurs enjoy the lure of DXing--seeing how far away we can communicate with other Amateur Radio operators. It’s a way of determining how well our stations -- and we, the operators -- perform. DXing is a full-time goal for some hams and a just-for-fun challenge for others. The pinnacle of DXing success is the ARRL DX Century Club, or DXCC award.

Author Jim Kearman, KR1S, discovered the thrill of DXing shortly after receiving his General Class ham radio license in 1963. After more than 40 years, the fluttery sounds of radio signals from faraway places still thrill him. In short, he still chases DX because it’s great fun!

We hope this book will inspire you to try DXing, and that you’ll use it as a guide to beginning your own DX journey.
