DXing
K3WA Loves DXing
OK.  I like DXing.  I may not be very good at it, but I like it.  This is my "brag" page.  So, sue me.

I have been chasing DX and the DXCC Honor Roll for a very long time.  Working the January 2014 DX-Pedition to Amsterdam Island  got me on the DXCC Honor Roll. 

My DXCC Challenge is up to 2675.

I achieved 5 band DXCC and 160, 30, 17, and 12 meter DXCC.  For the record, I got 8 of the 9 bands DXCC worked using just wire and vertical antennas and low to medium power while living in city lots.   It can be done!   


Next: 6 Meters!   I have 67 countries on 6 Meters so far.  Quite a ways to go.

With the deletion of Kure and Midway Islands from the DXCC list I (like most of us) took a large step backwards in DX Challenge numbers.  Rats!

Now comes the hard part - finding the patience to wait out the needed DX-peditions for the entities I still need to make the top of the honor roll.  I am up to 338 so far.  Working them is fun - waiting for them is not!
