Here I list out some of the things that for me is important for me to have it before I went for Dxing. A part from equipment and assessories, I listed here some additional or some aid for me to have easy DX operation. It could be not a must for you to have it, but at least you know what it is.
- What is QSL Card - WIKI has the answer for you.
- When you have contacted new station or Station that needed your QSL card so badly but you don't have it now then get yourself a QSL card. There are many sites offer print out QSL card for you. There are some site that give you option for you to upload your own pictures.
- 9W2CBL QSL Card got it from QSLPrinter.com. They offer a resonable price and also response from them is satisfied.
- You can introduce yourself by producing your QSL card during eyeball session.
- QSL card is like your Identity Card.
- Register yourself into QRZ.com. QRZ.com is worldwide database contain all callsign from around the world.
- When a DX station want to send you their qsl card, but they don't know your address unless you tell them over the frequency, it can get wrong sometimes and you will miss their nice qsl card. So better be safe for them to get your address correctly from QRZ.com
- You can also put in some details about yourself for others to know you better. HERE mine.
- Nowadays with available of internet, all sort of information can be obtain easily. Those days with no internet, prediction of propagation or open of contact from where to where is very hard. One have to stay in front of radio all time turning the dail back and forth to hear distance station to get a contact.
- DX Summit by
OH2AQOH8X is the most popular cluster to watch and monitor.
- Often someone would abuse it. It is good to report real report.
- DX cluster is to report a Distance contacted report so that one that view the report can know on how and when the propagation open and from where to where.
- Report on local QSO doesn't mean anything to others. You can't get any information from it. Local QSO can be enjoyable every day every time and every second. Compared it with distance QSO you have to count on propagation, condition and open from where to where - that is the most difficult, so DX cluster is the most important tools for monitoring.
