Please visit the above site - Try to follow to the Code of Conduct! It is listed at bottom of this page and on the Following Link:

http://www.dx-code.org/

My name is "Jim". My Dad, WB9MST - (SK), was my first inspiration in this hobby. Listened with a Hallicrafters SX-99. Studied code in my teens, but never took the time to get my license. After 40 some years of every-day life getting in the way, my neighbor down the road (K5BG) re-kindled my interest in this hobby. So, thats how I got here. Retired from an occupation of aircraft electronics and RF testing in 2007, only to work harder on our small ranch. In between caring for our Special Needs Granddaughter, mowing, building fences, etc.; I spend (relaxing) time building different types of antennas and working DX. I mainly work Long Haul DX, and only on HF and 160.

I have a modest station consisting of the following equipment: Yaesu FT-1000MP Mark V with Heil Pro+ headset (HC-4 & 5), Ameritron AL-82Q, ATR-30 Tuner, TH-7DXX (Super Thunderbird) Tri-bander at 50', 12/17/30 Meter D3W at 55', 12/17M beam @ 45', Dipoles for 80 & 40, Delta Loop for 30 Meters, 160 Meter inverted "L". I also use a "Hi-Z" Receive Antenna Array System for 30M through Top Band. All of my QSO's are from my own equipment at my home QTH in Weatherford, TX. No Remotes.

I DO NOT use RHR - it is for whiney losers and cheaters.

I prefer to use LoTW - it is free, and I upload regularly. Your QSL card is in LOTW.  I will send paper QSL's if I receive paper until my current supply is gone. I QSL direct all cards received direct, foreign or domestic. I also upload all QSO's to EQSL.

My wife and I are raising our 16 year old special needs Granddaughter, so time spent on the airwaves is very limited. Even though she is my number one priority in life, I have been able to manage the following progress during my first 7 years in the hobby:

  • 9 Band WAS
  • WAS - CW, SSB, Digi
  • W1AW Event: 96th (out of 199,787)
  • DXCC (per LOTW): Currently 318 Confirmed - 313 phone, 296 CW (As of November 2015) 

I do not use Club Log any more since their database, algorithms and DXCC results do not match that of LOTW (The Gold Standard).

Until Club Log gets their database problems fixed, I will only upload to LOTW and EQSL (for those entities that rely on EQSL for awards).

Both LOTW and EQSL are free QSL services - unless you just want to be a money grubber.

 

IMHO - If you use remote sites to work DX - you are cheating. It's nothing more than FaceBook or Twitter! It is NOT in the true Ham Spirit.

Suck it up and do it with your own equipment! - I do!

 

 

Operated with the W1AW Texas Team as: W1AW/5 Texas - What an honor - What a Blast!

 

 

 

Below: Home brew 12/17 Meter beam on a 24' boom (built out of 3 old beams).

It has 4 elements on 17 M, and 5 elements on 12 M. The 12 M portion is sleeve driven. The beam is about 45' above the ground.

Above the beam is a 12/17/30 D3W Dipole that works very well on 30 M. It is about 55'.

Works well in pile-up's also. wink

DX Code of Conduct:

1.  I will listen and listen and then listen some more
2.  I will only call if I can copy the DX station properly
3.  I will not trust the cluster and will be sure of the DX station's call sign before calling
4.  I will not interfere with the DX station nor anyone calling him and will never tune up on the DX frequency or in the QSX slot
5.  I will wait for the DX station to end a contact before calling him
6.  I will always send my full call sign
7.  I will call and then listen for a reasonable interval. I will not call continuously
8.  I will not transmit when the DX operator calls another call sign, not mine
9.  I will not transmit when the DX operator queries a call sign not like mine
10. I will not transmit when the DX station calls other geographic areas than mine
11. When the DX operator calls me I will not repeat my call sign unless I think he has copied it incorrectly
12. I will be thankful if and when I do make a contact
13. I will respect my fellow hams and conduct myself so as to earn their respect

(I would personally add: "Grow Up")

Did I mention RHR SUCKS?

Thanks for looking - 73's, Jim
