Currently working an FT-897D into a simple 40m Windom dipole. Have 8BDXCC, WAZ, VUCC Satellites, Triple Play, FT8 DXCC and FT8 WAS (ND, SD and DE were tuff!) and lots of other crazy stuff.

All contacts are uploaded to LOTW quickly. eQSL QSOs are responded. No bureau, please.

Conditions, conditions and conditions. And a bit of luck!

Realistic Expectations. The Baltimore Ravens certainly would not hire me as a linebacker. Likewise, with my dipoles, I do not expect to ever achieve DXCC Honor Roll. However, there are other things I can do, and do very well.

My Dipole DXer's Advice: Make your own luck...
* Let the big guns work the DX first and get out of your way.
* Avoid crowds.Work the DX during the week if possible or late in the DXpedition.
* The DX is the loudest right before the band dies. Pounce.
* If the DX is loud to you, you're probably loud to her.
* The DX is a creature of habit. If you didn't work him today because of a pile up, he'll be back tomorrow, same time and place.
* Be a good patient. As the doctor says, conditions will either get better or worse. Guaranteed.
* Knowing where the DX is listening will greatly improve your odds.
* DX is worldwide, and not just on land. Collect those 324 Maidenhead Locator Grids too!
* Be your own DX. Find a WebSDR receiver in Europe and listen to yourself.
* Develop a taste for the 30, 17 and 12 Meter Bands. They will be your friends.
* Scan and listen on the highest band open. That's your furthest distance band.
* Get there first, grab the QSO and then post the first spot. Let the pileup begin.
* Be a good LID. Its ok. Forgot to split? 1) Listen to the nice "band police." 2) Say thanks! 3) Split. 4) Forgive yourself. We've all been there!

* And from Steve, AK4Y: When the DX station calls QRZ & the big guns all call on top of each other, just wait about 10 to 15 seconds & then call. All the big guns have just caused a big noise & the DX station will pick up the tail end calls.

A GD DX OP is someone who

  • Has good ears.
  • Is fast.
  • Moves on.
  • Does not get personal.
  • Goes by the numbers as necessary.
  • Splits.
  • Stays until the band dies.
  • Gives me a call!

I fully support the DX Code Of Conduct (Thanks to VP8DMH)

  • I will listen, and listen, and then listen again before calling.
  • I will only call if I can copy the DX station properly.
  • I will not trust the DX cluster and will be sure of the DX station's call sign before calling.
  • I will respect my fellow hams and conduct myself so as to earn their respect.
