Currently working an FT-897D into a 40m Windom, resulting in 8BDXCC, WAZ and lots of other crazy stuff.

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.
