My Name is Nick Hacko, VK2DX. I've got into amateur radio at the age of 13, and have been on air for over 35 years from various locations. ARRL A-1 Op since 2012.

I am an editor of www.DXing.Today - also know as 'The Voice of Urban DXer' : QTH-challenged amateurs who suffer high urban noise, antenna restrictions, plasma TV junk and countless other obstacles which makes DXing almost impossible. Yet, we still work DX and have fun on air!

DXing.Today focus on FT8 modes, 80m band, DX and IOTA news - and much more. It has been described as 'sophisticated DX tool for discerning DX chasers'. Arguably the smallest DX Bulletin int the world- however 100% of our subscribers are loyal and satisfied readers. If you would like to receive a FREE copy then please send and email to mail@DXing.Today .

Yearly subscription: USD $24 for 52 issues. Our bulletin is non-for-profit, money collected through subscription covers modest production and advertising costs. Your support is truly appreciated.

At www.DXing.Today we publish two "Who's Who" rank lists: ALL-BAND and 80m only. As FT8 is an ultimate 'Urban DXing' mode, both lists are JT-modes only. You are most welcome to submit your totals- just send your DXCC/WAZ/WAS/CHINA worked / confirmed totals to mail@DXing.Today.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

CHASING CHINA! There are 33 Chinese provinces to 'chase' and your score counts toward the final 'Who's Who' total. Chinese operators are enthusiastic, love to exchange QSL cards and promptly confirm contacts via LoTW. Feel free to download .xls logbook at www.DXing.Today/china and start having fun.

I LOVE paper QSL cards so if you have worked me, please send one either direct to QRZ address or via Joe, W3HNK.

Residing in Sydney since 1994. I am a watchmaker by trade and make living buying, selling, repairing and making my own mechanical watches.My interest in radio is diverse: from chasing IOTA, US Counties and DXCC to contesting and DXing on the low bands. I enjoy CW, but also spend tme listening and chasing NDBs, VLF/LF signals, DGPS,Time signals and SWL on broadcast bands.

If you are a mechanically minded person and have interest in fine watches than you may wish to visit my watchmaker's page: http://nickhacko.blogspot.com.au/.

 
Typical Urban DX setup: a small tribander, low band vertical and 2 EME yagi - all squeezed on a tiny city block.
 
 
I was born in Yugoslavia (now Serbia). This is my 'other home location'
which I share with my brother Brane. He is YU7U and my call is YU7XX.
The antenna on the picture below is our latest project:
3 element full size yagi for 40m band, setup in a quiet rural location
in Srem, Serbia.
