Great Online DX Resources
There are a huge number of
resources online covering the full range of
DX operations. I won't list them all - but
here's a few that are very helpful and easy
NG3K hosts a website called "Announced DX Operations
This site has tons of good information
presented in a grid like format. There are
also plenty of links to other ham and DX
related websites. This site is free and
loads very quickly.
Bernie McClenny has a great DX offering with
the "Daily DX
On his website there's a lot of free
information and links, including the "Daily DX Calendar
the big value here is his daily DX bulletin
that is available as a paid subscription.
It's emailed out every morning five days a
week and sometimes there's supplemental
releases as news warrants. It is easily
worth the money if you're a serious DX'er.
He even offers an honest to goodness free,
yes FREE, two week trial.

What DX Ops
Do We Feature Here?
I don't pretend to offer
in-depth coverage of every DXpedition,
weekend trip or holiday style DX operation
that's on-the-air from some of the more
common entities. Certainly they are very
important and a lot of fun - but CallingDX
will focus on the rarer DXCC activations.
Some "Rough" Inclusion
Guidelines For CallingDX
1) The DX entity should be in the top one
hundred on Club
Log's "Most Wanted"
there must be something unusual about the DX
activation that makes it noteworthy enough
(example - a six meter expedition from a
rare grid) to be included here.
2) It should be a multi-operator, multi
transmitter, operation. Solo expeditions are
cool but unless it's an extremely rare
entity it won't be covered here.
3) The DX activation must be focused on a
specific time period of
planned activity. Operations that are
"holiday style" or "when time permits"
generally won't be included here unless it's
from a very rare entity.
