There are a few facts about DX'ing that get lost on many DX'ers. Many hams dream of going on a big expedition to a rare entity, but quickly run head-on into one of the inescapable facts of the hobby: going on a DXpedition to a rare locale costs money. A lot of money.

Earning ARRL's DXCC Award remains the gold standard of DX accomplishment for any ham interested in long-haul communications. While you can earn DXCC on a variety of bands or modes, most new DX'ers aim for the Mixed award: confirming 100 countries using any combination of modes or bands.

Veteran DX'ers know the word YASME. But newer DX'ers might not know the story behind the word, nor how relevant it is in today's amateur radio. What is a Yasme, and why is it important?

With October comes the contest and DX season. Conditions get quieter on HF in the Northern hemisphere. In addition, the first major event on the ham radio contest calendar, the CQ Worldwide DX Phone Contest, means lots of contest expeditions to places like the Caribbean, Europe and northern Africa will take place.

I recently made a couple of internals upgrades on the website, and I added a feature that I was owing to our donators for a while...
Now, as a courtesy for their support, donators will be granted with a period with a free-of ads site.

I just upgraded the site.
Now we have flags for DX information. If you dont like them, no problem: click on the options tab (right side, blue column) and choose not to show them.
We also have bearing & distance information when you pass your mouse over DX callsigns!
I hope you enjoy the new features!

Last night I updated the site. Whats new:
- the code that show spots has been greatly optimized, dxwatch.com should be running very smoothly now on all browsers.
- the system can now tag (with light green background) new spots arriving, so you can see in a glance what is new.
