Radio-DX

- listening to radio-stations from all over the globe -

Radio-DX is trying to pick up signals of distant radio stations from all over the world via their shortwave, medium wave, long wave and FM-frequencies.
"DX" means "long distance" and the people who have this hobby are called "DX'ers".
While listening, DX'ers are often in contact with remote countries, peoples, cultures, music and so on. Besides listening to the stations, most DX'ers also send a reception-report to the stations they have heard, in which they give the station information about reception-quality, frequency on which the station was transmitting, details of the programmes heard, receiving-equipment that was used, location of reception etc. After checking the report with their logbook and when the report is found to be correct, most stations will reply with a so-called QSL verification card.
Below you see two pictures of many years ago, one of my radio shack and one of me, sitting in front of my Trio 9R59DE SW/MW communications receiver with various antenna-tuners and other receiving equipment, as well as the received QSL-cards and station-pennants on the wall. At present I am also using an AOR7030Plus-receiver for my DX-receptions, connected to an outdoor L-antenna and an indoor AOR-LA390 loop-antenna for mediumwave reception.

        


Below you see some of these, often very beautiful, QSL-cards, I received from
radio-stations that I heard in The Netherlands.
