The Daily DX 20 Year Anniversary

It’s hard to believe I’ve been doing this for the last two decades.  After leaving my previous employer and not knowing what I wanted to do next I visited my old friend Rich Boyd, KE3Q, and the two of us came up with the idea of a daily DX newsletter which would be sent via e-mail.  In fact, Rich was the one who coined the name “The Daily DX”.  Initially, there were about 100 trial subscribers who were DXers and Contesters to test the waters.  After about two weeks it was obvious there was a demand and I began to offer subscriptions, including Charter subscribers during the first thirty days.  Many of those subscribers are still avid supports.  As in any business, those first 4-5 years were very difficult trying to support my passion and family!  Thankfully I have a loving and patient XYL!  So here’s to the next 20 years.
