DX Basics

DXing is the practice or hobby of sifting the airwaves for distant and hard-to-hear signals. The D stands for distance or distant location and the X stands for unknown.  DXers (as they are known), challenge themselves to find that one rare signal that they know is out there, not unlike the angler trying to get that legendary fish everyone has seen but no one has caught.  DX is a fascinating, addictive, exotic, sport, technical, fun, special and passion.
