Untitled[edit]

I strongly believe to leave this alone, and discuss in this section theory and concepts of DX communication, rather than the history and or description. Algorithms and/or methods should be post it here as well.


When you say leave this alone, what are you referring to, the article or this talk page?

As far as methods, there is a number of ways I for one DX. I live in an apartment so I have to deal with a ton of EMI and RFI from numerous sources. Given that there are so many computers, televisions, microwaves, and other devices within short distances of my radio, I have to keep it near a window to get decent reception. Lately I've been noticing that I can only get stations from either the north or south, which is the direction my radio faces. If I turn it to east or west (the radio itself) all I hear is interference. Putting a radio close to a window or even DXing outside allows you to hear everything relatively interference clear, on all bands.

Different antennas I use include the radio's built in AM antenna (I primarily DX on Mediumwave) I also have used a number of loops custom designed for the AM band. Any antenna, even if its just a piece of wire, helps.

I also collaborate with other DXers and we are always sharing finds and even triangulating stations at the same time. What I mean by that is that we are on the phone with each other, and are listening to the same frequency to see if we can get the same thing. The other DXers I collaborate with are not in my state and are often long distances away. Some are relatives :D.

If you'd like any other information, specifically related to mediumwave, post it on my talk page. Thanks! Milonica (talk) 22:03, 26 February 2008 (UTC)
