Yes, I am on LoTW. Thanks Bob!
I recall my first DX I worked on a simple dipole for 15 meters hung in the attic, that was 1958, DXing never ends, with me it occurs just about every day, Love this hobby. 62 years in it and still going strong at age 77.
Wow, awesome William!!! Really glad to hear that the joy has stayed with you!!!
That is a qsl OM!
great to hear your enjoy the dx. its great fun and a real journey as you climb the dx ladder. you have lots to learn and the education is half the fun .
I've got to warn you about this DX stuff. You make your first DX contact.... turn around..... and all of a sudden you realize that it's forty or fifty years later and you're still enjoying working DX.... It's like eating peanuts... have one and you can't stop until you empty the jar (300+ countries)!
Then you start over
And work them all QRP
It is addicting!! When I made my DX contact to Antarctica with RI1ANT at Mirny Research Base with 100 watts and a ZX6BKW dipole, I was shocked!
After that, I knew, I could talk to any place on planet Earth. Enjoy it and keep making those contacts!
I just want to say, I love this thread.
I introduced my Ham Radio hobby to a group of my students last Spring. Condx were poor, but I made a 20m SSB contact on a mag loop to Japan, and they were amazed.
