    That's what I was eventually gonna get to is DXing because that is one of my main interests. I planned on getting my general and extra when I feel like I'm ready. I wanna learn the basics and get some local QSL cards for now.
    I made my first communication today at 18:53 UTC on 441.375 MHz

    Good stuff on your first QSO, KE5SCY! Glad to hear you're going to get into DXing! I wrote a popular (not to brag, but it's true) article on about beginning in DX. If you want, you can see it at: .

    I have 192 DXCC entities. It really is fun, simple, and can be easy if you're only doing it casual (but it can sometimes get tough too, believe me!)

    I LOVE 15 meters, my favorite band.

    No one looks over there, so when it opens and I hear Pacific stations, less people to have to get over! [​IMG]

    15M FOREVER!!!!!!!!!

    Yeah, I like it too. Good DX includes: 5T5DY, Mauritania; TZ1T, Mali; T32MO, Eastern Kiribati; V51AS, Namibia; YW0DX, Aves Island; 9G???, Ghana; 3DA0ZA, Swaziland; and VK9DNX, Norfolk Island.

    You CANNOT beat the late morning/early afternoon path on 15M for African QSO's. Period. Even at the bottom of the cycle. The mid/late afternoon path is pretty good for Pacific stations, I agree, but a better one exists on another FB+ band, 17M at a slightly (15 or 30 minutes) later time.

    BTW, just for the record, here are the best Pacific band/times for Central and Eastern US time zones: 40/80M, around 8–12:30 UTC; 20M, around 16–20:30 UTC;12M around 19–21 UTC; 17/15M around 18:30–23:00 UTC; 20M around 1–5 UTC.

    Hope this helps up your DXCC score. 73, de Brennen KI4PRK age 13

    I know only 2 other hams in my area under 21!


    9 Year Old Ham

    My son passed element 2 this past month. He is 10 now, but was 9 when he passed the test. Still waiting for his callsign though. Any day now.

    SSB dxing is very bad during this spot of the sunspot cycle. It seems that I can never break pileups on ssb. I love CW because I hear dx on CW every day and can work multiple countries a day. SSB dxing should improve as does the sunspot cycle though
