    Whatever DX is, it’s probably up 5.

    U.S. Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart famously said in his 1964 Order that "I can not use words to describe DX, but I know it when I hear it."

    And I certainly wish I were in his logbook as well. That'd be my best QSO to date, in my eyes.

    And by the way, you're in my logbook as non-DX. :p

    When conditions were in the outhouse some 2 years ago, I was considering Texas to be DX (I'm in Arizona).

    My short range goal is DXCC on 12 meters. I currently have 98 confirmations on 12.

    My most recent 12 meter ATNO confirmation is ...

    Ya just never know

    Windsor, Ontario, Canada is 15 miles from me.
    QRZ lookup does show that VE5MX is 1111 miles from me, so I guess that's all right?
