    There's a BIG difference between calling, "CQ, this is W5UAA" and calling, "CQ, this is SV0JG" or "CQ, this is HL9GN". (Edit: in English...)

    I know, because I've called all three.

    Not much difference between, "CQ, this is W5UAA" and "CQ, this is G0GZH". I know, I've called both.

    DX is in the eye of the listener.

    Therein lies the enigma- anything is DX for those who listen with their eyes.

    I’ve just started playing with my new QRP rig.
    I’m now defining DX as ‘over there, thataway somewhere’.

    There is no single definition for DX. But in general I consider it to mean any other DXCC entity. However, if I heard a Canadian station calling CQ DX I wouldn't answer his CQ. I would assume he is probably hoping to do better than Michigan in his call for DX.

    Ah, so Canada is definitely DX as is 1/3 of the US. But most of the Caribbean is not nor is half of Central America.

    I think all of the attempts to redefine it are equally bad. Best stick with the current definition. Even if some Canadians supposedly can't understand it.
