Comments and thoughts about the DX scene


Licensed in April 1977, I started DXing in 1978. Now top of Honor Roll phone and mixed, just needing P5 on CW, I like to watch what is happening on the bands.

Please feel free to share comments !




  1. Just found your blog… and interest in improving cw skill… well, there is a program, you may not know about, called CWCOM from MRX SOFTWARE. it is a free program, where you can connect a morse key to your computer or laptop ( not android but can to Linux ). and chat inforamlly via cw to anyone else, like minded, around the world, via the internet… no ham licence is required, and non licence holders can make up their own call name.

    a good place to meet new people, and practice sending and receiving.

    no big antenna, no megawatts of power… no qrm.. no qrn.. 599 everytime ! !..

    It is a bit quiet on there at the moment, so we are looking for some new blood… I am on there just about every evening from 19:30 [UK LOCAL] G.M.T. ( it`s winter time in the U.K) until about 22:00(G.M.T)

    My call on there is GEMS.. would love to have a qso, and if you like CWCOM… tell your friends to come and join us..

    I have a blogsite too… http://www.nemosphotography.blogspot.co.uk

    where I tell stories about the morse keys I have refurbished over the past 3 years.. also some stories about my photography ! ( not an expert in either field, though! ).

    Hope to see you on CWCOM sometime…

    until then…

    73 DE GEMS VA DIT DIT ( name Gerry – qth Portsmouth, England, Age 71 and using straight keys only )..
