‘The New DX’ers Handbook’….


For any new Licence Holder or anyone new to Dx’ing, you may find this PDF document of value with some tips and pit falls to guide you through your early stages of Dxing. The document begins;

”Every accomplished DXer was a beginner at one time. This booklet contains many of the basics of successful DXing. DXing can become a lifelong passion. It is also a lot of fun!

DXing offers opportunities of personal growth in a wide variety of areas from geography, to science, to language skills. It also offers a competitive outlet for those who are so inclined.

I hope that this short handbook will give a running start to those new to our ranks.
Best regards, Bryce Anderson, K7UA

Charles M0OXO

I was born in the 1960’s and have lived all my life in the Coal Mining Town of Barnsley in South Yorkshire, Northern England. My parents were all from this area of Yorkshire and my father worked in the main Industry of the local Collieries as a face worker. I have been married to my wife Debbie for 35+ years and we have two children and two grandchildren.

I have been licensed for around 20 years after my interest was re-kindled when I retired from my role as a Police Officer within South Yorkshire Police Force. The latter few years were spent as Radio Operator in the Force Operations Control Room at Sheffield, before my career ended.

IOTA chasing is (and always has been) my real passion, as climbing the ladder to reach Honour Roll status was always my main aim. The 1000 Islands Trophy is still out of reach but I am heading in the right direction. I am currently a Board Member of IOTA Ltd and IREF.

In my free time I am a keen Photographer of Wildlife, Aviation, (anything really) but the QSL Manager role is my main passion within Ham Radio.
