I make no apologies for links to other sites whose authors I respect as being the best in delivering relevant information.

I am a member of the RSGB: as our UK national body it deserves the support of all those interested in the hobby.

I am a member of the ARRL, the US national body looking after interests of Amateurs in the States. Information provided in QST the Journal of the ARRL is of the highest standard.

CDXC: The Chiltern DX Club is the UK’s premier DX Foundation, with approximately 960 members, dedicated to encouraging excellence in DX’ing and contest operating.

CDXC began in the 1980s, Since then CDXC has grown substantially with members sharing a common interest in HF DX and contesting, drawn together by their shared values of high standards of operating and DX’ing skills. CDXC has become one of the largest and most respected DX groups in the world.  I like to think helping to fund dx peditions is most important to the survival of our hobby!
