Join the DARC January 3, 2017 at the Club meeting for an exciting presentation:
The DX Bug can strike a ham at any stage in life without warning! It starts with a terrible ‘itch’ that is easily transmitted to other operators, much like chicken pox.
The bug eventually affects 70% of ham radio operators, causing insomnia and contest exhaustion. “Split” personalities are also rather common. We will pass along lighthearted ways that fellow hams can cope with the dreaded DX bug and slake their thirst for DX without sacrificing mental stability.
Learn more about DXpeditions, equipment choices, handling pile-ups, working split, DX contests, and some DX resources. You won’t want to miss this presentation
