In December last year, Top DX Radioclub of Hungary organized a shortwave listening contest “Top 10 DX of the Year 2018.” I participated and the results are here. I am #10 in the World, #1 in Asia and Japan. Just received its award certificate and nice polo-shirt. It was fun. Many thanks and FB DX!!
I had a chance to enjoy a seaside DX camping with local DXers club members. Actually, this is my first time to experience this kind of “DX-pedition.” I was so surprized to catch such a very strong signals from the Philippines, Australia, and other Asian-Pacific stations on medium wave here in Japan.
