DXing has been a part of my life since the 1960s.
MT cover August 2010

Over the years, I have DXed TV, FM, medium wave (AM), and shortwave. Although medium wave was always my favorite, TV DX consumes most of my DX time these days. My current TV log contains more than 1,100 TV stations logged since 1994.

While TV DX from Mexico has been the main focus of my DXing since the late 1990s, my TV log contains stations from forty-one inland U.S. states, D.C., Hawaii, five Canadian provinces, and five Latin America countries. As for Mexico, my log contains 141 TV stations from twenty-seven (of thirty-one) states and D.F.

The August, 2010, issue of Monitoring Times magazine contains my article about TV DXing in the digital age. TV DX is featured on the cover, and my article is three pages long. Many thanks to MT's Ken Reiss for giving me the opportunity to write that article.

My TV DX pictures were photographed using the following equipment:
• Canon AE-1 35mm camera (1996-2004)
• Snappy 2 screen capture (2003)
• Canon digital camera (2005)
• Canon A590IS digital camera (2009-present)

Thank God, my wife's health has been better the last two years. While the 2013 E-skip season produced a less than normal level of DX and lower MUFs, I did manage to add several new logs via Es and tropo.

Antennas used by me in 2013

Antennas The big antenna is a highly-directional Winegard CA-5254 VHF-only antenna connected to RG-11 coaxial cable. The boom length is fifteen-and-one-half feet, and it is eighteen feet above ground level. The UHF eight-bay antenna to the right is an old-style Channel Master 4228 connected to a Winegard AP-4700 UHF pre-amplifier and RG-11 coaxial cable. Height above ground level is twenty-two feet. Both antennas are on rotators.
