This site is maintained by Danny in north Louisiana (nladxer). I have DXed MW, SW, FM, and TV off and on since the 1960s (when I was twelve years old). My first TV log dates back to 1968 and includes the logging of XHX-10 from Monterrey via tropo at over 600 miles. In years past, MW (AM Broadcast Band) was my favorite DX band, and I was a member of the National Radio Club and International Radio Club of America. At present, I spend all of my DX time chasing distant TV signals. I am a member of the Worldwide TV-FM DX Association and the British FM and TV Circle.
All TV DX is recorded onto tape (using as many as four VCRs and a camcorder during a good Eskip opening). Then, my ever-patient wife, Sandra, photographs the DX from video tape. She uses a Canon AE-1 35mm camera (with 400 film), set at a speed of 1/30 second. Sandra also helped greatly with these pages.
