Latest News....

July 2007 -

In an effort to bring the power of technology to the DX News scene, I have implemented a blog (what is a blog?) for the posting of the latest information. The power of the blog system is that there is a searchable archive so you may go back and review what others have done before, as well as the ability to use RSS. Through the power of RSS you can have the news from the blog delivered auto-magically to your favorite browser and even some PDA's.

In combination with getting news real time you should check out the WAP interface to the DX-Cluster listed here.

It is with great pleasure that we announce starting in February 2007 we are the USA distributor for the complete line of Spiderbeam products, including the world famous 3 and 5 band yagi antennas, as well as the fiberglass and aluminum masts. You can see list of products in our online store. Additionally you can visit Spiderbeam web page.

As some of you may have seen I took the original Spiderbeam fiberglass pole to Grand Cayman in April of 2005 and later that year I took the 5 band portable Spiderbeam on it's maiden voyage to Sint Marteen. You can read more about those adventures at DX-IS.ORG
