(16th February 2022) I decided to see if I could log some DX on the
(MF) band. I managed to log a total of thirty-nine
Australian stations and one
(1) station in China.
I was a little disappointed that only one overseas station made it into my
log. But I then thought about how we here in Australia really do take size
for granted. A few of the Australian stations I logged were about 1,500
2,100 km away. In some parts of the world that would definitely be called
DX, across multiple countries.
Australia is a big country. It is about 4,000 km east to west and about
3,200 km south to north. The whole of Europe and the United Kingdom easily fits inside Australia, as the map below shows.
Below is a list of the stations I heard. I have highlighted in red, the distance of some of those stations
(roughly as the crow files).
