North Bornholm DX Group
North Eastern coast, beach at Sandkaas.
North Bornholm DX Group (NBDXG) is a group of Danish radio amateurs living on Northern Bornholm Island (IOTA EU-030).We have, however, both members and supporters who are resident in other regions of the country.
Our purpose is to work DX with small means and we want to show other radio amateurs, that it is possible to work DX with great success without spending your lifetime savings.
Your homes doesn’t have to look like something that a former coastal radio station would be envious of.
It is, of course, not everyone who has a bank account that can pay for the enormous towers and antennas. And not everyone have housing conditions that makes it possible to have such antennas.
There is no need to buy equipment to several thousand dollars to work DX.
Less can do it, yes MUCH less can do it!
A good used transceiver for a few hundred dollars and a simple wire- or vertical antenna can do it.
BUT IT REQUIRES PATIENCE AND GOOD OPERATOR TECHNIQUE and a bit of luck!
The Group’s members are taking advantage of ordinary radio stations with a power output between 50 and 150 Watts. The antennas are simple wire antennas that in some cases are homebrewed and at a cost of a few dollars or less.
