Maybe I'm weird?
But I guess we all have our different "ways" that we like to engage in our DX'ing hobby.
The little things that we get a "kick" out of... Stuff that would be hard to explain to other DX'ers (maybe?), but out of the question to try to explain to a non-DX'er.
I like to DX both the AM band and the FM band.... But I'm fickle and switch between both bands frequently.
I grew up deeply loving the FM dial and still get a kick out of DX'ing it and REALLY, REALLY got hooked DX'ing this band when I got my first long-distance FM reception this summer
That was really exciting for me and was while I was vacationing in Tennessee, and the station came in loud and clear from Texas! Super cool!
Okay, so anyways....
One of the "niche" DX'ing activities that I have is that I like to DX the FM dial for just my state of Michigan. But, I like to find where the transmitters are located and then take a "Sunday Drive" with my wife to see them in person or if we're on a vacation trip, if the location is further away, as we frequently vacation in our state.
Kind of kookie, I know... Never said I was normal at all! ;)
I was wondering, anyone of our group care to share a "niche" aspect of the DX'ing hobby that they enjoy?
If we share the more subtle aspects of our hobby, it just might give someone else a cool idea on how to further enjoy this fun hobby.
Just sharing with the group! Happy *almost* New Year!
