4 DX University – Visalia DXU – Bryce Canyon, UT 2012 Enter slide title here Introduction… Where to call How to call and How to make a good QSO

5 DX University – Visalia DXU – Bryce Canyon, UT 2012 Enter slide title here What is a pileup?

6 DX University – Visalia DXU – Bryce Canyon, UT 2012 Enter slide title here Introduction… No Pileup? No Problem Big Pileup! Challenge!

7 DX University – Visalia DXU – Bryce Canyon, UT 2012 Wayne Mills N7NG Were told to listen… Not just listening…but… What to listen to?

8 DX University – Visalia DXU – Bryce Canyon, UT 2012 Wayne Mills N7NG The Responsibility of the DX operator is Fairness and Consistency

9 DX University – Visalia DXU – Bryce Canyon, UT 2012 Wayne Mills N7NG The DXer’s Responsibility is Following instructions Basic courtesy

10 DX University – Visalia DXU – Bryce Canyon, UT 2012 Wayne Mills N7NG Locate the DX per Bob, W9KNI (Excellent pubs) DX station’s call – Correct? Reasonable propagation?

11 DX University – Visalia DXU – Bryce Canyon, UT 2012 Wayne Mills N7NG The “Phase” of the operation? Early, Midway or Late? (I, II, III) Chances of making a QSO?

12 DX University – Visalia DXU – Bryce Canyon, UT 2012 Wayne Mills N7NG Understand the Pileup: DX working split? Transmitting on the DX Frequency? Learn how to use your radio!

13 DX University – Visalia DXU – Bryce Canyon, UT 2012 Wayne Mills N7NG Define the Pileup: Limits of the pileup? Lowest Frequency? – Highest Frequency?

14 DX University – Visalia DXU – Bryce Canyon, UT 2012 Wayne Mills N7NG Where is station being worked? Listening with a wide bandwidth Find the station he’s working

15 DX University – Visalia DXU – Bryce Canyon, UT 2012 Wayne Mills N7NG Where to call next? (Probably NOT zero beat)

16 DX University – Visalia DXU – Bryce Canyon, UT 2012 Wayne Mills N7NG Tuning Pattern Listen and Tune to find out

17 DX University – Visalia DXU – Bryce Canyon, UT 2012 Wayne Mills N7NG Pileup too dense? (Wait until later)

18 DX University – Visalia DXU – Bryce Canyon, UT 2012 Wayne Mills N7NG Don’t know where to call? Don’t sit on one spot and call endlessly Pick a relatively clear spot near the edges of the pileup(Wayne Gretsky Rule)

19 DX University – Visalia DXU – Bryce Canyon, UT 2012 Wayne Mills N7NG Can’t make it now? QRX until later

20 DX University – Visalia DXU – Bryce Canyon, UT 2012 Wayne Mills N7NG How to call… How many times should you call after each Q? Critical: Listening Between Calls

21 DX University – Visalia DXU – Bryce Canyon, UT 2012 Wayne Mills N7NG How to call: First In The delay Vary your technique

22 DX University – Visalia DXU – Bryce Canyon, UT 2012 Wayne Mills N7NG The QSO: Quick and “snappy” (No names necessary)

23 DX University – Visalia DXU – Bryce Canyon, UT 2012 Wayne Mills N7NG The QSO: Don’t repeat your call “QSL 5NN TU” on CW “QSL, Five Nine Thanks” on SSB

24 DX University – Visalia DXU – Bryce Canyon, UT 2012 Wayne Mills N7NG What should you expect from the DX OP? Is it reasonable? Insight:

25 DX University – Visalia DXU – Bryce Canyon, UT 2012 Wayne Mills N7NG Record examples of DXpeditions pileups: Both sides of the pileup Instructive Surprising

26 DX University – Visalia DXU – Bryce Canyon, UT 2012 Wayne Mills N7NG QRM on the DX Frequency Why? Might not be what you think European QRM might be different…

27 DX University – Visalia DXU – Bryce Canyon, UT 2012 Wayne Mills N7NG A good CW pileup? (Audio clips) A good SSB pileup? (Audio clips)

28 DX University – Visalia DXU – Bryce Canyon, UT 2012 Wayne Mills N7NG Phonetics Use Standard phonetics If the DX station is having difficulty: Vary your phonetics Use local names or locations

29 DX University – Visalia DXU – Bryce Canyon, UT 2012 Wayne Mills N7NG
