The Antenna Restricted DX-er

by: Rick Borken, KØXB

Do you live where it’s hard to put up a good antenna? Have you been frustrated trying to work DX without a beam and tower? Do you want to maintain a low profile from your neighbors? We may have a solution for you.

Our speaker is Rick Borken K0XB, who is from Minnesota but lives in San Diego for part of the year.

He and his wife rent a small house on Coronado, in a dense neighborhood with a small back yard and no opportunity to put up a beam or anything permanent. However, he has successfully worked well over 200 countries and all 40 zones from this restricted location.

Learn the secrets of working DX with restricted antennas!

First licensed in 1961, Rick has had an Extra Class license since 1976. A retired physicist, he spent most of his career in the aerospace industry. He’s on the DXCC Honor Roll and is a member of the San Diego DX Club, as well as the Twin Cities DX Association and the Lake Vermilion DX Association.
