You’ll Find DX Engineering Just About Everywhere—Shrinking the Globe

One of the cool things about DX Engineering is the company’s reach around the globe. While based in the U.S., friends of the Ohio-headquartered business can be found just about everywhere on the map, from New Zealand to Chile, the Middle East to the Far East.

We could fill a hundred scrapbooks with photos of operators who have proudly displayed DX Engineering stickers in their stations and worn ball caps with the familiar red and black DXE logo. And when there’s a major DXpedition operating from one of the remote corners of the planet, you can rest assured that DX Engineering equipment will be there so hams like you can move one step closer to working the world.

A sampling of viewers from recent DX Engineering Facebook Live shows provides a window into the company’s international flavor, while also displaying a microcosm of the global nature of amateur radio. To name a few, we welcomed viewers from Brazil, Anguilla Island, Bavaria, Iceland, Germany, Denmark, British Columbia, Costa Rica, India, Philippines, Holland, Poland, Puerto Rico, Qatar, South Africa, Thailand, and Scotland.

As licensed operators, it’s important to remember that one of the tenets of ham radio cited in the FCC guidelines is its “unique ability to enhance international goodwill,” something DX Engineering puts into practice every day—whether we’re shipping products as quickly as possible throughout the world, helping a new station get up to speed, or providing easily accessible online education on Facebook and our YouTube channel.

Several years ago, DX Engineering contributed equipment that was instrumental in helping members of the Ethiopian Amateur Radio Society prepare the ET3AA station for participation in Youngsters on the Air (YOTA) activities. ET3AA is located at the Addis Ababa University of Technology. Ken Claerbout, K4ZW, and Bob Johnson, W9XY, had traveled there for YOTA Month in December 2018 to help out with station projects and get operators on the air as ET3YOTA (QSL card below).

In June we received word that ET3AA is going strong, handing out plenty of QSOs after installing a new 6-meter beam.

We recently received the photos below from hams at an overseas U.S. military base using products from DX Engineering.
