Watch DXA! ( It is your most powerful tool for getting and confirming your QSO. Look for instructions and information from the team in the message box on the right side of the screen.

DXA Rule #1: If you see your call confirmed, do not call again and do not make insurance QSO—you are safely in the log.

DXA Rule #2: If you don’t see your call confirmed (and you know DXA is working), you should make another QSO immediately.
