The new “My DX Summit” (MDXS) website will go live on November 21 at 1000 UTC. MDXS will replace the current “DX Summit” website, but the URL will be the same, and the transition should be seamless. The new site design, which incorporates a number of features — including a handy propagation tool — has been undergoing some beta testing and last-minute tweaking over the past few weeks.

“Predicted propagation is based on your personal location, and by clicking a DX spot you will see the current conditions and a 24-hour window covering all bands from your station, short and long path, to a distant DX location,” Radio Arcala said in announcing the changeover. “This recent facelift makes several new functions readily available, assuring a pleasant user experience.” The new site has been designed to support mobile devices.

DX Summit came into being in 1998 and won the Yasme Foundation Excellence Award. Plans are underway to integrate MDXS into January’s K1N Navassa Island DXpedition.

“We at Radio Arcala wish to thank the more than 500 individuals who were our test partners and provided exciting ideas for our future endeavors to make MDXS a DX competence center of the future,” the announcement continued. Some 135,000 unique users visit DX Summit each month.

Ken Claerbout, K4ZW, is scheduled to host an early December webinar with Radio Arcala specialists to explain MDXS basics as well as the propagation prediction tools. The time and date will be announced.

Radio Arcala added that Santa Claus will appear on the MDXS portal in December before embarking on his world tour. “By sending a maximum number of spots during the first 14 days, three winners will be visited by Santa Claus with a certificate from the OHo-Ho-Ho land of Radio Arcala, OH8X,” the announcement said.
