Mon 150éme pays sur HamSphere 4.0 merci a 172HS128 Karmo !

My 150 countrie confirmed by qsl card on HamSphere 4.0 in 16 months of strong activity

I work this 150 countries in 16 months
How to make a good contact with a DXpedition or a most wanted country on HamSphere 4.0

The really most important things to do for make a good QSO with any DXpeditions) are:
- Listen Listen Listen
- Make short calls (2 times your callsign in a row, no more) !!!
- Listen Listen Listen
- Never repeat the callsign of the DX , everyone know it, including the DX opérator!!!
- Listen Listen Listen
- When the DX operator ask for a specific station or prefix or region or country, if you are not concerned, you MUST WAIT!!!
- Listen Listen Listen
- NEVER overmodulate a QSO in progress !!!
- Listen Listen Listen
- Be as fast as possible to give the chance to all others operators because you are not the only one that want to contact a new one!!!
When the DX call you: give only a report and give back the microphone to the DX, he know is name and call sign, you dont need to give your QTH, name, etc...
- Listen Listen Listen
- Do not comment or make the policeman on DX frequency, it make only QRM and it help nobody!!!
- Listen Listen Listen
- Do not forget that the DXpedition) has often a delay of several seconds in reception because of a bad internet connection!!!
- Listen Listen Listen
- Never make a 2nd contact for complain about the qsl not already received!!!
- Listen Listen Listen
If everyone follows these few basic rules for a contact with a DXpedition, it will be easy for the DX station to make 60-70 qso (or more) per hour and not just 25-30 qso per hour like it is currently the case due to bad behavior of some bulldozers...
And don’t forget: Listen Listen Listen !!!
Good luck for all your next contact with a DXpedition or a most wanted
