DX-World.net is a free-to-read, non-subscription DX news service mainly for DXers and IOTA enthusiasts. In actual fact it’s a resource most other DX news outlets use and we’re proud not to charge anyone a single cent to read. Our remit is quite simple: Publish DX news and snippets for all with no strings attached.
Now running for over 9 years (initially under a different name), DX-World has grown in stature since 2007, reaching a truly global audience.
We reached over 6M pageviews during 2015. Double the previous year. Thanks a lot for reading and trusting us!
DX-World is not a money making project; nor do our lives or livelihood depend on it. Rather, it’s a not-for-profit adventure which can sometimes result in various DXpeditions receiving a small grant through an advertising campaign set up in 2012.
Another remit we have is to publish at least one DX news item daily. If we don’t, we feel quite bad about this! Since 2007 we believe daily publications have taken place on site; in other words, to date, that’s over 3500 continuous days with some form of DX news published, including every weekend. A lot of man hours and work. On average 3 or 4 DX posts are published per day, very often with Breaking DX News.
Our sources are few. We do the work so others use the content for free.
Sometimes we ask only for a small credit if a picture or text has been used with obvious DX-World writing or markings. We’re not big on demanding a copyright here, there or everywhere, but considering a large amount of Breaking DX news is first published on DX-World, it’s only reasonable that some form of credit is given.
We’ve come a long way since 2007 often seeing new or alternative DX news publications appear. We don’t know what the next 9 years will bring, but it’s my hope to write a similar passage to this in 2024!
Although not sought, personal donations are always gratefully received. A big thank you to those who have previously donated – it’s much appreciated.

PS: I often wonder how many DXpedition donators read DX-World firstly before deciding to contribute their hard earned money to a particular project. Equally, I’m curious if DXpeditions realise where some of their donations originate from – for sure VP8STI know!
