What is a "DXer" by the way? and what is DXing?

DXing means listening to Distant Transmissions(DX), and the one who does it is called a DXer :p
a REALLY intriguing world out there in the sky i must say!

In India dxers are plagued by shortage of good radio. Even the dogged ones became doggone!

A very good radio for dxing is available in the market. The model is Kaito KA1102 or Degen DE1102 made in China. It is much better than the Sonys of that size.

How much do they cost? And do they have "line out" so that it can be connected to existing setup.

Please search in the ebay. They should not cost more than 5k. Another good addition to the receiver list is redsun 2100. Yeah! The receivers have line-out female jacks. Then there are good and active groups in yahoo as well as google.
