MM0TWX Pete Parisetti, Founder and CEO. After working one DXCC Honor Roll, 5BDXCC and 198 Zones from one country (IK2BHX), 309 countries and 160m DXCC from another country (HB9DSU), and making not far from 150,000 QSOs from a number of semi-rare DX locations, in 2014 I finally settled in my adopted home country of Scotland. Here, I have the fortune of living in an extraordinary place, a third-floor attic right above one of Scotland's most beautiful beaches. The downside is that every year we get formidable North Atlantic storms, with winds in excess of 120 Km/h. I am therefore limited to a single, 8 m vertical on the roof, with elevate radials, which I tune in the shack for 40 m and above. As a die-hard DX hunter/gatherer, however, I do not intend to give up. I keep pursuing a cutting-edge, competitive DXing activity with goal of working the DXCC Honor Roll and 2,000 band points using a single antenna and CW only. I believe this is hard, but achievable. I do this for my own enjoyment, and to demonstrate - as many have done before me - that a top-level DX activity is possible with absolutely ordinary means. Since June 2014, I have worked 294 DXCC and 1,713 band points. I am a proud member of the High Speed Club.
OK1RP Petr Ourednik, Onorary President. Petr has very kindly accepted to serve as the onorary, unelected President of the Club. Petr adds to the profile and credibility of the Club with an impressive record as a CW-only DXer – particularly on low bands - and membership in top Clubs such as FOC, VHSC and A-1 Operators, amongst many others.
DK3DUA Thomas Rudolph, Chief Technology Officer. Thomas loves to support Ham radio activities as an IT volunteer. He works for the DARC DCL Logbook and as manager for CW contests and of course TBDXC. He manages his own domain hamserver.de to host HAM related subdomains, including tbdxc.hamserver.de for TBDXC member management tools, member spot page, and support for events like the DX Ultra-Marathon. He has been an active radio amateur for over 45 years as listener or HAM, from 17.2 kHz up to 10 GHz, mostly using CW. Active member of CW clubs like FISTS, SKCC, AGCW and others. Likes to support DXpeditions. Member of NCDXF, CDXC, GDXF and others.
YO3HJV Adrian Florescu, Social Media Manager. Adrian has been building radios since the age of 14 and got his license in 1996. He recently got back to CW, which he finds excellent for low-bandwidth communication. He believes that our is a hobby of human contact and nothing is more pleasant to work on equipment and talk at the same time with another radio amateur on the other side of the Earth.
LB6GG Hans Ostnell, Marathon Manager. I've been a ham since December 1990, when I took my first license in Sweden and was assigned the callsign SM7TUG. Since day one I've been an avid CW-operator, even though I worked quite a number of SSB QSO's in the beginning of the 90's – especially on 10 meters – when conditions on that band were no less than awesome. My background is from the Swedish Navy, where I served as R/O, both on submarines and surface vessels. 20 years ago, I moved to Norway, and I was assigned LA2MOA as my first callsign. A couple of years ago, I changed it to LB6GG, which sounds better on CW and is much faster to key in contests and pile-up's. Besides being a proud member of The True Blue Dxers Club, I'm also a member of FOC (#2149) and CWOps (#2530). Me and my XYL currently live in Sviland, near Stavanger on the south west coast. Here I have a pretty good countryside QTH, almost free from local noise. My current main rig is an Icom IC-7700. Antennas are a 2x27 meter Doublet @15magl, an Inverted L for 40 and 30 meters, and since two months I also have a 2el SteppIR on the chimney, about 10magl. Do I work? Yes. I work as a coast radio operator at Norwegian Coast Radio South, formerly known as Rogaland Radio.
Over 1,700 TBDXC Members prove that
"human" DX most definitely still IS!
