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.
DL3NAA Peter Ackermann, Honorary President and Marathon Manager. I was introduced to Ham Radio very early by my fathe,r DL3II. First licensed in 1978 at age of 16 (VHF: DG2NM) and after passing the Morse test in 1981 I´m DL3NAA. I love CW very much (also member of HSC and VHSC), prefer using QRP and also like home brewing of HF-kits. Working in adult education as a teacher for refugees (German, application training for integration into the labor market). I joined the TBDXC because for me an important part of our hobby is communication between humans (The idea that a PC is taking away the enjoyment of my hobby is scary for me).

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.
Nearly 1,900 TBDXC Members prove that
"human" DX most definitely still IS!
