I think one has to take a couple of things into account here. First is that the majority of us on this list ( or any list for that matter ) don't know what DX is like from your location. Second is that some tend to apply their own "DX standards" to everyone else. Therefore there are always going to be those who doubt a reception.


Another factor is what details a DX'er provides. Not infrequently the way a DX'er words their report can open the door to doubters. And the first thing in that list is how reporting of a het is worded.


At one time or another, probably most of us on this list have doubted others' logs or have been doubted ourselves. It comes with the territory. A DX'er has to establish their own criteria and to DX for themselves in that sense.

Back in the 80's 891 and 1521 were always in together right after Sunset
night after night. The same holds true today. Right after sunset, if 890 is
getting a banging het from 891, I check 530, 550 and 710 and each and every
time all have hets on them from 531, 549, and 711 always in semi au cx and
barefoot, not once, but 5 times this season under semi au cx then I believe
I've got a strong chance that this won't be Europe. Europe, barefoot, has
not been in well for me this year 1000, I've not hear absolute radio at all
this year on 1215 nor France on 1206. Please also do not forget that George
Sherman and Mike Bates were on top of TA propagation for many years and
they taught me a lot of the nuances. So in conclusion I do believe I can
say that this is a no brainer unless I had a KAZ antenna. If I had a nice
terminated, directional antenna then things would get more complicated. But
I do not.

So I usually keep my thoughts, and my catches to myself because some people
on here seem to think I report fake dx. It's been done on here...publicly.
And I not once EVER received an apology for it.

Basically no brainer hets but you need to hear audio that you can at least
tell is Arabic. Note that these aren't completely no brainers. Saudi fades
out not much after 0300 and I've logged Spain from both IL and WI. I've
also logged Portugal and 891 from my WI site which can be super good for
low/mid band to Iberia.
