Coming soon to CQ Magazine-“Dxpeditions the Old Fashioned Way” Don Miller remembers-An Interview with Don Miller.

Posted: July 27, 2015 in Uncategorized


Don Miller on the cover of CQ Magazine, January, 1968.

In May, 2014, I met Don Miller, formerly W9WNV for the first time while at the Dayton Hamvention SWODXA DX Dinner. Don was very approachable and willing to chat with anyone. I had heard and read about him and I wanted to meet him.

Following that meeting, I contacted Don and asked if I could interview him for my Blog. I sense that Don was reluctant at first. He didn’t know who I was and I am not sure he was ready to trust me. We corresponded and had several meetings over the following year. It took a lot of patience and gentle convincing to make this project a reality.

Don was able to open up to me and share his life’s experiences, controversy and all. Nothing was off limits and I found Don to be a very intelligent and fascinating personality. I am proud to share this project and to see it published soon in two parts in CQ Magazine.

    Altho Don was a few yrs before I got into the DX scene, I’ve always been fascinated by his stories, along with Gus W4BPD, etc. To be honest, I can’t understand why guys risk their lives to provide us with a new notch on our “DX Belt” I look forward to reading your interview 73 Gary K7ZD

    Congratulations on getting the interview, Paul. After reading and hearing comments about Don ‘telling all’ when he appeared at Visalia earlier this year I was hoping someone would do an article. Thank you for picking up the ball. 73 es DX, Warren NW4C

    Hi Warren, I think it will be a fascinating read. We covered so many topics that the interview will now span two issues of CQ. Let me know what you think after it is published. Paul N6PSE

    Hi Mike, they sell CQ Magazine at the Ham Radio Outlet store in Sunnyvale.

    • Mike KJ4Z says:

      I dropped by HRO today and picked up a copy of CQ. Nice article. I look forward to the second part. Don has mentioned several times that he hopes to go on another DXpedition. I hope he gets the chance.

  5. n6pse says:

    Hi Mike-KJ4Z, Thank you for the compliment on the Don Miller interview. Part 2 will appear next more and delves into what Don calls his “mischief”.

    Best wishes,

    Paul N6PSE
