In the early days of Amateur Radio DX ( distant or rare stations ) was a few hundred miles. As time past and technology improved DX became much longer distances finally crossing oceans at which point DX became contacting a station in a very rare location like an uninhabited island somewhere or another location very difficult to get to. Today I don't consider any of that as DX. What I now consider DX is contacting an Amateur Radio Station on another space body like a moon or planet the ultimate human accomplishment.
