The MyDXSummit homepage lists DXers posting radio stations for others to find. Other information available on each station includes the radio frequency, country of origin and the Spotter. Users can also search for radio stations by mode, frequency and type. Countries of origin include the United States, Colombia, Uruguay, Russia and Israel.

By clicking on an individual DX, or Spotter, users can establish contact with or to listen to the radio station of that DX or Spotter. Clicking on one of these links may take a viewer away from the MyDXSummit website. If redirected to another website, users may need to create an account to continue. One link provides a map that draws a line between the views location and that of the amateur radio operator, whether it is the DX or Spotter.

The MyDXSummit webpage also offers tutorials on amateur radio operation, press releases and news about website updates, and tourist information about Azores, the physical location of DX Summit headquarters.
