Re: Committee Announces New Ultralight MW DXing Awards Program

John H. Bryant <bjohnorcas@...>


Any loggings on a recognized Ultralight count for Awards, etc....  If some loggings are on a Barefoot Ultralight and some on a modified unit, you can either lump them all together for "Unlimited Class" Awards or keep two separate lists.... one for Barefoot and one for Unlimited. But.... if some are on an unmodified SRF-39 and others are on an unmodified SRF-59. for instance, you're certainly allowed to lump them all together in the Barefoot category.

Thanks for asking!

Hello Everybody,
Just as a point of clarification on this awards program, do all loggings have to be on the same receiver (e.g. SRF-59) or will all loggings from any approved ULR receiver count?
I have been tied up with RACES/ARES work for the last 4 months, and am looking forward to spending some quality time with both my SRF-59 and my SRF-39 (tnx to Gary) in the very near future.
And as a last open comment to Gary, since you are practically neighbors with Ward Silver N0AX, I think you should invite him over to enlighten him on our exploits.

The Ultralight DXing Awards Committee is pleased to announce a new and on-going Awards Program for the Ultralight MW DXing Community.  The Program is unique in several respects; first, it is the only Awards Program that is restricted to MW DXing accomplishments achieved with commonly available, inexpensive, entertainment-grade "Ultralight" pocket radios.  Secondly, the program is totally web-based.  Applications for awards are accepted by e-mail only and award certificates that are suitable for framing are distributed to the recipients as printable digital image files.  Thirdly, these certificates feature digitally re-mastered images of some of the most remarkable radio art from the first decade of broadcast radio.
The comprehensive Ultralight DX Awards Program features awards at various levels for Stations Heard, U.S. States Heard, Canadian Provinces Heard, Latin American Stations Heard, Trans-Atlantic Stations Heard, Trans-Pacific Stations Heard, Countries Heard and Continents Heard.  In each category, when a DXer reaches beyond what is normally considered high achievement, special "Master DXer" certificates are awarded;  for instance, in the Stations Heard category, certificates are available for stations heard at the 100, 200, 300, etc. station levels.  At 500 stations heard on an Ultralight receiver, an extraordinary achievement, a "Master Ultralight DXer Award" is conferred.
A complete description of the Ultralight DX Awards Program is available for download from the Ultralight Files area at or directly from Rob Ross of the Awards Committee at va3sw@...
If you have yet to experience the renewed thrill of DXing with an inexpensive Ultralight receiver, we invite you to share the excitement and satisfaction that comes from success in pocket radio DX.  Emphasizing DXing skill and knowledge over equipment innovation, Ultralight Radio DXing brings special rewards in proportion to the special challenges-- and has restored the original thrill of AM DXing to many radio enthusiasts.  The Ultralight Files area of has an extensive set of information and resources on the many aspects of Ultralight Radios, and enthusiasts' activities.  We hope you will accept the challenge, join in the fun, and share in the rewards!
The Ultralight DX Awards Committee:  Gary DeBock,  Rob Ross and John Bryant
