Puyallup, WA TP's for 10-25-- Four Barefoot Ultralight TP's
The Fall Follies contest will certainly have some serious distance mileage complied by the Northwest TP-chasing group, unlike the March Sprint contest.
With fairly decent conditions here, the usual powerhouses were booming in, providing solid loggings on a stock Sangean DT-400W of JOAK-594 (141`7 UTC), JOIB-747 1431), JOBB-828 (1419) and HLCA-972 (1433). The big distance prizes, Thailand -1575 and Vietnam-675, were below the Sangean's audio threshold level, however. Somebody at Grayland probably could have logged them easily.
The fully modified (Slider + Murata IF filter) E100 had no new TP's logged this morning, but with 50 received already, they are becoming more challenging. With KHHO-850 IBOC silent again, 837 had weak audio on the 30" loopstick ICF-2010 (presumed NHK1), but not on the E100. HLKR-864 had a decent signal again on both radios, and at 1410, JOHK-891 was the strongest it has been all season.
Hopefully these productive conditions will continue throughout the Ultralight DX contest.
