Welcome to ultralightdx! You mentioned needing a comprehensive list of broadcast band stations.... I'd been meaning to write to you about that. My favorite web site is http://topazdesigns.com/ambc/ THat is a two part site.... on the right-hand side, you can search a particular frequency for call letters (including a nice "fuzzy search" feature) or you can search a particular frequency by format of the broadcast. On the left-hand side, you can put your home geo coordinates into the blanks (just have to enter once) and then type in the call letters.... searches every frequency for the station, gives you all sorts of info on the station and the distance from you to them, etc.
Another good one is http://www.radio-locator.com/
A third one that is a more conventional listing, and very good, is http://www.amlogbook.com/
Then you have to start looking for individual countries. You can google Fred Cantu's site for Mexicans and Bruce Conti has an EXCELLENT Cuban list.
There may be other resources out there that other members could suggest. Perhaps we should put these things in the Links section of our website. I know that there are some amateur radio operators interested in ultralighting and they are probably like Kirk.... relying on memories that are 20 or 30 years old, as far as BCB DXing is concerned.
Anyone else out there with suggestions?
