Grayland on November 2-- Stock Sangean DT-400W Ultralight Receives 22 TP's


Gary DeBock
 

Hello Guys,
 
     As John Bryant, Allen Willie and others have discovered, it's a supreme Ultralight thrill to receive multiple TP's or TA's with a tiny radio in the palm of your hand.  With fantastic conditions on November 2, and in an isolated environment without any locals, the DT-400W's great stock sensitivity was really able to shine.  TP's from Japan, both Koreas, China, Russia, Taiwan, the Marshall Islands, Vietnam and Thailand all came in on the tiny yellow Ultralight, providing one of the most thrilling DX sessions ever experienced by this pocket radio fanatic.
     The stock E100 was also taken along, but since the DT-400W has a decided sensitivity edge on the lower frequencies, it was the stock Ultralight of choice during the phenomenal DX conditions.  The experience was unforgettable, and I wish that you all could have been there.  Here are the loggings:
