Hi Guys:

Well....it is with Great pleasure that I announce I have Logged my FIRST
Trans-Atlantic AM BCB Station on an Ultralight Radio this evening.

From 1915 to 1948 EST I had a Nice reception of Hrvatski Radio from ZADAR
CROATIA on 1134 Khz.

This was logged on my Brand New ETON E-100 SLIDER Ultralight that just
arrived in the mail earlier this afternoon from the West
Coast Modification Team of Steve Ratzlaff and John Bryant with some
Coaching from Gary Debock.

I saw on the Reflectors that this was a good evening for
Trans-Atlantics...so I thought what better time to try it out....the first
place I looked was 1134 Khz...as I have heard this before on the BIG Radios
, and knew it does a good job into Ontario when the band is good.

So...thanks to the efforts of the above mentioned DX'ers who were
instrumental in me obtaining this Ultralight DX Monster Machine...I present
my logging......
