Ultralight Longwave DX-- Three New NDB's


Gary DeBock
 

Hello All,

Beacon-chasing results here last night were closer to Rob's version
than Steve's, with a slight drop off noted in signals from the east. Three relatively close new beacons showed up on the 7.5" LW plug-in
loopstick PL-380 in the snowy back yard, though: 219-OMK (WA), 225-LWG
(OR), and 362-6T (AB). Because of local noise it's becoming necessary
to get out of the warm, comfortable house to have much luck at finding
new beacons, but of course this is all part of the charm and challenge
of chasing NDB's on a tiny pocket radio. Those of you considering a
jump onto the Beacon Bandwagon are advised to stock up on warm
clothing, before taking the plunge :-)

Current LW beacon totals are 129 stations in 9 states and 7 provinces.
Congratulations to Steve for receiving the 2 Quebec beacons, for a new
Province.

73, Gary DeBock (in Puyallup, WA, USA)
