Hello To All,

We have finally moved to our new location at Bristol's Hope, Newfoundland which is located about 70 miles by highway Northwest from St. John's. The home features a wrap around deck which overlooks the ocean , as well a large shed up the hill from the house. The isolated location has already proven to be an excellent DX spot, as the first few evenings here have provided the following station loggings with both nights yielding a multitude of Trans-Atlantic signals. At least 8 new stations were logged in the first two evenings of Dxing amongst all the ongoing unpacking.
