Newfoundland Ultralight Radio Trans-Atlantics & Domestics Report June 17-20

Allen Willie

Hello To All,

As the weekend approached yours truly on Friday June 17 had completed a wonderful 43 years in total in the radio Dxing hobby and hoping for many more ahead.

The Ultralight radio aspect of this has provided me the opportunity to make many new aquaintances as well as adding many new stations to my logbook not even heard on larger receivers in the past.

A year ago this past Friday I was fortunate to be able to DX from on top of Signal Hill,Newfoundland as a bit of celebration with the Ultralights. This year I decided to DX for 24 hours off and on for the day and see how many countries in total I could pull in using larger receivers with the Ultralight machines combined as well

Totals were 88 countries 18 US states and 7 Canadian provinces.

Here are some of the stronger stations heard on the Ultralight radios during the marathon as well as the remainder of the weekend. 1 new country (#80) on URL and station was added to the ULR log.
