Actually, it has always been my understanding that the
"official" definition of what is a ULR is really only relevant
to the Awards.

In fact, if I may add to what Kevin said, the "official"
definition of what is a ULR is valid only for THIS GROUP. If you prefer
to use a tube boatanchor, or are interested in other bands besides MW and
FM, that's fine with us. I have seen discussions of a wide variety of
receiver- and antenna-related topics here.
It's just that the main focus of the group centers around DXing MW (and
to some extent FM) with pocket-sized, battery-powered radios.
> Thanks, Farmerik, and all who are joining this conversation. As Paul
mentioned, the question of "What Is An Ultralight, And Why?"
does come up from time to time here on the Group, including the status of
SSB capability, DSP filtering, etc. The criteria were developed a few
years ago, and in some ways are in fact somewhat arbitrary, but were
developed with a lot of care and attention, and are what they are. They
are in PDF from in "Folder 1 - Start Here" in the Files section
here if anyone wouild like to take a peek.
> Posts regarding why something should or should not be a defining
criterion is fine. I/we only ask that folks respect that those are in
fact the criteria that from the basis of the Group, and not belabor the
point or insist that the Definitions be changed to their individual way
of seeing things.

spammers!), whether or not they actually use an ULR, and hope that the
topics discussed here can benefit all radio enthusiasts.
