Newfoundland Ultralight Radio Trans-Atlantics & Domestics Report Aug 28

Allen Willie

Greetings to All from the "Hope" for DX

Our thoughts today are with the folks in the areas affected by the hurricane and we wish them safety from all harm and pending danger.

Good propagation conditions continue heading towards September here in the North Atlantic. We are really looking forward to the new fall DX season.

So much so that we have two more Ultralight radios ordered and soon to arrive, first of all the Sangean DT-400W and another Sony, namely the SRF-M37W. As many of our Ultralight Dxers in the group can attest to, it's always nice to have some backup units on hand as well.
