I am close to 200 stations logged since i moved here to Tennessee.I
started my log here Oct.8,2008.If i can get moved into our new home
we are buying here in Tennessee soon enough,i might try for 300 or at
least 250 by the end of this year.We are moving soon to
Maryville,Tn.This will probably be my last post from Walland.

Hi Guys:

After a 2 Day Drought with no New Stations heard with the
ULR's......I
managed to squeak out 2 New Stations today at Sunset!!

As I continue my march toward Station # 600 on the ULR's....I find
myself
needing 37 More stations...with just 31 more days to go....if I
want to
accomplish this feat in my First Year of Ultralight DX'ing!! I
began my ULR
Career on JAN/01/2008.....just after Midnight!!

In order to hear #600 by the end of December....I think I'm going
to need a
few CHEERLEADERS from the ULR Ranks .......as I need to hear at
least
1.1935 Stations Per Day.....every day til the end of the year. A
few
hundred stations ago..that would have been NO Problem...but as I
near #
600...I am finding that it is very difficult to hear a New One
EVERY DAY!!
Like I said...I just went 2 Days...with Nothing heard!!

So.......when you go to bed tonight...say a Prayer for me..and if I
get
real lucky and accomplish this feat.....you'll know that you
helped!!
HAHHAA.... Luckily I have 11 Days off work, Leading up to and
Including
Christmas ......so hopefully I can dedicate some Sunset and Sunrise
time to
some serious listening then !! I'm gonna give this a college
try....but
It's gonna be tough!!


Radio used tonight was.........SONY SRF-T615 with 2 1/2 Foot
Homebrew
Tuneable Box Loop
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

ULR LOG TOTALS are now..............563 Stations Heard
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
