2012 Cape Perpetua (Oregon) Cliff DXpedition Video


Gary DeBock
 

Hello All,

For those interested in the latest wacky idea to track down exotic
South Pacific DX on Ultralight radios, a brief video of the 400' high
Cape Perpetua ocean cliff site on Highway 101 in Oregon has been
uploaded to YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VZzBfstOXA4

Included in the video are the two fanatical DXpeditioners pushing their
luck this past week on the cliff (Norm Clark of Monmouth, Oregon and
yours truly), the 8" Medium Wave DXpedition FSL antenna on its 5' PVC
base, the new-design 7.5" MW loopstick Tecsun PL-380 Ultralight, and
scenery from the sheer ocean cliff site. The Spartan road side
conditions are on full display in this video, showing the lack of AC
power, running water, weather protection or adequate lighting. Despite
all these challenges the Medium Wave and Longwave DXpedition results
proved to be successful beyond all expectations, and a perfect cure for
DXing boredom for decades to come!

73 and Good DX,
Gary DeBock (now back in Puyallup, WA, USA)
