Re: Try Something New This Winter!
Thanks for sharing your new ideas in analog ULR DXing-- and of course I wish you all the best in your challenging new pursuit.
Actually, John, considering the heavy local QRM that you face from East Coast pest stations, you have already done an amazing job to log 904 stations on your Ultralight radios. With the possible exception of Frank Welch in Massachusetts, nobody else has accomplished such a record while DXing in the Northeast "RF Alley." I had a brief taste of such conditions while DXing as a teenage sailor on a ship undergoing an overhaul at the South Boston (Charlestown) Naval Shipyard in 1972-- and have never forgotten that maze of splatter, whistles and mixes.
Good luck, John, and don't be surprised if your analog Ultralights provide a few a new stations for you!

Hey Gary,I am "retooling" my ULR DXing these days. Currently sitting at 904 ULR stations logged on various radios, I decided to go "back to basics" and have started a new log in just using analog ULRs- SRF59, WRX911, etc, barefoot. The "law of diminishing returns" kicks in eventualy and new logs are harder to get than ever. I've temporarily put away my PL310 and 380 with their digital readouts and am going back to see how I can do when I have to guess at the frequency on a basic set. I'm at 79 stations on this method right now after about 3 weeks.
