Guy's Farda reception was extraordinary, but
it is in Asia, so I think that you are the only Ultralighter in the NW with a
European logging. Anyone else???
So, Four Continents Heard,
At 05:47 PM 2/8/2009 -0500, you
Thanks very much for your
comments, and the extremely attractive TA DXer Award, an excellent example
of your creative design ability.
Thanks also for the comments about being the first NW Ultralighter to
receive four continents. Fellow Puyallup, WA resident Guy Atkins was
the first NW Ultralighter to receive a TA, however, with his unique
reception of Radio Farda-1575 on a barefoot SRF-39FP in Grayland, last
As anyone on the west coast
who tried for Croatia-1134 during the January opening will attest, the
signal was strong enough to be heard on almost any Ultralight, even a stock
SRF-59. Once in a great while, propagation seems to go completely
bananas, and DXing miracles occur.
and Thanks, Gary

- Gary DeBock logged Croatia 1134 on an Unlimited Class Ultralight
recently (after 0100 on January 25th, actually.) That makes him the first
NW Ultralighter to qualify as a Trans-Atlantic DXer!!! He received the
award certificate a few minutes ago.
- A couple of interesting points.... Rob and I think that logging
qualifies Gary for the Four Continents Heard award for Gary (Asia,
Oceania, North America and Europe,) but he forgot to apply for it.
He'll be the first Ultralighter in the Pacific NW to garner the Four
Continent award.... something that, frankly, I did not think was
possible. Also, Brandon Jordan (Memphis) and Gary logged 1134
Croatia virtually simultaneously, while located nearly 2000 miles apart.
Who would have thunk it???
- Congratulations Gary!!!
