Some more "Midnight sun loggings"


Hans Ostnell
 

Hi all!


Yet two more evenings in the "DX-caravan", out of town, at the Barents Seashore. Some quite interesting loggings this time; RTA Kabul on 1107 kHz and again Radio Free Africa in Mwanza, Tanzania, came up with a very nice signal, to mention a few. Also a very interesting french speaking station on 1458, that might have been Mayotte - but that still has to be determined.


I'm getting more and more impressed by the performance of my 12" x 7.5" FSL, made by Everett Sharp. No less than three loop-coils in parallell on MW, gives this antenna a still unbeaten sensitivity, feeding my supercharged PL-380 / Skywave CC with plenty of "ooomph"! It's beating the Wellbrook ALA-1530 / ICF-2010 combo hands down every time! Just amazing!


This week I will have my yearly vacation, and go on summer holidays in the southern parts of Scandinavia. I will bring my UL-receivers and my Quantum QX loop (the FSL is too heavy and too delicate to bring on such a trip). I will update the group with new loggings from time to time, and internet-access of course.


Well, the log from the last weekend:
