Medium wave DXing Report - Launceston Tasmania

Date: 21/11/2015

Time: 16:45 – 17:30 local 

Location: Punchbowl Reserve

Radio: Tecsun PL-360 / AR1748

Total medium wave stations logged: 28

New medium wave stations logged: 0

Notes: Late yesterday afternoon my wife, daughter and I headed to the Punchbowl reserve for a BBQ picnic; I also took along my radio DX kit. While my wife was cooking some sausages I watched our daughter playing and undertook a portable DXing session. In the 45 minutes I was setup I logged 28 medium wave stations, these were logged on a mix of my stock Tecsun PL-360 and AR1748. The lower half of the band produced results as I would have expected with all my “normal” day time ground wave stations being received at fair to good signal levels. My real shock was 2RN on 1512KHz, this station came out of the noise towards the end of this DXing session with very weak radio national. This was received on my AR1748, both my PL360 and AR1733 didn’t show any trace of a signal at this time.

Overall this was a very enjoyable session at this location. With our move to the other side of the city shortly I suspect I won’t be able to get back to this location in the near future. Below is a full list oif the stations I logged.
