Portable Ultralight Radio DXing Session - Devonport Bluff - 01/01/2019


Paul Blundell
 

Today my wife and I, our two kids and two of their cousins went for a drive down to Devonport to visit the bluff play ground and for some lunch. I brought along my portable Ultralight radio DXing kit and took the chance to undertake some DXing from this location. I found a spot on the shore of the river, near where it joins Bass Straight and set up there. 


This location is on the North West Coast which has a good take off to the mainland. The closest AM station is 7AD on 900kHz (as a side note, they have confirmed they are moving to FM in 2019). My loggings were outstanding with this location allowing a couple of new stations to be logged for the first time (see loggings below).


Overall this was an enjoyable way to spend half an hour around lunch time on a Summers day and to undertake my first portable Ultralight Radio DXing session for 2019.
