Very nice recording, Horatio! The SRF-59 sounds like a great ULR. I have the Eton E100, but may have to buy a SRF-59.

Subject: [ultralightdx] Paraguay nulled against local SODRE. My first audio recording with my SRF - 59

Today,  I posted in ConDig list YG, the reflector where DXers in S. Am (and also other Spanish speaking people) gather, a rather illustrative report in Spanish about ULR (taking material from DXers.CA and referring my experiences with my new SRF - 59.

Several people there got very interested. A DX buddy, who also lives in Montevideo, Uruguay, OM Moisés Knochen, was a little skeptical (humourously) about this fabulous receiver and challenged me to try to null 650 Clásica (SODRE), Montevideo (listed 50/25 KW in WRTH'08 ) and thus get ZP4 Radio Uno in Asunción, Paraguay. To the moment this was possible only by getting out of the city some kilometers away, something we discovered  several months ago, when we gathered with a couple of distinguished Argentinian DXers (namely Arnaldo Slaen and Hector Goyena) at Victor Castaño's (another Uruguayan DXer) nice house 20 km East of Montevideo downtown, using our DE1103's.

Success!! Tried and worked... not only the reception was possible but it was also recorded in mp3, being my first audio document with ULR.

In the first couple of seconds in the recording  the classical music wipes out when I try to find direction and suddenly, magically it appears the voice of R. Uno's host Ms. Gabriela León, with a telephone call to local police HQ's in Asunción.

PARAGUAY 650 ZP4 R. Uno, Asunción, 2325 on Mar 4. Nulling CX6 Clasica, SODRE powerhouse in Montevideo. (Nigro - Uruguay, SRF-  59, barefoot).

Here's the link for the audio...

Very happy... now for the TA's!!!...
