Jorge, según yo, tienes razón en
todo lo que dices...

I have been thinking for some time that it might be time for our
uldx clan to widen its parameters.
Alongside a uldx-defined tiny
receiver, a (much larger, heavy,
kinda queries the notion of "ultralight".
The Americas still have many AM broadcasters; in Europe few are
left, and more are closing down.
What think ye, brethren?

I wanted to propose something
that could give us, in my opinion, new ways for the hobby and
maybe the group. I finished my 'Ross DX Challenge' with more
than 400 stations heard (but 378 identified), >posted
but as I used my DEGEN DE1103 which is about 28 squared
inches, 'technically' I do not deserve it. I did not have an
ULR at the time being, and after that I got a couple of them
and I am testing with them. Additionally we have been
promoting the ULR DXing and the first FSL anteena is on the
way, as you probably know.
Here in Europe we are not as
used in North America or in Oz to listen to the radio with
small pocket radios and most of the people has small portables
but slightly bigger in size than ULRs.
I told Gary that probably we
could stamp on the award the portable model used, so we could
repeat the Challenge in the future with another model. Here in
Europe we use portable receivers as big as 30 squared inches
and in fact the Challenge remain the same, as the limiting
factors are the noise, the power stations and of course the
propagation. So, trying to promote the hobby... Would have any
problem to extend the portable size to 30 sq. inches? Or maybe
we may add a new category to allow bigger portables up to 30
sq. inches, for instance?
On the other side I would
like to help by translating the new coming 'ULR' list document
into Spanish to spread their use and help to promote this
outstanding side of DXing.
73 y saludos.
