Re: 531 kHz Australians' S9+ Shootout at 11,700 km



Thank you for your offer of one of your latest 6 inch FSLs!! Given that the 5 inch “Frequent Flyer” FSL is proven to be no slouch, I can’t wait to try the 6 inch FSL!!

Thanks & 73,

How wild is ocean cliff DXing? Well, here is a minor sample. At 1415 UTC on March 3rd a 6 inch (15cm) FSL antenna set up on the Rockwork 2 plunging cliff near Manzanita, Oregon (USA) tracked down 531-4KZ (with an oldies format) and 531-2PM (with a "talker" format) in an S9+ snarl at 11,700 km across the Pacific Ocean (7,250 miles). This was on a 7.5 inch loopstick XHDATA D-808, set up on the ocean cliff as shown in the attached photo taken during the same sunrise session. Wacky!
