What would be a good group recommendation for discussion and loggings related to those radios that would not be considered Ultralight?Johnny,
Any loggings or information concerning non-Ultralight live DXing portables is welcome on this site. I am the Owner/ Moderator of the group, so I should know :-)
My recent 2021 Ultralight Radio Shootout article included 7 pages on the non-Ultralight XHDATA D-808 model, and I have used that model (as well as the CC Skywave) during all my ocean cliff DXpeditions for the past two years. Do I lose any sleep because the model isn't an "official" Ultralight? No.
"Official" Ultralight status is relevant only to the Awards and DXing Records programs, both of which have been in limo for years because of a lack of volunteers. Use whatever portable you feel comfortable with, and enjoy live DXing (and life) any way you wish.
