Subject: [ultralightdx] DX Logs from SW Ohio

Last night the first of hopefully many MONIX DX sessions was held in
the shelter area at the beach at Caesar Creek State Park, near
Waynesville, Ohio. Our geographical coordinates were:

N 39-30-48.4
W 084-01-13.7
Elevation 847 feet

We had four members present. Dan Schwartz, Dave Williams (N8DHW), Alex Kaminski,
and myself. Two were DXing, two were learning the ropes and helping to spot.

Alex (N8UCN) and myself (N8ICW) were doing the main DXing which started
just after 6:00 PM.

Both of us were using ultralight radios. Alex was using the Sony SRF-M37V.
I was using my newly acquired Sony SRF-59, I was also using my
GE Superadio II and Grundig YB400PE as spotting receivers.
No special antennas were utilized.
