Re: Modified E100 South Pacific DX mp3's
Gary, Great going with those super catches! I will have to check out the recordings. That was quite a feat and must have been a lot of fun.
I look forward to getting closer to the coast again...I am in St. Louis right now. ;^)

Subject: [ultralightdx] Modified E100 South Pacific DX mp3's
The modified E100 (with a 7.5" slider loopstick and narrow filter) really provided some excitement in Grayland, WA on July 31st, receiving Fiji-639, Tonga-1017, 2ZB-1035 in New Zealand, and KPUA-670 in Hawaii. I wish that all of you could have experienced the fun of chasing Ultralight South Pacific DX on an exceptional morning!
Uploaded to the Ultralightdx group site were a couple of mp3's from that superb session, of Fiji-639 and 2ZB-1035. The Fiji-639 mp3 starts off with a marginal mumbling ID in Pidgin English, but quickly gets stronger with Polynesian choral music. The 2ZB-1035 mp3 was my first recorded ID from New Zealand, despite hearing 2YA-567 and 2YC-657 many times with sleep-inducing EZL music.
John Bryant had already received all of these stations with an E100 hooked up to his 4-element Wellbrook Array, but I doubt that he had as much fun as I did, using a 7.5" slider loopstick at a picnic table :>)
