Re: I'm here.......anyone signed up yet??? New ULR Arrived today too!!!!
Good morning all!toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
just to say 'hello' to the group.
I am not good at logging, but two receptions with a SFR-59 were really nice
and memorable to me:
2006-07-08 0851 Netherlands Antilles - TWR 800KHz (R Transmudial in SS and
PP). Heard PP id in my apartment in Porto Alegre (30S 51W). ''Barefoot
mode''. SINPO 32322.
2005-11-14 0600 Virgin Islands - WDHP 1620KHz. An fulll hour of nice jazz
music. Heard in Ilha Comprida beach in southeast Brazil (25S 48W). Used an
auxiliary external ferrite antena called 'RGP3'. SINPO 43333.
Both were head about 2 or 3 years ago. The distance was ~ 3200 miles/5100km.
One can say those are not really difficult (TWR runs 500-600KW, reception at
beach is wonderful), but they were really distant-receptions :)
Porto Alegre, Brazil
