Re: I am (not) skeptical

I have several frequencies in my UL log where I have 10 or more stations logged, including 850, 920, 1260, 1310, 1320, 1340, 1370, 1390, 1480, 1490, 1550, so there is no reason for any kind of skepticism. 

Part of it comes down to honor and trust.  There is an honor code among DXers, that we have actually heard what we claimed to.  I have logged 908 AM stations overall, 697 on ultralights and 511 FM stations.  Y'all will just have to trust me on that unless I give you a reason not to.  And I promise to return the favor for everyone else.

Hi Neil,
Thanks for sharing your impression.
Ultralight radio DXing is actually capable of producing overall results above and beyond those from table receivers, because of the unique ability of these tiny receivers to null out nearby pest stations. The most successful domestic DXers in our group tend to chase new stations with the Sony SRF-T615, a tiny radio with amazing nulling abilities.When you can null out local stations and wait out the best propagation openings, you would be amazed at the variety of stations that can be received.
Also, the Ultralightdx Yahoo group has had a long tradition of avoiding "flame" postings, primarily because of our close-knit core group (that has always shown mutual courtesy and respect). This concept has occasionally been tested by new members, but I'm sure that the vast majority of our membership respect each other, and our goal of working together to transform the MW-DXing hobby.

In looking at some loggers with 300-400-500 stations and sometimes 10 co-channel stations I find it hard to believe unless the individual does a lot of traveling. 10 co-channel station from one location and all barefoot?? Very unlikely!

Logs are only meaningful when the listening location is recorded in the logs.

I will probably get flames from this post...
