Marshall,

Welcome to the group.... we all hope that you'll enjoy this fellowship and find the niche hobby of Ultralight Radio to be the great fun that we do.

You asked a question about Nexxtech clock radio..... You are welcome, even encouraged to DX with any pocket radio that you wish, of course... this is an individual hobby and meant to be unadulterated fun for each of us.  However, as you indicated, if you wish to qualify for Ultralight MW DX Records, Awards or Contests, you do need to be using a radio that has been recognized as an "Ultralight" radio by our Definitions Committee. One of their criteria precludes devices of mulkti-use that also include a radio. (Flash light/ radio, recorder/radio, walking stick/radio, etc.)  I am not sure whether your "clock radio" falls under that criteria or not, since several recognized Ultralights contain a clock function.

The best thing that you could do is submit the Nexxtech receiver to the committee for review.... You'll need to submit manufacturers specs or manual as well as photo, dimensions, etc.... All of that info is likely contained in the Owners Manual (an on-line version?)  You could contact the Committee through Kevin Schanilec at
satya@... 

Be sure, too, and review the latest Shootout (Summer 2008) of the top Ultralights and other relevant files at the Ultralight Files area on dxer.ca.

I would like to publicly offer my congratulations to Rob on this outstanding achievement. Not only did he do this, but we had a huge tropospheric ducting opening about two weeks ago, and he even found the time for a QSO on the 2 meter band (we're about 100 miles apart, hi).
 
Job very done, Rob

Re: Committee Announces New Ultralight MW DXing Awards Program

John H. Bryant <bjohnorcas@...>
 

Joe,

Any loggings on a recognized Ultralight count for Awards, etc....  If some loggings are on a Barefoot Ultralight and some on a modified unit, you can either lump them all together for "Unlimited Class" Awards or keep two separate lists.... one for Barefoot and one for Unlimited. But.... if some are on an unmodified SRF-39 and others are on an unmodified SRF-59. for instance, you're certainly allowed to lump them all together in the Barefoot category.

Thanks for asking!

John B.

Hello Everybody,
 
Just as a point of clarification on this awards program, do all loggings have to be on the same receiver (e.g. SRF-59) or will all loggings from any approved ULR receiver count?
 
I have been tied up with RACES/ARES work for the last 4 months, and am looking forward to spending some quality time with both my SRF-59 and my SRF-39 (tnx to Gary) in the very near future.
 
And as a last open comment to Gary, since you are practically neighbors with Ward Silver N0AX, I think you should invite him over to enlighten him on our exploits.

Date: Tuesday, July 15, 2008, 1:34 AM

The Ultralight DXing Awards Committee is pleased to announce a new and on-going Awards Program for the Ultralight MW DXing Community.  The Program is unique in several respects; first, it is the only Awards Program that is restricted to MW DXing accomplishments achieved with commonly available, inexpensive, entertainment-grade "Ultralight" pocket radios.  Secondly, the program is totally web-based.  Applications for awards are accepted by e-mail only and award certificates that are suitable for framing are distributed to the recipients as printable digital image files.  Thirdly, these certificates feature digitally re-mastered images of some of the most remarkable radio art from the first decade of broadcast radio.
 
The comprehensive Ultralight DX Awards Program features awards at various levels for Stations Heard, U.S. States Heard, Canadian Provinces Heard, Latin American Stations Heard, Trans-Atlantic Stations Heard, Trans-Pacific Stations Heard, Countries Heard and Continents Heard.  In each category, when a DXer reaches beyond what is normally considered high achievement, special "Master DXer" certificates are awarded;  for instance, in the Stations Heard category, certificates are available for stations heard at the 100, 200, 300, etc. station levels.  At 500 stations heard on an Ultralight receiver, an extraordinary achievement, a "Master Ultralight DXer Award" is conferred.
 
A complete description of the Ultralight DX Awards Program is available for download from the Ultralight Files area at http://www.dxer.ca/ or directly from Rob Ross of the Awards Committee at va3sw@...
 
If you have yet to experience the renewed thrill of DXing with an inexpensive Ultralight receiver, we invite you to share the excitement and satisfaction that comes from success in pocket radio DX.  Emphasizing DXing skill and knowledge over equipment innovation, Ultralight Radio DXing brings special rewards in proportion to the special challenges-- and has restored the original thrill of AM DXing to many radio enthusiasts.  The Ultralight Files area of dxer.ca has an extensive set of information and resources on the many aspects of Ultralight Radios, and enthusiasts' activities.  We hope you will accept the challenge, join in the fun, and share in the rewards!

Hi Marshall:

Welcome to the fun! It sounds like you are similar to many of us - a
longtime DXer in search of a new source of adventure and challenge. I
think you'll find it here! To see what others are listening with,
tinkering with, etc., check out the DXer.ca web site, especially the
Ultra-Light File Area.

I'm on the definitions committee, so I can help see if your NEXXTECH units
are UltraLights. I checked on The Source's Web site, but was unable to
find a radio by NEXXTECH that costs $50.00. Do you have a model number,
Web link, etc.?

Thanks - Kevin S

Besides CBK and CKRM last evening, I heard CKJH 750 for the first time
at sunrise this morning. I still say it was strange night for DX.

Had a trace of a het on 774 kHz, but their was heavy QRM from nearby
KSPI 780 running at full power during their PSRA period.

Congratulations Rob. That quite an accomplishment. How long until
600? It will be awhile before I reach 500.

Conditions were strange here last evening. At times it was difficult
to hear the usual stations to the northeast. I was listening to the
debates on WWL 870, when it faded under Radio Reloj. I immediately
fired up the SRF-T615 in order to add the station to my log. Oddly,
reception of CBA 540 and CKRM 620 was very good. It almost seems the
best reception was on a northwest-southeast axis. Sadly I couldn't
keep my eyelid open!

Good luck and DX.

SONY SRF-39FP Prison Radio seen on TV Show!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

robert ross
 

Hi Guys:

Tonight on National Geographic Channel there was a program called "LockDown" which focused on Minnesota's Oak Park Maximum Security Prison. During the show they showed some of the Prisoners items that are made from clear Plastic so they can't hind anything inside of them. Included was a Clear Plastic TV, a Clear Plastic Hair Dryer...and they also showed a clear plastic SONY SRF-39FP Ultralight Radio!!

I felt PROUD when they showed the Prison Radio ULR!!! Gary and John...I wonder how we can get our ULR Crusade inside of those Prison Walls.....heck those boys have a lot of time to DX.....and I'm sure they could earn a lot of ULR Awards!!!!

What you don't see on TV eh!!!

Don't ask how many hours were spent at the dials.....but it was A LOT!!

The last 50 or so were getting pretty tough to hear new ones...but part of
that may have been because it was not Prime DX Season as I approached
Number 500. The last 2 weeks have seen vast improvements in
conditions...and what was logged.

So with # 500 finally in the Logbooks.......the March continues to see just
what can be accomplished over time. I think I'm getting close to the
saturation point for the BAREFOOT Status of my DX'ing though..... I may
have start resorting to EXTERNAL Loops and other Beefed up Antennas to keep
the stations coming!! We shall see....

So......here is the Last 5 Stations needed to hit # 500..........

Radio used tonight was the TRUSTY SONY SRF-T615 BAREFOOT.

Re: This mornings SUNRISE DX on Ultralight....2 more New ones......

Tim Davisson
 

Good morning guys....It doesn't surprise me AM-band conditions have
picked up.

Driving home from work yesterday afternoon about 4:45pm I could hear
1480 WCIN Cincinnati under local 15,000-watt WHBC (day power). That
told me conditions would be good...maybe excellent last night.

It continued this morning/sunrise in the midwest. Picked up a couple
new stations this morning....from the middle south. Also heard a
couple strong Spanish-language stations on usual 50kwer clear
channel frequencies...didn't stay long enough to identify...had to
get ready for work.

It should be very good again tonight. Want to get some AM DXing in
before the VP debate (which could be hysterical).
