300-in-30 Day Challenge, Day 3

John Cereghin <pastor@...>
 

Of course, after racking up 168 stations in my first two days, I knew
I couldn't keep up that pace forever! Day 3 (Saturday) resulted in 11
new stations for the challenge, bringing my three-day total to 179
stations. Nothing new however- all re-logs.

From this point on, it gets harder and harder. 121 stations to go in
26 days!

Re: Submission for New Barefoot UL world record!

I caught up on the later e-mails and found that greater than 7000
miles had indeed been done from the West Coast. Deep Africa would be
the only likely target from this area that would be in a similar
distance range and actually away from polar zones enough to be
feasible. Lesotho (1197) is around 7900 miles and had been heard (as
BBC) in the '90s by me on barefoot Sony ICF-2010 (no, not an
ultralight) at both the Granite Pier (Rockport) and Windmill Beach (S.
Yarmouth) sites.

Unfortunately both the effective radiated power level and schedule
regularity of Lesotho have deteriorated in the past 10 years. Now
it's a tough catch on good gear. We need a South African station in
the megawatt plus class like Saudi 1521. Or a high band Australian of
that kind of power for a dawn DX catch here.

If we could just blow up WQEW-1560 Radio Disney, India-1566 could come
into play. It's been logged at the Rowley, MA salt-marsh on a Drake
R8A and phased verticals (50 m separation), but that station making
the leap to a barefoot ultralight possibility would require 1560
(WQEW) and 1570 (CFAV/WNSH) getting out of the way somehow.

My calculations show the distance to these as 6650 miles or 10702 km.

Could this be an Ultralight barefoot distance record ?

I thought some of the West Coast guys had greater than 7000 miles.

Hello Mark,
 
     Thanks for the very detailed list of distance record possibilities, from the east coast.
 
     From the west coast, it may be tough to beat 5AN-891 in Adelaide, Australia (8,230 miles, or 13,255 km, from Grayland) once somebody receives it for a decent stock Ultralight logging.  Both John and I received it easily with modified E100's, and it produced audio traces on a stock SRF-T615, but nothing substantial enough to be considered a logging.  Kevin's logging of 3LO-774 (Melbourne, Australia) from Seward, Alaska (7,684 miles, or 12,372 km) beat out multiple stock Ultralight loggings of VOA-1575 (Thailand) from Grayland. 
 
     I suppose the ultimate challenge for both coasts will be India, or the nearby islands.  Tiny stock loopsticks will need a lot of propagation help, for a miracle like that to happen.
 
     73,  Gary

Hi Gary:

Thanks for kind feedback! It's running in a few newletters now, and I

Hi Kevin S.,

I really enjoyed your excellent article "Using Tuned Passive Loop
Antennas," which is published in the 10/11/08 edition of IRCA's "DX
Monitor" newsletter. I didn't realize there were so many ways to use
passive loops, both individually and in combination. Is this article
available elsewhere, for the benefit of those who are not IRCA
members? I'm sure most members of this group would learn something by
reading it.

Regards,
Gary

New Barefoot UL world record -Oops! / Latest Logs

Paul Logan
 

Hi all,

first off thanks to those who congratulated me on what I realise now was a presumptuous claim for a new record! Im still thrilled at this, my best barefoot log so far (and new dx country) but thanks to the updated info from Gary I'm going to have to start trying to hear Chile or southern Argentina!.

Insane logging of Thailand from Grayland! didnt realise it had been done barefoot.

As far as east Asian reception in Europe goes - It does happen but usually aided by beverages / large loops and prime Scandanavian locations ( Those guys seem to hear everything that moves on the planet - for instance Japanese, Hawaiian or South Pacific logs are not that rare up there!)

I've heard WYFR a few times on a Sony portable but reception with a 1.75 inch ferrite rod is just crazy.

As for poor landlocked Ultralighters as mentioned by Robert you guys seem to do ok!. Im about 35 miles inland in a valley in a horrendously rf noisy area, I dream about a cottage in Donegal festooned with antennas....

A few new ones last night, one remarkable one that had eluded me until now was Tunisia on 630 a big signal which seems to be on irregularly. This is Barefoot UL country 63 for me. Heres what was heard:

1557 WYFR Kouhu, Taiwan om in US rlg talk 300 Taiwan 19:11 10/10/2008
1098 BSKSA 2 Dammam, parallel found on satellite @ 26 east 5 Saudi Arabia 20:30 10/10/2008
1197 Absolute Radio, namechange from Virgin radio various sites 2 England 22:07 10/10/2008
1215 COPE various sites ( must try to get local id's here) 5 Spain 22:14 10/10/2008
1269 COPE various sites ( must try to get local id's here 10 Spain 22:18 10/10/2008
1557 Gold, Kings Heath, Northamptonshire, local ad for Brazilian restaurant among oldies 0.76 England 22:27 10/10/2008
558 Spectrum Radio, Crystal Palace, London, Farsi programme 1 England 22:50 10/10/2008
630 National Channel, Tunis yl talk / music // satellite 16 east 600 Tunisia 23:17 10/10/2008

Im now on 402 barefoot with another 32 aided by loops, will try to pick a few of those off barefoot if the low solar numbers continue.

Boy this getting to 500 business is seriously hard!

regards and good dx to all

Re: New Barefoot UL world record -Oops! / Latest Logs

Gary DeBock
 

Hi Paul,
 
     Don't feel too bad about your WYFR-1557's reception barely missing the all-time stock Ultralight distance record. 
 
     Right after my post to you, Kevin Schanilec sent me a post claiming the stock Ultralight distance record himself, for his stock E100 logging of 3LO-774 (in Melbourne, Australia) from Seward, Alaska.  The bizarre thing is that I heard traces of this 3LO-774 station myself during a July trip to Grayland, WA on a stock SRF-T615 (which is a slightly greater distance), but didn't think the reception was substantial enough for a formal logging (it was solid copy on a modified E100, but only had traces on the stock SRF-T615).  So Kevin's 3LO-774 logging (7,684 miles, or 12,373 km) should indeed be considered the current record, in my opinion--  at least until somebody using a stock ULR at Grayland has a more substantial logging of 3LO, or some other station in Australia.
 
     It certainly seems that Ultralight DXing records were made to be broken :>)
 
     73,  Gary

Last Morning at Grayland: Ocytober 10

John H. Bryant <bjohnorcas@...>
 

Yesterday, I was still having trouble believing that I'd heard KFQD in Anchorage on the barefooted T615, right over the top of 50 kW KXL-750 in nearby Portland, OR. Whilke I was at the local Library and firmly hooked to the internet, I checked to see if the University of South Carolina even HAD a hockey team (I'd heard them skating against somebody on what I was certain was KFQD, hearing local Anchorage commercials, etc.).  According to the South Carolina web-site, they DO have an ice hockey team, but their season does not start until 24 October. There was no indication of any earlier hockey games on their schedule.  I then checked the KFQD schedule on their website... an all newstalk format and I looked at the U of Alaska, Anchorage for their hockey season. KFQD showed the Beck show on at the time that I thought I'd heard hockey from Anchorage and the University hockey team also had not started their season.  After mulling things over, I decided to take the KFQD logging outta my list for both the Unlimited and the Barefoot  Classes... I had not recorded it and there was just NO evidence.... I must have imagined it.

So, Thursday evening I made up a thorough hit list for Alaska and went to work at 9:15PM local time.  The Wellbrook Array, being able to swap directions, made things fairly easy.  I soon had evidence of a number of Alaskans on frequencies shared with stations in the Pacific Northwest.  As I clicked through 750, THERE WAS A HOCKEY GAME, coming in quite loudly.  I tested it with the array.... Sure enough I could hear KXL to my Southeast and the hockey seemed to be coming from the Northwest!  I listened a few minutes and darned if one of the teams wasn't that crazy buncha Southerners, the South Carolina Gamecocks!!!  Later, there were plenty of local Anchorage commercials, a name of the Anchorage municipal area where the Pre-Season Tournament was taking place, etc.  The boys from South Carolina were well ahead, too. 

I'm counting that one for sure.... I got several other Alaskans on the E100 and then hit the sack, looking forward to my last dawn for a while at Grayland.

Since I'd been so fortunate the previous three mornings that I decided not to approach this last morning with any kind of strategy other than a target list for Unlimited Class and a list of my current Barefoot loggings.

The early burst around 1200 netted me a new Mayak Unlimited logging on 549 (Okinawa was nowhere to be found) and an excellent 720 Russian JJ Service logging, first on the E100 and then BAREFOOT on the t615.... KDWN in Las Vegas was just clobbered!  After that, things slowed down, so with 45 minutes before dawn enhancement, I had breakfast and packed up all of my non-essentials. (I needed to leave as early as possible to drive four hours and then catch an over-crowded ferry back to my home QTH on weekend tourist-magnet, Orcas Island.

I was back in the hunt at 1345 (LSR around 1420). I soon noticed the North Korean on 657... as noted by others, they musta worked on that thing, 'cause its a LOT louder!  Well, it was coming in so well that I decided to try for a new Barefoot Country.  Sure enough, the T615 snagged it easily... it was just booming in. So, I started going up the dial with the WinRadio, looking for really loud ones and then jumping up, changing headphones and running around the room with the T615 trying to escape the computer QRM, the refrigerator buzz, etc, and snag another Barefoot catch. I was really getting my exercise, jumping up and down like a demented Jack in the Box!!!

Fairly soon, I just abandoned using a spotting receiver, things were really coming in on the T615. I found the Sweat Spot in the room (equi-distant between the computer and the refrigerator) and just DXed dawn with the T615 by itself... I ended up with nine new Barefoot TP loggings and a VERY wide smile.

I closed out the morning with a strange logging on 944.99, running with the normal CNR1 on 945.00... REALLY weird music, etc... I'll have more to say about that logging after I've analyzed the recording.

So.... here are my Unlimited and Barefoot Class Loggings for October 10.

Well, I'll try to publish a composite list tomorrow.... It is great to see Walt and Guy with major new Conti Loops... and Guy with decently DXable TP signals at home for the first time in many a moon..... This stuff is just too much fun not tyo have everyone in on it.

Also really nice to see Mark C. discovering the joy of hearing DX on these little marvels...

I swear that hearing almost a dozen TPs in one morning on a T615 Barefoot is the most fun I've ever had with my clothes on.... well, except for Easter Island, anyway.... Hey, I could have been nude there and only the horses would have known!!!  Talk aboutr Barefoot Class......


Have a great`weekend everyone!

Submission for New Barefoot UL world record!

Paul Logan
 

Hi all,

nailed it at last!

1557 WYFR Kouhu,Taiwan. US OM in religious talk 1911 utc 10/10/08

Had seen reports of good east Asian reception via the MWC this afternoon so thought I'd try for this one which I've heard a few times in the past on other set ups.

First hint of success was at 1858 utc hearing a yl in Chinese. Was being careful as Lithuania carries China Radio International on this freq ( although at this time they are listed as being in Russian).

Finally at 1911 with my UL in the palm of my hand standing beside the window looking out at a very wet Irish autumn night and an American voice fades up with religious talk! Was dominant for about 20 seconds before sliding back under France. Ferrite bearing was right for Taiwan.

The timings of the English and Chinese fit the WYFR schedule at http://www.familyradio.com/international/frame/

So I respectfully submit this catch as a new Barefoot world record with reception distance being 6264 miles / 10081 km.

I'm thrilled especially since I had thought I had this one some time back only to be dashed with the realisation that Lithuania also carried Chinese here.

I cant see me bettering this one for a while!.

regards and good dx to all,
