Re: Finally Logged Station #200

---Nice going,Kirk !I think i had 100 or so logged in Ok.But now i am
working on my first 100 here in Tenessee.At first i was in Maryville
when i got here.Then we stayed in Towsend for about 2 weeks.We are
now temporarily living in Walland,Tn but i am working in Knoxville.I
have some logs from Maryville and Townsend to get together in one
place.I am currently working on 100 logged from here in Walland.I am
about 2/3 of the way there.When i get moved into the house i am
buying in Maryville,then i will start work on a serious log there.
I will post some logs in a a separate message but here are some
totals.Countries logged here:5 including a new one all time for
me,the Bahamas on 1540.Also U.S.,Canada,Mexico and Cuba.States
logged:25 including 2 that i never heard back in Oklahoma.That would
be Maryland(2 stations- on 1090 and 1690) and Connecticut(WTIC
1080).I also have been able to make it to 5 states logged in the
daytime here.They are Tennessee,North Carolina,South Carolina,Georgia
and Alabama.North and South Carolina were real rarieties for me back
in Oklahoma.I logged 2 S.C. stations there and that was for special
dx tests .I logged 1 North Carolina station there(WBT 1110).I have
not been able to log an Oklahoma station here yet but have logged
several of the states that border it including Texas and
Arkansas.While i was in Townsend i logged a daytime regular for me
when i was back in Oklahoma(KGGF 690 Coffeyville,Ks.)The station
furtherest west for me,logged while i was in Townsend,was KOA
850,Denver,Co.Hopefully i will have use of my home computer again
soon,so that that i can check in more often and report what i log
here.Maybe i will be able to catch those elusive New England states
that i have not been able to catch before(except for Massachusetts -
WBZ-Boston 1030).That was logged in Oklahoma and here.
73 and good dx for now to all

After not really getting very serious about Ultralight listening

It was KWAM, Memphis, TN on 990 khz. ID at 1059 UTC. As a bonus, at
1206 UTC this morning, managed to ID (it was easy...BIG signal
here)
XEMR, Monterrey on 1140 for station #201. Okay, it's on to 300 now.
OH,
yes Guy, you're right. It was John's handiwork that came up with

picture of all of us crazy DX'ers from the NU/FT vention in
Reynoldsburgh, OH in the summer of 1987. John, I'm going to scan
this

Testing with a TERK Advantage passive am loop...it is particularly well suited to the SONY SRF-59 and 1981 vintage SONY ICF-E10W. Sangean 200 & 400 models benefit as well, but not to the degree of the SONY's. E100 benefits as well, especially on the lower frequencies. I find that the TERK is best when the ULR is placed with it's back to the outside surface of the TERK with thw TERK's base serving as a resting place for the ULR's bottom. Results are most sensational during the day; at night, the "sweet spot peaking" can be a bit subtle, and confused by the presence of stations on nearby frequencies. SONY 7600, SONY ICF-S5W, Sangean PR-D5 do not benefit in a worthwhile manner.
 
I got WERC 5 kw 960 KHz Birmingham, AL in the null of our Nuevo Laredo local on 960 KHz 1 KW 2 a.m. Sunday...the signal was quite clear and free of qrm! This on the Sangean 400 model. Also heard KMBZ 5 KW 980 KHz Kansas City, MO at about that time. KCBS 740 SanFrancisco has been fading in quite often in the null of KTRH Houston as of late around 2 a.m. on the 400. KNX 1070 Los Angeles is a common catch as is KNBR 680 San Francisco.

Re: Question about "eligible stations"

Marshall Cubitt <marshallve3txt@...>
 

your question has been debated for years by am dxers
where is the line drawn before the station is dx 50miles 100 miles or do we look atout put power .
under day time conditions I hear CFRB Toronto But also many small stations bounce across  Lake Ontario to the Ottwaw area  from western NY

Hi George, welcome. I was about to ask the same question and you beat me to it. I just got started with a Eton E100 and was wondering about local stations also. I also started DXing back in the early 60's, also with a National NC-60 and in fact still have it. Anyone know a good repair person? I went the SW route with my earliest QSL from Radio Habana Cuba in 1962. I have not been in the hobby for some years and Ultralight renewed my interest!

When counting logged stations for credit toward various milestones,

for a few weeks listening around the eastern states and Canada,
logging stations out of habit. I came across this group a few
weeks ago and it piqued my interest in some serious Ultralight DXing.

Last week I bought a Sangean DT-200VX from Amazon for $50. This thing
is truly amazing, and I'm hooked on Ultralights! I've been doing some
casual listening with it (and logging as I go) and I started counting
up the logs from the two tiny radios and realized that I have over 40
without really trying (and without any locals). I think that I'll be
aiming for a 100 pretty soon.

Re: Question about "eligible stations"

John Cereghin <pastor@...>
 

Hi, George!

Just my 2 cents worth here, but certainly, count your local stations.
Why not? If it broadcasts, it counts, regardless of where it is. By
DXing your locals and semi-locals, you should rack up your first 100
UL stations rather quickly.

Personally, if I hear it on the MW band, I count it, including TIS
stations, "talking houses", pirates and what not.

I also use a DT-200 VX as my primary UL radio, but I may get an E-100
or a DT-400 for my birthday which is after Thanksgiving. I usually
run it "barefoot", with no external antenna, although I do have a
Select-a-Tenna and a CC Crane Twin Coil antenna. I also have three
SRF-59s.

I've been in the hobby since 1976. I first discovered DX while living
in Idaho, picking up WWV on 10 mhz. I thought it fascinating that
there would be a station that broadcast nothing but time!

My first rig was an old Heathkit AR-2 my uncle gave me. Over the
years, I've used a DX-150B, DX-160, DX-302, DX-440. I currently use a
FRG-7, a DX-150B, a Grundig YB-400 and a Kaito KA-1103.

I had a lay-off of about 10 years as well, until my "mid-life crises"
hit and I got back into the hobby. I was more active in SW DXing and
scanning until I got back into MW DXing. I also prowl the FM bands
during the summer, when the e-skip is hopping.

Right now, I'm in Day 12 of the 300-Stations-in-30 Days challenge with
my ULs. I'm at 225 stations with 19 days to go. It's great fun and
you might want to take a stab at it to see how well you do! I'm also
pushing for 400 stations heard on the UL. Right now I'm at 373
stations.

Re: Question about "eligible stations"

John H. Bryant <bjohnorcas@...>
 

George...

Another welcome to the Ultralight MW DX Community.  I think that you'll find us a friendly bunch...

Thanks for being concerned about what considered to be "legal" or ethical to count in awards programs or contests, etc.  Logging your locals is like shooting fish in a barrel, except these fish often come back to haunt us, as Kevin pointed out.

One of the happiest effects that I've noticed is that many stations that are semi-locals in the daytime disappear at night... This is because their ground wave just isn't strong enough to compete with sky wave from further distant stations... and they are c;lose enough to you for you to be in their skywave "dead zone."   The angle that their sky wave would have to take up from the transmitter to reflect down to you is just to steep to be reflected by the ionosphere..... so, some of those almost-locals will disappear for you at night, thank goodness.

As far as what one may count in awards, etc... I've always felt that if it were licensed by a legal authority AS A BROADCASTING STATION, it was plenty OK to count.... I know that some people count TIS stations... I don't.  I would guess that we would leave those up to the individual DXer, though the Committee has never discussed such. Beyond that, I'm personally against counting Talking Houses  :>) but the Committee hasn't taken a stand on that one either.

So, thanks again for asking.... but go ahead and count those locals.... they WILL come back to haunt you :>)

Welcome to the crazy world of Ultralighting, George!

Hi George:

Welcome to UltraLighting! I say of course you can count locals - in fact,
I see it as compensation for not being able to log several distant
stations on that frequency. Being in the Seattle area, the first 10-20
stations are easy for me as well (unfortunately...).

Ultralight SUNSET DX...New Station # 6 for the day!!

robert ross
 

Hi Guys:

Snuck in another hours DXing at Sunset tonight and Logged NEW STN # 6
for the day!! New for both the ULR Log and the OVERALL Log! This station is
only 120 Miles from me....but I've never heard it...or even heard of it in
32 Years of DXing!!! Strange thing is it is only about 5 miles from the
home of our Family Friends who live in Farmington Hills, Michigan...and
I've visited them a zillion times...and still was not aware of this
station!! And it's a GREAT OLDIES station too....playing lots of RARE Doo
Wop and Rockabilly stuff!! It streams online so I think I'll be listening
to these guys quite often!!

Radio used for this reception was the ..........SONY SRF-T615 Barefoot.
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

ULR LOG TOTALS are now..........................515 Stations Heard
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

MICHIGAN. Female Spoke English with a heavy East Indian Accent. Then mixing
with
several stations, as it returned to the Tamil Pgm.
(Walled Lake is about 5 Miles from Farmington Hills)
Had me puzzled as when I checked the Format for this station....it was
listed as
OLDIES!! I checked their program sked Online and VOILA..they have a TAMIL Pgm
on Sundays from 1730 to 1800 PM. Listening to them Online right now with a
Great

This Logging was a total surprise as I didn't know this station existed!!

Vietnam-675 mp3 on a Modified E100

Gary DeBock
 

Hello Guys,
 
     Most of the recent new Ultralight TP countries have been logged by John Bryant with his Wellbrook array at Grayland, but by a strange quirk, the first Ultralight logging of Vietnam was by a Slider-loopstick E100 far from the ocean, in Puyallup, WA last month.
 
     Uploaded to the file section on the Yahoo Ultralightdx site is a recent recording of Vietnam-675 on the modified E100, here in Puyallup.  Thanks also to John, Rob Ross, Kevin Schanilec and many others for making Ultralight DXing the hottest subgroup of the AM-DX community, with the Yahoo group site now having over 100 enthusiastic members!

Recent Loggings - Good DX Conditions

Kirk Allen <kirk74601@...>
 

I certainly have to agree with Rob Ross about last night and this
morning. It seemed like conditions were very good. I haven't logged
this many new stations in a long time in an 8 hour session. Very
motivating for me.

1420, KTOE, Mankato, MN. Faded up just long enough to catch an ID @
0606 UT. I was very lucky on this one.

1470, WVOL, Berry Hill, TN. Playing EZL urban vocal mx. ID 0635 UT.

1420, WLET, Toccoa, GA. ID 0700 UT in a brief null from KBTN, Neosho,
MO, which was the strongest station here. Listed 65 watts night power.

1420, KPOC, Pocahantas. AR. Clear ID @0815 UT. Listed 118 watts night
power. Many stations were up and down on this freq this morning.
Extremely lucky to catch ID's of the three I logged here on 1420.

1330, WVHI, Evansville, IN. Very nice and clear ID at 0900 UT.
Religious pgm'g, "Insight for Living." 1kw night power.

1350, KCHR, Charleston, MO. C&W mx w/ID hrd around 0915 UT. MANY
other stations on this freq just fighting like crazy to be the
dominant one.

1540, KZMP, University Park, TX. Programming in SP with many "La
Ranchera" slogans thrown in between songs. Full ID at 1200 UT.

620, KTAR, Phoenix, AZ. 2 stations here just trading places for
dominance. KTAR was running one very long infomercial just like the
stuff on TV that can bore the pants off of one and all...yawn. I got
lucky at 1231 UT, this sta faded up nicely just in time to catch
their full ID. I don't normally have this kind of "luck."

660, CFFR, Calgary, Manitoba. Very nice copy of this one from 1236-
1255 UT. Local programming with traffic report and local weather.
Many ments of Calgary. VG signal.

I certainly can't do those marathon listening sessions all the time,
but while conditions seemed to be ripe, I just couldn't pry myself
away for very long. This is all John Bryant's fault, ha ha ha. Yip,
he's a motivator alright! Thanks, John!!
Take care guys and great DX at ya!

"940 WCPC, Houston MS, "Radio that changes the way you live, AM 940,
WCPC, Houston MS", into Christian programming. A treat! This is only
my 2nd Mississippi station."

John,
You are doing great guns on the 30 day challenge.

WCPC is also a memorable for me. First time I booked it was on my xtl
radio. The announcer read a promo for a local cattle auction. Not
something one would hear on WCBS, for sure.

Keep up the good work.

Greg:

Welcome aboard the hobby that making kids out a bunch of old-timers.
It's definitely surprising what can be heard on a tiny receiver like
the SRF-59. Best wishes for many DX catches.

Hi Guys....Basically I started ULR loggings on 8/30/08...and as of
tonight am up to 201 stations heard...using a stock Sony SRF-59:

23 states, 2 countries, 3 Canadian provinces.

Only DX an hour or so a day, maybe 3 or 4 days a week. Am also a ham
and have other hobbies.

But, am having a lot of fun, and due to the SRF-59's excellent
nulling capabilities, I'm hearing some stations I've never heard in
40+ years of AM-band DXing.
