WHAT A CATCH!!!

Paul, I sure hope that you are planning to enter the World-wide contest that is contained in the Fall Follies.... either Barefoot or Unlimited.  You ought to do very well, even against those of us listening across the Pacific!  Both Oct 25 and Oct 27 were STUNNINGLY GREAT DX conditions across the Pacific... between about 1200 and 1500, when I was listening.  Several of the other Tree Huggers up here were also on during that time period and did very well, too.... maybe it will continue for another day or two!!!

Enter the contest!!!  Its your five longest distances heard anytime between last Friday at 30 minutes before LSS and Next Monday, Nov.3 at 30 minutes past LSR.

Hi all,

not much listening done recently but one really welcome log tonight

1566    HLAZ Jeju, FEBC    250kw    S.Korea    20:00    27/10/2008    5800miles    9331km

Time pips at the top of the hour then om in presumed Korean and choral music.

Distances are approx - anyone got the long/lat of the transmitter site?

Realised it was possible when I noticed the strength of China on 1521 and heard Taiwan dominating on 1557.

I have been hearing this over the last nights on my main set up but every time it has peaked it was with choral music and the language was very hard to make out. Only the 2nd time ever that I have nailed this one so very pleased.

Wonder is Japan a possibility from here...

either!!

Subject: Re: Question on Fall Follies ULR Contest

Dave,

My guess is that you are not a member of the ultralightdx group and, possibly that you did not reread the Official Rules for the Fall Follies.  The Rules on time are very clear. I try to copy the irca list on important ultralight business, but I failed to do so when I responded to Kirk Allen's question about 8 hours aggregate vs. 4 hours aggregate.  Here is a copy of my message from ultralightdx.

Sorry for the confusion:

Hi Guys,
I'm a bit confused on the rule for the most stations heard. In the
pdf file I saved from dxer.ca, the rules say a total listening time
of 4 hours, but this posting states 8 hours. Maybe I missed
something, but could one of you guys help clarify this for me?
Thanks. I hope everyone enjoys the competition.

Oh, DANG IT ALL!!!  The official rules govern, of course. Its four hours, to be broken in a maximum of 8 segments, each a minimum of 30 minutes and my failing brain just mushed all of that together, DANG IT!

*****4 hours*****

Thanks to Eagle Eye Kirk Allen for spotting my error. Sorry for the confusion.

John Bryant!

John and all;

I had asked this question on dxer.ca ULR forum but no replies, save for
Colin's.

I *thought* that I understood the Fall Follies contest but something
that I read the other day has clouded my vision of it.

I was under the impression that for the total stations heard contests,
you could listen for up to four hours, with up to 8 periods. After
reading a note from John Bryant (on the IRCA reflector), I see 8 hours
mentioned. I must have missed something. Can someone clarify?


***from John Bryant: Two of the contests (the most stations heard within
an aggregate eight hours of DXing, Barefoot or Unlimited Classes,
require a fair amount of time (at least 8 hours at he dials.)
 
***********************************

***From the contest rules on dxer.ca: but the total listening time shall
not exceed 4 hours and no session shall be less than 30 minutes of
continuous DXing.


Thanks for any clarifications. I appreciate the efforts!

73 and Good Luck!

PS: I have not started contesting yet - not due to the question above
but due to time constraints.  I predict that the band will die, when I
start. dh

Re: New State Last Night and UNIDs

Kirk Allen <kirk74601@...>
 

Actually no I was listening to the E-100 barefoot. With those really
jammed up frequencies, sometimes it seems the Select-a-Tenna only
makes reception even tougher. Be sure to read the article posted on
dxer.ca regarding the use of passive antennas/antennae. I hope the
author of this very interesting and informative article will forgive
me...I cannot remember who wrote it. I need to read it again to help
absorb more of the article.
Later, amigo.

Hi Ray:

The SW-12 is indeed an Ultralight. After some help from Paul in Bellevue,
