I also listened for a while to what is rapidly becoming a favorite

in both morning and evening. The format is mostly Classic Cajun

GS Ultralight loggings Nov. 29, 2008

Greg Shoom <shoomg@...>
 

Ultralight loggings for Sat. Nov. 29, 2008. All stations logged from Toronto, ON. Dates and times in UTC.

Three more stations added to the ultralight log. Total ultralight count: 209.

1010 WINS NY New York - 29-Nov-2008 0510 UTC - Heard under local CFRB in moments of silence during a talk show on CFRB. Traffic report with mentions of Rockaway, and the Lincoln and Holland tunnels. No ID, but what else could it possibly be? 50 kW. Sangean DT-400W (Very Poor).
--> Relog, but my first time logging it in Toronto.

1240 WNBZ NY Saranac Lake - 29-Nov-2008 1048 UTC - Ad for Iams. Ad for Hallowe'en at Wal-Mart - someone should tell them that it's the end of November. Promo spot for recycling batteries. ID with callsign. Weather forecast. Christmas music (at least they're not playing Hallowe'en music!). 1 kW. Sangean DT-400W. (Fair)
--> New station for the overall log.

1440 WNPV PA Lansdale - 29-Nov-2008 1110 UTC - Talk, weather, ID, and sports news. 2.5 / 0.519 kW. Sangean DT-400W. (Poor).
--> New station for the overall log.

New State Here Too

Kirk Allen <kirk74601@...>
 

Greetings,
This must have been the morning for hearing new states in OK. I
lucked into a new one myself and unusually late in the morning. I'm
amazed at how far into the morning we're hearing distant stations
lately.

720, KDWN, Las Vegas, NV, 1439-1450 UTC, 11/30. Discussion between a
M and W. Caught an ID by a M ancr at 1446. Very weak but in the
clear. State #31.

Also logged 4 other new stations in KS, AR and MO during the lcl
morning hours.

Joseph Miller, you're doing great up there. You'll be getting station
#100 before ya know it! And JB, you got me listening to
http://960thegator.com/ also! That's some dandy good music there.

Yes, I agree that the GY awards are a great idea. I like Robert's
idea of the tombstone type graphic.

Re: Another One From the Graveyard and a Modest Proposal

John H. Bryant <bjohnorcas@...>
 

Sounds to me like the Graveyard Stations Heard award is a consensus.  I do think that it would make sense to design a special award, with an appropriate graphic.  Give me a week and we'll institute such.

Last winter and Spring here in Oklahoma, I did GY DXing using my 535 and recording every TOH on a particular channel from before SS until after SR. I did that for 5 months - every night - and managed to hear about 120 stations on the 6 GY frequencies, BUT this was with my Wellbrook array....  I think that you were right on, having the Master GY DXer Award at 100.... and I do think that is possible from the NW, but it is sure easier (but still VERY difficult) in the middle of the country.

I gotta say though that durn Kirk Allen has managed to hear farther on the GY channels than I ever did and he was using a stock E100 and a Select-a-Tenna.

ON ANOTHER SUBJECT. 

In my one day of domestic DXing back here, I've decided to try out a new Slider e100 without the selectivity mod. The Murata filtered Slider e100 is so selective that the audio is still less than optimum, even off-tuning 1 kHz.  Its absolutely wonderful on those transoceanic splits, but I think the stock selectivity might just work better doing domestics.  I will do some real-time A/B testing and report (and reread what Gary had to say in his latest article, too.)

Re: Another One From the Graveyard and a Modest Proposal

Hey all:

Like Gary et al, I think a GY category would be a great idea!

It also presents perhaps one of the few ooportunities to use some sort of
handicapping system. As Gary mentioned, there are fewer GY stations for
us Westerners to hear within a 1,000 or so mile radius. There are a
little over 200 such stations within a 1000 mile radius of me. If I got
50 of those, not only would I be pleased as punch, but it would be in the
same category as someone elsewhere in the country hearing 100 if there
were 400 within 1,000 miles.

So, maybe "Hearing 25% of the GY stations within 1,000 miles" could be a
target/award to pursue?

(I picked 1,000 miles arbitrarily - my longest distance for a GY station
is currently 742 miles.)

Re: Morning Loggings: One Totally New State

Guy Atkins
 

Hi Rob,
 
I also like Cajun a lot, and thanks to John have discovered KROF as a replacement for a Last.fm Internet stream that disappeared from my Grace Digital wi-fi radio. I figured out the actual audio stream URL for KROF, and through www.reciva.com have added it as one of the "My Streams" entries for my account. Now I can listen to Cajun again on the wi-fi radio! I find it more satisfying to listen to Webcasts, podcasts, streaming audio, etc. from a "receiver" rather than a computer.
 
KROF is playing some great Southern Gospel now, on this Sunday afternoon.

Re: For Those of You Without Outdoor Antennas: indoor slinky "flag"

Guy Atkins
 

John,
 
David Hamilton indeed uses a slinky on the bottom (horizontal) segment...you can see the slinky spiral coils going across the floor. He also mentioned his antenna is made from two slinkys, so each one is a right angle, opposing arrangement.
 
Also take a listen to his comparison of audio between this antenna and another one on his property:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=db_p41MMigA&feature=related  The slinky "flag" is very directional!
 
I could fit one of these into the dense greenbelt behind our house as a companion to my NW Conti loop and the rotating ALA100. Toys R Us, here we come...

The Aussie (mwoz) group just moved the following link to a great youtube video of David Hamilton's indoor slinky "Flag."

In our terminology, his antenna is not a classic flag (that has termination and feed locations half-way up the verticals) but rather a Conti Super Loop, since the termination and feed point are at the lower corners. 

In any case, the use of Slinkies gets more wire in a restricted location and has been around for many years.  This is the first Slinky loop that I've seen, though, and very interesting. He used Slinkies on both verticals and on the upper horizontal. The lower horizontal is a straight wire. Classically, to get the upper and lower sides electrically equal, they both oughta either be straight wire or both be Slinky material.  HOWEVER, his antenna appears to work GREAT.

It is an excellent video and should be of interest to any of you with restricted ability to hang wire outside.  It could be hooked to a ULR either with an inductive pick-up loop around the internal ferrite bar or by using a Slider with a coil for external antennas.

John,

I would think that total number of GY stations would work, with
certificates or endorsements starting at 25 stations and then every 25
stations after that or something. Distance isn't as important for the
GYs as numbers of stations. Maybe make 100 stations the level for
Master UL GY DXer.

Re: Another One From the Graveyard and a Modest Proposal

I guess one reason why I proposed a GY Award is that anyone can do it,
regardless of where you are or the kind of UL radio or antenna you
have. Not everyone can have a lot of luck with TA, TP or Latin DXing
but everyone has 6 graveyard channels they can work on. Your results
won't be as exotic as North Korea or Greenland, but there is a unique
challenge to Graveyard DXing that gives it a charm all its own.

Hi Folks:

I think one of the problems with the Graveyard Distance Records, is
that in general...most Graveyard Receptions are rather short Distances,
there are exceptions of course. A 500 Mile GY Reception is pretty
good....but in the scope of the worldwide DX we've been hearing...a lot of
DX'ers wouldn't even report that as a Possible Distance Record. Even a 1000
Mile reception seems pale compared to the TP and TA stuff everyone is
hearing!! I have logged a pile of GY'ers with the Ultralights....but none
of them have been at a great distance. Allen Willie and Kirk Allen have
heard a few Good ones lately..and I believe they have been reported and
recorded in the records. Maybe we should make a concerted effort to monitor
the GY Freqs a little better...and see if we can't get some new records
recorded!! I'm a firm believer that if you spend time at the dials on
certain frequencies..the stations will come. You just have to be there at
the right time!!

Maybe something we can look at is...a "TOTAL GY STATIONS HEARD" Award????
What does everyone think about that?? Maybe we can get some input from the

Maybe John can design a Nice certificate with a TOMBSTONE on it
