Re: ULR DX Season winding down.........

Gary DeBock
 

Thanks Guy,

Yes, chasing South Pacific AM-DX in the middle of summer probably
sounds pretty weird-- at least until someone tries it out (and gets
hooked). Strangely enough, both the Ultralight AM-DXing distance record
(from North America) and the Ultralight NDB-DXing distance record
(worldwide) were set during this type of bizarre DXing on the west
coast-- right in the middle of summer.

<<< Besides the potential for reception of Australia and New Zealand,
summer time DXing from the Washington and Oregon coast has the
advantage of much more pleasant weather. It makes up for the misery of
the cold, drizzle, and sometimes sideways rain when DXing at Pacific
Northwest beaches in the winter and spring. >>>

Well, your dedication to set up in the Grayland yurts during all kinds
of foul weather probably gives you a unique perspective on coastal
DXing, Guy. As I recall, you even went through an earthquake in one of
the recent Grayland sessions. Fair-weather DXers (like me) could
probably learn a lot from your determination.

<<< I have DXed every month of the year multiple times at the coast
since I started going on DXpeditions in 1987-88. In my opinion, every
month has potential for DX; it's a non-stop "DX season". Even when the
solar cycle is not favorable (like right now), there's always hope that
an interesting or unusual DX catch will surface. If not, well, you can
try antenna experiments, compare different receivers, or investigate
other radio related pursuits. >>>

Yes, last year the Solar Cycle usually didn't cooperate very well with
our DXpedition agendas, did it? It's always been the luck of the draw,
but recently the deck seems stacked against us. Fortunately South
Pacific DX is less dependent on solar cooperation than Asiatic TP
propagation (according to Chuck, and other experts).

<<< BTW Gary, wish me luck next week as I return t o Grayland on the
6th through the 9th. Your 7-inch FSL antenna will be part of the
DXpedition supplies :^) >>>

Thanks for taking the 7" FSL along, and good luck in Grayland next
week, Guy. You certainly can't do any worse than we did in our May 2008
(one-night) Dxpedition, when we received nothing except curious stares
from the clam diggers :-)

73, Gary

DU DXing!

Re: What happened to the C Crane EP radio? -FARMERIK

Rik
 

Thanks Keith

I went and looked at Herculodge. It seems the new analog AM FM Sangean PR-D6 only has one review which is bad, and I it found there. It must be quite new. The NYC camera shops have those starting around $40. Wal-mart on line lists them. I think it would be safer to buy one locally where it can be returned. It looks like it has a 5 inch or so ferrite rod, comes with both bass and treble controls, and an LED tuning indicator.

It would be too bad if Sangean can't have reasonable QC on either radio, while SONY makes portables which sell for less and my dozen or so at least work correctly. Any inexpensive radio off the shelf may not be peaked as well as an enthusiast would like, but it should work.

I figured someone here would know something about any potential inexpensive DXing portable, even if they are not ULR's.

I don't know, Rik.

It may be the luck of the draw whether you get a "good" one or not. Somebody, I believe it was Kevin Raper, mentioned that he ordered two of them and both needed alignment to achieve maximum performance; neither was a good performer "out of the box."

Re: ULR DX Season winding down.........

Gary DeBock
 

Richard and Rob,

You guys have both had phenomenal Ultralight DXing results recently,
and certainly are deserving of a break. With 1000 AM stations heard on
ULR's, you both are entitled to a leisurely, relaxing summer (and I
know that Rob shivered with me through the winter, too, chasing NDB's
outside in the freezing cold). But it may surprise you both that summer
is the most productive time for both AM and Longwave DXing here.

A weird quirk in propagation makes summer the best time to chase South
Pacific AM and Longwave DX on Pacific Ocean beaches, and I wish that
you could both experience the thrill of how the bands miraculously
change from static-filled wastelands into DXing paradises for a few
short hours around sunrise on high cliffs overlooking the Pacific surf.
If you hit it just right, Australia and New Zealand can both boom in
like locals, right in the middle of July and August.

I don't use the ULRs for FM DXing however. With 2,154 FM Stations

so much easier to ID Stations!! I have a 50 Foot Tower and a HUGE FM
Beam, an APS-14, 14 Element FM Beam ...which also helps pull in the DX.
