I agree. As a lifelong broadcaster and hobbyist I find AM radio (at least here in the US) to be alive and well and all the prophets of doom are voicing opinions which may not be founded. I say let's be positive about it and keep enjoying our hobby.

Many people are also saying (and have for years)that shortwave is dead but they tend to be people who don't listen. Sure there are far fewer signals than there used to be but those of us who do still listen can find tons to listen to.

At the peak of the IBOC-inspired pessimism in late 2007 DXers were all too eager to throw off the funereal mindset that was dominating both the IRCA and NRC lists, and take on an exciting new challenge.

Ultralight radio DXing is tough, challenging and completely different from relying on table receivers and large antennas for success-- but the challenge forces you to develop new skills and attitudes... something that you haven't needed to do for decades. The other side of the coin is that the new challenge provides you with DXing excitement that you haven't felt for decades, either!

The accidental loss of John Bryant in early 2010 was a shock to us all, and could have given the ULR community a legitimate reason to "throw in the towel." But guess what? John's organizational work had done had already laid a firm foundation of optimism and excitement in our community, and we continued to grow like wildfire. Today our Yahoo group has well over 1300 members, and I honestly can't remember when anyone on Ultralightdx has posted a gloom-and-doom message about the future of the AM-DXing hobby.

I was a teenage DXer in the IRCA in 1969, and can well remember how favorable DXing conditions were with clear channels, Monday morning sign-off periods and frequent DX tests. But I can honestly say that the past few years have been far more exciting, with new discoveries like the FSL antennas, enhanced ocean cliff transoceanic propagation and computer-based sharing of MP3 files. Recently two of the most vibrant segments of the AM-DXing community (Perseus-SDR DXers and the ULR community) have cooperated to develop the new Broadband FSL antenna, which has the potential to provide breakthrough spectrum-capture capability on ocean side cliffs. There will be other exciting AM-DXing challenges coming in the next few years, both in antenna development and transoceanic DXing... and I personally can't wait to see what the future will bring. I may sound like a voice in the wilderness, but I'm sure that noted DXers like Allen Willie, Rob Ross, Richard Allen, Gary Deacon and others will agree with me :-)

Reading the posts by Lee Freshwater and John Callarman left me feeling
saddened and nostalgic. Saddened for the obvious decline of AM radio and
our DXing hobby, and saddened to see two of our legendary DXers signing
off. And nostalgic for those magical winter nights when I was a teen in the
1950s-60s, listening first with a little Zenith table radio, then with a
Hallicrafters S-85, feeling the excitement of hearing 1 or 5 kw stations in
California from my western PA QTH, or the OCs suddenly bursting into the
SSB with the s/on of a 500 watter in the deep South, or the barely audible
1YZ on 800, or the amazing signals from daytimers doing Monday-AM FCs or
ETs or DX tests on actual clear channels, or the evening parade of s/offs
on 1580 progressing westward every 15 minutes, or the astonishing morning
when HCJB-1310 faded up to top the channel after sunrise for a once-in-a
lifetime clear ID, or typing my report to NRC's DX News and sending it
off...

Well, as the song says, everything must change, nothing stays the
same...but it's been a great ride, and I'm glad for all of us who got to be
a part of it!

Thank you for the information. KRDY isn't much of a problem here, but KNZZ might be. Despite its low power, KNZZ is aubible when I point the receiver toward Brazil. However a good signal from Radio Globo should be audible here.

To Me AM DXing Has Just Begun!
I have been a shortwave listener and also a ham radio operator for over 30 years and I am just discovering the fun aspect of AM DXing. To me there is much more information available then ever on how to construct all types of antennas, baluns, tuners and even rolling your own DX receiver. To me radio communications will always be fun and exciting and I will always love it. Still enjoying radio after all these years.

Yeah, and thanks for that. A chance meeting with Richard Allen at the
OKC Train Show a few years back where the discussion turned from
trains to the subject of TP DXing on ultralights lead me to a Tecsun
PL606 (though he and I would probably prefer "Oklahomun"-branded
radios). I've not done as much AM DXing as I'd like subsequently, but
I would not have done *any* (save for Cubs baseball on WGN in the car
at night) had it not been for the ULR folks.

I gotta say, the *content* of the broadcasts these days really turns
me off on two levels: one is the sameness - regardless of station,
it's all programmed out of the same corporate offices in a way that it
wasn't 30-40 years ago. Worse, the ads are all the same!

The other is that there is so much *crap* on the airwaves! Political,
conspiracies, combinations of same. Back in the day, the most radical
thing you were likely to hear was the stuff from the Chicago
Federation of Labor on WCFL (1000 kHz, Chicago - now WMVP). I'd be
hesitant to give a kid an ultralight these days given some of what
can be heard (and explained the next morning).

But it's still just as exciting to log a new station!

I forgot... the radio itself feels solid,
also the tuning dial is not "centered"
it will incline when tuning, making it harder to read a frequency...

Invitation to Pacific Beach DU-DXing

Gary DeBock
 

Hello All,
 
For those of you on the west coast who are looking for a new DXing challenge during the summer doldrums, why not consider chasing South Pacific DX at ocean beach parks around sunrise? Even though the MW band seems to be in rigor mortis during most of the day, we are actually entering into the peak season for South Pacific DX-- one of the quirks of gray-line propagation related to superb winter-season conditions in the Southern Hemisphere. When John Bryant first told me about this kind of extreme long-range DX in the middle of summer, it sounded like science fiction... but it's all true.
 
You don't need expensive receivers or monster antennas to participate-- or even an FSL on an ocean side cliff, All of the signals linked below (some quite exotic) were made with simple Ultralight radios and 3' (or 4') portable box loops at ocean beach parks near sea level. The biggest challenge is probably getting out of bed at around 4 AM local time to be at the beach around the first break of dawn. From then on, your DU-DXing results will depend on propagation, local QRM, and luck. Unlike Asian TP-DX signals, South Pacific DX almost always requires a healthy dose of salt water for good results-- and can reach astonishing levels over an all-salt water path (even on simple equipment). The most important advantage that you can give yourself is persistence,,, the determination to show up at the beach as often as necessary to give you the South Pacific DXing results that you desire. You might get a phenomenal propagation opening the first time that you show up, or you might strike out completely. If you are persistent, though, you will probably come away with some exciting South Pacific DX sooner or later-- and a new appreciation of AM-DXing opportunity during the "summer doldrums."
 
For those who are interested and have questions, please feel free to post on the list (which is viewed by several transoceanic DXing experts) or contact me directly. Good luck!

The auroral conditions were subsiding by the time it was dark here last evening. I tried to listen but the northern stations, including 990 CBW, were returning. I noticed some of the TV/FM DXers were experiencing aurora scatter DX.

Other than 1220 Radio Globo, I don't know what Brazilian stations to listen for. Here, that frequency is dominated by 100 kW XEB in México. Surely I will hear South America on an ULR at some point. Too bad they're not on the splits like when I heard them in the early 1970's.

Best wishes for a happy Canada Day weekend and more good DX.
