Hi Rob,
 
    I'm glad the Franken-ULR is scaring up some great Graveyard DX for you!  I've uploaded a photo of this analog avenger on the Ultralightdx photo album, "Roll Your Own DXing Monster."  To my knowledge, It's the only analog ultralight ever to receive Australia from North America (5AN-891 at Grayland, last July).

Hello Guys:

Yesterday I received in the mail a NEW ULR for my Stable of
Receivers!! Thanks to GARY DEBOCK...I am now the Proud owner of a SONY
SRF-39 FP HOTRODDED PRISON RADIO!!! This is one of Gary's experimental
ULR's that sports a 7 1/2 Inch Hotrodded Ferrite Antenna mounted on the
now famous Prison ULR ......replacing the original Tiny Ferrite antenna
the radio came with.

I have nicknamed this Radio the FRANKEN-ULR....as it looks a bit like
Frankenstein's Head with the Bolts protruding from his neck!! HAHAHA. It
is one cool looking Machine!!!!

Tonight at sunset I tried it out to see what it will do. It is VERY
Sensitive.......and pulls out Daytime DX like nobody's business!!!

I sat on 1340 Khz for about 1/2 Hour tonight and just waited to see what
would surface. Well....I was rewarded with 2 NEW Stations for the ULR
LOG...and one of those is NEW to the OVERALL LOG as well!!! These are
ULR GRAVEYARDER's # 64 and 65 as well.

So...anytime I can add 2 new ones to the ULR LOG.......that is a good
day!! I'm happy to add FRANKIE to the Family of ULR's here......and I
guess I have to give GARY an ASSIST on these 2 NEW LOGGINGS!! I believe
there are only 3 of these Radios in existence.....'cause Gary says
that's all he made!! I'm glad to adopt this one as my own!! I'm DXing
with an ANALOG DIAL AGAIN!!! Gotta love it!!

RADIO USED.......SONY SRF-39FP Hotrodded Prison Radio .......ala Gary Debock

Re: One new one at sunrise- WHBK-1460...QUESTION RE: ID on this Station.......

John Cereghin <jcereghin@...>
 

Rob,

The station was way down in the muck (with a listed power of 500/139
watts, it's no wonder!) and I didn't hear any such slogans, but the
signal was not that strong or steady to begin with. Audio was rather
rough at times. I did get the definite call ID (with usual strong
southern accent) and their southern gospel music, but not much else.

Hi John......

When this station ID'd...did they ever ID as "SOLID GOSPEL"...or
"SOLID GOSPEL 105".......

When I heard a UNID last week on 1460 ID'ing as "Solid Gospel

that was IDing as SOLID GOSPEL 105.

Just curious whether you heard any ID's like this from WHBK???

HDTV hash solved! (whew...)

satya@...
 

Hi all:

Thanks to the many suggestions and ideas. I tried 'em all, and the one
that worked was to minimize the length of coax between the little UHF
circular antenna and the converter box. The converter box itself gives
off a little RF but only up close, similar to most modern electronic gear.
However, when you hook up an external antenna, the digital converter
apparently radiates the noise over the antenna feed cable. I had an
elaborate switching network for when I utilized more than one antenna, and
bypassing all that got rid of the noise.

Hope this helps someone else faced with this problem! "Hash" is a gentle
descriptor - it was more like a solid high-pitch whine/buzz which
precluded DX on the lower band. Fortunately, peaceful coexistence has
been restored between my DXing and the girls' TV viewing (in fact, the
signal on the TV is a little better!).

Thanks again - Kevin S

Slider decision, comparison of E100 and SWP (both with filter mod)

MarkWA1ION
 

I have had Steve Ratzlaff modify both an Eton E100 and a C. Crane SWP
for me with the Murata filter.

The modification, in both cases, makes these little radios into
competent foreign DX machines. Selectivity turns out to be
comparable which, I guess, is what you would expect. TA activity was
a bit light last night (best on the low end), but both receivers had
no problem separating Morocco-612 from the
WGIR/CHNC/WIP/WIOD/Cuba "furball" on 610. Closer splits like Algeria-
549 and Canaries-621 were occasionally "sliceable" but needed a bit
more signal strength to be comparable to adjacent domestics. A short
drive away at the shore, these would have been "lead-pipe cinches".

The idea, once both radios were back here, was to choose one to
be "sliderized" by Gary DeBock whilst keeping the other one as-is for
travel demands where fragility of the slider assembly or undue
airport security curiosity could be "negatives".

I am choosing to have the SWP modified with the slider on the
following grounds:

(a) The Eton E100 is somewhat more sensitive above 1000 kHz, about
the same 750-1000, and only a bit "deafer" below 750. Thus it has
the edge over a greater portion of the band than the SWP, so it needs
less help. I can always pull up the Radio Shack passive loop if I
need to peak up low band signals.

(b) The shortwave frequency ranges are less on the SWP, so it lends
itself to being converted to something which will be utilized
primarily for medium-wave DX duty.

In a couple of months, or sooner if the weather is good, I am going
to take 3 to 5 of my more sensitive portables to a local park within
5 miles of several transmitter sites including 50 kW monsters on 680
and 1510. Rejection of spurious responses will be an obvious metric
along with the usual testing for audio recovery on weak daytime
signals (there are many metro-NYC targets at about 200-250 miles
perfect for this) and selectivity next to strong sloppers.

I expect that the slider SWP will be among the select group of high
sensitivity sets, along with the much larger Sony ICF-S5W and ICF-
2010, the C. Crane CCRadio, and others. Preliminary sensitivity
screening here so far shows ICF-S5W as tops in that regard, so it
will be interesting to compare the slider SWP when I get it back.
The outdoor testing not far from several transmitter sites will sort
out the winners from the 'wannabes' in the spur-rejection part of the
game.

Re: ULTRALIGHT DX..... REPLY to JACK LEONARD..RE SONY SRF-...

Gary DeBock
 

Hello Jack,
 
     There is a more current Ultralight Shootout review posted on dxer.ca, the "Ultralight Radio Summertime Shootout," in which the new Sangean DT-400W is recommended (along with the E100).  Since it's currently on Page 2 of the "Ultralight Radio File" section on dxer.ca, many DXers haven't even seen it.  Five models (SRF-S84, SRF-M37W, SRF-M97, E100 and DT-400W) are extensively compared, and I hope it helps you.

I can buy the Sangean unit here in Canada for less than half the cost

wait from the Canadian supplier right now, but I could handle that.
As to the Eton E100, I have come to appreciate that it is a very good
AM receiver and no doubt I will learn to use it better as time goes
on. As to alignment, I'm afraid I don't have the technical skills to
undertake that. I do notice when using the E100 that I can hear
sometimes 1 or two stations "under" the main signal I am listening to
and I think what you mean by alignment would probably help to seperate
those signals?

Your E100 probably just needs a good alignment. Look at John Bryant's

than the T615 at the high end of the AM band. However, it will still

I would use my E100 more if it were not for the extreme nulling

as direct frequency entry and ability to be tune in 1 kHz steps. I
have heard Japan and Croatia in Oklahoma with a barefoot, stock E100.

Sony has it listed in their 2009 "Overseas" catalog for 9400 Yen (~$95) before taxes. I believe the whole point of the catalog is to list items that are supposed to be for sale outside Japan, so it would make sense that some official Sony outlet would have them available.

Interestingly, the catalog also lists the ICF-SW7600GR at 40,000 Yen, which would be $406 at today's exchange rate. US list price is $200. Amazon has it for less than $140. Makes me wonder how much the SRF-T615 would cost if it was actively marketed in the US. Probably more like $50.

Nice conditions overnight. 1380 La Fabulosa question.

Hi all,

added a few more stations to the barefoot tally last night with
conditions favoring southern latitudes.

1700 WEUP Huntsville, AL 1kw USA 06:30 26/02/2009 3909 miles
1660 WFNA Charlotte NC 1kw USA 06:45 26/02/2009 3657 miles

1610 Caribbean Beacon, Anguilla 06:25 26/02/2009
Anyone know what power they use?.

Now up to 414 stations barefoot after a long hiatus with Anguilla
being country number 68 with 5 continents heard.

Also a question on a station heard on my main set up: I had a station
on 1380 with very good peaks between about 0630 and 0745 - non stop
Latin romantic songs Id'ing as "La Fabulosa" signal was very good at
times, with general conditions favoring the southern US / Mexico. I
see a WPYR in Baton Rouge, LA, that is Fabulosa, relaying WFNO 830,
but they have a small nightime power. Im wondering was this what I was
listening to. Wonder were they on daytime output. I have recordings if
anyone wants to mail me off group.

Any info would be gratefully received.

"The Afternoon Praise Party with Ace Alexander". As with most urban
gospel stations, they don't like to run IDs but local ads (with 804

this is one of those stations that I have overlooked. I've logged
them before but always assumed I already had them in my log, which I
didn't.
