Re: Air loop vs Ferrite loop

Steve Ratzlaff
 

Purely my own opinion and not based on direct comparison tests, but I'd say a square loop of 8-10 inches might give equivalent results to a 200 mm long ferrite rod. I'm assuming both loops are tuned with a capacitor, not untuned loops. And if you could use Litz wire of maybe 175/46 or larger, that would help too. But if just standard wire then use the largest gauge you can find/afford, hopefully #18 gauge or larger (in AWG wire size, I don't know the metric equivalent size).

Good luck!

FYI to All Group Members,

The new UltralightDX@groups.io  group has been created, but is not yet officially "approved" (which should take less than a day, according to Groups io). Please wait for additional information about the transition.

Thanks Tony (and all),

Fellow Ultralightdx Moderator Rob Ross and I have had our discussion, and we both agree that a transition to Groups io would be a good idea. We will proceed with the transition, assuming that Yahoo doesn't try to torpedo our ship as it departs the harbo(u)r.

Moving to groups.io
Yahoo have put a spanner in the works in the last week disrupting the transfer of sites and are working on a workaround so delays can be expected at this time. Worth the wait. As they mirror the yahoo site it still remains but becomes redundant. My last post announced the new site.

It seems like it will be the best way forward.

I have had issues with files not uploading and post not coming through for hours in some cases. I was looking for a file I uploaded a few years ago which was here one day, gone a week later and then it came back.

I'm currently a member or moderator of 4 groups which have moved from Yahoo Groups to groups.io, and it is painless. Beyond that, groups.io, being more or less of a specialist organization dedicated to groups offers some features that Yahoo never did. I'd recommend the move, especially given that the future of Yahoo following its recent acquisition is at best cloudy.

Hello Andy,

Tony King also suggested this a few months back, so the Kiwi vote is unanimous. I'm sure that soon, Theo D. and Tony Magon will concur.

I'll discuss this with my primary partner-in-crime Rob Ross, who is also an Ultralightdx Moderator (and who has been running this show with me for 10+ years). Tony K. assured me that the process is easy, and that we only need to take the plunge.

Yes, Bob (I should have waited for your vote).

As a member of the NZRDXL, who am I to disagree with such an overwhelming consensus? Theo D. (my Kiwi English translator) would no doubt make some type of interesting comment if Rob and I drag this out much longer.

Portable Ultralight Radio DXing Session - Talbot Road Lookout - 4/1/2018

Paul Blundell
 

This morning on my way to work I undertook a portable Ultralight radio DXing session from the Talbot Road Lookout. This is one of my good to spots, it has a great view in all directions and normally produces good results. 


Most of my loggings were fairly normal for this location and time of day, 2XL from Cooma on 918kHz was a bit of a surprise.
