Marvelous article, Gary!  What a lovely pic of your cliffside (Oregon) DXing site and the very blue sea -  I can hear the singing hetrodynes now!  Way back in the early-mid. 80s when I rolled out long (1100 ft. / 330m) Beverage antennas from a tent-DXing site atop Mount Vision (Inverness Ridge) in the Point Reyes NS - Marin County, Calif., the additional altitude of 1100 feet above sea-level (thus a much greater view out to the distant horizon) really ENHANCED TP DX - especially DUs and Hawaiians, compared to the near sea-level beachside DXpeditions.  It is possible the much farther-view of the horizon allows for the really low-angle "combined constructively-phased groundwave-skywave" effect to occur - TP signals would stay in post sunrise for longer periods compared to the near-sea level sites at Abbotts Lagoon and North Beach (all within Pt. Reyes National Seashore).  As such, I think that really FAR OUT horizon view in your photos in this article is also an added factor WHY TP DX is so superior there (as it was atop Mt. Vision for me).

73 and thanks a lot!,

SPMcGreevy "OFSL" (open FSL) loop test-results and photos

Stephen P. McGreevy
 

It has been a few months since I reported on the results of what I now call my “OFSL” or “Open Ferrite Sleeve Loop” that I had constructed around a 16 oz. / 453g size Folgers “Classic Roast” plastic jar, in that the six 200mm (R40C1 type) are not adjacent to each other as I have seen of Gary’s designs, but are widely spaced around the jar (I had only ordered six of the rods for initial testing/experimentations).
The OSFL loop - previously I’d dubbed “the Ugly Duckling FSL”  - employed an external (and large/heavy) old Soviet 60-600 pF var. cap. that is designed for transmitting with widely spaced rotor/stator plates), and it was rather “kludgy” to rotate easily.
It occurred to me that a smaller open-air var. cap. could be mounted inside the jar’s red lid along with a small SPDT switch to switch in the off-center tap of the Litz winding and some fixed “padding” caps of about 330pF.  As such the loop is “dual-band” and goes down to about 340 kHz just incase I wish to use it in the upper NDB band and in the former Maritime segment (430-510 kHz).
The result(in the photos) is a very robust and quite water-resistant OFSL that is lightweight and marvelous for taking on Expeditions - even just into a knapsack as I walk out of my small town into a noise-free location.
In-yard comparisons with a considerably larger air-core “diamond” loop find that the OFSL has vastly higher-“Q” (sharper tuning) and it also has higher-gain than the larger stand-mounted diamond open loop due to its larger induction-field and the advantages of Litz wire.
I can’t wait to take this on a flight to Hawaii (maybe this November 2019) on a DXpedition tentatively planned in a similar fashion to Gary’s Kona (Big Island) Hawaii DXpeditions.  
Include a couple of photos for presentation here.  The OFSL makes AM stations with “barely audible audio” in the daytime to clear/clean copy provided there is no local noise nor QRN (such as 740 KCBS, 620 KIGS, 1070 KNX and many others).  Tests were made with one of my two trusty Sony ICF-SW6700GR portables.  I can imagine with a modified ultralight portable with switchable pass-band filters, this would be even more superb for coastal DXpeditions!

Re: 7.5” Loopstick LW antenna

Gary DeBock
 

Hello Igvitk,

My current 12" Longwave FSL antenna is a slightly more sensitive version of the 2015 model 12" Longwave FSL, the design photo for which is attached.

The ferrite rods, frame components and size of variable cap are all the same, although the 660/46 Litz wire has been replaced by 1162/46 Litz wire, which provided a sensitivity boost. Because the 1162/46 Litz wire has a larger diameter than 660/46 wire, though, I was not able to fit enough coil turns on the ferrite sleeve in order to get the start frequency down to 153 kHz. This didn't bother me, though, since the start frequency is now around 195 kHz, which is fine for chasing long range South Pacific and Asian NDB's during a DXpedition.

The variable cap has also been replaced with the razor-sharp tuning "384P" type from Oren Elliot Products, which improved the overall performance of all of the FSL antennas used during the recent Rockwork Cliff DXpedition. That type of variable cap is also now the tuner for the "Frequent Flyer" FSL antennas, three of which we plan to use this November in Poipu, Hawaii.

73, Gary DeBock (in Puyallup, WA, USA) 


Re: 7.5” Loopstick LW antenna

igvitk
 

Thanks, Steve and Gary. I will follow your advice and add extra turns to Amidon rod to increase the inductance. Gary, where can I find information about your 12" Longwave FSL? I like LW DXing and would like to make more powerful antenna than 7.5" FSL.

Can’t make it to the convention this year—but would love to see this presentation. Any chance of sharing the materials afterwards? Even better-could someone videotape the presentation and provide a link? 

This technology is really adding a lot to the hobby. Thanks to all who are spearheading the effort.
