Twelve Days In:
Over the weekend I was able to spend some more time using my 
Retekess V-115 and found a couple of interesting things:
- The battery meter shows "full" for a decent period of time and then drops off quickly, this caught me out as I took it out and thought it had more charge than it really did.
- The "automatic search and store" works well but requires a good signal level to log a station, the ATS on the AR-1733 works much better and does not need the signal to be as strong.
- I have been unable to get auto power off to work, it shows the right icons but does not actually turn off after the desired time period.

No plans at this stage. MWDXerDB does what I need and I am comfortable programming in JB.

Low Power DX Targets

Paul Blundell
 
Edited

990kHz = 3RN / 500w. Other stations on frequency carry different types of signals or are further away.
 
1053kHz = Brisbane HPON / 500w. Easy to seperate from 2CA and distance will result in a good index score if successful.
 
1098kHz = 2RN / 200w. Other stations on frequency carry different types of signals or are further away.
 
1215kHz = Bowral HPON / 350w. Other stations on frequency carry different types of signals or are further away.
 
1359kHz = Mildura HPON / 200w. Only station on this frequency.
 
1485kHz = 5LN / 200w. All low power station, most likely target.
 
1602kHz = 3WL / 250w. All low power station, most likely target.
