Thanks Gary.
558 is difficult here due to Radio Botswana.

Nice catch, Peter!

558-6WA in Wagin, Australia was also the station received on the Rockwork ocean cliff (near Manzanita, OR, USA) for the second longest all-time Ultralight DX distant record in 2017 (on a CC Skywave and 17" FSL antenna). The 14,705 km (9,138 mile) distance was only about 100 km shorter that Gary Deacon's record reception of 850-KOA (Denver, CO, USA) in Fish Hoek, South Africa.  https://dreamcrafts.box.com/s/cze5omzc1x01p28gpdo44wylhdl61l6y

Thanks Gary.
I read about the Fish Hoek DXpeditions some years ago. Australia was received by wrapping the end of a long wire around a Sony SRF-M37 ultralight.

Awesome DX, Peter!

By the way, the all-time Ultralight DX distance record was another 850 kHz U.S. station received in the southern part of Africa--
850-KOA in Denver, Colorado received by Gary Deacon in Fish Hoek, South Africa. As I recall, he used a Tecsun PL-380 coupled to a Beverage on the salt water beach.

It is well worth having a read of this, I learnt a lot about the area and Paul's adventures.

Well done.
2WG stops me from hearing 6PB from home. I do often keep an ear out for it.

Peter,

This isn't off topic-- breakthrough SDR DX gives us a hint of which stations are good targets for Ultralight DXing!

During the recent Rockwork Cliff DXpedition I was side by side with multiple SDR-DXers, and we gave each other tips about which DX stations to chase. The Ultralights + FSL's had a reception advantage on the extreme low band frequencies like 531 and 558 (one frequency at a time), while the SDR's + broadband loops excelled on the extreme high band.

Thanks Paul,

There were lots of times during this trip that I could have used an Australian English translator!

Thanks Jay,

The ocean cliff environment is indeed a wild new venue for DXing, but there's a good reason why 6 guys set up their antennas on this plunging cliff. After some initial skepticism almost all of the Northwest TP-DXing group now has become true believers in an ocean cliff's ability to enhance transoceanic DX signals. At least two west coast records were shattered in this DXpedition (total number of DU's received in a west coast DXpedition, and total number of South Pacific NDB's received).
