Yeah, a lot of work to get it ready but will be well worth it.

Moving House - New DXing Location

Paul Blundell
 

Of late my DXing time has been limited due to work and family commitments. I have been working on MWDXerDB and am making some good progress on this. 

The exciting news is that shortly we are moving house, out of town to a farm, this has a few benefits for my DXIng:
- I will be 26km away from my local pest station on 1008kHz, instead of 7km.
- Less RF as the farm is well away from other houses
- More space to setup my DXing gear
- Access to a couple of private hill tops, this will help with the FM side of the hobby and tracking down some low power stations, being well away from the RF soup which is the city area where I currently live.

This is going to be a fresh start, I am going to start new logs and once I get a feel for the difference this makes to what I can hear and how well, I will be planning some new challenges.

I use a mix of paper and PC based. As you know I have been working on MWDXerDB for a while and of late, this has been my focus (more so than DXing). I hope to have some progress of this in the next few weeks.
I have attached my 9KHz log sheet and the latest MW radio list from the ACMA.

Hi Issac,

 I mostly use old school paper log sheets in 3 ring binder(s). I bought some blank logging sheets from Universal Radio in Ohio years ago and I just copy the blanks on my printer whenever I need new ones. Fred still has those blank logging sheets listed on his Website. Portable, I just jot down in a steno type note pad and "smooth" entry it in my binder log later. I used a program called "DXtreme" on my computer for a number of years when I was doing MW and SWL listening and logging and chasing QSL's and veries. Great program and he still sells the latest version, but I don't know the price. It was a tad "pricey" as I recall, but really worth it for everything you can do with it, especially with SWL/MW/LW/UTE listening, because most other programs or paper logs are Ham oriented.His site has a "walk through" last time I was there, so you can check it out.  He also has incredible follow up support for questions and "problems.  It will be interesting to see what other people recommend. Hope this helps, Regards, Larry

Notes

Issac Quincey
 

My process to note down what I hear, when, where and how has, until now been a mix of pad paper, post-it notes and random scribbles. As I DX more, this is getting harder to manage.

What options exist in both physical and digital forms? I know that somebody on here was working on a database type system but this seems to have died off. Is Excel all I need?

Decided to give SW another try after several years, and was rewarded with: 

15/5/2022, 0210-0220 UT, 9975 kHz
KVOH with "Saturday Night Jazz" program, violinist Stephane Grappelli playing "Jealousy."

heard on Digitech AR-1733 w. whip.

WBOB Maintenance Test AGAIN TONIGHT--BUT WITH MORSE CODE & SWEEPS

Les Rayburn
 

For everyone who didn’t manage to log WBOB 600 last night, never fear. The station will be repeating the test again tonight starting at Midnight Eastern Time (0400) but this time will be running Morse Code IDs, sweep tones, off-hook SFX, etc. which are much better able to cut through the noise and static. 

Don’t miss your chance…stay up late and have some fun!

No WBOB here.  Had my local KROD partially phased (I'm in one of its lobes) and just had it and XEHW in Sinaloa.  I also had a little bit of QRN and noticed some weather farther east in Texas.  I'll probably try again tonight.
