Wonderful night for Transatlantic signals as I heard many very
strong considering the recent solar flare activity. Glad to be a
part of this new group and will keep the logs coming .

Re: I'm here.......anyone signed up yet??? New ULR Arrived today too!!!!

Good morning all!

just to say 'hello' to the group.

I am not good at logging, but two receptions with a SFR-59 were really nice
and memorable to me:

2006-07-08 0851 Netherlands Antilles - TWR 800KHz (R Transmudial in SS and
PP). Heard PP id in my apartment in Porto Alegre (30S 51W). ''Barefoot
mode''. SINPO 32322.

2005-11-14 0600 Virgin Islands - WDHP 1620KHz. An fulll hour of nice jazz
music. Heard in Ilha Comprida beach in southeast Brazil (25S 48W). Used an
auxiliary external ferrite antena called 'RGP3'. SINPO 43333.

Both were head about 2 or 3 years ago. The distance was ~ 3200 miles/5100km.
One can say those are not really difficult (TWR runs 500-600KW, reception at
beach is wonderful), but they were really distant-receptions :)

via EBAY from a store in Oshawa, Ontario.........via Gary Debock in
Washington!! Radio made a 4000 Mile trip to get to me 120 miles from where
it started!! it's a long story....but it's here....and I'm happy to get
it!! Gary also did a Tune up on the BCB reception for me before he shipped
it....so it should be all set to go!!

Looking forward to communicating with ALL ULR Users ....here on the New

Hello fellow ultralight dxers,

Thanks for the invitation to join the utralight dxers
group. Worked today on using the SRF 39 fp with the
Space magnet ferrite loop antenna. Increased signals
during day light hours, now need to try it on skywave
signals are night.

ULR Radio Lineup here at VA3SW Land.................

Hi Guys:

Nice to see Allen, Brett, Gary and John already on the list
here.......hopefully the rest of the gang will straggle their way over here in due course!!

With the addition of the New ETON-100 which arrived here today from
Washington State........my ULR STABLE now consists of the following
Radios.......

SONY SRF-59..............................2 Gary Debock Aligned/Tuned Up
Models .

SONY SRF-39 Prison Radios.........2 Gary Debock Aligned/Tuned Up Models.

SONY SRF-T615...........................1 Factory Stock Model from JAPAN.

ETON-100.....................................1 Gary Debock Aligned/Tuned Up
Model.

Hope to add more Rigs as they become available.........or they find me!!!!

I will be heading to the ODXA RADIO CAMP next weekend (April4-6)...and all
of the above radios will be going with me.....should have enough ULR's
there to let Everybody try one out!!!! Maybe we can convert a few people at
the camp and sign them up for this new reflector as well!!

At one point of my "CRAZY COLLECTING CAREER"....I owned over 500 different
Transistor Radios from the 1950's and 1960's....the little Pocket
Transistors we all grew up with. Many of these sets were NON WORKING
sets....but were collected just for the Fun and Beauty of the Early sets
from Sony, Toshiba, Zenith, Hitachi etc. That collection of Transistor
Radios has been sold over the Years.....but I fear I may be on the way to a
NEW COLLECTION......of "ULR's"....which I guess are just a Newer version of
the Old Pocket Transistors!!! What a vicious circle....

Anyway.......that's what I'm using here for ULR DX.....but I must admit
that I tend to stick with the T615 Sony for most of my DX....as the Digital
Readout makes the whole exercise so much more enjoyable. Maybe the New
Eton-100 will prove just as nice with it's Digital Readout and 200
Memories. It's little bigger and HEAVIER than the T615 however.....it still
fits into your pocket....but it will make the Fabric SAG a little! HIHI.

As Gary mentioned we got our ETON-100's for a ridiculous Price of $27.01
via an EBAY Auction......Right Place....Right Time for once in my Life!!
HAHHAHHAHA...

Unfortunately I have been experiencing a Loud BUZZ at my QTH for the last
week or so......don't know if it's something here in the house...or one of
my Neighbours.....haven't tracked it down yet. Only noticeable when I
orientate the ULR's in a NORTH/SOUTH direction. Hope it either goes
away....or I can at least track it down and remedy it!!

OK Guys...lets fill up my Mailbox with ULR Postings!!!

73...ROB.

I just got the info on this group and signed up. I've been collecting
ULRs for the past few months and have been having a ball with them. My
current lineup includes the SRF-39/39FP/49/59. I just took the Sangean
DT200VX on a trip to Texas and had a blast picking up Mexican stations
at night from the hotel room.

Looking forward to some good discussions...

Hi Rob,
 
     Well, I'm now part of the new group too, brother!  Glad your E100 arrived, and I think you will find it gives your SRF-T615 a stiff challenge on the high end.  For the rest of you, if you have interest in an Eton E100, consider buying one from Durham Radio in Ontario.  They are selling units which have a loopstick coil that can be peaked for top low-band performance, unlike other E100's out in the market.  Rob and I got our E100's on an eBay auction for $27.01.. the ultra-steal of the century, for this top quality model.
