Hi PAUL!
Well the post is very good and light. But maybe you can take these
suggestions if you think they're ok:
1- some bold words to divide the post into parts, i.e.: Choosing
location; Radio Gear; Extra gear, etc.
2- maybe you can link the database to part of the text to MWDxerDB
post? assuming you're using it to log

OFFtopic: would you consider updating/tweaking your MWDxerDB to have
SW/FM stations?

All for now, and thanks for your post.

Radio Size

 

How hard are you on the size limits? Can a slightly larger radio be used?  


Re: LONG TERM DX Projects

 

Have you had much luck with them? What is your current one?

It really is so important to get the next generation involved. I am sad when I see how little they have to do with hobbies like this these days. Do you do much to promote the hobby in your part of the world?

Early on with the lock downs here and some of the rules that were put in place it did as I didn't feel that ultralight DXing in public was a good look and didn't pass the "exercise" test.
Now it is much better and other than social distancing, it is not an issue.

Re: New Kmart Radio

 

What radios do you have?
I am still looking, thinking something cheap off ebay until I decide if I want to stick to it or go back to my bigger radios. Getting out and about sounds great for me.

I was recently looking on the Kmart website (for something totally different) and came across this radio. https://www.kmart.com.au/product/portable-radio---black/3468809

I can't find much about it online, does it look like any other "known" radio? for $20, I might just grab one and see how well it works.
