Re: SRF59 owner from Uruguay. First logs

Horatio,

It is so good to see another such experienced and highly regarded DXer join the Ultralight ranks!  It seems almost like yesterday that Fine Tuning, Numero Uno and SWBC DXing in general were so vibrant and challenging. Welcome to the Ultralight Community!

Your first set of loggings, if I remember, included 5 countries... so you are already eligible for one of our awards. As you may have noticed on DXer.ca, we have quite an extensive awards program, all based on stations heard, rather than stations verified.  The application is very easy, via e-mail directly to Rob Ross and the certificates are also sent via the web.  They are based on reproductions of some of the most beautiful radio art from the first decade of broadcasting and are sent at 150 dpi, so that they print very well on an ink jet printer. They look good on regular white bond, but look really great when printed on a home inkjet onto photo paper.... or they even make great screen savers :>) There is no cost involved to anyone.

I don't know how much you care about awards.... attitudes vary widely amongst us.... however, I've found that the various awards are good for me for setting of personal goals.  I'm standing at 67 Latin stations heard right now and I'll move heaven and earth to get to 70 (the next award level).  It will be even sweeter if I beat my DX buddy of 25 years, Kirk Allen to that number!!!

I'm sure that you have noticed that we have also been keeping records of most distant receptions. That list, updated soon, contains one section of records of North American DXers, but the other is open to record receptions world-wide. We hope to see your name in there one day soon.

Most of all, though, Horatio, Ultralighting is just flat fun... a lot of fun... and starting a new Ultralight log book is very gratifying... allowing you to log many "new" stations.  As Rob has found out (he stands well above 600 stations heard, ultralight), we all do actually end up logging quite a few totally new ones, too.. but the Ultralight challenge itself is just fantastic fun.

Welcome aboard, Horatio!

OK Robert, Also logged in SW here, back in 1982. I still have the recording sounding from the Hammarlund HQ180. What a sound on the boatanchor...!!! It was during the second DXped organized by my beloved DX Club del Uruguay, now defunct. Well, I would say Falkland Is. is not a very hard catch here, besides it appears to be exotic to you. It's nice, but helps the fact that it's on a quiet frequency. For me Chile is still a challenge nowadays!

The chip inside the SRF59 does the trick! Look forward to be included in a set with all the known features one could expect for a receiver (memories, digital readout, line out recording). And the magic of the SRF59 and it's ingenuity is what gives to the story all the magic. These ULR times resembles the times of the first MW DXers, trying to get the different US States, back in the 20s and 30s.

FALKLAND IS. 530 FIBS, Port Stanley, 2320. Talks by man. This is the earliest time I've got this one. With the Degen DE1103, it showed much later in past months, past local midnight and always fighting with LV de las Madres on same fq. With the SRF59 the nulling was razor blade, discriminating the angle by one grade un the horizontal plane. Great experience!












Horatio....I have NEVER seen a Logging of the FALKLAND ISLANDS on 530 Khz!!!! THAT IS AMAZING...even for South America!!!

I heard the Falklands TWICE on Shortwave... Many years ago...and it was a thrill!! I'm sure everyone on this list is green with envy!!

All of your loggings were great Horatio..... .but the Falklands on AM BCB...with an SRF-59.....WOW! !! Keep 'em coming Horatio!!! I'm really going to enjoy your future loggings..I can tell already!!

Re: looking for transatlantics

MarkWA1ION
 

Some of the stations on Allen's list are blocked by locals here, but
a good number are audible on a reasonably regular basis.

Granite Pier in Rockport, MA (about an hour's drive time away)
approximates Allen's location much better as it is right on the
coast. In the warmer weather I do mini-DXpeditions out there, not
just with my "serious" receivers (RFSpace SDR-IQ and Drake R8A) but
also with various ultralights. "Semi-lights" such as the Kaito 1103
are also sometimes used.

Stations not on Allen's list that I find fairly common here are:
Algeria - 549
Spain - 585
Morocco - 612
Canaries // Spain - 621
Netherlands - 747 (sometimes mixed w/ Canary Islands)
Germany - 756
Spain - 774
Mauritania - 783 (sometimes w/ tough CFDR slop)
UK - 882 (sometimes mixed w/ Canary Islands)
Algeria - 891 (w/ WAMG nulled)
Algeria - 981 (w/ WCAP nulled)
Spain synchros - 1107 & 1107.13 (causing growl)
Spain - 1116
UAE - 1170 (after WFPB s/off, before WWVA fade-up)
France - 1206 (easy)
UK - 1215 (typically over Spain, Albania, Kaliningrad)
Spain - 1296 (over UK, Sudan)
Germany (VOR) - 1323
Spain - 1359 (can be superloud around transmitter site dawn)
France - 1377
Germany {and/or} Algeria - 1422
Ceuta - 1584 (over Spain SER)

For sheer signal strength, the Saudi on 1521 is usually the master
blaster of TA's. I have noted it within 10 dB of the night pattern
strength of local WWZN - 1510 (50 kW at 9 miles, 74 dBu or 5 mV/m
according to V-Soft).

Hi Guys,

Welcome all the new members coming on board with us lately and hope
you are having fun dxing with your ULR's .

Larely some of the guys have been experiencing their first taste of
transatlantic stations .

Because of my location here in Newfoundland I am fortunate to
experience these on a nightly basis even though at times they are
somewhat diminished in signal compared with the great conditions
experienced here in the autumn of the year for transatlantics

I thought I would share some of the stations and frequencies with
everyone that I hear here which are generally the stronger ones heard
from my location. Hopefully some of these will poke through and
provide you possibly at your location with a few new countries to
add to your logs.

Strongest heard here routinely as follows:

693 khz - BBC Five Live Droitwich, England
711 khz - France Info, Rennes, France
720 khz - KNR , Simuutaq , Greenland
675 khz - NETHERLANDS, R. Maria Lopik

     The 6090 kHz parallel makes it easy to check the identity of the Anguilla beacon on 1610, but for those wishing to hear how it sounds on medium-wave coming into western Washington, an MP3 has been uploaded to the file section on ultralightdx.  This was recorded on a new C.Crane SWP Slider unit (7.5" loopstick) at 0740 UTC on 2-25-09.

Re: Recording from the SRF - 59 to a mp3 recorder

satya@...
 

Hi Horacio:

If you can get something like the Radio Shack volume control for headphones
http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2102975
that would be my recommendation. I used a home-made attenuator for a
while, but this little volume control works great.

Kevin S

Maybe something from here...
http://www.gcarter.us/Articles/attenuators.pdf
I now SRF 59 is 32 ohm output but dont'know the output level that the
DE1103 gives which is the perfect value and matchs OK with my Zen MP3
player/recorder.

the words i copied from a previous message on this group



"See John Bryant's article "Recording Audio from Ultralights, Part 1" on

if i understand it correctly, they use the inline volume control to

keep the audio output to recorder at a low level while listening on at

set of earphones.

Maybe some guy can tell me how to get a line level audio from the
SRF -59.

I intend to use a T stereo adaptor (plug/jack) one out to earphones
the other to the mp3 recorder. But I need a low audio -line out-
level- in the sort the DE1103 provides. Maybe, a resistive matching
network?.

What are you guys using to log stations and does the method check for

I'm mostly just interested in a very simple log that automatically

entirely DSP from RF input to AF output, and appears to be housed

I see that the Tecsun PL-600 lists for 328 Yuan, so the PL-310 with
its
spiffy new DSP may list for 10% more than the PL-600. The PL-600
