Durham Radio Runs Out of Eton E100's

Gary DeBock
 

Hello Guys,
 
     Russ Johnson advised me this morning that Durham Radio of Whitby, Ontario has sold out their stock of the discontinued Eton E100, and that they will no longer be available.  Their web site confirms this. Durham Radio has sold a great number of these NOS E100's to the Ultralight Radio AM-DXing group at the special price of $44.93 (plus shipping), but unfortunately hobbyists desiring to purchase these outstanding compact models will now need to track one down from other sources (at a much higher price).
 
     The Eton E100 was the subject of intensive hoobyist modifications for sensitivity and selectivity improvements recently, making it an extremely capable AM-DXing receiver.  A new Slider loopstick was combined with a Murata CFJ455K5 premium IF filter, giving it unprecedented 9-kHz split transoceanic DX performance among compact portables.
 
     If you would still like to purchase this superb model, it is recommended that you act without delay to secure one from another source.  Please also be aware that the units with serial numbers of E10-0709xxxxxx have an inferior AM design, and are not possible to modify for increased DX performance, according to the articles posted on http://www.dxer.ca.
 
     73,  Gary DeBock     




List of Radios Used to Log 600 Ultralight Stations.........

robert ross
 

Hi Guys:

Several people have asked what Radio(s) I used to log my 600 ULR Stations. Here`s a Run Down.......


SONY SRF-59 Analog...Started with this Radio Jan. 01 2008 (Compliments of Gary Debock)

SONY SRF-39 Analog Prison Radio...Obtained a month or so later.......

SONY-SRF-T615 Digital.....Ordered from JAPAN at the end of Jan. 2008

ETON-E-100 Digital...Ordered from Durham Radio in April 2008 (Later Modified with Narrow Filter and Slider Coil)

SANGEAN DT-400W Digital...Ordered from J&R Radio in NYC in August 2008

And Yes.......I DO have Multiples of many of these Radios!! (Gotta have backups!!)

The First 300 were logged using a combination of the 3 Sony`s.

The Next 300 were logged using MAINLY the SONY SRF-T615 with the Eton E-100 and Sangean used on Occasion.

My Favourite Radio to use for ease of Operation and it`s DX Capabilities is the SONY SRF-T615!! It has heard some amazing stuff...and it is also the SMALLEST of the 5 Radios. If I could only keep one of the ULR`s.....it would be the SRF-T615. Next in Line would be the ETON-E-100 Slider!! But since I don`t have to chose.....I`m gonna KEEP `EM ALL!!.....because they are all great little DX Machines.

The First 500 Stations were all logged BAREFOOT...using NO EXTERNAL ANTENNAS or DEVICES.

The Last 100 Stations were logged using a 2.5 Foot Homebrew Tunable Box Loop, or the E-100 SLIDER COIL ANTENNA, or a PK Tunable Passive Loop which was purchased from AUSTRALIA...and is quite GOOD!!

All 600 Stations were Logged from INSIDE MY HOME......The Majority of them from the BASEMENT!! Other DX Locales were.....The Bedroom (When I was Lazy) and the Dining Room Table when I wanted to Spread things out a little!!

So there it is.........You don`t need 3 Acres of Land to achieve this feat.....just lots of Patience and Lots of Luck!!...and Lots of TIME!!

73...ROB.

Re: ULTRALIGHT DX....ULR # 600 LOGGED and 601 and 602

Hi Rob-

Congratulations! I knew you would hit 600 well before the deadline. Now you can relax until next year :)

I believe I just surpassed the 100 station point today in my recently began ULR log. If I am able to hit 600 by the end of next year, I will be very lucky.

73s,
Brandon in Memphis


Re: ULTRALIGHT DX......OK..It shouldn't be this hard!!!!

ronshire2000
 

try a different location or even within the house. try a different
time of day or night to get your 600. so close you are and i know you
will get it Ron

ULTRALIGHT DX....ULR # 600 LOGGED and 601 and 602

robert ross
 

HI Guys:

Well...after 13 Hours of Listening to static...I have finally Logged
ULTRALIGHT STATION # 600!! However..the parade did not stop there. Today
was one of those days where all the stars aligned and along with Logging #
600....I heard 2 More to bring the totals up to 602. All 3 of these
stations are NEW to the OVERALL LOG as well.......and they are also ULR GRAVEYARDERS # 49, 50 and 51. As well...the Last Graveyarder logged is also
my 1200th BCB STATION heard OVERALL!!! So...it is a TRIPLE PLAY
Today....and brings my Ultralight DX Year to an amazing end!! It was
looking real bad earlier today as the conditions this afternoon were real
POOR at best. I was hearing NOTHING again...and then all of a sudden the
floodgates opened!! I was still hearing good stuff when I was called to
supper.....but I already had # 600....and a few spares...so I reluctantly
trudged off to the Feeding Trough!! AHHHHA

Here are the STATS that bring me to where I am today in ULR DXing.......

First ULR Station Logged JAN/01/2008
600th ULR Station Logged DEC/28/2008

Elapsed Time to achieve 600 Stations was........362 Days (No Listening was
done during May, June, July, and almost all of August)

Along the way I have heard..........

567 Domestics
34 Latins
1 European
51 Graveyarders
36 States
5 Provinces
11 Countries
3 Continents

And who said you can't have a Bag of Fun with 2 Penlight Batteries!!! HAHAHHA

Thanks to everyone who paved the way for this great Sub-Culture of AM BCB
DXing...and to all who offered encouragement and helped me during the
Trek!! It has been a pleasure to be Part of Ultralight Dxing's First
Year...and a Great Year it has been for all involved!! I hope my
enthusiasm has spilled over to a few of you...and truly hope that you are
having as much fun as I am!!

For those who have not yet become involved with ULR DX'ing....I hope you
will give it a try and experience what 100's of others have found to be a
Refreshing kick to Am BCB DXing!!

Am I having Fun????.....OH YEAH!!

Radio used for todays DX was.....SONY SRF-T615 with 2 1/2 Foot Homebrew
Tuneable Box Loop.

ULR LOG TOTALS are now............602 Stations Heard.

Congrats on logging NC.WBT was the one and only station i logged from
NC that i loged when i was back in Oklahoma.Now it is a regular here
as is NC through many other stations from that state.But then again
we are probably no more than 50 miles from the NC border from here in
Maryville.

Congratulations Rob,
 
     You probably thought I was a little nuts a year ago, when I claimed that the SRF-59 could hear real DX on the AM band.  I'm sure happy you at least gave it a try, and didn't stick it away somewhere. 600 ULR stations in one year is incredible, and your legendary enthusiasm has created legions of new ULR fans throughout the world. Thanks for your great accomplishments, and I'd have to say that your $16 SRF-59 is the best investment I ever made :>)

ULTRALIGHT DX......OK..It shouldn't be this hard!!!!

robert ross
 

Hi Guys:

Well...after logging ULR # 599 yesterday morning..I figured by this morning......# 600 would be in the Bag and I could sit back and relax. NO CIGAR!!

I DX'd 4 Hours at Sunset last night..at least another 4 Hours through the night..and about 3 Hours at Sunrise this morning...and didn't log a single station that was new!!?? I heard a lot of Good Stuff...even WJOE on 700 Khz again.......but no way could I find a NEW ONE!! A couple of times I got all excited thinking I had a NEW ONE...and it turned out to be a RELOG!! DRATS!!

I even used various Radios thinking that might help...and I got the Wife to BUZZ all my Hair Off...thinking that a BALD HEAD might be Lucky!! All that did was make me look like Buddha!! AHHAHHHA....Where`s my Horseshoe.....

I guess that's what makes this hobby Fun..never knowing what is gonna happen!! The previous 2 Days were Great, yesterday and this morning just plain STUNK!!

Most likely when I do find # 600 I will log about 5 other new ones within an hour of hearing it!!

I still have 4 days left til the end of the year ...so hopefully I can squeak one more out before then!! I will not surrender....but I sure hope I'm not in one of those 5 Days Droughts!!

I'll be back at the dials this afternoon about 1400 EST.......hoping something better happens today.....

The Propagation Gods are making me work for this!!

73...ROB.

Cajun Radio 1470

Kirk Allen <kirk74601@...>
 

Saludos Fellow DX'ers,

This morning's DX session brought in just one new ULR logging, but it
was a fun one for me. I hrd this one on the E-100 slider plus the SAT.

1470, KLCL, Lake Charles, LA, 1300, 12/27, Apparently this sta must
have switched to their daytime power of 5 kw because it appeared out of
nowhere. I had been on the freq for about 10 minutes trying to ID an XE
when this one came blasting in. Initially I hrd what sounded like a
heavy-duty Cajun song in progress. M ancr w/ ID very shortly
thereafter. "Broadcasting...on 1470, we're Cajun Radio, KLCL, Lake
Charles, and 1290, Jennings." (ULR Station #410)

For you Cajun mx fans, here's the link to their online streaming audio:

Rob,
Truly amazing my friend!! Wow, you're definitely going to hit that
600th station no doubt about it. You certainly have the patience of
Job, and it's paying off big time. I've got the DX party hat waiting
for your 600th station. I'll definitely celebrate with you in spirit
when it rolls into your radio!

Re: new ULR loggings tonight in Ohio

Joseph Miller <radiodxer2000@...>
 

Too bad I don't understand Spanish better...as
there's stuff all
over the lower half of the AM dial (i.e.: something under
WSB 750,
under CKLW 800)...and a SS on 600kHz.....haven't a
clue.

One of them (I believe the 750 kept saying Chile...and
Andes (as in
Andes Mountains). Who the heck can figure that one out with
just
those two pieces of "information").
Congratulations Tim.

You just logged Venezuela on 750. I'll have to dig in my logbook for more precise details, but several members of IRCA and NRC identified this one for me when I heard them about a year ago. Your description certainly seems to fit. AND YOU DID IT ON A ULR!!!! WAY TO GO!!!

Re: ULTRALIGHT DX..... Few More New Ones...+ UNID HELP NEEDED!!

John Cereghin <jcereghin@...>
 

Rob,

About that station on 1490- it's unlikely to be Lancaster because, as
you said, Lancaster is not in the Laurel Highlands. It's hilly around
Lancaster but no mountains (I go to Lancaster all the time)! A
Lancaster station usually IDs with something like "Lancaster County",
so it's probably not WLPA.

ID given by Male DJ @ 1400 EST as "AM 1490 FOX Sports Radio Network

Laurel Highlands"??? Into Sports Talk. I'm pretty sure he said "Laurel
Highlands??"
I know for sure he said HIGHLANDS!! I'm thinking that this MAY be WLPA
Lancaster
PA....but I think it is too far EAST to ID as LAUREL HIGHLANDS?? Maybe
there are
some other Highlands south of me......but I can't find them!! Does
anyone
near Lancaster
know if they ID as Laurel Highlands?? If so...this is them!! If not...I
have NO IDEA!!
PLEASE HELP...this should be IDable!! This will be NEW so I'd really
like
