Re: Wow! Oh, WOW! A Japanese Morning from OKlahoma

John:

I awoke early and was surprised to hear JOUB 774 at good signal
strength on a barefoot SRF-T615 at 1101-1108. I heard hets on 693,
747, 828 and 972 kHz between 1114 and 1127 UTC. Afterward I was
chasing domestics, except just before 1200 I had a strong het on 774
that faded into the WBBM/XEMF QRM. A few minutes later when I checked
it was all KSPI (why don't you walk over there sometime and pull the
meter for me - only joking).

I've spent a lot of time listening to the 972 het and have yet to hear
any audio. Sometimes it's very strong around sunrise.

I guess I should have been listening with the G313e instead.

The conditions were somewhat erratic overnight. Except for a couple
of stations in Saskatchewan, most of what I was hearing was to the
south. I pulled in XENK 620 for the first time this morning by
nulling a strong CKRM signal at 1218. Only a trace of KMKI and KTAR.

Have a good Thanksgiving. Myself, I'm off to Wellington for a family
get together.

Ultralight Award Submissions..........A Special Request......

robert ross
 

Hi Guys:

Thanks to all Ultralight DX'ers who have submitted Logs for Ultralight
Awards the past few months. We have issued a Ton of awards and it looks
like everyone is having a lot of FUN DXing with ULR's and hearing some
Monster DX.

One request I would like to make for those who are submitting Logs for
AWARDS...........

Please let me know what CLASS OF RECEIVER you are using and submitting the
Logs for.

The 2 Classes of Receivers are.....

BAREFOOT CLASS

UNLIMITED CLASS

Since we have separate Awards for each Class...we need to know what you
used to obtain the Award. It is also helpful if you list the Model of Radio
or Radios you used.

As we issue more and more awards....it gets more complicated to keep track
of what Classes each member has submitted for in the past....so please help
us out and let us know what Class of Award you are submitting for.

Thanks for the co-operation.......keep up the good work with the
Ultralights. Hopefully our 2nd year of Ultralighting will be even more
productive than our first!!

73...ROB (For the ULR AWARDS COMMITTEE)

Wow! Oh, WOW! A Japanese Morning from OKlahoma

John H. Bryant <bjohnorcas@...>
 

We are just settling in here in north central Oklahoma and I only have the NW-SE leg of the Wellbrook Array up and running. Snuggie the DX Kitty got me up at 1200 (LSR=1310) and almost on a lark, I tried 774 for Japan with my hotrodded NRD-535... nothing.  But there was a definite het on 747 (about a 2 or 3 on the NW Scale).  I decided to try 828... just a 2, but clearly a het, so I decided to do a quick sweep of the band, starting at 531, as usual.  NHK1  Morioka is almost always there on decent JJ mornings from my NW site... but almost always at "mumble" level. No way did I expect a het on 531 from here in OKlahoma...BUT, there it was, at a 2!  There were better hets on 567(!), 594 and 693, but nothing was close to audio.

I had other things to do and hoped that LSR here would bring more bounty. It did.... not great amounts, but still really amazing from OKlahoma:

531: Persistent weak het (NHK1 Morioka)
558: Persistent weak het (JOCR Kobe)
567: NHK1 Sapporo peaked right after 1300 with JJ audio... time pips, weakly, at the TOH. Heard on Slider E100+Wellbrook
585: Persistent weak het (NHK1 Kushiro, Hokkaido)
594: Strong het at dawn with hints of audio (NHK1 Tokyo)
666: Strong het at dawn (NHK1 Osaka)
675: Persistent weak het (this is "always" Vietnam in the NW, but there are a couple of 5 kW NHK1 stations here)
684: Weak het here at LSR (I have no idea who this was!)
693: Peak caught at 1252 in "imaginary level" Asian audio (NHK2 Tokyo)
702: Peaked at LSR with weak audio in Asian lang. (Almost certainly North Korea) Heard on Slider e100, too
747: Persistent weak to moderate het (NHK2 Sapporo)
792: Weak het at dawn (South Korea???)
828: Persistent weak to moderate het (NHK2 Osaka)
954: Weak het at dawn (JOKR, Tokyo)

1566: Weak het at dawn (HLAZ, South Korea)

The fact that I've just completed listening to East Asia on MW every morning for three months in the Northwest was, of course, a huge help in knowing where and what to look for... What I found, of course, was a classic low band opening to Japan with virtually all of the usual suspects present.  After the surprise of the whole thing, the remaining surprises were the hets on 675 (Vietnam???), the total absence of 774, NHK2 Akita (it is almost always the strongest of the 747//774//828 group) AND the fact that the audio came not from one of those three but rather from 567 kHz., NHK1 Sapporo.

I might add that the only Far East stations (even as hets) that I've ever heard from here previously have been 747//774//828//873, though this is so difficult that I've rarely even tried in recent years.

We are leaving here in a couple of hours to spend five days with extended family in Ft. Worth, TX and I'm struggling with attitude and priorities :>) With luck, maybe Richard and Kirk Allen can use the list above as a starting place for an Asian Thanksgiving.

"Yet More on the Plywood Slider" posted to dxer.ca

John H. Bryant <bjohnorcas@...>
 

In the month before I left the Pacific Northwest for the winter, I managed to complete three more versions of the Plywood Slider e100. Each was different from the one before and each attempted to simplify the Mounting Board and/or the supports for the ferrite rod. Each used differing combinations of coil design, external antenna connection, etc. All three variations are covered in large photos and discussion in the article "Yet More on the Plywood Slider e100" that has just been posted to dxer.ca

That article closes with an invitation to submit your versions of the Slider, with brief explanation. If you would send such directly to me or to Gary DeBock, we'll be happy to post it on dxer.ca.

Now that I'm back in northern Oklahoma, my DXing buddies here have suddenly stopped hearing TAs.... durn it!!!

Re: [NRC-AM] Ultralight Question

Gary DeBock
 

Hello Allan,
 
     Thanks for your question about the Kaito KA-1103's qualification for Ultralight Radio definition.  The Ultralight enthusiast group has developed some detailed guidelines on which receivers qualify for Ultralight radio awards and contests, and which do not.  Please refer to the "Updated Ultralight Definitions and Master List" posted in the Ultralight File area on DXer.Ca  (http://www.dxer.ca) for full details
 
     We have a committee of three members, which reviews new applications for Ultralight Radio status.  The new applications should follow the guidelines specified in the file referenced above.  There is a great variety of approved Ultralight radio models, both analog and digital, ranging in prices from $14 up to $100.  Everybody should be able to participate in the Ultralight Radio DXing fun this winter.
 
     73,  Gary DeBock 




Re: Milestone Reached

Gary DeBock
 

Hello Kirk,
 
     Congratulations on reaching the 300 station milestone, all received on Ultralight radios.  I really admire anyone that can accomplish this feat, especially because I have never dared to try this myself (my west coast location leads me to believe that I would fail the Rob Ross Challenge).  Maybe a west coast Ultralight fanatic will reach 300 stations someday, but it will require someone with more patience than me.
 
     Thanks also for giving the John Bryant Slider loopstick a good workout, and great work on your fantastic transoceanic and domestic receptions.
 
     73,  Gary . 




Re: Ultralight Radio Anniversary Award for Colin Newell

Congratulations, Colin! This award is well deserved, as you've done
so much to pump enthusiasm into UL radio and DXing in general. It's
been fun to watch your dxer.ca Web site grow in popularity and
influence in the DXing community, too. It has become a "must visit"
site for many in the hobby.

Have fun filtering out that Hawaiian QRM with the hotrod E100 on your
trip next month!!

I look forward to visiting with you and Andrea again, perhaps next
time in beautiful Victoria.

Guy

Sorry that I missed the actual unveiling of your First Anniversary Founder's Award last night. We had an actual non-radio-related social engagement last night! 

Congratulations on your richly deserved award, Colin. Your generosity and support has been essential to both the initial growth and the current maturity of Ultralighting. We each owe you a great deal.

Somehow, I suspect that new, hot, Slider e100 will get a real workout on your eminent trip to Hawaii :>)

     On the first anniversary of the Ultralight Radio boom, the perpetrators of this crazy new phenomena would like to award due recognition to one of our most influential co-conspirators.
 
      Without the continual contributions of Colin Newell in encouraging, supporting and disseminating essential information and communication regarding all aspects of the Ultralight Radio movement, it is highly doubtful that the enthusiast group would ever have been formed, much less become the huge, extremely enthusiastic group that exists today.
 
     Colin's early suggestion of a formal review of the Sony SRF-59 Walkman radio in November of 2007 (and his offer to publish it on his outstanding web site, DXer.Ca) was absolutely instrumental in starting the Ultralight Radio group's formation.  His continual offer to publish equipment reviews, technical articles, contest communication and other essential Ultralight Radio information has contributed greatly to the explosive growth of the niche group, as well as elevating DXer.Ca into the status of one of the premier radio-related web sites   Colin's personal interest in reviewing various compact receivers has helped many potential purchasers, and his posting of diverse DX station audio recordings has helped all of us hear the sounds of exotic DX, regardless of the anemic performance of some of our pedestrian receivers.
 
     Colin's personal interest in the Ultralight Radio movement has had the influential effect of making Canada a true stronghold of pocket radio DXing, leading to the outstanding achievements of Rob Ross of London, Ontario, Allen Willie of St. John's, Newfoundland, and Greg Schoom of Toronto, Ontario, among many others.  Those Canadians who received sample Ultralight radios (and alignments) can thank Colin for his early contributions to Ultralight radio, helping to start the movement that generated such international comradery.  Today the Canadian contribution to Ultralight Radio is extremely strong, and dominant in many outstanding aspects.
 
     Lacking John Bryant's creative ability to design a beautiful Award Certificate and frame, I (Gary DeBock) have decided to award Colin with the next best thing:   A personally created, fully-modified Eton E100 model (Slider loopstick and Murata CFJ455K5 IF filter), deviously designed to outperform any portable on the planet in 9 kHz split DXing.  This latest innovation has the technical contributions of four fanatical Americans (John Bryant, Guy Atkins, Steve Ratzlaff and myself), to express our deep appreciation to Colin, and to all Canadians, for the outstanding contributions made by our northern neighbors to the booming Ultralight Radio DX movement.
 
     On behalf of the Ultralight Radio group leadership, I take great pleasure in presenting this Founder's Award to Colin, and hope that all of you will join me in thanking him for his impressive contributions to the cause of Ultralight Radio DX!
 
     73 and Best Wishes,
 
     Gary DeBock and John Bryant (for the Ultralight Radio DX Group)

Hello Guys,
On the first anniversary of the Ultralight Radio boom, the perpetrators of this crazy new phenomena would like to award due recognition to one of our most influential co-conspirators.
Without the continual contributions of Colin Newell in encouraging, supporting and disseminating essential information and communication regarding all aspects of the Ultralight Radio movement, it is highly doubtful that the enthusiast group would ever have been formed, much less become the huge, extremely enthusiastic group that exists today.
On behalf of the Ultralight Radio group leadership, I take great pleasure in presenting this Founder's Award to Colin, and hope that all of you will join me in thanking him for his impressive contributions to the cause of Ultralight Radio DX!
73 and Best Wishes,
Gary DeBock and John Bryant (for the Ultralight Radio DX Group)
