I'm really enjoying mine. If you run into a weak signal it works very
well with a passive loop such as a Select-a-Tenna or Terk loop (I have
both; they perform identically). The Terk is cheaper and much nicer
looking.

Great Job, John...

That E100 is a real radio, eh? I was sure having difficulties with
my own patience and toleration of frustration using the SRF-39FP,

Guide to using passive loops now posted at DXer.ca

satya@...
 

Hi all:

Just posted on the DXer.ca web site is an 8-page guide to using passive
loop antennas. There is so much more you can do with these besides simply
delivering more signal to your portable radio or desktop loop: increased
selectivity, adjacent channel notching, co-channel phasing, image
reduction and more.

Check it out at by clicking the Ultra-light File area tab at DXer.ca.

Re: Logs 10/22/08

John H. Bryant <bjohnorcas@...>
 

John,

Don't I recognize your name from the "Good Old Days" in either NASWA, NRC, Fine Tuning or some such??? My problem is that I'm so old that there are too durn many Good Old Days :>)

I know what you mean about noise, though I am fortunate to live in a fairly noise-free environment right now. You, in the townhouse, and the E100 are excellent candidates for a couple of strategies in the Unlimited Class of Ultralighting.  First and easiest would be using a small air core loop inductively coupled to the E100: Something like the Terk or the Select-a-Tenna.  That route might give you a better S/N ratio plus a better chance to null at least some of the noise.  Kevin Schanilec has written a fairly advanced article on using such small loops in the last 6 weeks... a wonderful article that has been published in several of the club bulletins.  Kevin will be putting that article up on our Ultralight Files area on dxer.ca in the next few days.  He is also writing a more basic (near beginners') article that should be out soon.

The second route would be to turn your E100 into what will soon be a classic Unlimited set: the "Slider E100."  That amounts to transplanting a 7.5"x.5" Type 61 Amidon ferrite bar and sliding tuning coil onto the E100.  A brief look at how to do that is covered in one chapter of the four part series of short articles on hotrodding the E100 by Gary DeBock, Guy Atkins and me.  We are all so convinced that the Slider mod is the number one way to hotrod an Ultralight that Gary and I have spent quite a bit of time putting together an expanded step-by-step article (7 pages!) called "YOU CAN DO THIS! More About Building the Slider E100." We are flabbergasted that so few people seem interested (so far) in this wonderfully simple (two screws, two solder joints!) and relatively inexpensive mod (under $30).  The Slider mod. turns the already great E100 into a flat out DX Demon!

So, the second way to go might well be turning the E100 into a Slider version.. especially with the outboard antenna mod, too. That would allow you to use the full range of tricks to beat the urban signal to noise radio.... including two room-size single turn vertically-oriented loops (around the walls) that could even be phased together before insertion into the Slider E100.

If you get the idea that I'm running my own hobby with one eye firmly on the day when I, too, may be in a townhouse, you would be exactly right :>) Anyway, that YOU CAN DO THIS article will be announced and posted on the dxer.ca website soon.

So, John, keep us up on how you are doing with the E100 and don't forget about the Awards program (look on DXer.ca for details) and, if you are so inclined the FALL FOLLIES, which start tomorrow.

Hi John, yes I am very impressed with the E100 and have not really done much DXing in some years. My challenge now is noise. I live in a twelve unit town home, condo situation and the noise floor is very high. Might have to bundle up and sit on my small front porch or go hang out in the car somewhere. Not sure what else to do, but winter does get cold in Wisconsin.  LOL

Robert,

I think its the Cleveland station, too, but they WON'T ID or make ANY
announcements!!!!!!!!!!!!! Nothing but continual music. I listened
for an hour this morning, and still nada. And they don't have a
webstream to check.
