Re: November Hawaii DXpedition Loggings & MP3's (530-783 kHz)

Paul Blundell
 

Excellent report as always Gary, you have given me a real kick to get prepared for my mini DX trip later this month to an East coast beach.

With multiple stations from both Asia and the South Pacific showing up every morning (along with sunset loggings of several South Americans, two from the Caribbean and one African station) this trip was really a thrill for all of us. Craig Barnes, Australian Chris Rogers and yours truly hit the beaches each day, frequently at both sunrise and sunset. With so much DX in play at that awesome spot the file review just up to 783 kHz has taken some time, with 80 transoceanic loggings and MP3's compiled so far.

With another Aloha State trip to Maui scheduled for later this month, Craig and I are highly motivated to give it our best shot (and I'm highly motivated to finish up the file review for this November trip before that :-). If any of you are feeling bored by going to the same ocean beach over and over, Hawaii will provide a permanent boost for your hobby enthusiasm! :-)

Maybe, this is Philippines or Korea? Is there anybody from South-East Asia?

Re: Finding DXing Locations

Paul Blundell
 

Thanks for the excellent information Craig. 

Until now I have pretty much just found spots as I have been out driving but want to be more organised. I am heading down the East Coast in a few weeks and have put aside some DXing time.

Hi Paul,

Proximity to the ocean is a great place to start. I have found Google Earth to also be handy to help identify the suitability of a site. Public park areas by the water work well sometimes. When selecting lodging I always do a Google Earth survey of the establishment. I find waterside picnic tables are handy places to set up. An Azimuthal (Great Circle) map developed on the AZ_PROJ: Azimuthal Equidistant Map website. A It's free and you can generate a variety of maps by plugging your coordinates into the software. Different map sizes and regions of the world you would like represented. Handy to add to your excellent DXPedition kit. The equidistant azimuthal maps can help identify the water path to DX. Due the presence of Australia to your immediate north, perhaps beach or ocean cliff sites affording long water paths to the east, west and over the South Polar region might be worth checking out. Grey line maps, available online can also help identify potential propagation paths. I hope this helps a bit. I'm sure others can expound further on this.

I am looking for some advice to possible DXing locations and what you look for in these? 

Do you have anything specific which helps to narrow down a good location or do you try a lot and then come across ones that have something special about them?

Complete Portable Ultralight Radio DXing Kit - Feburuay 2020 Update: 29/02/2020.

Complete Portable Ultralight Radio DXing Kit - Feburuay 2020

Update: 29/02/2020.

After using this case for a couple of weeks, I decided I needed a way to keep my 3" FSL and radios off the ground and also allow me to rotate them together for nulling out stations and using the directionality of the 3" FSL to the best advantage.

I have cut some MDF to the required size and then have mounted a metal base to this which is then bolted to the lid of the case. It allows it to be rotated 360 degrees if needed

Re: KWKH 1130 The Tiger - Strong Signal into SE Houston

Steve Ponder
 

Thanks for the reply. I also liked KWKH better when they used the country format. I grew up in the Shreveport-Bossier City area, so listening to country music on KWKH was a given. KWKH was my father’s favorite station. It was the go-to station for news, weather, and information for the Ark-La-Tex back in the day.


KWKH’s studios are located just off Interstate 20 west of Shreveport, while their transmitter site is located in north Caddo Parish off of Interstate 49. They have 3 towers. They use one for Daytime operation and all three for Nighttime operation.


73 and Good DX,

But other great DX like 558-Fiji is available out there around sunset on the eastern Tasmanian ocean beaches, especially now that 558-7BU has shifted to FM. Go get 'em!  :-)
