Hi Paul,

I finally got my other FCC link to work. This is all U.S. 50 state + territories AM broadcast. Licensed only. No foreign stations outside of the U.S. All are presumed to be on the air but list does include the "silent" ones - those stations which have requested temporary silent status. There are about 87 of them at this time.

I saved the list in .PDF form. There are clickable links in the .PDF which take you to each station's FCC record. Grab this .PDF while you can. I can't guarantee it will be up there indefinitely. Data as of Feb. 16, 2022.

Hello Ola,

Welcome to our Ultralight radio group!

The 19cm (7.5 inch) loopstick XHDATA D-808 model is in high demand worldwide, similar to the demand for small FSL antennas. Unfortunately I don't have anywhere near the free time to build these models for sale, although I have given out quite a few of both items.

Since you are a serious DXer and are deserving of such a model, if you will send me your address in Sweden (by private email or Facebook message) I will ensure that you receive a new 19cm loopstick XHDATA D-808 model. I'm sorry that I can't do this for anyone else, but the full construction article for this model is posted at 
https://dreamcrafts.box.com/s/5d0pi85jfptgmrj4pd0jsmaybgb6gteh

73 and Good DX,

Not at all, maybe also look at some of the FSL designs he has done.

Right now I’ve got this solution. 20cm ferrite with capacitor. It’s not fancy but works better than internal ferrite

Hi Dirk! Thanks for responding but I don’t think I gave the skills even if I got an manual

I think, you will have to DIY.
But there are descriptions, the discussion was here:

No I don't think so,I wish I knew somewhere to get one,I know it's a specialized made and not available but maybe somewhere on planet earth someone will fill the void after I have seen and read so much about them of course I would like to try one.🌞

Re: FCC Station Listing or another source

Paul Blundell
 

I have given that some thought and have now downloaded both lots of information.

The ACMA data was easy, I just downloaded the PDF and linked directly to that. 

The FCC data was a bit harder but I cleaned that up and have downloaded it and linked to it. 

Does anybody else have any links or relevant information I could link to?

I am not sure if the site owner would be happy with that. Government sources are much less likely to cause issues.

Yes, it does. Takes a while to load. The FCC site is a bit wonky lately.

That link does unfortunately include all the FCC's data on Mexico, Canada, and Central and South America. Highly unreliable. I'd throw that part out I it were me.

Hi Drifter!

You got it right. This ferrite antenna works perfect. Sometimes better than round small loops

Hi Ola
Welcome to the group, I’m fairly new myself, but unlike you I’m just starting out in the hobby. I was fascinated by your antenna collection, I don’t know what the middle one is, but I was able to find out more about the third here:

I attach the link for anybody else to read.
