Thomas,

I was there with a couple of ultralights this past weekend. Downtown Vancouver has a ton of RFI. If you plan to DX there, go to Stanley Park, Kitsilano Park (good locations), or somewhere a little outside the city proper. I found the background noise to be nearly absent in Kits Park, many Seattle AMs were clearly audible during daylight hours at 120 miles.

Regards,

Ooops, sorry I hadn't received the earlier message about the Pl-505. The ultralightdx daily digest had yet to arrive!

BTW, early next month, I look forward to doing a little MW DX with my Pl-380 and G6 in West Vancouver. Will be a first for this east coast listener! Hope to catch some of the DX I read about here.

Cheers,
Thomas

Thanks!

I might have recognized the Radio and Component name, which is how I listed his store in my favorites. I am sure I have ordered from him, and been happy with what I received.

I also saw this on ebay, and chased down a pdf file, but the file is an
image on a pdf, and can't be translated. So its for Chinese readers only
at
this time. For those interested, the info(spec) file is

http://www.degen.com.cn/chanpinshuo/DE321%E8%AF%B4%E6%98%8E%E4%B9%A6.pdf

I do not see mention of what DSP family the chip is. It *is* labled DSP
on
the radio itself, and cost is a mere US$21 shipped from an ebay seller.

The set is physically smaller than an R-911/WRX911/PL200/PL210. I do note
in
the picture that the bandspread looks uniform on AM, an indication that
DSP
tuning with analog control is quite possible.

Ultralight Longwave Firsts and Records Lists

Gary DeBock
 

Hello All,

Thanks again to Allen for updating the ULR Firsts and Records lists,
which are now posted in both the Ultralightdx and DXer.Ca file systems.

As many of you are aware, because of extensive Longwave antenna
experimentation last winter by many in our group, the Tecsun DSP
Ultralights suddenly became quite competitive in Longwave DXing (both
for Longwave Broadcast, and NDB's). North American ULR-DXers like
Richard Allen and Rob Ross suddenly began receiving multiple Longwave
TA's from Europe and Africa, and here on the west coast Mongolia was
recently received as a new Longwave TP. The new DX season should
provide many more such opportunities, for those willing to give
Longwave transoceanic DXing a try.

Also last winter the new Longwave-capable Tecsun models became
reasonably sensitive for NDB reception, starting an Ultralight
beacon-chasing craze which has spread even among the traditional
NDBlist Yahoo group. Ultralight radio beacon chasing provides a new
challenge for those with NDB-DXing experience, making them depend upon
their propagation knowledge and DXing skill for success, rather than on
the latest in communications receiver technology. Ultralight NDB-DXing
has already provided a lot of thrills for its participants, including
the new Longwave DX countries of Samoa and Norfolk Island from here on
the west coast of North America, as well as the current Ultralight
Longwave DXing distance record (6,795 miles).

The Ultralight Longwave DXing groups are just getting started, but we
would certainly like to welcome our European, South African,
Australian, New Zealand and South American DXers to jump into the
Longwave DXing fun, and participate in the new Longwave Awards program.
Patrick Vignoud of France has already received a Longwave DXing Award
for 15 DXCC countries received in Ultralight NDB-DXing, and many such
opportunities exist for European Ultralight DXers to receive multiple
DXCC countries in Longwave Broadcast DXing.

If you have interest in either of these new Ultralight Longwave DXing
niche groups we would encourage you to express your opinions about the
type of awards you would like to see, and keep accurate records of the
Longwave DX that you receive on your Ultralight radios. If you would
like to volunteer as a Longwave DX records keeper for our Ultralight
Radio enthusiast group, that would also be greatly appreciated. Such a
volunteer would create and maintain Ultralight Longwave Firsts and
Records files, similar to the excellent Medium Wave DXing lists
maintained (and recently updated) by Allen Willie. For an active
Longwave DXer, such a volunteer duty would be a excellent opportunity
to keep track of the latest accomplishments in Ultralight Longwave
DXing, and give helpful support to our fast-growing LWBC and NDB-DXing
niche groups. Thanks are aso in order for those LW antenna
experimenters who have helped our Ultralight Longwave DXing niche
groups get started, and become another thrilling option for pocket
radio DXing in the future. For all of you who have pushed the limits in
Longwave antenna experimentation, the ultimate fanatic salutes you!

73 and Good DX,
Gary DeBock (in Puyallup, WA, USA)

Good Day All,

Tnx very much to Richard Allen's recent tip, I bagged one more new XE this morning on the T-615 w/ SAT. Tnx, Richard!

790, XENT, La Paz, BCS, 1200-1125UTC, 10/11,11, tuned in to the XE NA at the TOH followed by tlk by a W ancr. She made mentions of "en Satelite" several times. "Satelite" is one of the IDs that have been reported from this station. Numerous mentions of "Grupo Formula" were hrd as well. Minimal QRM during the peak around 1210 UTC. Don't confuse this one w/ XEGAC in Jalisco which was hrd here recently also w/ Grupo Formula IDs. Sta #815, LAm # 175-

After a hard night's work, a good breakfast, and some good DX, the sand-man is beating me down, so I bid good DX to everyone and best of 73 from northern Oklahoma.

hmmm, I hope there is some form of whip/ferrite isolation. Seems that an FM frewuency bead should be placed from the hot side of the AM ferrite to the whip ant. input. maybe 2000 ohms at 100 MHz. (laughs, the bead is prolly needed for SW rather than AM)

It is Silicon Labs solution based design, but I am not sure the detailed p/n...MAYBE 4734 also...

I also saw this on ebay, and chased down a pdf file, but the file is an image on a pdf, and can't be translated. So its for Chinese readers only at this time. For those interested, the info(spec) file is

http://www.degen.com.cn/chanpinshuo/DE321%E8%AF%B4%E6%98%8E%E4%B9%A6.pdf

I do not see mention of what DSP family the chip is. It *is* labled DSP on the radio itself, and cost is a mere US$21 shipped from an ebay seller.

The set is physically smaller than an R-911/WRX911/PL200/PL210. I do note in the picture that the bandspread looks uniform on AM, an indication that DSP tuning with analog control is quite possible.

It is my understanding that Degen has thier own "DSP" chip, it is not the Silicon Labs one. Tecsun apparently does have license to and uses the real SiliconLabs DSP chips. However, Kchibo has some high ends that do have the real Silicone Labs chip, and most mid-price and low-price Kchibo's use the Chinese "silicone chip" as Degen does.

It can get confusing. Before you buy, it would be wise to query the seller on ebay.

OK, one of the things I was looking for was weather the FM was DSP, and the AM was analog. Seems like a waste, but it has been done before... I think the 777 is that way. The PL100 omits the AM entirely.

Re: Ultralight radios.

ferrite61 <dxrx@...>
 

Unfortuneately, the Tecsun is not considered an ultralight, because the cubic volume exceeds 20 cubic inches. Size does matter in considering an ultralight. Howeveer, you may refer to it, as a performance check of an acceptable ultralight. The PL-600 might compare as a little better or worse than an ultralight.

For example, I have an Grundig G5 purchased used for under $100, but its too big, and has SSB that disqualified it from being an ultralight. When it comes to "beacon-hunting" I often compare the G5 against the acceptable Tecsun PL-210. (Its a total mis-match, the G5 is way better than the PL-210.)

Hi Guys,
Whilst my Tecsun 600 may be considered an ultralight, I also have a Sangean ATS 909/Roberts R861, Question being would usinug it on this site as an ultralight be OK.

Marc,

Botnets invest the targeted website and are independent
of the recipient OS. Botnet detection is the only safe way to
identify and control them. Some protection programs
include botnet detection and eradication, some do not.

I also use Linux. Formerly less exposed, it is becoming
more vulnerable, as are Mac OS. The bad boys are
ever more cunning and prefer you to assume they
are NOT out there or cannot affect you...

Bonne nuit!

Installation of automatic botnet detection software
is advisable. Many sites are piggybacked by invisible botnet
installers. Downloading a file can give the bad boys
access to your PC, which will then be used to disseminate
malware, unbeknown to you, and at the same time selling
on your IP and/or email address to bulk malware vendors.

Botnet detection software will alert you and and enable you
to delete the hidden file which would otherwise include you
in a botnet. Each one will use some of your resources and
may not otherwise inconvenience you, but it will lead
to thousands of other PCs being affected and possibly
infected. Do not underestimate the botnet threat.

The .ru file referred to is being used to install botnet file
on PCs which are not sufficiently well protected,
but it is easily removed. Not all are so easily deleted.

The jpgs linked to below appear safe.
