Ultralight Longwave DX-- LWBC and Alaskan NDB Opening

Gary DeBock
 

Hello All,

It was a mediocre morning for medium wave TP's, but three Radio Rossi
Longwave TP's (189, 234 and 279 kHz) made it through with poor-fair
signals, and there was again threshold audio (female-voiced news after
1300) on 164-Mongolia, // 4895 kHz (equally weak). A few Alaskan NDB's
made their first October appearance here this morning, although none
were new.

219-GAV Gustavus Fair-good at 1255
266-ICK Annette Island Good at 1245. mixing with VR
385-OCC Yakutat Fair w/TWEB weather report & ID's, 1300
391-EEF Sisters Island Good at 1305, all alone
394-RWO Kodiak (presumed) poor level TWEB broadcast, 1258

Re: SRF-59 showcased in season opener of House

Peter 1956
 

He said he watched it on his radio! The PL-310 will cover the TV audio for system M channels 3,4,5 and 6 (Channel 6 audio is 87.75MHz)

Maybe he listens on analog TV channel 6 (87-something mHz) in a country that still has analog tv? I used to do that (in the U.S.) with my radios that covered the lower part of the FM band. Even had at least one car radio that went that low.

Puyallup, WA Ultralight TP's for 10-4

Gary DeBock
 

Hello All,

Longwave broadcast was back in strength this morning with Radio Rossii
good on 189, 234 and 279 kHz, and fair on 153 and 180. 164-Mongolia had
weak female-voiced news after 1300 UTC, which I was finally able to
confirm with the equally weak 4895 kHz SW parallel on an ICF-2010 for a
new Longwave TP here (209-Mongolia was received last month).

After the 1575 kHz mystery yesterday this morning's TP conditions here
didn't allow much investigation, as the audio was weak at best. The
Japanese big guns (594, 747, 774 and 828 kHz) were doing well, and
738-BEL2 (Taiwan Fisheries) had decent strength but the same
transmitter issues, with a raspy carrier and throbbing hum on its
audio. A puzzle was a completely pure sine wave carrier on 657 kHz from
the Asian direction, meaning either that Pyongyang was off the air, or
that its transmitter has been fixed (highly unlikely, it would seem).
936-Anhui, 972-HLCA and the 1053 Jammer were also decent at times here
this morning, but not at steady levels. In general it seemed like a
fairly average TP session on MW here.

Updates to Ultralight Firsts and Records Lists

Gary DeBock
 

Hello All,

There have been some exciting breakthroughs in Ultralight radio DXing
results recently, including several new distance records for certain
transmitter power levels, and new DX countries received on Ultralight
radios for the first time in North America.

Our most prolific Ultralight radio transoceanic DXer (Allen Willie of
Newfoundland) is preparing an update of both the Ultralight Firsts and
Records Lists, so if you have received any exceptional DX recently that
qualifies as an Ultralight radio "first" (new DX country received for
the first time in North America, first transoceanic reception of
certain continents from a specific location, etc.) or "record" (a
record-breaking distance for specific transmitter power levels, or for
certain propagation paths, etc.), please forward your details to Allen
at vo1_001_swl@... . The current Ultralight First and Records Lists are posted on both DXer.Ca, and the Ultralightdx Yahoo file site.

Please note that these Lists are currently limited to Medium Wave
loggings, although we are all aware that many new ULR countries have
been received on Longwave recently from North America (on both coasts).
The new ULR Longwave Awards program is still being organized, so until
the program is up and running, please keep accurate records of your ULR
Longwave DX loggings (both LWBC and NDB) until further notice.

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

Monday Morning DX

Kirk
 

This is the second try at posting this message here on the group. Hopefully this one will take. Last week I bought new batteries for the Sony T-615, so this week I hope to give that little radio a good work-out. This morning was great for starters. Two new station were captured by the little rig.

910, WPFB, Middleton, OH, 1135 UTC, 10/3/11, tuned in to local ads, one ment'd Cincinnati. ID of sorts hrd 1139, "WPFB....radio in Cincinnati..." . Minimal copy and was only discernable for a few minutes.

990, XEER, Ciu. Cuauhtemoc, CH, 1230 UTC, 10/3/11, playing mostly pop styled mx. Lcl ads w numerous Chihuahua mentions. Announcing a slogan I couldn't quite copy, "...nuevo setenta." Mentions of "Romantica nueve noventa" and one "Radio Lobo" ID copied just before fade out 1255 UTC. From 1240 or so, there was another XE in there that sure sounded like one of the Baja stations. I suspect it was XECL...they were playing some pretty good rock and roll jams. I hrd a few ments of Baja California, but nothing like an ID was copied before they faded out.

I hope everyone has a good week.

Ultralight CLE147 Final (Puyallup, WA)

Gary DeBock
 

Hello All,

Despite modest conditions 5 new stations were logged here during this
CLE on the Tecsun PL-380 Ultralight, assisted by a 12" diameter Ferrite
Sleeve Loop antenna. Conditions were good to Canada on the last day,
but despite detailed efforts there was no reception of Hawaiian 332-POA
(previously heard here on Ultralights, but requiring special
propagation to get through the 332 maze of daytimers LBH and WC).
Thanks to Brian again for his excellent CLE organizational efforts.
