Logged My FIRST "D" Station

Paul B. Walker, Jr.
 

Had english classic hits music on 1611khz shortly after 1400UTC here in Alaska and it in theory could've been a few stations based upon a broad oldies/classic hits definition.  I wasnt having any luck finding a matching webstream.. then i heard some commercials in what I presume to be Filipino.... DING!  DWNX Milaor (Caramines Sur)

Again you continue to impress us with your experiments with FSL's and this looks like a great little project.

Using Amidon 3/8" x 4" ferrite rods instead of Russian surplus ferrite, the Micro FSL weighs in at 1 pound 13 ounces (.82 kg), and can fit in a large coat pocket. Despite this compact size the antenna is a tiny firecracker for AM-DXing gain, as demonstrated in the YouTube video at the following link.

Since all of the construction parts for the 2.8" Micro FSL are readily available here in the USA, the airport-friendly antenna should provide a great new option for traveling DXers looking for a huge gain boost in exotic locations overseas.

Nice report Jorge. A good read!
I am interested to see more of the comparison with better conditions.

going from 17kw on 1116 to 5kw on 882? Yes theyre going to a lower frequency  but i dont think theyre going to gain much of anything here
I found this table ...

Transmitter coverage in accordance to power (kw) during light hours with an average receiver, built-in antenna or 1 m wire in the summer

kW Long Wave 700 1500 KHz
--------------------------------------------------
0.1 60 30 20 kilometres
1 100 50 30
10 200 100 70
100 500 300 150
1000 1000 500 300

Over the sea reception is much better.

KUAZ 1550 Tucson Heard In Alaska

Paul B. Walker, Jr.
 

Here's the audio of KUAZ from Friday September 15th at 5am AK Time.. the music is KGMZ San Francisco, Channel Q.... the flutter in KGMZ's signal is the carrier of KLUAZ coming up, I think... and when you hear a brief interruption in the KGMZ song, that's KUAZ causing that.  The KUZ announcement is a bit hit hard by KGMZ's music but you can hear it fairly well and the NPR programming becomes a bit clearer, even.
