XEMF-780 Heard under WBBM

Steve Ponder <n5wbi@...>
 

For the past several nights, I have been able to hear
XEMF "780 Radio Nostalgia" under WBBM with a good, clear
signal. Early this morning (Saturday 23 Aug 2008 at
0330 AM CDT/0430 AM EDT) I heard a slogan that sounded
something like "La frecuencia del amor" and then a good
ID, "XEMF 780 Radio Nostalgia en Monclova, Coahuila."
BTW, I've been using my "yellow-jersey" Sangean DT-400W
and a pair of Koss "Sparkplug" earbuds.

I'm loving the DT-400W more and more each time I use it!

73 & Great DX,

Delayed Report :Grayland Day Four

John H. Bryant <bjohnorcas@...>
 

Friday morning was my last DX session for this trip to Room 15 at the Grayland Motel and it went much more as I had expected for yesterday... less intense, more gentlemanly (in modern-speak, would this be "personly?"  Completely different meaning and poorly spelled.)  Conditions were down noticeably from Wednesday and Thursday's excitement, so I cruised around the band from 1100 onward (LSR 1325).  A goodly number of re-logs... Japan and China were doing better than anything else and, though the DUs showed after LSR, they were weak and spotty.  Still, it was a great morning for me. Before dawn, I managed to add three more TPs to my Ultralight log.

I pretty much though that was going to be it, but then I cruised by 801 just at dawn where a woman was reading a long Biblical quotation. I had noted a station in EE here at bandfade yesterday, but it was too weak to have a chance at ID. After 20 years of DXing TPs, I don't have anything heard, much less verified on 801, so I was very interested.  I figgered it for an Aussie, though Aussie stations running religious programs are rare, and I noticed a an obscure 5-call in PAL that was at least a possibility.... excitement, plans for war dances, if it lasted until 1330 and I caught an ID.  It was sloooowly fading by 1325 and I happened to reread that page of PAL and it all came clear.... KTWG, Agana Guam!  It almost had to be!  Almost everyone else of the NW TP DXers has heard Guam at least once, but I've tried so many times for so many years, that I'd given up several years ago and kind of wiped them out of my mind.  At 1230, there was a station break with an announcer with a non-NAm accent and I THINK that I heard "Cornerstone."  KTWG is "The Cornerstone, AM 800" and runs religious programs 24-7, most syndicated.  I'll be reviewing the tape and sending KTWG a report this weekend with a recording and the name of the syndicated show.... here;'s hoping.  This is a presumed logging for right now, but "I'd bet my pension...."  Oh, by the way, the station was coming in so well that getting it on the E100 by off-tuning one kHz (802 kHz)  was no problem.... thanks to Guy Atkins' Murata IF filter mod.

Here are the Ultralight loggings:

567 JOIK, NHK1 Sapporo Japan 8/22/2008 1226 NHK1 //594
801 KTWG Agana Guam  8/22/2008 1328 Franchise Christian programs change at 1330
855 4QB Pialba Australia 8/22/2008 1340 // stronger 1548 with Local ABC net programming
936 Anhui RGD Hefei China 8/22/2008 1234 CC Talk
1314 JOUF Osaka Japan 8/22/2008 1248 JJ Romantic Play (Soap Opera)
1557 WYFR Fam.Rad Kouhu Taiwan 8/22/2008 1258 Hymn, Fam.Radio TS, then CC talk by fem

Well, I'm up to 83 TP Ultralight loggings.... in 16 countries.  I did some planning for the assault on 100 TPs... it might just be possible this season, but its going to take both work and luck. I'm sure going to try.  Getting to twenty countries, TP may just not be possible... certainly not this season.  After 20 years with the big radios, I'm only in the low 20s out here and several of those QSLed countries (Tuvalu, Vanuatu and Solomons, New Caledonia) are either off the MW air entirely or are unheard here in a number of years.  I expect to get Viet Nam 675 when the fall season is in full cry, but from there.... Kiribati and Micronesia are possibilities at some point, but that leaves me at 19..... hummmmmm.  Maybe China will break into at least three pieces as has been predicted at times. Hummmmm.

Well, thanks to Ultralighting  (and 4HI + KTWG) this was my most enjoyable DXpedition in many years... what a blast.

I'll combine all my Ultralight loggings and get together a DXpedition report in the next few days.

Thanks for discovering this stuff, Gary!!!

Gary;

I guess it's the difference between direct and circumstantial
evidence. In case of the latter it's up to the jury.

So for the moment I'm listing WOMN-1110 as tentative. Looking at my
log, I'd already logged KGFL-1110. But I did hear KDIS, KYKK, WBT and
Radio Guadalupana for the first time, all for the first time. The
down side was having to listen to KFAB QRM!

Overall it wasn't a bad week with 15 new stations logged.

I hope you've had as good a week DXing as me.

Sunset Dxing and later under the stars  at Topsail Beach, Newfoundland last evening with the SRF-M37V and SRF- 39FP barefoot.
 
Nothing new of any sort but conditions were excellent and very low noise being out and  away from St. John's. Unusual evening in that strong transatlantics which usually occur to start with were weaker and Canadian and American stations dominated early on.
 
A few logs as follows:

Station identification.

bbwrwy
 

How much lee-way is permitted in claiming reception of a station? In
the past it's been my practice to only claim reception of a stations
if I heard something unmistakably identifying the station. But I've
noticed some DXers claiming reception on sketchy information.

I really never thought much about it until yesterday. While listening
on 1110 kHz, at 1100 UTC, I heard a partial call through Radio
Guadalupana and KFAB's signals. All I heard was "K?FL Studios". My
guess it was KGFL, Clinton AR (6 kW @ 458 km). That was immediately
followed by a seven-day weather forecast from another station. There
was nothing remarkable about it other than a low/high tide forecast.
No location was heard and the signal quickly faded out. I've checked
weather/tide forecasts on the Internet and looks like it could be New
Orleans. So, is it enough to claim I heard KOWN, Chalmette LA (21
Watts at 911 km)?

While listening on 790 kHz last evening, I heard the unmistakable time
pips and CW ID of Radio Reloj under KXXX, Colby KS. Even though I
didn't hear a voice, can I claim reception of the Cuban station?

In the past, I would have just listened again on the frequency until I
heard the questionable station.

What is allowable? In the end I realize it's an "honor" system. What
are your feeling on the matter?

Good DX,
Richard Allen.


Re: Station identification.

Gary DeBock
 

Hello Richard,
 
     Our Ultralight DX Awards program does indeed emphasize the honor system in station identification, and this concept certainly assumes that the DXer will fully investigate and evaluate all possibilities before claiming a reception.  In general, each DXer has the responsibility to ensure that his loggings are trustworthy beyond a reasonable doubt, and that the claimed loggings are reasonable in consideration of propagation, language, format, etc  The general principle is that the value of the loggings is only as good as the DXer's standard of station identification (and investigative work, if necessary).
 
     AM-DXers will usually go out of their way to answer questions about station formats, ID slogans and other programming clues, in efforts to help someone with an UnID question.  Although every DXer must set his own standard of station identification, it's necessary to have conclusive evidence before logging, although this may delay the process.  Eventually 99% of the mysteries clear up, although some never do, unfortunately.

A better Sony SRF-M37V?

Dennis Gibson <wb6tnb@...>
 

I just found a couple of radios that I'd forgotten I owned. One is a
Sony SRF-M80V. It's the predecessor of the Sony SRF-M85V, which is in
the turkey farm; it's described as cute but deaf.

This is cute too but definitely not deaf. It's as sensitive as my
DeBock souped-up SRF-59! It's not as selective but I wouldn't call it
barn-door selectivity like the SRF-M37V. I have three AM's one mile
away all using the same tower; seeing three STL antennas on one tower
is weird. All are 1 KW or less and non-directional. It behaves less
well around them than almost all of my non ultralight radios. I'll
have to get it a few miles away from them and see what happens. It
also has TV sound for all the good that will do in about six months,
FM and the weather band.

The other is also in the turkey farm but it deserves to be there. It's
the Sangean DT-110. It's described as "Xin and Amazon say Turkey".
Dennis says turkey too. It's fairly numb and has barn-door
selectivity. Local AM's sound great through good headphones. The only
good part is that it was free. I got it free at the Discovery Channel
store when I spent more than $50.00. It has the Discovery Channel logo
on it.

Does anybody here have both an Eton E100 (the old version) and E10? I
think my refurbished E10 should do better on MW. It's great on SW. At
least I only paid $30.00 for it. Everyone's description of how
sensitive the E100 is sounds better than my E10 is. The Sony SRF-M80V
leaves it at the starting line.

Hi Kevin,

The Sony SRF-M37V is indeed a puzzle-- an Ultralight with fairly
decent sensitivity but barn-door selectivity, in stock form. Allen
Willie in
Newfoundland has used it to receive more new TA countries than all
other
Ultralight DXers combined, but for most of us, it's just not as
competitive as an
SRF-T615, E100 or DT-200VX.

During a recent visit to Oregon, I noticed the new SRF-M37W
model for
sale at a Fred Meyer, so I picked up one for the Ultralight Summertime
Shootout. It looks almost identical to the SRF-M37V, but the TV
audio coverage has
been replaced by weather band coverage (like the DT-200VX and
DT-400W).
Price was $34.95, like the old SRF-M37V. It hasn't been tested out
yet, but if
Sony improves the AM IF filter in this new model, it would make a huge
difference for us (even though it's probably wishful thinking).

The 450 kHz IF of the model makes some decent filter
modifications
possible (as you and Jim have experienced), but the E100's 1 kHz
tuning steps
provide a huge advantage for 9 kHz split-frequency DXing, to chase
TP's and
TA's. The 455 kHz IF of the E100 also makes installation of some
VERY effective
IF filters possible, such as the Murata CFJ455K5 ceramic filter.

Your modified SRF-M37V's would make a very interesting project
for a
large loopstick transplant, Kevin. We have discovered that whenever a
selectivity boost is combined with a major sensitivity boost, an
Ultralight suddenly
becomes an Ultra-effective DX chaser.

21 August - Third Morning at Grayland: YEE-HAW!!

John H. Bryant <bjohnorcas@...>
 

Friends,

After two good but fairly pressure-packed  DX mornings, I sort of anticipated a more leisurely AM today, cruising up the band noting all the stations that I'd logged on the first two AMs and logging a few new ones in a gentlemanly fashion.... there just couldn't be that many more stations available right now.  I did hope that the North Koreans would reappear and at such strength that I could nail another Ultralight country in the rapidly declining number of those left. Sounded like a plan to me. 

The general pattern of receptions was a match to the two previous AMs.... from about 1120 (LSR around 1320). As usual, when I tuned in, there were a few weak DUs around and the Asians, especially the Japanese, were already in at very good levels. As time wore on, the Chinese gained in number and strength. but with more JJs appearing, too, along with BOTH Koreas. Also as usual, dawn marked the demise of most of the Asians, to be replaced with lots of hets and weak DUs. The DUs lasted even longer than usual after dawn. I quit at 1400 and there were still several bits of audio around.

So, the general pattern was as expected. What was not anticipated at all was the pace of logging new stations. Although few signals were at astounding levels, general conditions were just excellent, and wide-spread, too.  I kept very busy logging new stations, totalling 12 new Ultralight TPs today and shocking myself by adding FOUR new countries (North Korea, Russia, Taiwan and East Malaysia!!!)

To top things off, I was tuning up the band one last time with the 313e, more than 30 minutes after dawn and, as I passed 1143 kHz, this Aussie sez, plain as day "4HI......" followed by a brief slogan and into a pop song. I could not believe it! In 18 years of DXing out here, I've NEVER heard 4HI... wasn't really aware that it existed. I quickly dialed 1143 on the E100, while the song was playing (it was THERE, too!) I got my internal recorder going and waited for the song to end.  Things were fading fast, but the song was over and there it was again "4HI" with a very processed sound. The signal faded during the third number.  4HI is a 5 kW commercial Aussie in Emerald, Queensland and may set another new 5 kW distance record... I'm gonna have to measure carefully, as 4TAB in Townsville is the current record.

So, it was an excellent morning, over all, but I'll treasure the 4HI logging as one of those real gems that comes along only once or twice a season, if that.

The Ultralight loggings:

648 V. of Russia Ussur, Sib. Russia 8/21/2008 1300 Russian M. approaching TOH; Bells of Moscow?
729 5RN Adelaide Australia Oceania 50 8/21/2008 1331 "ABC News" with M+W

1323 GovoritPekin Shuanghyashan? China 8/21/2008 1158 Quiet mx to TOH, then Russian male ann.
1475 RTM Labuan Kota Kinabalu East Malaysia 8/21/2008 1144 Hrd. On 1474 to miss 1476 QRM. Slight undermod
1566 HLAZ* Cheju Isl.* South Korea*  8/21/2008 1241 Heard Barefoot: T615; Was S-8 on 313e

Total of 12 new Ultralight loggings with the 837 Broadcaster to Taiwan as a tentative.  I'm hoping for ID help from Chinese friends, though I have not yet gotten a good TOH recording.

And I forgot to mention, amidst all to the cheering and Chickasaw war dances, I managed to log a solid HLAZ-1566 as my second TP Barefoot... second country, too, with the Sony T615.

There were lots of relogs from Asia and DU, but I'll not list them... all were common, many were listed here on previous AMs.

Well, my total TP station count is now above 80, and I dare to hope to hit 100 this season.  I'll have two more DXpeditions down here this fall and the Chinese come in fairly well at my home on Orcas. You can bet that I'll be ultralighting every AM!

Thanks to Ultralighting, I'm having more fun this season than any for many years.... and every one of those past seasons was fun, too!

YEE-HAW!

Re: Great Second Morning at Grayland

Guy Atkins
 

Stephan,
 
It was that plot you reference, by radio amateur KK6IL, that convinced me this filter is an excellent choice for upgrading my E100. A shape factor of 1.4 is *excellent* for a ceramic filter; this is more like the shape factor of the best of the expensive crystal filters such as INRAD models I have used, or the ICOM FL-44A. 
 
The best crystal filter shape factors I know of are in the 1.3-1.4 range. However, top grade crystal filters are much too large to fit inside the E100, but the CFJ455K5 is *just* small enough to fit within the E100.
 
The CFJ455K5 is the same filter used as the narrow 2.4 filter in the larger Eton E1. Maybe that is why the E100 is so happy with this particular filter upgrade  :^)

In fact, it's a 2.4 kHz nominal filter (sez p05e9.pdf). This
one measured 2.9 kHz @ -6 dB:

Shape factor is about 1.4, not too shabby. It's not clear

must be at least 9. Nice metal cased SSB filters in any case.

I am starting to have issues with the change band button locking up.
when this happens i cannot change the band. to correct it i need to
remove the batteries and hit reset quickly and put batteries back in
before the time is lost. the radio has been used heavily this summer
but not abused . it was always transported in its soft pouch. perhaps
something i wearing out or has worked loose under the hood. i don't
see any other reports of this so i know its just mine acting up any
suggestions. forget pulling it apart i will end up destroying it . i
may have to just live with it at worse.


Re: SRF-M37V

Hi Phil:

I too love this little unit. RadioLabs sells a 4.5 khz filter (LTS 450GW)
intended for Sangean 909 retrofits with the 450 khz IF. They also have a
3.0 or 3.3 khz model, but the 4.5 makes domestic listening quite enjoyable
and really does the job. The filter manufacturer's spec sheet is at:
http://www.euroquartz.co.uk/pdf/ceramic-lts-450w.pdf

The filters aren't listed on the RadioLabs web site, but below is what the
guy said a few months ago in response to an inquiry. Note that RadioLabs
doesn't have the same name for the filters as the manufacturer, and I
can't recall if the SFR450J (RadioLabs' part number) corresponds with the
4.5 khz LTS-450GW, so make sure you ask the phone rep!

OK... I'm sure I saw a post that indicated that a filter can be installed
in this puppy to improve it's selectivity.

I've been using this as my "ultralight of choice" for a while (mostly
'cause it's digital and I tune around a lot while I'm driving)... so I
want to improve the selectivity before the fall season (when the TPs come
in here in Seattle).

  Welll UPS arrived today with my new SANGEAN DT-400W Ultralight Radio!! A nice looking little set ....in spite of being YELLOW!!! Haven't had time to try it out yet....as we had a nice TROPO DX Opening on the FM Band today....and I was busy DX'ing Fm'ers from Northern Michigan, Indiana and SW Ohio!! Now that things have settled down on FM.....I think I'll take the Sangean out on the back deck....away from the Internal House Noise and give it a casual listen...just to what it hears during the daytime.....

Just took 2 days to get here...so I wasn't on Pins and Needles for too long!!

73.....ROB.
