Calling John Bryant / Firsts and distance records


John H. Bryant <bjohnorcas@...>
 

Great, Paul...

I used the WJCC logging in both the Barefoot and Unlimited Class, since you heard it with and without the loop.  It set a new distance record in both categories for 1,000 watt stations. Congratulations!

John B.

Hi John,

look forward to seeing everyones new "bests" - this one may also interest you - the last logged for my 300 in 30 - it was armchair copy with a loop but also there weak on the internal antenna.

1700    WJCC Miami Springs FL    1kw    USA    06:15    04/06/2008 Sony SRF59 Barefoot - 4111 miles / 6616 km

Paul,

I just finished inputting your loggings into the Firsts and Records.... Congratulations!  You pretty much rewrote the Records at most transmitter power levels, for sure.  My records also indicated that the New Brunswick station was 1000 watts at night. And I used the Winter Garden, FL for the 1 kW, since it was your most distant.

I'll publish the list about Thursday and see that you get a copy!

Keep up the great work!
John B.

Hi John,

I mailed you some time back regarding firsts and distance records, I guess you didn't receive it so here goes again:

I have worked out that my first UL loggings from North America were as follows.

WWZN Boston MA, USA, 1510, 2-10-08, Sony SRF-59, Barefoot
(50 kw night 2941 miles / 4732 km)
CKEC New Glasgow NS, Canada, 1320, 2-10-08, Sony SRF-59, Barefoot
(25 kw night 2468 miles / 3972 km)

As for Unlimited class first one was

WTNI Biloxi, MS, 1640, 2-10-08, Sony SRF-59, Unlimited class
(1kw night 4214 miles / 6782 km)

These will also be of interest - looks like a new record for 50 kw:
WWVA, Wheeling WV, 1170, 4-4-08, Sony SRF-59 Barefoot
3425 miles / 5512 km.

Same for 10kw:
CBI, Sydney NS, 1140, 3-24-08,Sony SRF-59 Barefoot, 2351 miles / 3783 km

Nice 5 kw catch:
WLAM, lewiston, ME, 1470, 4-3-08, SRF-59 Barefoot, 2831 miles / 4557 km

New 1 kw record? (this one does run 1kw nights - right?)
CKNB, Campbellton, NB, 950, 4-4-08, SRF-59 Barefoot, 2530 miles / 4072 km

 I also have a slew of 1 kw x band loggings unlimited class mostly using a 4 foot loop with the SRF59.

1630    WRDW Augusta GA     1    05:35    30/03/2008    3788 miles    6096 km
1650    WHKT Portsmouth VA      1    05:32    30/03/2008    3399    5470
1670    WVVM Dry Branch, GA    1    05:37    30/03/2008    3887    6256
1680    WLAA Winter Garden, FL  1    05:40    30/03/2008    4019    6468
1620    WDHP Saint Croix USVI    1    06:10    02/04/2008    3931    6326
1700    WEUP Huntsville, AL    1    05:45    02/04/2008    3909    6292
1660    WFNA Charlotte NC    1    05:50    02/04/2008    3657    5885

I am fairly sure that I have had KVNS on 1700 Barefoot this would be 4794 miles but not willing to claim with no id - the station heard had oldies and KVNS is usually dominant here on this freq - amazing when you think they run 880 watts at night.

Hope these logs are of interest.

have you thought of a flea class for reception of 1 watters -  I have one at about 270 miles!.

Paul,

You might check the World Records at various transmitter powers. You might
be setting records for 50 kW stations, for instance. In any case, a great
set of loggings!

How much difference did the tweak make? I have a number of headphones;
the Sennheiser HD 420 sounds the best.

My SRF-59 and 39FP are stock; at some point I'll have Gary work his
magic on them. I do not disassemble electronic equipment. Disaster is
sure to follow.

Hi Dennis,

I have two SRF59's one was tweaked by me - as it turns out the tweak
brought radio # 2 up to the level of the other stock one in terms of
sensitivity so I may have got a "dud".

However I did get the 2nd radio to tune the x- band which the stock
Euro versions don't cover.

All of the TA signals outside the x band were heard completely
barefoot - x band catches were made by placing the radio inside a 4
foot loop.

Great little radio - I'm also very taken with its audio - I often
hear WLAA 1680 and the Mexican music sounds superb.
