International MW DXing with Ultralights


Steve Ponder <n5wbi@...>
 

I can hear Radio Reloj under WWL 870 almost every night.
Discovered them while listening to WWL's coverage of
Gustav. Had never heard a RR outlet there before.

73 & Great DX,

Yup! The SRF-59 was inside a passive loop, but RVC had taken the channel
over, so it would have been receivable barefoot that night.

Thanks, Kevin,

Didn't you also hear RVC, Turks and Caicos???

Hey John:

A couple years ago I heard Radio Progresso on top of 900 khz - it was on
the Sony 7600GR, but would have been heard on just about anything. That
was a one-off, but shows that these signals do get through. I was just
after local sunset, when things like that from the East seem to make
there
way out here.

Richard,

Thanks very much for that report on Cubans heard in the center of the
country.... I'll definitely include that in the tip sheet.

John:

Several Cuban stations can be heard on an ULR in northern Oklahoma
almost every night. The best time seems to be in the hour after local
sunset.

Radio Rebelde 670, 710 and 1180 kHz.
Radio Enciclopedia 530 kHz (easy listening music).
Radio Musical 590 kHz (classical music).
Radio Reloj 570 kHz.
Radio Progresso 640 and 890 kHz.

Radio Rebelde on 670 is the easiest to hear and it has a short wave
parallel on 5025 kHz.

I've also noted the time pips and CW ID of Radio Reloj recently on
790, 930 and 950 kHz.

Maybe this will be helpful to other DXers in my region.

Richard Allen.

I've gotten both Mark and Gary's comments/tips on TA and TP DXing gathered together to make a tip sheet for us, but I sure would like to add a similar section on Central and South American stations most likely heard.  I wonder if Mark, you would give us a similar list there....  and maybe Rob Ross could add an inland perspective or Kaz???

Then I'll make a PDF and put it on dxer.ca.
