DX Logs from SW Ohio


Mark Meece <antennapig@...>
 

Last night the first of hopefully many MONIX DX sessions was held in
the shelter area at the beach at Caesar Creek State Park, near
Waynesville, Ohio. Our geographical coordinates were:

N 39-30-48.4
W 084-01-13.7
Elevation 847 feet

We had four members present. Dan Schwartz, Dave Williams (N8DHW), Alex Kaminski, and myself. Two were DXing, two were learning the ropes and helping to spot.

Alex (N8UCN) and myself (N8ICW) were doing the main DXing which started just after 6:00 PM.

Both of us were using ultralight radios. Alex was using the Sony SRF-M37V.
I was using my newly acquired Sony SRF-59, I was also using my GE Superadio II and Grundig YB400PE as spotting receivers. No special antennas were utilized.

Hey Mark:

It's great that the 4 of you got out. As an urbanite who lives in and
amongst a lot of RF noise, your trip summary gives me inspiration to do
the same when the weather improves a bit. With the little ULRs, the entire
DX kit can fit in the the glove compartment! It would probably be an early
morning outting here on the West Coast to hopefully catch stations to the
east switching to day power/antennae and/or trans-pacific targets.

Hi Mike,

It was a blast. The weather was nice, just a tad chilly.
It was clear and sunny with a stiff breeze that
made it feel more like the mid forties than the lower fifties of the
actually temperature. As the sun started to set just before 8:00 PM
local, the temperatures started a fairly rapid drop.

Hi Kevin,

We live in a dense urban environment also, fortunately a half hour drive can
put us in a nice rural setting where the man made noise is lessened considerably.
As you tell from the logs it was mainly a north/south path for this session.
