Newfoundland Ultralight Radio Trans-Atlantics & Domestics Repoort April 6-7


Allen Willie
 

Hello To All,

We are continuing to enjoy our new location and the Dxing has been providing very entertaining evenings. The RFI here is next to nil obviously compared to back in St. John's and the powerhouse stations of the city are nulled enough to allow signals on the European and African split frequencies nearby to dominate.
Most of the distant domestics have been audible more so in the early mornng hours and very few audible so far in the evenings as the Trans-Atlantics have dominated with amazing strength.

Allen, it sounds as though your new QTH is working out very well. Sort of a "DXpedition at home" site like that of Martin Hall in Clashmore (coastal northern Scotland) and Patrick Martin in Seaside, Oregon (and the late Richard Wood near Hilo, Hawaii).

Several of us in eastern Massachusetts are getting many of these TA signals but most require a Perseus rather than an ultralight!

Hello Allen,

Your new oceanside DXing location sounds like a perfect venue for
chasing thrilling TA-DX on Ultralight radios. Let me be the latest to
congratulate you and Dianne on your fine taste in real estate!

Your Ultralight TA-DXing reports from Newfoundland have already made a
huge contribution to the popularity of pocket radio DXing around the
world, and we look forward to more of your thrilling reports from
Bristol's Hope. For the 99% of us who are landlocked, it's nice to
remember that better conditions are as close as the nearest ocean beach
(about 2 hours drive away, in my case).

73, Gary DeBock (in Puyallup, WA, USA)

Great results from your new location.

I'm impressed with the 3 Libyan catches. This is a country I still have to catch on 'ultralight' !

Infact the BBC 5 signal on 909KHz leaves a lot to be desired even at my location, with skywave echoes making it very poor at night.

Good Dx
