Hello Ultralight-DX friends,

It is a great idea to open this group. I come from the Crystal Rx hobby
as probably many of you.
I live in Switzerland and I am proud to own
a SFR-39, SFR-49 and SFR59. Two of them had to be aligned by me and now
reward me with fine reception. Recently I bought an SFR-T615, but I
must admit, that it is inferior to the analog classics. Adjacent
channel separation is better on the SFR-59 series.
This is very important where I live, because the European AM Band is
full of power stations.
I live in an appartement without outdoor antenna and ground. So I
like to go outside with an SFR-59 and enjoy clear reception free from
electrosmog interference.

Peter,

WELCOME to the ultralightdx group and our community!!!  Those of us in North America have been having so much fun with these little wonders that we are doubly excited by a new DXer from across he ocean!  Be sure and take a look at the List of Ultralight Firsts and Records on the dxer.ca site. It is primarily a list for dxers in the Western Hemisphere, but the "world-wide" section is open to the accomplishments of DXers anywhere.  If enough Europeans become active in ultralighting, we'll have to help get a European-oriented list started.

For those of us from the traditional MW DX hobby, its doubly exciting to welcome another member from the world of crystal set DXing... we obviously have much to learn from the xtal crowd, for sure!

Hello Peter,
 
     Thank you for your introduction, and let me join John in welcoming you to the growing worldwide Ultralight DX team.
 
     Your impressions of the Sony SRF-T615 were also noted during my 2008 Shootout review (posted on dxer.ca), in which the selectivity was found to be worse than that of the SRF-59/39FP analog units.  However, for those North American DXers fortunate enough to live in quiet locations, the SRF-T615 (with its superior sensitivity) has proven to be very popular.
 
     John and I are both thrilled that crystal radio enthusiasts are joining our Ultralight DX ranks, and we also are very pleased that the MWN articles have inspired serious European interest in pocket raidio DX.  Please keep us informed about your DX accomplishments, and we wish you the best.
 
                                                                                                    73,  Gary DeBock

Hello Peter.....very nice to have you on the list from Switzerland!!!!! As
well as all the UK fellows, and even a Brazilian DX'er who has been
checking in as well!! It looks like ULR DX'ing is well on it's way to
becoming a worldwide phenomena.....good show guys and the boys over here in
North America look forward to seeing your loggings and input on the Hobby
of ULR DX'ing.

Keep spreading the word guys and lets see what we can do with our tiny
radios........I don't believe we have even touched the surface of what's
possible with a little time and effort.

Welcome to all our World Wide list members....it's a pleasure to have you
aboard!! Your expertise and knowledge will prove most beneficial to all the
list members.

Regards..........ROB.
