Ultralight trip to Old Perlican ,Newfoundland

Allen Willie



Greetings All,


Just returned from a mini type dxpedition trip from the town of Old Perlican which is 102 miles Northwest of St. John's, Newfoundland  Latitude 48 N 53 W and is right along the ocean looking out towards Trinity Bay .


 Dxed with the Ultralight SRF-M37V  for 3 nights consecutively, the first night being the best of the 3 hearing quite a number of stations during the evening. Have a few photos also  of some of the sites I dxed from around the area, will post those to the photo section soon.


Here are only a few of the catches heard  during the time spent away  from home.

**** NOTE *****  The logging on 930 khz is a prime example of how with a single twist of the radio  you can null one station to hear another. I was able to null a St. John's station out completely to hear  the other in New Brunswick.on it's own
