November Hawaii DXpedition-- We Have a Quorum  View Printable Version 
Sunday, March 10 2019

Last November the ocean beach location of Poipu, Kauai proved to be the mother lode of exotic DX, with propagation to all of Asia, the Pacific Islands, North and South America and even some long range MW-DX from the Middle East and Africa. The only "problem" was trying to sort out all of the exotic long range DX, with languages such as Arabic, Farsi, Hindi and many others. The Finnish language experts on Real DX got a Real Workout, and fortunately gave awesome assistance https://dreamcrafts.box.com/s/p21pc6hddkxejcnf8i3k9gp9ksxvsa0u

For this year's November trip Craig Barnes and I are honored to have a DXer with serious TA-DXing experience, who can help us really go after the African and Middle East big guns-- Chris Black, formerly of the Boston Area DX Group. Chris plans to be the first to set up a broadband antenna for SDR reception on the Poipu beach, and join us in tracking down another awesome MW-DX tally. Since there is a fully stocked Home Depot store only 20 minutes from the beach offering antenna wire, PVC pipe and concrete bases, the sky may be the limit in what three fanatical DXers can dream up.

The Ultralight + 5 inch "Frequent Flyer" FSL combo came away with long range DX from Oman, Egypt, Iran, India (2), Bangladesh, Myanmar, Cambodia, Thailand, Vietnam (5), Bonaire and many others last November, and we have a pretty good idea now what frequencies to exploit, and which ones to ignore. The "single DXer" price in the Costco travel package is only about $ 1.7K, which includes round trip air fare, 6 days in a gorgeous beach side condo, a full sized rental car and some other extras. If you have interest in joining the DXpedition of a lifetime, we would be honored to have you with us!

73 and Good DX,

Gary DeBock (in Puyallup, WA, USA)

Normally on 690khz, I hear CBKF1 Gravelbourg, Sask or KGGF Coffeyville, KS
but a few weeks ago I had some good copy on CBU for several minutes

This was recorded on Fri February 22, 2019 at 621 am mountain/521am pacific
using a 25 foot long by 10 foot tall wellbrook ala100ln loop connected to
an Icom IC746pro with audio fed directly out of the headphone jack to a
digital recorder

Audio link:

A CBC engineer whod know things tells me CBU is now running 20KW into 2
towers instead of its previously licensed 50KW/4 towers

TP 8 Mar Victoria version.  View Printable Version 
Saturday, March 09 2019

Pretty much a big gun morning, reduced somewhat by the fact that NHK2 signed off at 1440UT.

pretty darn good audio (all of it understandable by a native speaker, at least briefly):


Reasonable audio at times during the period (much of it understandable by a native speaker, though often battling with splash or noise):

594 //567 1443UT with jazz, then Japanese talk by man

747 JOIB 1424UT

774 JOBB 1430UT

not so reasonable audio, occasional words or phrases in splash or noise could be understood by a native speaker:

567 woman in Japanese 1404UT; weaker at 1443UT //594

972 HLCA 1430UT

Burbles in the splatter and noise (if lucky, language might be guessed at by cadence of talk, or parallel established by changes in talk or music)

the above, passing through

Strongish het, no or "near imaginary" audio (either undermodulated or ravaged by splatter)

603 693 702 819 828 891 981 1566 seemed to be Asian;

891 seemed to be DU
