Hi Walt,

The ILG databases have been back for a couple of years or more; I've
subscribed (again) to the service for almost that long. Bernd Friedewald
(DK9FI) is as passionate as ever about the accuracy of the data. I use his
files to import into programs like CSVUserListBrowser. The web site
remains: www.ilgradio.com

Ergo has indeed kept up with the SDR support, and will control Perseus and
others. I fire up this program every now and then; I really like his near
real time propagation integration, with the neat graphs of MUF levels and
so on (HF only)... and the map displays with short & long paths visible.
BTW, the author of ERGO, John Fallows, has a interesting blog for the
technically minded: http://ergo.fallows.ca/wp/blog/. He covers a lot of
topics I've not seen discussed elsewhere.

73,

Guy Atkins
Puyallup, WA

Quite a snarl again around 1340UT, with missed loggings I'm sure, but overall, I'd say a tad less Asian strength,a tad more Aussie strength, and perhaps some New Zealand. It's been quite a mix; hearing JOLK suddenly spending about 90 seconds beating the stuffing out of 4QR was decidedly odd, especially as the latter was so strong before and afterwards.

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

567 JOIK man and woman in Japanese //594 peaking 1334UT

594 JOAK man in Japanese 1330UT and many other times; still the one to beat

612 4QR man and woman DU English 1346UT, still very readable with teletalk 1421UT and then finally fading for good

747 JOIB English lessons 1330UT

774 JOUB English lessons 1346UT, but generally poorer than this

972 HLCA man in Korean then "singing lessons" 1336UT

1566 HLAZ choir 1250UT, but never really got to this level later


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

576 2RN woman DU English 1344UT

693 JOAB English lessons 1331UT

702 NHK2 man in Japanese //774 1343UT

828 JOBB English lessons 1332UT

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

558 JOCR likely, pop music, woman in Japanese 1346UT

738 Taiwan Fisheries man talking //1143 1336UT

837 JOQR man in Japanese //594 1338UT

864 HLKR man in Korean //711 1336UT

873 JOGB English lessons 1331UT

945 CNR1 woman and man in Chinese 1340UT, but more laid back than usual

954 JOKR woman talking Japanese 1340UT

963 CRI man in Russian //1323 1340UT

1143 Taiwan Fisheries man and woman talking //738 1331UT, sounded almost Hindi, but guess Tagalog more likely?

1242 JOLF man in Japanese 1359UT, cuckoo pips 1400UT

1287 JOHR likely, Japanese pop 1339UT

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)

585 JOPB man talking //594 1332UT

585 7RN man talking //621 1332UT mixing with above

603 NHK1 brassy music //594 1332UT

603 woman talking, possibly Korean, but no parallel. Channe was a mess today. NZ might have been there too?

621 3RN man talking //585 1332UT

702 2BL woman talking //612 1336UT; light pop music also, not //NHK2, maybe Magic NZ?

711 HLKA man talking //864 1336UT

711 unID woman in apparent Chinese before HLKA faded up 1335UT

738 2NR woman talking //612 1352UT, mixing with Taiwan?

846 at 1333UT, NHK1, and 2RN mixing together , both // 585

891 JOHK Japanese pop //594 1347UT, but slow talking man also might have been 5AN?

909 soft ballad 1337UT, Star?

1017 Tonga likely with island vocals 1355UT

1116 pop music, 4BC? 1346UT

1134 JOQR? man and woman talking Japanese intonation 1336UT

1323 CRI man talking //963 1340UT

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

531 639 684 855 918 936 1053 1089 1098 1179 1215 1296 1332 1575 seemed to be Asian;
531 675 756 1098 1548 seemed to be DU

best wishes,

Nick

Perhaps I was not very clear.

The Grayland DXpeditions were "community"events where we ate together, did show and tells and did a few projects. A group thing.

Your trips are great, but they have a different purpose.


Chuck

A fine article, it is! Nice reading the article again, and bringing back
such nostalgic memories. Today, I'm still using B-Log, Total Recorder, and
Nick's updated DX Radar (Fishbarrel). I was a user of most of the
hardware/software mentioned. Today, it's DX Atlas that I still like for
sunrise/sunset information. ERGO was a fantastic advancement in DXing in
it's time powering my AOR 7030+ and HF-2050 receivers. ILG databases were
fantastic, as well, and still better than what I use now (the database
which shows up on Perseus is adequate, but not nearly as good as having the
PAL and MW List available. ERGO is still around, although I'm not aware of
anyone using it anymore, and whether it's kept up with the SDR revolution.
I know that it will power the Perseus, but not sure of the advantages, if
any of going that route anymore. My Cybiko is still in a box somewhere,
too, waiting for a chance for a new use! The big days of the west coast
DXpeditions seem to be over, unfortunately, with the demise of the Grayland
Motel, and more likely because we're all getting that much older! Thanks
for the memories! 73, Walt Salmaniw

Chuck nailed it on the head, I think. I'm missing the camaraderie of
DXpeditions of old. Having said that, I look forward to this Fall's PEI
DXpedition! 73, Walt
