Thanks mark. I have respected your insights for some time.
As for the nrc newsletters, it could be that I just glossed over the ta/tp
reports due to lack of interest. And let's face it, 50+yrs. Can erase a lot
of memory!
Thanks for your kind recollections on behalf of all of us.
Btw: my best ever catch was ksl 640 back in 1966 using e-w 160'random
and a knight-kit r-100a. I think it took almost a year to catch! Modest by
today's standards but.
After that girls, cars, lack of interest in dx. Back to the buttons in 2006.

Craig Barnes' TP-DXpedition to Princeville, Kauai, Hawaii (Part One)  View Printable Version 
Friday, April 28 2017

IRCA
Craig Barnes of Wheat Ridge, Colorado is currently enjoying a vacation in the Hawaiian Islands, which will include stays in both Princeville, Kauai and Kona on the Big Island. For DXing purposes he is using a stock Tecsun PL-310 Ultralight model boosted by one of the new 5 inch "Frequent Flyer" FSL antennas. This is a new type of compact FSL specifically designed for long distance airline travel, constructed to easily pass through TSA security screening checkpoints while still providing serious inductive coupling gain (roughly similar to that of a 4' air core box loop).

Whereas TP-DXing in Colorado might feature weak audio from one or two big gun Asians on a good day, the situation in Kauai is drastically different! Craig has suddenly had a huge amount of strong TP-DX every morning-- in unfamiliar languages on unfamiliar frequencies. At the same time he is doing his best to master operation of his new FSL antenna, which depends on razor-sharp tuning and optimal inductive coupling ranges for its best performance. Overall he is doing a great job in tracking down the TP-DX in his first Hawaii DXpedition, considering the multiple challenges he is suddenly facing all at once. In an effort to assist him I am posting this list of the TP-DX that he has received so far in Princeville, Kauai, together with the links for the many related videos that he has already uploaded to YouTube.
